Show and Tell Monday!

I can't believe another week has come and gone. October is just around the corner. Where has the time gone. I have had a busy week and interesting weekend. I am so thankful to be able to write this blog because Sunday morning my hard drive crashed. . . completely corrupted! However, all is not lost. Thanks to my dear husband, I am actually blogging on my computer tonight. He went and got me a new hard drive and installed it today. After hours rebuilding my computer here I am, starting from scratch. Now the fun part will be retrieving "my life" from the old drive. Lesson learned . . .don't put off backing up your computer.

That said, I have a few things to share with you this week. To start I have some tags for a custom order I am working on. These are for Pink October and Breast Cancer awareness. I am still tinkering with the small tag a bit but I really like the way they turned out. My Grandmother survived breast cancer twice in her life, and my SIL has also recently completed chemo. My Mother has just hit the 5 year mark of being cancer free. Nothing is harder than watching someone you love battle this awful disease, you feel so helpless. I'm sure we all have someone we know. .be it a friend, loved one or acquaintance that has been affected by cancer. It really is so vital that we get our check-ups, do our self exams and take care of our bodies, not just for ourselves, but for our families as well. I dream one day the word cancer will be a distant memory. .

Moving on to a bit of fun and a sunnier topic. For Pink Friday (Office Chic) this week I have many things going on. I will however only share a sneak peek at a few goodies. Last week I showed you some painted staplers, well here a a few that are all gussied up. I hope you like them. They really do brighten up your work space.

Well, that is it for my show and tell. Have a lovely week and thanks for stopping by.

Show and Tell Monday!

This week was a busy one, yet I managed to find some time to get creative! I was able to work on many projects. I was on a role and it felt great to finally get things done that have been sitting around. So without further adieu. . . . .First up is the rocking chair I showed you last week. It was a murky green. Now it is a cheery pink and white with rose decals. I just need to add a coat of sealer and some finishing touches and it is ready for my little girl! I will show the final product next week.

Next up is the necklace tree I also showed last week. I decided I liked the gold so I put a fresh coat on it and added a little fou fou. I am happy to say it sold on Friday! I also have a few tags for Halloween. Just a bit of fun!

Finally, we have a journal followed by some staplers I painted. Now the fun part is embellishing them for an upcoming Pink Friday.

That's it for this week. Welcome back to all the lovely ladies of Make Mine Pink. I look forward to hearing all about the fun you had at the retreat! I can't wait to join you next year! Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful week!

It's Show and Tell Monday!

Wow! I can't believe it's Monday already. . . time flies when you are having fun! For this week my show and tell is a mixed bag of a few family photos and some wonderful deals I found. So I guess I will just jump in. First up is a child's rocking chair I found for $2 at a thrift store. I am planning on refinishing it and then I have these great pink rose decals to put on it. It is for my little girl of course. She loves to rock her babies in it and read to them. She is the caretaker already. Next up a cute shelf with a drawer. It was such a deal. I am going to repaint it, not sure what color though. I do like the clean look of the white however. I also found this necklace tree, I couldn't pass up. I use them to hang my tags on. I like the gold, but may end up repainting it too and selling it.

Finally, we took our children to the L.A. County Fair this weekend. The kids had fun looking at the animals and eating way too much junk food. . . no more funnel cakes. . . ugh! My DH is absent from the pictures, he wanted to play photographer. A bit pricier this year but a good time none the less.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week and a safe journey to all my Pink Sisters who will be hitting the road and taking flight! Have a blast ladies . . wish I was joining you!
