Good PINK Saturday Morning
Dear Blogging Friends!

Thank you so much to those who entered my
Clay ROSE Giveaway.
Your kind comments and sweet words just
touch my heart.  When you do something you LOVE
it is always so much fun to share them with others!

I do have a winner...


If I remember correctly Deby lives in my home state of
Washington...actually not to far from where my
parents reside. I am SOOOOO Thrilled for
you Deby....please contact me
with your addy via my email.

Now on to Pinkness.

I am going to show you my finished
PINK Lacy HEART Pocket that I have
worked on this week.

Below is my sweet HEART Pocket with the
Heart on a stick and Tag that comes with it.

Oh when those creative juices flow its all I can
do to NOT go in my room for hours and get
lost it in all.  I Think I made 4 or 5 of these in the
past few days..they will be in my etsy shop.
Of course, my studio suffers so.  If you
saw it right now, you'd say
what happened? lol
But alas, that is how I work...but soon
that room will need a good cleaning and
a fresh new start for MOI.

Have a Wonderful PINK Day everyone!

Hearts, HEARTS and More HEARTS!

Hi Dear Friends!

Thanks again for your continued prayers!
I am encouraged and Blessed.

YEP, it's that time of year isn't it?
I have had somewhat of a creative lul.
I think after Christmas and all of the business
and creative juices that flow, I just plain run outta steam
after the first of the year.
I felt like I was in a slump.
Trying to figure out just what do I want to do.
I used to LOVE to paint roses...
well I guess I still do...
I wasn't doing this regularly.
Need to get back to my passion.
Roses and painting roses.

Hearts...well I have to say they place
2nd next to my roses.
I thought I'd show you some past Canvas's that
I have painted my Roses into a Heart Wreath on.
The one above is my absolute FAV.
These are some of my favorite things to
paint. Hmmm...think I must do one
for this year...note to self.
This one above is actually being offered up
in my Bonanzle store...for those who might be interested.

Alas I ramble....I did also create some
unique Heart Pockets.  Oh, a couple of
years ago I came up with a fun idea  for
a swap.

Above its all done up...
below was just before I embellished it.
See the lacy heart below? with the painted rose?
That went to my dear Friend Connie of
Living Beautifully. With all the goodies pictured.

But then I forgot about them until this year...
I got inspired again because of the
AMOUR Valentines Swap I joined.
So yesterday those juices
started to flow...Oh and look what I did.
I was so tickled with how this turned out.
Can you guess what my pocket is?
Yep, Its actually a lace paper doily!
It's not quite finished.  Just had to show you
what I have gotten my creative
juices doing..SQUEAL!!!  I plan to do something to
put into this and then hopefully sell
them in my etsy shop.

Oh thanks so much for indulging my HEART
obsession.  I really DO love them!

Have a great day everyone!

Sharing My Sweet Gifts ~ Prayer Request

Hi Friends!

Oh I was the very happy winner of a giveaway. 
really makes this so special, Vickie is not
only a fellow blogger but she's in a very wonderful
ebay group of girls whom I love dearly.
AND...I have had the priviledge of meeting
Vickie and her sweet hubby Larry this past July.
My hubby and I were in Austin, Texas checking
out a potential business opportunity.  They were
such gracious hosts and we spent a whole afternoon
and into the evening sight seeing, visiting and I
got to see her charming home!
So, without further's what I received!

Such a pretty Tea Cup for MOI who adores
Tea Cups...and such lovely napkins too!

She wrote the sweetest note in the Kitty Card.

In the past, I have been sharing what my hubby and I have
been going through.  He is still without a job almost 1.5 years now. 
We have had many opportunities open, but alas nothing yet. 

God is so faithful. 
We have been careful savers and that
is how we have been surviving now.  But...our
cobra on our Insurance will run out mid-February.
OH My, this make us so aware of the great benefits
we have enjoyed...and also what is out there for
those like us who are not with a company or employed.
I am more sensitive to those less fortunate.

Would you please pray for a job this year
for my hubby.  I am praying for a miracle.
God KNOWs my specific requests.
He's been by our side.
He' been my constant source of strength.
He's been my ROCK.
He is GOD.
He is in Control.
He loves me and will take care of my families needs.

Thanks so much for your continuing Love and Prayers.

PINK Saturday ~ ROSES ~ Giveaway!

WELCOME to PINK Saturday!

Thanks for stopping by today.

I LOVE to create.
I LOVE to share.

I paint roses. Decorate with roses.
Embellish treasures with my handmade clay roses.


Some lucky person will win the pictured above clay roses.
Each ROSE is made by Hand by me.
Then they are baked for 10 minutes in a warm oven
and are ready to use.
All you need to do to enter is...
leave me a comment on ANY
post during this next week. 
Then,  in NEXT Saturdays
PINK post I will announce my winner.
The more comments you leave...
the more you have a better chance to win.
It's that easy.

My LOVE afair with clay began almost 20 years ago.
Before I even painted roses I craft
clay rose jewelry.
Put it aside when my daughter was born.
Then my interest began again a few years ago
when a very talented lady on ebay began
using her gorgeous roses in her mosaics!

I now make them for others to use in their crafts.  And
I embellish and have created many unique signature
items of my own.

I will leave you with some more PINK roses I am
offering in my etsy shop for those who are interested!
