A little Bit About Me

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Yep, this is my family and we would love to wish all of you a very Happy New Year!!
We did something this year that we don't usually do: we took down the Christmas tree.....:( I miss it already! We generally don't take her down until AFTER the New Year, but it just seemed right to do it today, so she's gone for another year.

We usually spend a very quite New Year's at home and are in bed before midnight. With this being said, I have been working to restock my website Someplace in Thyme and so this is what I am sharing with you this week.
This is a romantic strawberry sachet that I just completed and listed. I hope you enjoy her.
I have also started a new line of Romantic Pocket Sachets and the one below is the first one in the new series. Each sachet will come with a pocket on the front to place a love note, gift tag or whatever you would like for a keepsake.

I usually do not showcase my work on this blog, but instead use my biz blog. If you are not familiar with my biz blog or would like to see what I have been up to, you can find me at Someplace in Thyme2. 
As always, I welcome your comments.
My wish for you tonight is to be safe, have fun and most of all HAPPY NEW YEAR. I look forward to chatting with you all in 2011!!
Thank you so much Beverly for being the best hostess with the mostess. You have made Pink Saturday a treat for us all.....THANK YOU!!

With Sandy home for the holidays I've beeing going to all the stores I've been wanting to go to but never made it! Isn't that always the way!?!

Wishing you and yours a fabulous 2011!

What lovely sachets! When I was young, I had a couple of friends who made them - what sweet family memories you have blessed me with. And these are so lovely - perfect for Valentine or Mother's Day gifts - for elderly parents on down to sweet granddaughters. Thank you for sharing them for Pink Saturday. :)
