Happy Monday - A Bit of Paris!

Hello and welcome. I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday weekend. I have been busy getting ready for Pink Friday at Make Mink Pink! Here are a few goodies. The first is a journal called "Parisian Dreams." It is over the top with pink and glitter. It is one of my favorites. It is a bit difficult to tell but it is striped if you do a close up. It was such fun to make. The little purse tag is sort of an experiment. It was funny, I sat there staring at it when I was done and kept saying 'I have seen this somewhere before' . . . duh, then I realized it is pink and shaped sort of like the MMP bag logo. Silly me. Finally, there is a not too good picture of a journal I made as a custom order for one of our own. I won't say who until she sees it first. I made a little window with a shade and roses growing out of the window box. The inside tag reads, "Love what you do, Do what you love." Words to live by I think. Well, that is all for today, have a wonderful Monday! Hugs all!

Ah Carrie! How cute is that purse tag?!!! You know that anytime you make a purse tag you may as well just go on and wrap it up for me! I just love the tags I got from you a few days ago. They are so awesome! But I have a problem :O I wanted them to put in with some of my special orders - to give to customers - but how can I?! They are too pretty to part with - for now they are hanging on my MMP board (where I've collected pretties from all my MMP friends) Love them!! Great work Carrie - have a great week! XOXO - Dianne
