Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Dirt Road Team - Melbecreations and PWOriginals

I'm back with two more wonderful shops from the Dirt Road Team on Etsy.  I was away welcoming home my son and daughter in law from Afghanistan.  The first shop is Melbecreations, come and meet Melissa the owner of this shop.  She comes from Minnesota, where she loves to photograph Mother Nature.  Once she has her pictures done she turns them into some amazing kaleidoscopes.  Each picture can make many different kaleidoscopes.  Melissa then turns these kaleidoscopes into prints for framing, note cards, sun catchers, ceramic titles and pendents.  Check out each one to see if you can find the animal or flower that made up each one.  Melissa is also are team cheerleader, promoting each of us on Facebook, Pinterest and more.

The next shop is PW Originals, come and visit with Pam from Virginia. Pam designs, creates, sews, shops for fabrics for her wonderful purses, scarfs, pillows, pincushions. She even has purses and bags for girls and young ladies. Pam started sewing at a young age, making money sewing formals gowns with a rented sewing machine. She made all her clothes in college! Her love of fabric shows in the care of each items she makes. Pam has a kind word for everyone on the team, and keeps us going! Besides sewing well, she volunteers at the hospital local gift shop. If you are on Etsy and live in a small town, come and visit with the rest of the team. We love all forms of art!
