Pink Saturday

I'm linking up with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday!

I'm so excited because I just purchased a new toy.  It's the Sizzix Movers and Shapers Big Shot!

Isn't it adorable?  And look at all the PINK it has on it!  Eeeek!

Now I'll be able to make this:

And this:

And definitely one of these!

I ordered it from and I can't until it arrives.  I've got so many grand plans. It will really come in handy for making Christmas cards!  I know, I said the "C" word...but now is the time to start planning all those projects.  I'm a Christmas nut, so I think about it all year long!

Thanks for joining me and have a wonderfully pink weekend!

Borrowing ideas

I've been home sick in bed for a few days (again!) and I've had a little more time than usual to look at new (to me) blogs.

I found this blog that is written by a cute young lady who is only 23 but has some great ideas!  The one I'm loving the most is her monogram tray.  It has given me an idea for a few Christmas gifts.  Since I don't sew, I like it even more!

I also love her ring bearer pillows.  They would be beautiful in almost any room of your home if you don't need for them for a wedding.

Another lovely project can be found on Jeni's blog.  I would love to have these easy art blocks hanging on my wall.  They're made with scrapbook paper!

What great new-to-you blogs have you run across lately?

I have a serious infatuation with paisley.  Every time I see a pretty pattern, I start thinking about how to incorporate it into my decorating.  So far I don't have much, but since it makes me so happy, I need to work on that!

Here are some images from

Here are some lovely patterns.

Are you a fan of paisley?

Lazy Pink Saturday

I have been under the weather for the past few days so I haven't prepared anything substantial for Pink Saturday.  All I've got are some pretty pink images from Pinterest.  Enjoy!
