It's Monday! Show and Tell Time!

Happy Monday everyone. It is time to share what's new this week. Well, I have to say, I have had one of the busiest weeks ever. Between Pink Fridays, Christmas in July, custom orders, the kids and hubby being home on vacation and yes I will say it, organizing like a mad woman, I have had many late nights. Believe me, I am not complaining! If anything, I couldn't be happier.

Ok, on to show and tell. This week I have a few things to share. First are two sets of tags with Pei Li's cupcakes and cookies. I love the cupcakes, they are so detailed and fun to work with. Can you see the little roses on top of the cupcakes? You should see them in person. One set will be for Pink Friday, and the other I sent to Pei Li. I also have a few vintage button Christmas ornaments in the beginning stages. I have something else in the planning stages which I will give a sneak peak of, but won't spill the beans just yet! Thanks for visiting and have a wondeful week ahead!

A Sneak Peak!

Happy Monday! Today I have a little preview of things to come. I was inspired by my lovely pink sisters to get creative for Pink Friday this week. The theme is "The Beach Cottage." So far I have made a large beach themed tag, but as you can see from my array of papers, I have many things to come. Notebooks, travel tags, and so much more! Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful summer day!

Show and Tell Monday

Happy Monday! Yes, it's that time again. We have been busy bees this past week, and going tag crazy I might add. The reason for all the tags. . . well, some will be for sale, and some are for another reason. But I will spare the details for now.

The first three sets are created using miniatures from Miniature Patisserie Artisian Pei Li. It is so much fun working with her amazing creations. What a joy! First is Tangerine Dream (it was a challenge making the little table), then A Rose in Bloom, and finally, Just Peachy. The remaining sets are called Queen of Bling, Elegant Handbags, and the last is not quite done yet. Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful week ahead!

Show and Tell Monday

My show and tell is a mixed bag today, something old, something new, wait a minute, this is sounding like a wedding. To start off we have a little thing I call a stationery purse, it opens and has a matching notebook and pen. It is polka dot and has a rose pattern on the sides and inside as well. Next is a little pink box/purse I found the other day for only $3 and love! I want to do something to it, just not sure what to do yet, but this one is mine!. Moving on . . . I am making a little space for me, I covered this organizer in paper and I still need to add some embellishments. I just needed a place where I could find paper and a pen. I know this doesn't sound like much but with 2 kids who love to write on anything and everything, this is important to me.

Finally, I saved the best for last. I received a box of treasures last week from Lilli of Lilli Blue's Vintage Rescue. If you have not visited her Little Pink Boutique yet you must. She generously gave me this wonderful assortment of vintage laces, buttons, ribbons, paper goodies. . .you name it, it is in there. I am so fortunate!. What more could a girl ask for.

Well, this is it, a variety of trinkets for your viewing pleasure! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful Monday!

A Day at the Beach!

I just had to share a few pictures of my family at Laguna Beach. It was a perfect day, so beauutiful and warm. As you can tell we weren't dressed for the beach and hadn't planned to actually go down by the water, but the kiddies wanted to so badly we gave in. Seeing them enjoy playing was like seeing myself there as a child. They thoroughly enjoyed it and want to go back soon. I may have to break down and buy a bathing suit, or not (he he). I look forward to many returns this summer. It was a very lovely birthday, and the cheesecake we ate afterwards was so yummy I am still full. Thanks for visiting.
