There are so many truly talented artists and I am truly humbled and I thank you.
As I pass this award on, I think on how extremely giving Folk and Primitive Artisans are for offering us such wonderful designs,(some for free even) not only for our own love of the art, but that we may also provide for our own families. These ladies I nominate here
contribute so much through their genuine talent and Extreme generosity to the primitive artisan community...
My Heart-felt thanks to you all!!!

And O, so tickled to sign you up for an automatic monthly deduction from your Paypal account to make your life and business run smoothly.....ahhh...the ease and comfort you'll have with your shoppe in their hands, while they spend endless hours and tons of money on advertising and opening other sites and try to do their best for YOU! Or...is it just a tad bit, for themselves? I certainly HOPE so, it's their business. Right? You are just a flower in their pyramid bouquet. Cash is rolling in like mad and they open more sites, why? to make more money? for me?...no no no, I'm confused, it's for THEM! Right, cuz it's THEIR business. Okay, now, I'm on track. Got that right in my head now.
BUT, month after month...as those fees are deducted from my Paypal account, my little shoppe is rotting away. I'm watering it every 1st and 15th, just as the directions tell me to do. Even tossing in some 'free shipping' fertilizer! BUT, month after month, NO SALES.........................
So....THEY have THEIR business...and it's flourishing. I'm tickled.
I have MY business and it's dry and dying out. I'm not-so tickled.
Funds are diminishing in the Paypal account due to the lack of sunshine & sales at the flower shoppe along with other online places that have CUT my flowers down (ie, Ebay)
So, now, unfortunately, I'm going to have to cancel my shoppe that's bringing me in NO profit, month after month.
I email, nicely, even sadly, as I'm having to close shoppe. Always a sad event. Is there support and sweetness and words of comfort?? Was a met with "we are so sorry to see you leave, please come back as soon as you can and grow your business in our garden of prims. We know times are hard, but rest assured, they will get better. Keep creating, girl and hold your head up high!
We are certainly going to miss you. *hug* Let me assist you with the exit steps that it will take in order for us to stop the reoccurring payment so it won't continue to come out of your Paypal account..."???
NO!! I WAS NOT met with any such service. What I did receive was short, choppy, pissy little emails.
I explain I need to cancel my flower shoppe, unfortunately. And the first note wasn't too bad. "sorry to see you go, I have you scheduled to close on this date".
I was missing the hug, but I'm a big girl and didn't HAVE to have the hug. I thought it was all
well-n-good and as soon as my business funds allow, I'm ready to sign back on board the wheel barrel and plant more flowers!!
BUT....on 'the close date' in question. Fund are pulled from my Paypal account anyway. I email
again...I say "could you please refund the fees taken out?"
Email reply " I told you you'd have to cancel the subscription or the fees will continue to come out. I'll refund your fees today, if I can find the time".
WHAT? I'm looking around--digging thru past correspondences to see where O where that message was.................or WASN'T....
Later that day, they did find time to refund my fees. Thank you.
My Email reply..."I have two flower shoppes that I'm canceling all together. Fees are deducted on different days, please tell me how to cancel my subscription in my Paypal so we don't have to go thru all this again".
My request was ignored. I asked again.
In the meantime--back at the Paypal batcave--, I was frantic to figure out how to cancel my sub payment. I finally got that one canceled from the payment page, but nowhere could I find where my reoccurring payments were, so I could cancel the 2nd shoppe.
Well...then, I got another friendly reply from THEM. "you canceled the other shoppe. I got a notice. Do it the same way".
WHAT A BITCH!!! (a necessary word!!! Nothing else will fit.)
Finally, I found it out, ON my OWN. And got it canceled. Absolutely NO help from THEM.
Now, I know, without a doubt, I will NEVER sign back on board with that sour flower shop!!! And I'll gladly pass along to other unsuspecting Prim crafters the info---BEWARE!! If you have had these same problems or other similar hateful stories, give me a holler back.
IF you've had them, then you'll know WHO I'm referring to in a matter of minutes!!!
You'd think, someone taking your money and with you telling them, you 'want' to come back asap, that they'd be a bit sweeter to you. Obviously not. Customer Service exit support is in SHORT supply with this gal. It's night and day and all about that almighty dollar.
I'm done venting and going to erase this from my mind, in order to be able to create and have
a stress-free day. Plus the fact, that SHE/THEY are NOT worth my time.
I just hope all the other flower shoppe owners aren't treated as cold as I one was.
Sad, very sad.
My the karma gods of the Universe work fairly and swiftly.
OH, and IF YOU TOO, need to know how to cancel a reoccurring subscription payment in your Paypal account, just let me know. I'd GLADLY walk you thru the steps. :)
Love and Light to my Blog readers!!

Hug a TREE!
Wednesday, April 16, 2008
SMILE and enjoy :)
Sunday is named after Sunne (Sól), Germanic goddess of the Sun, from which the word Sun is also derived. The practice of naming the seven days after the then known "planets" goes back to Babylonian or Egyptian times and was adopted by Greeks and Romans.
Monday. It gets its name from the Moon, which in turn gets its name from Mani (Old English Mona), the Germanic Moon god. The Japanese word for Monday is getsuyōbi (月曜日) which means day of the moon.
Tuesday: The name comes from Middle English Twisday, from Old English Tiwes dæg, named after the Nordic god Tyr, who was the equivalent of the Roman war god Mars, and Greek god Ares.
Wednesday. The name comes from the Middle English Wednes dei, which is from Old English Wēdnes dæg, meaning the day of the Germanic god Woden (Wodan) who was a god of the Anglo-Saxons in England until about the 7th century. Wēdnes dæg is like the Old Norse Oðinsdagr ("Odin's day").
Thursday comes from the Old English Þūnresdæg (pronounced [θuːn.res.dæg] or [θuːn.res.dæj]), meaning the day of Þunor, commonly known in Modern English as Thor, the god of thunder in Norse Mythology and Germanic Paganism
Friday comes from the Old English Frigedæg (pronounced [fri.je.dæg] or [fri.je.dæj]), meaning the day of Frige, the Germanic goddess of beauty, who is a later incarnation of the Norse goddess Frigg, but also potentially connected to the Goddess Freyja.
Saturday is the only day of the week to retain its Roman origin in English, named after the Roman god Saturn associated with the Titan Cronos, father of Zeus and many Olympians.
And there you have it.
A reason to Celebrate!!
Lately my creating mood has slid over into the 'slightly bazaar' category. I'm a bit strange, I admit that! So...today, I have up for grabs, Voodoo Dolls. I have 4 different ones listed.
"The Baron Samedi", "Maman Brigitte", "Peace Love & Harmony", and "Ancestral Protection" dolls.
These are truly Primitive dolls.
Celebrate, Create and Grow!

For those of you that sell epatterns on ebay I wanted to share this with you in case you haven't heard. It appears as though anyone that sells epatterns/printables/web templates/graphics or any other type of electronically delivered (downloaded, emailed, etc.,) items on eBay starting on March 31st will no longer be allowed to do so. They are implementing a new policy.
So, I'm canceling my Ebay Store. You can still find finished Prims on Ebay's auction but for E-patterns you will need to see my following sites:
I'll still offer a couple of printed/paper Patterns on Ebay, but I'll be mainly selling from these other venues. NO E-Pattern Sales on Ebay!!! Bare this in mind.
I'll be changing ALL my E-patterns on my website to INSTANT downloads! And I'll be adding more Printed/paper Patterns to my website.
E-Patterns are fast, easy, and most of all, they help save the planet!! You print them at home on your own computer, therefore you can print just the pages you choose! Plus, it saves postage stamps, gasoline to deliver it to you, paper envelopes, ink, time and MONEY!
(not sure what Ebay is thinking!!??)
PLUS on my website, you can take advantage of my Pattern Special! Buy 4 get 2 Free!
And there's always a FREE Epattern on my website, plus Free E-classes too!
If you have any questions or comments, please, please, leave them here OR email me direct at
I'd love to hear from you!!
Brightest Prim Blessings,

I was tagged by Kelle of www.twodancingcrows.blogspot.com
Huckleberry Arts created a little blog tag here below as a graphic (save to your computer to use) you can use. Then just tag someone that interest you and ask them how they got there name if you get tagged please pick another or as many as you like to give this little graphic to and share your story on how your business name came to be :)
SO, here's my story:
'Moonchild' is my magickal, creative nickname I chose for myself a long time ago. To me, it represents magic, music, art, creativity, dance, laughter, talent, song, poetry, love, harmony and ME!
I've been known as 'Moonchild' by friends for many years now. For a while, I had a physical shoppe, simply called 'Moonchilds'. After closing that shoppe, later, I began making Primitives and although, I tried hard to think of another name for my online business, nothing else seemed to fit what I wanted to say and BE. So, thus came, 'Moonchilds Primitives'.
It's not the most exciting story, but it's mine.
KEEP ON PRIMMIN'!!!
So, NOW, it's MY turn to TAG someone!!
My tags are:

I'm excited over some new ventures I'm involved with.
Lemon Poppy Seeds is new and upcoming and I have a shoppe with them. I actually have two shoppes. One for finished prims and one for my Prim Patterns! Look for 'Moonchilds Primitives' under the Artisan Directory.
I'm also thrilled to be a part of Prim Sisters Talk Radio. The girls there are fantastic and do an excellent job! I do a segment there each week and offer free and discounted patterns along with other fine prim crafters. Have a look! There's a new show every Monday!!
I've also started listed a few items at Etsy. Many prim artists are moving to Etsy due to higher fees with Ebay. Not to mention the new Feedback rules have discouraged sellers. Not sure what's up with Ebay on that...time will tell.
BUT, if you would like a new place to list your items, check out Etsy. Listing fees are low and it's becoming more and more popular!
www.etsy.com My site is www.primitivewitch.etsy.com
Rather have an instructional E-class? I have some of those too! And hopefully, more to come.
www.ecraftclasses.com It's in affiliation with www.patternmart.com in which I've been a member there for a long time. You can also see my Eclasses on my website and get
FREE eclasses and a FREE epattern too!
Don't miss out.
That's all for now. I'll update more later.
Peace, Love and PRIM!
