Happy Pink Saturday, Cowgirls!

Cowgirls?! What ARE you talking about, Suzie Button?! Well, today I'm giving you a chance to become a TEXAS COWGIRL!! Yes, YOU!
I wanted to share with you about the little Texas secret of craftiness and just plain good 'ol Texas girlfriend FUN!
It's called Texas Paper Cowgirl Retreat and they're having a Fall session and would love to have you too be a Texas Cowgirl too!
I've been to two already myself, and you DON'T have to originally be from Texas, heck, I grew up on the East Coast, don't worry, there's lots of transplants in Texas!
Here's a picture of my gal friends, LaVerne and Nancy, and me, Suzie Button, in our Texas Crowns that we made each other! (Nancy is a Pink Saturday gal too! Now SHE'S an original Texan and so is LaVerne!)

This Fall Cowgirl will be just as fun and just as CREATIVE! Here's a few pictures of what you'll be creating with the awesome instructors to guide you..
Une Couronne en fil metallique, where rustic becomes elegant!
You will transform ordinary chicken wire into a beautifully adorned crown!!
YES, you too will be crowned the Texas queen!
Then you can make your own Altered Fabric Bracelet!

Combine the love of needle and thread, stamps and ink, fabric and trinkets as Chantal teaches you to make a Denim and Lace bracelet/cuff.

Oh, there's more, my Cowgirl Pink Saturday Friends! Oh, LOOK AT THIS PINK!!!

You will start with an 8 x 10 gallery wrapped canvas and layer on color with painting techniques. You will then learn to layer on paper images and patterns to give our whimsical piece lots of depth. Sandra will teach you to paint the cupcake and its adorable stand, then when you have it just right, you will learn the art of beeswax...
Oh, it will be just wonderful, um, Fantastic, no... GRAND, Yes, that's the word I was searching for...


  1. too cool, Suzie! I'm just dropping by to say Happy Pink day...I don't have a post up, so just visiting this week.


    ps...that is really neat that Madison, and my neice and my mom share the same birthday!

  2. Suzie, this looks and sounds like so much fun. I think we would all love to be a Texas cowgirl. I mean I did have my very own Annie Oakley outfit when I was a little girl.

    Happy Pink Saturday.

  6. Hi Suzie - I'll second everything you said about Paper Cowgirl! Love the projects and especially loved making new friends the first time and seeing old friends like you the second year! The fall retreat sounds soo good.
    Also - I'm loving all your digital art you're doing. Looks great!
