A Crafty Pink Saturday

A Crafty Pink Saturday to you! I'm glad you stopped by to celebrate Pink Saturday with me. I've been playing with all my pink craft stuff for a few weeks and quite enjoyng myself. Today I thought I would share with you some of my fun pink craft supplies. Below is just some of them. I have been experimenting with making tags and these are just some in process-not finished yet. ( See Piglet-You can't get much pinker than a pink piglet!)



I love my new little pink Fisker scissors not to mention all the pretty scrapbooking paper I've been cutting up with them. I found a bunch of the paper on sale at both Michael's and Hobby Lobby over the past week. I have been wondering about glitter lately-what is german glass glitter? I've seen mention of it but I don't know what it is or where to find it. I would love it if someone could tell me.

I also wanted to share with you a cute little bird that my sister made me for christmas last year. I love the little pink wings and pretty pink button eyes it has(and I love the green pink combo of colors-my favorite combo!)


Just recently I visited Lecompton Kansas Hisorical Museum- a very fun and worth your time trip. They had amazing stuff and a very nice and helpful tour guide. Below is some beautiful pink depression glass-sorry the pic didn't come out a little better. Lecompton Kansas was the Territoral Capital before Kansas became a state.


This was also at the Museum- A beautiful old spinning wheel.


Since Maddy Joy, my editor-in- chief, got her picture posted last Saturday the rest of my blogging Staff has been insisting they have their pics posted too. Below is my friend Jane's little papillion Napoleon who I am fostering right now for her. His title is official lap warmer when I'm on the computer. He likes to curl up on an afaghan I crocheted a while back when he isn't on my lap. Next week I will share another member of my staff.



And for some strange reason I feel compelled(almost like I'm under a spell or something) to share one more pic-even though the only pink in it is this kind lady's cheeks.








She is one of the Halloween tags I've been working on. Well Happiest of Pink Saturdays to you all! Thanks for stopping by to make mine a better one! Don't forget to check out all the other nice ladies listed on Beverly's blog- http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/

I love your creative tags! And the bird your sister made for you. Handmade is always the best, I've always thought. Even though my children groaned somewhat when I'd give a handmade gift to them. Hopefully as they've become adults, the understand the love that went into those gifts. (I'm adding you to my blogroll...)

It was fun seeing your craft supplies! Mine is a whole room, the contents of which may topple over onto unsuspecting husbands at any time! Hee hee!

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Susan. You have a great blogging staff.

I love your tags and all of your pink crafting supplies.

dana said...

I love your pink supplies--specially that little Piglet! Your official lapwarmer looks like a real cutie!

I also love your "witch" tags! Do you make photo copies of old photos when you're working with them---I've never done that and it looks interesting.

Oh, every time I look at that Maddy Jo and the Blog book photo I laugh all over again! SO funny!

Cori G. said...

Hi Susan,
You have a great selection of pink papers and your tags are darling. Have a pink weekend.

Anne Fannie said...

Cute pink tags and the Halloween tag is cute too!

Jeanne said...

Susan, thank you for your comments as always. I laughed when you were confused about the torture chamber. Because of the knee replacement I had last week, the hospital sent me home with a physical therapy machine that is so painful to use, that is what it is called. It makes me moan like a sissy girl and I am on it as I write this comment. I have to use it four hours a day at least, sigh.

I love all of your crafty items and miss doing them. I used to make so many things. I enjoy putting my energy into decorating these days.

Hugs, Janne

German glass glitter is glitter literally made from German glass. It's very sharp and comes in many grades from fine to course. Best way to use it is to paint your base item the same color as the glitter and literally sprinkle it into the glue and let dry. I use it on cards and scrapbook pages and 3D items. Neat stuff. Can be expensive for the real thing though. Black glass glitter is fab on Halloween projects. Love your tags.

Patricia said...

Your ~Pinks~ are wonderful ! I also just love your Halloween tags. I made a bunch too. Hope you had a lovely holiday weekend.
