From Texas to Zibbet with Love

As if the two little redheaded boys at the top of this shop weren't enough to draw me in....just look at this adorable toy sword offered by
2 Sleepyheads Quilted Creations

Every little swashbuckler I know would love one of these!  Please stop in and visit this fine Texas Zibbeteer.   You can find more items from our talented Texas group by searching Zibbet with the letters "zbtx".

More fine Texas art from

I love the feel of this shop...makes me want to sit on my Texas patio and have a marguerita!

This collection of original handcrafted stained glass mosaics is unique and well made.  Of course, my favorite is the LoneStar Mosaic Cross.  Stop by this shop and check it out.  Then you can find all the other fine Texas team members by searching zibbet with "zbtx". 

A Real Good Lookin' Stetson!

Today I'm featuring another of our Texas Zibbeteers:
                                Vintage Books

Richard has some unique and collectible items, including this vintage Stetson which appears to be in tip-top shape for a hat of it's age.  He's got lots of history on this hat too.  This shop is quite new, and is certainly an indication of the wonderful variety of goods you can find at Zibbet.  Please take a look around, and be sure to search using "zbtx" to find items from our Texas Team.  You'll be glad you did!

Do you Zibbet?

Do you Zibbet??  I do, and I LOVE it.

Zibbet is the hottest new outlet for handmade arts and crafts on the net.  It is user friendly, as well as real people friendly.  It has a warm and welcoming walking into a charming little shop on the lane when you've just left the Big Box Store on the freeway.   Yes, it's new and will definitely suffer some growing pains.  But for alot of us, it's our new Happy Place.

We've got a Zibbet Texas Team for Texans (and Texans at heart) and I'd like to feature team stores in my next few posts.  I think you will enjoy!  I'm starting with a fun and friendly honorary Texan, Wanitta Ranson of itsmythingdesigns.  She's witty and outgoing and even though she hails from Canada, she fits right in with our Texas group.  Please stop by her shop - you'll be glad you did!  Here is one of her many items (this gal never rests!)

Cupcake Corsages for Mothers Day or Prom

Organza is one of my favorite fabrics, and I fell in love with this rainbow blend. Take a look at our latest organza creation - Cupcake Corsages. These would be perfect for a lovely Mothers Day gift, or for prom. We've made matching earrings. We package each corsage on a reusable cupcake stand inside a ribbon tied cello wrap. Perfect for gifting!

Spring Picnics are in the Air

Planning a family barbecue or picnic? Here's a great recipe that's been a hit in our family for generations.

Easy Does It Meatballs or Cocktail Sausages

1 jar grape jelly (32 ounce)
2 jars Heinz Chili Sauce
1 lg. pkg. frozen meatballs
OR 2 pkg. Lil Smokies sausages

Combine the grape jelly with the chili sauce in a pot (works great in a crockpot). Add in the meatballs and simmer for about half an hour uncovered or until the sauce has thickened.

Serve from the pot, or for a nicer presentation, remove meatballs from the sauce onto a serving tray and serve with cute embellished toothpicks.

More Nuts!!!

Well, hope everyone had a Happy Easter. The weather in Texas was lovely (our part of it at's a VERY large place). We did a bit of "hunting" in the woods and found another batch of "hearted" hickory nut shells. Seriously, we found lots of shells, but very few with these perfect heart shapes. Good news: we found enough to lower the price to $20 for each pendant. We also found several that will make up as sets for Half Heart pendants. Cant wait to get those listed!

More big news! We've just opened another shop at
and we'd like for you to stop by & say Hello. Looking forward to making some new friends there.

Dont forget to join us on twitter too.
