Make Mine Pink

It's so amazing to me when it's time to turn off the computer on my work desk and lock up on Friday afternoon to go home for the weekend. The week passes by so very quickly, I have a hard time keeping up. There are so many things I would love to accomplish, but never seem to have enough time to get to those things.
I have been away from my home computer for the last couple of weeks and haven't been able to post for the past couple of Saturdays, so I will be sending out the Sewing package to Trish and catching up with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound and sharing a bit of Pink Saturday.I have made Pink Saturday a part of my weekend and enjoy ready so many pink posts, they always sweeten the weekend. I have met so many wonderful bloggers and look forward to seeing and sharing so many beautiful things every weekend!

This week, like last week I headed over to Mystic Paper after work. I love Jennifer's Vintage Scrapbooking Shop. She has so many wonderful things in the store, I always have something to add to my "have to create" list whenever I pay her a visit.

Last week she was so generous to let my girl scout troop meet in her new "Studio 32", so the sewing machines were set up with the ironing board and the girls made pillowcase bags to participate in the pillowcase project. In the three hours that we were there we made one dozen pillowcase bags made from the most fun printed fabrics!

Tonight, I went in to see what new things were happening there and I saw the most fun vintage inspired pin cushions, I had to share them for ink Saturday!! They are so pretty and Jennifer will be hosting a class to make these lovely beauties on July 9th! See the class schedule or give the store a call if you would like to sign up!

There are so many more cute projects displayed at Mystic Paper. If you happen to be in or near Mesa, you must plan a visit, especially if it's the 2nd Friday night of the month...when the entire street is open late and everyone is out for the night. It's a fun event and there is always a live ATC swap to participate in.... June's theme is......Sewing! So if you're in the mood to whip stitch some cards...come and join us!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Craft something beautiful!
