Pink Saturday With A NEW Computer :)

Hello All...
Goodness, it has been a while since I posted! You would not believe the wildy busy days we have had and just when I thought all had calmed down, something else would come around the corner. I thrive on busy, but when it gets to the point that you find your shoulders up around your ears with stress and a throbbing headache to get everything done before the end of the day, well, that is just way to much "busy."

And to compound things, I have had lots and lots of computer issues, but no more. I have a new Dell with dual cores and I can not begin to tell you how heavenly it is that when I sit down to do something, EVERYTHING WORKS! I am not used to that!!! The printer works on command, the computer does not freeze, the pages do not roll, Photoshop behaves! Oh, I feel like a Queen in command of her realm! Thank you Debie our leader at Shabby Cottage Shops, for guiding me to what I needed and thank you to my hubby who tries to always see that my needs and my wants are pretty much covered! How did I get so lucky!

This being Pink Saturday, you better get yourself a cup of tea or coffee, or like me, a Dr. Pepper and pop on over to Beverly's where you find great gals sharing their beautiful pinks today and have a little downtime enjoying all the pinks.

This is about half of an order of cupcakes and cookies that I, Whew! finished and shippped. All their sweet pinkness was pretty on the table. I always feel so relieved when a project is finished and on its way! :)

A pretty and practical canvas bag with handpainted roses on each side....see more of this one and others at THE RUFFLED ROSE

Paris inspired cream stockings with handmade muslin roses and a touch of bling....

I am off to go visiting. It will be fun to see what you all been up to since I last posted!
Happy Pink Saturday and have a great weekend and Happy Thanksgiving! I know I can hardly wait for our dinner and then snacking on the left overs with turkey and cranberry sandwiches! Yummmmmy!
