December’s Calendar Cottage Girl for the last month of the year is…

Miss Sybil!!

Also Happy Birthday to Connie, Sandra and Alice!

Just finished the layout for the 2018 Calendar and hope to post a little snippet of the featured baskets shortly.

If anyone would like a 2018 Cottage Girl Basket Calendar, leave a comment or send me an email and I will put you on the list!

Follow Me on Instagram… I have five years of making up to do!

Instagram launched in 2010. I opened my account in 2012 and posted this in July of that year:

And I remember that drink – was out to dinner with my mom-and-dad-in-law and contemplated having a 2nd in front of them… that Pom-Tini was a strong drink! lol!

Despite being a fabulous cocktail, it sat there all alone for over 5 years. Until about 6 weeks ago I’ve been posting a pic just about every day. I feel like I’m starting all over again! As you can see in the snapshot below, I have just over 100 followers. If only I kept up with it for these last five years… ugh.

Anyway, if you are on Instagram, please follow me @theBasketMakersWife  I promise to follow back.

If you are not familiar with Instagram take a look. No stories… just Photos with a short description. It’s actually quite fun. I post pics of Eric in the workshop, his baskets, my paintings, and of course photos of Jaxson, Chance and CoCo Kitty sprinkled in between. Check it out here.

See you on Instagram!!

November’s Cottage Calendar Girl is…

Miss Pat!

It was a great month to highlight Pat Beagle’s lovely little basket.

Remember to contact me if you would like to be on the list to purchase 2018’s calendar. Just finished up the last photographs the past weekend and completing the final layout this week.
