Summertime Art by FAAP on Etsy

Wuf wuf from me, Charcoal

Summer has arrived 
in Middle Tennessee 

The fireflies, 
or lightening bugs, 
 as we call them, 
are blinking their green lights...

Tree frogs are everywhere 
and I don't see how something 
so small can be so loud. 
(Bark, bark, bark)

We have had our 
second frog visitor 
in the house for the season!

He thought he had found the Beach!!

He was a pretty green!

Mommie is comfortable or cold, 
and I am hassling 
to beat the drum! 
She felt sorry for me 
and turned on the 
air conditioner before June. 
90° days are warmish...
wuf wuf

This is a family favorite--

perfect for any time of year,
 and oh, so, easy to make! 

Pink Stuff

1 can Cherry Pie Filling
1 LG can Crushed Pineapple, drained well (drink the juice!)
2 or 3 bananas, sliced--ripper ones taste better! (Mash if you are going to freeze it)
Regular size Tub of Cool Whip, thawed
2 large hand fulls of mini marshmallows
Sugar to taste (maybe 1/4 cup)
Pinch of Salt

Mix well.
Chill and Enjoy

This can be frozen, but it is better to make it with strawberries or cranberries...I don't know why...lol

It is a lazy day in Middle Tennessee 

so I thought I would 
catch you up on what is happening 
with the 
FAAP TEAM on Etsy.

And Oh,
YAY Nashville Predators!!

This last week, 
we focused on updating the

on Facebook.

We realize that many of our customers don't shop on etsy, and we want to keep YOU updated as to what we are creating, with the hope you will become comfortable shopping on etsy. 

* * * * * * 

That brings up a new feature on etsy. You can now SHOP without having to join etsy. They have created a GUEST CHECKOUT. We are pretty excited about this, so keep it in mind.
* * * * * * 

FAAP MARKETPLACE was created as another tool to help our team to connect to our customers and friends.

We have had a few auctions, but it has never been a great success, but we haven't given up. We are always trying to improve what we do! 

We spent this last week doing some house cleaning and updating.

When you enter FAAP MARKETPLACE, you will notice it is like any other page--lots to see! 

What makes FAAP MARKETPLACE unique is that each member of FAAP has the opportunity to add an album of their creations. This way, if you have a favorite artist, and we KNOW you do, you can easily find their album to see what they have created! 

We are going to try to do better, so join us, and visit often! We love to create.

The FAAP MARKETPLACE is a group page. Search it on facebook, and ask to join. We would love to have you.

I picked out just a few of my favorite things from FAAP MARKETPLACE, to get your attention! I'm including the Etsy shop links, too, so you can go visit these shops...just click on the blue to MAGICALLY appear! 

We WUF your support and encouragement...

Thank you!! Wuf wuf...
