Friday Freebie

Congratulations to Joy of Vintage Verses!
Joy is our lucky winner of last week's Friday Freebie from Painted Panache and will receive the lovely hand-painted tea-bag holder!
This week it is my absolute pleasure to introduce you to Annie, of Homespun Annie and Old Annie Primitives!

What is the name of your shop? And why did you choose this name?
My shop is called Homespun Annie. When my sister-in-law and I started selling crafts together back in the 80's, we called ourselves Homespun Treasures. Liked the "homespun" and just added my name to it!
What type of items do you offer?
I make mostly ornies and bowl fillers (or tucks, as I like to call them). My style is more of a rustic, country primitive. I also enjoy making gatherings and greeters using my tucks. And I've recently started making my three tiered pin keeps, as well as many one-of-a-kind pin keeps.
How long have you been crafting?
I've been crafting and sewing since I was a little girl, but started selling my goods when I became a SAHM 23 years ago.
Who or What inspires you?
At this point it has to be 23 years worth of trying so many different craft mediums and having SO many different supplies as a result. I'm at the point I'll see some of my craft supplies I've had for years, not knowing why I have them or what I want to do with them...and then finally seeing something totally new I can create using them.
What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
It would have to be my bumblebee tucks. These are the cutest little fellows, so fun to make and the finished product is so satisfying for me.
What else would you like our readers to know?
I have just started offering epatterns for almost all my tucks. Slowly adding new patterns almost daily. And soon will be adding epatterns for make-do's, bag greeters, and hangings.
You can find Annie through her Etsy Shoppe, homespunannie, as well as through her two online shoppes, Homespun Annie, and Old Annie Primitives. And for the latest crafting endeavors from this talented lady, be sure to check out Old Annie Primitives' blog!
And now for the Friday Freebie!
One lucky reader will win these adorable bowl fillers (Annie calls them "tucks") and just in time for Valentine's Day!
