Purple Box Sampler

I am so glad that I was able to get my act together and send in some samples for the Holiday Sampler of the Purple Box Sampler!
This is the sister site to the every popular The Sampler.
The Purple Box Sampler focuses on businesses that are outside of the US.

I've been wanting to contribute for some time now, but with business and life being as hectic as it can be, I've only now carved out some time.
I don't unfortunately have a picture of the samples that I sent in as I was rushed (as always) and it completely slipped my mind.  You'll have to purchase a box to see what fabulous item I created for the box.

Please drop by and purchase a box! I'm sure that you won't be disappointed.

My New Favorite Season

When I was younger, Summer was my favorite time of year, and I'm sure that it had everything to do with the fact that school was over and I'd get to spend all my time hanging out with my friends, but as the years go by and the older I get, I'm starting to appreciate the wonders of Fall!
I really enjoy seeing the leaves change color and I'm starting to believe that this is really a time for change and new beginnings. 

I like wearing jeans and turtleneck sweaters, light jackets and closed toe shoes.  The air is fresh and crisp and you know that there are better things to come!

We visited a pumpkin patch with the girls and it was such a perfect and wonderful day!
The sun was shining and it was not too cold to be outdoors, it was busy but not too busy that you had to wait to go on the rides or use the activities.

We had a terrific day out!
Here's hoping for many more to come

Cheers and Happy Shopping!

Spotlight Monday - Artwork

It seems like the one thing that my house is missing is some artwork.
Etsy has an amazing collection of Artists.
My husband and I  have very different taste in artwork.  He likes country themed images were-as I am more of a modernist.  Because of our differences, we have not purchased any artwork for our home, but I think that these are winners that I'm sure we would both be able to agree with!

80 Days 14 Hours

Until Christmas!
Can you believe it? I don't know where the year has gone.
Here at Pinky Creations, We are in full on Christmas making mode, (and by we I mean my husband and I, he's been know to step up to the plate if I've needed some cutting done).  I've been thinking about Christmas since September, but have been very slow moving on getting projects done and listed in my shop.

I introduced this lovely mitten garland late last year and while it did very well, I felt that I could have done even better with sales, had I listed it earlier in my shop!
Each one is unique and made by hand.
This is the perfect decorating accessory for anywhere in your home, not just your mantle.  I have one hanging over my windows!

Available in red and pink!
Be sure to make your purchase early as this will be a limited item at the moment.

Taking Care

I better be careful otherwise September will roll on past me and I'll be asking myself "where did September go?"
I've been a bit busy getting my daughter settled into her nursery school, doing some work on the Etsygreetings blog as well as creating some new and exciting products for the holidays.

I would love to be able to post what I've been working on, but I've just realized that I've lost my camera! I did lose it on vacation, however I'm really not sure where!  This is what happens when your trying to take care of things for 4 people.
I'm really bummed about it and now have to go out and purchase another camera.  This will be my third one in 2 years.
Which reminds me I have to add that to my list, call resort, get a new camera my list is growing!!!

Another Day

Well today looks gray and dark and there is a mist coming down, which means that the rain is sure to come.  We are stuck inside and that is not the place we want to be when you are on vacation and staying in a hotel room!  This is a picture I took yesterday when the weather was warm and the sun was shining!  I hope that we have a lot more of these sunny days ahead.

Thursday, August 28, 2008


We are out and about stopping to smell the roses, err flowers.
The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting colder which is a sure sign that summer is almost over!
Me and my girls had a great time taking a walk and looking at the last signs of summer. 
Our vacation is winding down and it's time to think about what's, fall, Halloween...

A Budding Artist?

Today we were out enjoying some really warm weather!  The resort that we're staying at had some activities for the kiddies and here is my precious daughter coloring her own paper frame. She had a great time with the paints and I'm very proud to say that there was minimal paint on the chair.
You can also see her completed frame!
Did I forget to mention that she likes to paint.

Spotlight Monday - Baby Items

Huge Vinyl Alphabet by Tasty Suite
A little bird and flowers by Emilie Friday
Dress-up Party by Sarajanestudios

I love being apart of the Etsy Network, and there are so many wonderfully talented artisans on Etsy that I have decided to devote every Monday Spotlighting some talent!  These will come from my vast list of favorites, and believe me I have a lot of favorites!

I have baby on the brain right now, well let's face it I've always got baby on the brain,  but I've just recently had another baby girl so it's really front and centre and if you've got kids, and you're like me, then you know that there is so much kids stuff out there, the choices are endless.  This is where Etsy comes in, because I love that I can get something handmade and that is not always mass produced.
With a new baby comes decorating the baby's room and above are some items that I hope will make there way into my new daughter's room. 

Check out these shops for more items

End of Summer?

Well it's not quite the end of summer but the kiddies will be going back to school soon and it feels like this is the last hurrah!

My family and I decided to get away for a while and enjoy the last days August before our daughter has to go to school.  She's only going half days 3 days a week but it feels like I'm shipping her off forever.

This is a picture I captured of her mid twirling, she likes to do that a lot!  I'm looking forward to spending the next 9 days with her, her sister and my wonderful husband.

I'm Back

We'll I'm back, and I must say it feels pretty good!
A lot has happened in my life since my last post:

  • We've been trying to decorate or re-decorate, depends on who you talk to, the house
  • I've been restocking my etsy store, a big thanks to my loyal customers
  • Updating my website so that it's bigger and better has proven to be quite time consuming, but I hope to have this completed within the near future
  • We've had a baby!!!  We had a precious little girl back in May and I'm tired.
Well like I said I'm back and I want to start August off with a great promotion.
Head on over to my shop and look at some of the fabulous new items I have, and for every purchase that you make, you will receive 1 free gift.  This offer is good for the whole month of August.
