This is a Pink Saturday jumble of jabber this week!! Here we go......
No. 1 ...with less than a week before my first sale of 2013, I'm in Panic Mode!!!
As usual (for me), I'm behind in getting my items "dreamed up" and then created. I try to make up most of my patterns. That's not an easy thing to do in the first place and in the second place....it is time consuming. THEN there is the huge amount of time is takes to make what I've designed.
AND THEN, there's the distractions brought on by little Miss Twiggy who seems to want to be in the middle of EVERYTHING ....no matter what! :)
So, for the next few days, my nose is at the grindstone, trying my best to be ready to sell Easter and Spring items next weekend!!
No. 2.....Grace's gorgeous Valentine had problems getting to my house, but it finally arrived....and I was sooo happy when it did! As you can see it's a beauty....and well worth the wait.
I love it, Grace....it's a real treasure!
My camera isn't working right at the moment, so I had to use my phone camera to take these pictures. Sorry about the poor quality, but I just wanted to capture all seven of my handmade Valentines! They are all wonderful and special and I had such fun being a part of this swap!
No. 3....on February 9 I participated in my first "run" of 2013!
It was called the Sweetheart Shuffle and was held in the park and trail area that surrounds our Bass Pro store.
It was a MISERABLY cold morning as hundreds of us gathered to run, run/walk or walk either the 5K or 10K distances. I went for the 5K.
Here we are at the "starting line"...shivering and ready to get moving!!
This is me (on left) and my running friends Linda and her daughter Johnna after we'd completed the run.
We are half of a group of gals who have committed to running or run/walking a half marathon this fall!
Right now...I'm no where near ready to do that, but the six of us have formed a little support group and are really looking forward to getting in shape to complete our goal! Actually, Johnna is doing a full marathon on the same day we're doing the half!!
Usually, after one of our runs, the foods include fruit, granola bars, bagels, etc. Well, we had bananas at this run, but they also gave us theses pretty PINK cuppy cakes as a little "sweetheart" treat!!
Here is THE STONE RABBIT posing with my bib number and medals from the run....AND my PINK cuppy cake.
Twiggy was very interested in that treat, too!!
She doesn't miss a thing in this house!!
I'm glad she walked away before I had to take action to make her leave my treat alone!!
It was yummy!!
No. 4. . .. I hope you plan a visit to Beverly's blog, How Sweet the Sound, because you are in for a real treat ! LOTS of bloggers are waiting to share their pinks with you on this week's PINK SATURDAY!!
