Still in the same place Pink Saturday

I'm a bit lazy this weekend and reminiscing too of where I was on 11/13/2009 and where I am this 11/13/2010 and my heart is still in the same pink place! So i thought I'd share last year's Pink Saturday post with you this year!
What a wonderful combination, don't you agree, Pink (Saturday) and the Holiday Season! So we need to have a PINK...

We don't need a lot of fancy supplies, and the directions can be simple, such as making this momento memory box for a mother or a grandmother, wouldn't it be lovely?!

You probably have all these supplies in your scrapbook drawer right now!

I am an old-fashioned soul at heart, I never tire of the beauty of the floral hankie look, it's just so beautiful! And this would be a special gift for any vintage soul!

And I've wanted to make this for over a YEAR, and am still in love with it! You can see this really would be simple to construct!

We're NOT finished crafting on this PINK Saturday, friends, but I want to give thanks and credit for the above crafty ideas where it's due...

Oh, no there's more beauties to craft today...

I love this sweet angel doll!

This little sweet fabric frame would be wonderful with a print inside, maybe even add a touch of glitter to set it off!

I know a little girl in my life that would LOVE this soft PINK crown!

And wouldn't these be wonderful on Christmas morning?!

Again, thanks for your beautiful inspiration...

We can't end our craft day without a little bit of sweets, could we?!

And these BEAUTIES fit right into the plan of having FUN!

And a bucket full of sweet cookies! Well, you shouldn't have.

I really should have this angel food cake, I am on a diet, after all!


And thank you to our lovely PINK host Beverly at How Sweet the Sound

and Happy Pink Saturday!

Holiday Crafting Frenzy!

Hi Friends! I am still dealing with the Reindeer I shared a week and a bit ago, but it's progressing...

Hopefully soon I'll have something pretty to show you finished in the deer catagory!
In the meantime, as the glue and glitter dries there, I've worked on my Red Lead garland swap and finished it up (can you say YIPPEE?!!) and plan to mail it off tomorrow!
I decided to use their Round archway chipboard as the background as I had a vision of doors opening on Christmasy scenes!
I was pleased with the results...

and open the windows...

I used images from my vintage Christmas cards to make all of these
I KNEW one day they'd come in handy!
Knock, Knock!

Who's there?

And my third was an ornament...

I'm now working on pure cuteness tags for Elizabeth's Creative Breathing
and a few other goodies that I'm hoping to accomplish too!
What are you making this year for the Holidays?

Is it Christmas Countdown yet?!!

I sure cannot handle to see the actual number of, not days before Christmas, but CRAFTING days left until Christmas at this point! Can you?!
There is never enough time to accomplish all our creative, crafty minds and hearts desire to create is there?
I've been seeing red, red glitter...
I had a vision of this reindeer, glitter and all, and when I have a craft as a vision, I don't fight it, I just make it.
So there are glittered reindeer and reindeer in different stages of metamorphism...

During the prepping for this project I came upon some treasured vintage wrapping paper, just a bit thinner than tissue paper and just delightful..

There's only one sheet, I'm not sure if I can get myself to use it!
Do you have the same issues?
While the reindeer dry, consider the next steps of their journey, I decided to start looking
through some of my vintage cards in preparation for CUTENESS for a holiday swap and I came across
a scrapbook I inherited from my mother-in-law from HER childhood...

My much loved mother-in-law.
It began with her birth cards in 1938 and ended in 1951.
I treasure it!
Full of birth, birthday, valentine's day, and Christmas cards.
I just adored her.
Of course that set off a few tears as my heart realized how much I still miss her,
oh, so much!
Here are a few beauties found within...

Look at the shine of the vintage glitter!

So sweet.

And another...

and to make this card extra special you only needed to open it!

3-D vintage style!
The best in my opinion!
Have a 'Terrific Tuesday' everyone!
