Pink Saturday & Valentines Day

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Valentines Day to all....
I had such good intentions of making all my Valentines this year .... something handmade and from the heart says L-O-V-E most of all. Well, I am feeling so disappointed in myself because that just did not get done!
I purchased a Cricut when they were on sale, last weekend, and I got bogged down in learning how to use it. It is not hard, but there are several little things to learn and the time flew by with me not getting one Valentine done. Sigh! I hope all my sweeties will understand and I promise that I will make it up at Easter....I am getting started NOW!

I did manage to get two new things done and on the The Ruffled Rose

And a pillow with the sweetest little girl by Ellen Clapsaddle....

Atleast this week was not a total loss and we only had to shovel twice, too! lol!

I hope you all have a happy and romantic Valentines Day!
Be sure and visit Beverly's for this weeks list of sweet pink blogs all celebrating pink and Valentines Day!

Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie...
Such a beautiful share on this day.
I love your little corner stand, and those roses you painted, oh my gosh are they ever gorgeous. Your talents just soar sweet friend.

And that pillow is so elegant. It just says ROMANCE to me. I love the little girls face. How precious. It could go into so many corners of any ones home. I love it.

If you aren't painting, you are sewing. Such talents. Thank you for sharing with me this evening. I have so enjoyed my visit.

Have a beautiful Pink Saturday and Happy Valentine's Day sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Sares said...

So pretty! It's always a challenge to learn all the ins and outs to a new gadget. I wish you luck! Happy Pink and have a terrific Valentine's Day!

Lynn said...

I so love the pillow and shelf. Blogs, the internet and such tend to make us feel we "must" do and be all things. I look at your creations and think how gifted you are, how beautiful your creativity is. Me, I am still getting ready to paint a breakfast nook to turn it into a studio for my art! I have good intentions, then my hubby and I go on "day dates", lol, which means I am newly retired and loving it. The rest will all fall into place, as will all the things you want to do. Happy Pink Saturday. I really love the pillow!

Hi Jil,
Oh how I love your pretty, romantic creations. I wish that I could paint roses like you do. I would paint them on everything!

Happy Pink Saturday and Valentine's Day!!!

Hey Jil just stopping by to let you know what sponge candy is. It is pretty exclusive to Western New York - it has a sponge center that melts in your mouth and is dipped in chocolate. I am not sure how they make the sponge part. Let me tell you though, it is the best candy!
