What's Been Happenin


Alot has been happenin at Mustard Seed Originals! I attended "Glitterfest" in Santa Ana, California, this past weekend. If you live in the local area, I would HIGHLY recommend attending in the fall, October 2nd from 10:00 t0 3:00. You will be so glad you did.

This show was chock full of all sorts of artwork. No imports!! Just pure art. Wonderful jewelry, primitive dolls, crazy dolls from Christy Salacci, halloween art, felted designs by Kerry Schmidt of Papermoon Gallery HERE , and too much to mention. There were shoppers galore.

I got to meet alot of great customers new and old. I was offering a drawing for my little doll that was featured in PRIMS as a giveaway. Each $50 purchase received an entry for her. The person who won was Lonnie Jenck, from Oregon. So this little doll is being sent to her today. BTW I sold the Americana set of mother and daughter that was featured in the PRIMS magazine at Glitterfest.

Cudos to my husband, Mike, for helping me at the show.He's a great salesman and my best fan. Everyone's items were great. Don't miss it in October.

I finally got my spinal cord nerve stimulator implant about a month ago and it is working fantastically!! Now, if I could get rid of this fibromyalgia I would be brand new. Really this scs implant makes life great. I have so much energy but I have to be careful and not overdo or I will pay for it. It's hard because there's so much I want to do now and for someone who basically wasn't able to do anything, my muscles are weak and I have to go slow. But I would recommend this to anyone in pain.

On another note, I will be restocking my website with all new goodies left over from the show and more. However, me and hubs are taking a much needed vacation meeting my dad and stepmom. We haven't seen them for about 3 years. Time flys.

Okay that's it for now. I'll leave you with these photos of some of my designs at Glitterfest. Not the best photos but you can see some of my new stuff. Enjoy!
