Show and Tell Monday ~~~ Pink October

I love October. Its my favorite time of year. I like Halloween almost as much as Christmas. Its the official start of the holiday season in my mind. Nearly all of my friends and family have the birthdays this month too. Libras are wonderful people:)

Right now going on over at Make Mine Pink we are having our annuel Pink October shop-hop.Its our way of supporting breast cancer awareness. You dont want to miss out on this contest. When you go to you can see a list of the participating boutiques. When you visit each website, somewhere there is a hidden pink ribbon that says "you found it". Click on that ribbon and it will register you to be in drawings for great prizes. The more you find the better the prizes. So check it out, and help support a great cause.

I had a really quiet weekend, (yay). I stayed home and caught up on some paper work and computer work. I was in an earring sort of mood, I made several pairs. My favorite are these cute pumpkins. These were just normal beads, but they look just like pumpkins to me. How fun. Then I made this bracelet. I called it Tide Pool. Thats what it reminds me of. I would love a visit to the beach about now. If you check the post below I posted some pictures of the lake thats part of the community I live in. It was a gorgeous day. Until next time.............gail
