HAPPY PINK SATURDAY!!

Is it Saturday already?!! I just dont know where the week goes lately. Wasnt it just Halloween a WEEK AGO?? Wow I need time to slow down , its going by too fast.

I guess its that time of the year to start our Holiday Shopping, I am definitely not ready for that. The crowds in the stores,,YUK!  I am going to really try to be prepared this year by starting early. Many of my friends decided this year, we are going to only give Handmade gifts to each other, this way its really from the heart. NO mass produced chauckie (Not sure about the spelling on that :) ) that will sit and collect dust, I definetly do not want any dust collectors. I love getting handmade anyway. So its a great idea.  Some make scarves, purses, homemade soup, cookies, a photo album, a framed picture of their Dog, you name it, wouldnt that be awesome to get? So Im promoting HANDMADE this year, since that is what I do, and love it.  When you just dont know what to get that special person, buy handmade, they are usually one of a kind items that you cant find in a store, you know its made with love, and someones precious time. 
I have sold my handmade pretties on ebay for many years, and usually by christmas I am so burnt out, I dont have the energy to make items for the ones I love, I hear it every year, I would love to have that pillow, or stocking  or a pair of pink jammies etc. So I've already started my list and gradually will make something special for my family too.
     So to celebrate Pink Saturday, Im going to start by showing you one of my Christmas stockings, I love the pink, I love making many items with pink, but I do sway away from pink at times so I hope you watch. But this sweetie of a stocking is for today.  I would also like to tell you about other sellers I have met on ebay, etsy, and Lollishops. There are so many talented artists that make the sweetest handmade goodies, I hope you have a chance to check them out this holiday season.  I hope you all decide to give Handmade, if not from me, from another artist that will make it, and send it to you with love, and you dont even have to fight the crowds  :)
I would also like to thank Bev for hosting Pink Saturday, I love meeting all you wonderful people.
Have a Safe Weekend
HUGS to all~~

Pink is my favorite color - no other compares, so Pink Saturday is the day when I can sit back, look at sweet pink goodies and visit some of the most lovely blogs in cyberspace.

Thank you for sharing your pinks with me today. They warmed my little pink ♥. Wishing you a wonderful and blessed weekend filled with the love of friends and family.
