It's Show and Tell Monday!

Hello and welcome! It is Show & Tell at Mate Mine Pink and we are happy to show you what we have been working on. While it has been a busy week, I managed to take some time off and have some fun with my family. We had a lovely picnic at the park, and if you haven't heard, we added a new member to our family. His name is Leo and he is such a sweetie. He is 6 weeks old and has become very attached to me already. Nothing puts a smile on your face like a kitten. We are thrilled to have found him. I also spent some time painting items for my workspace. I ordered some decals to finish it up and I just need to get some curtains or fabric to make some. Hopefully I will have some before and after photos next week. Now for my show and tell.

Well, I finally got the Words to Dream By Inspirational Quotes ready.. Take a look if you get a chance. I have several sets up and more are on the way!

I also have something new to share, though only one at this time. We are making these little embellished accessories to be placed in gift bags/baskets, etc. The possibilities are endless. They will have a stick attached so you can place them where ever you like. We have dress forms, hats, dresses, shoes and handbags. They are all drawn and embellished by hand. I am really excited about these. They are such fun. Tell me what you think! Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful week!

Hi Carrie,
Your Leo is just too cute for words. Your little dress form is should do very well and your Words To Dream By are just as lovely as I imagined them when you first talked about them. I hope you do really well with them. I especially love "Keep your face in the sunshine..." as it is one of my favority sayings. As always, your work is exquisite!

Well Carrie there is just entirely too much cuteness in your post! Leo is just precious. Kittens are so darn funny. I love it when they meow and hardly any noise comes out. All your new artwork is fabulous. Wishing you lots of sales this week.

Thank you for the compliment...I just have to get all my own 'goodies' dug out of their boxes so I can get down to the knitty gritty and turn a big ole bunch of them out.....just in time for the Holidays! ;0) I can't wait to see all the little dresses and shoes and hats done up Carrie style! I know these and your "Words to Dream By" will take off like a rocket....Leo looks ready to bat them down as they launch! lol It's such fun to have a new kittie...Leo has the sweetest lil face.
