Pink Saturday Pretties

~
Happy Bright Pink Saturday Everyone!!


The sun has been shining all week,

but today is a different story!


You can stay inside

create, cook, clean, organize

and create some more

and not miss any of the wonderful weather outside
because...it's raining
~~
Take a peak at Beverly from 'How Sweet the Sound' today,
I know you will find some Pinks
that will put a big smile on your face
regardless of the weather



The Apple Blossoms are all in full bloom
and when you walk by...the fragrance just fills you up

~~~~~
was hosting a fun Spring swap called
By the Dozen Egg Exchange
We were supposed to decorate an egg carton
and fill it with Spring goodies
....sounded like a ton of fun

My swap partner Carol from Sugar Hill Studio
decided to send me a basket
of Spring goodies to die for



Chock full of Spring goodness
...not to mention tons of candy and chocolate


Ribbons,

stamps,

chocolate,

each box was filled with various candies,
glitter and did I mention chocolate


I decorated my egg carton with Spring colors

and it really was so much fun


I placed the colored eggs inside
and filled them with goodies
.....of course I forgot to take pix
and remembered after I shipped it off.


This was a really great swap and I thank you Carol for being my swap partner and making my sweet tooth very very happy. I would also like to thank Christine for coming up with this creative idea!! Take a visit to Christine's and see all of the other creative Egg Exchange ideas


~~

Back at the end of February Amy from Insire Co. had the idea to have a stitchalong for her birthday. Beginning March 1, you were to make an inch square stitchy everyday for a pre-determined number of days.


Oh the possibilities



This is what it looks like today....I just have to think of a clever way to display this now....any suggestions. Loved this...it was so much fun and you could look forward to just a little bit of creativity to spark you for other projects.


I hope you try something creative

&

out of the box today!!

Whatever you choose to do....have tons of fun!!

  5. Your stitching sampler is fabulous. It would be fun to add various fabrics as borders and make this into a cute pillow for your bed or sofa. Love seeing what you came up with for each square. Lovely piece!
    I't raining here today too!

  11. Remember, April showers bring May flowers. ;-) Lovely eggschange you and Carol did (she showed me her goodies while I was at her house last week). Thank you so much for participating. And I absolutely love your sampler. I need to give it a whirl...maybe when my house doesn't look like an episode of The Hoarders. Have a great day!
