Pink

Pink satin ribbon wrapped around an empty cardboard ribbon spool.


Diminutive posies with pearl centers in creamy shades of pink, each flanked by pale pink bows. A sweet bracelet for a little girly girl.


Pink, pink,and more pink.


A headband for a special occasion or headpiece for a flower girl.


Miss Henrietta Hedgehog has volunteered to become our model du jour.


More pink overload. Are you sick to your stomach yet?


A feminine splash of sweetness to start your day. I hope all that pink wasn't too much for you. Sometimes it is for me. But not today. I need a blast of sweet-pink- frosting-cutesy every now and then.

You can find directions for making the posie in this tutorial. It is the flower center from my Heart to Heart Valentine Tufted Pin.

Yesterday's comments made me smile. After posting a picture of my neat and tidy living room, I had a feeling that I may be asked about my creative space. Some of you may recall that I overhauled my space last year because the inner slob in me let it fall into total disarray. I am happy to say that I have been able to keep it relatively tidy since then. Of course, while a project is in motion, things are all over the place. In my opinion, creativity and making-a-big-mess go hand in hand. After the completion of each project, I do make a conscious effort to return items to their designated area. I slip up every now and then, but I try to keep a handle on things while the messes are still manageable.

If you'd care to torture yourself, you can read through my old posts here, here, here, and here Protect your retinas, people. You are sure to get an eyeful. Looking back at those pictures make me cringe. I hope that I never find myself in the middle of that kind of chaos again.

Have a fabulous day!

Aloha!
