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!

I've been busy working on something new for my shop!
I hope to have it completed within the next couple of days so that I can roll it out in my shop for the first of November.
I'm very excited to see how the finished product will turn out!
Stay tuned....

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.
