*NEW* Nashville Releases are now Live in my Etsy!

Whew! You all knocked my socks off with your warm welcome of my new Nashville designs! It is always SO hard to estimate how many charts to take with me to Market, and I try really hard to keep it as minimal as possible, since I have to ship charts there, then pay again to ship any unsold charts back home. Well, I greatly underestimated your love of a few of my new designs, and therefore spent the entire week upon my return, filling backorders to the shops that attended.

Oh my goodness, was this year's Market ever a busy, happy, full-of-smiles-and-laughter-and-scrambling-to-keep-up weekend! I feel so blessed to get to continue to do this designing gig, which I honestly thought would never amount to more than just-for-fun. But you have turned it into a full-time job for me, and I couldn't be happier with the arrangement. You keep supporting me and I'll keep designing! Deal?

Anyway, I apologize wholeheartedly for the delay, but I finally have my 4 general-release designs now available in my etsy shop.

If you have your eye on my Prairie Life Sampler, please go seek out one of the shops that attended Market to purchase it. This chart will be exclusively available from the 150+ attendees that bought from me until sometime in early April. When I make my two new April designs available for purchase, I'll also add Prairie Life to my Etsy shop. Until then, go support my favorite shops scattered across the country (and around the world!).

Here the new designs are, in no particular order:

I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address ( and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed.. If you are in need of any kind of loan, i advise you contact Progresive Loan INC and be financially lifted Email: OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565
