Blog Give away: Celebrate the Shop Hop with me

In honor of Mothers Day fast approaching and the much awaited Make Mine Pink Mothers Day Shop Hop I am having a give away. Its super easy too! Just leave a comment between today and May 1st (saturday) on this post or any other post after this one to be included in the drawing... I couldnt decide on a prize so I am making it a choose your own! The winner can go to my website and choose any one pair of earrings you like. Everyone has different tastes and likes different colors, so this seems like the fun thing to do.

The Shop Hop begins today and goes through May 1st also. Click on the link to register and get all of the details. But basically you will be visiting all of the participating shops and looking for a hidden shopping bag that says "You found it". You click on that bag to get credit for the find. The more bags you find the more chances of winning. There is no purchase neccessary either! But we dont mind if you take a look around at the shops and have a look at all of the great merchandise that would be perfect for you Mothers Day shopping.

I have also been busy working on a few things for gifts. I have been making a few of these make up bag/wallet/whatever you want bags. lol I also made up another piece of Alice in Wonderland inspired jewelry. This is a statement necklace and was alot of fun to put together. Well, I guess thats it for today. Dont forget to leave a post and here is the link for the shop hop.

Inspired by Blue

I love color. Every color! Of course my favorite will always be pink. But I have been having alot of fun with blue as of late. What other color has so many hues. There are so many shades of blue from the palest baby blue to the deepest indigo. And they are all so pretty. Its almost like a neutral because blue goes with so many other colors too. Its getting warm here is Arizona so blue represents cool water to me. So this must be why its on my mind. This is a short post with some new creations in blue! Thanks for visiting. I hope the bluebird of happiness visits you this week.... gail

Sarah and her pretty yard.

I believe it was John Lennon who said "Life is what happens while your busy making other plans." Truer words have never been spoken for me and the last couple weeks. But I think I have myself aligned with the stars again:)

I had a petsitting job this weekend. Sarah is a very sweet dog. (who does not like having her picture taken!) She has two cats, but they would have no part of having their picture taken. She lives in a historic home neighborhood and in AZ that means beautiful green lawns, really big trees and lots of flowers. I enjoyed sitting out on the porch this weekend just listening to all of the birds. I only live 10 minutes away, but I dont have the same birds! lol Butterflies and hummingbirds too. It was just what I needed and Sarah was the perfect company.
I have been making alot of new creations for my website and Tillies Attic. I always love being able to add new products. Also, thank you all so much for the prayers and well wishes for my daughter April. She ended up being in the hospital for 9 days and having her galbladder out. With her problems with seizures and anasthesia it was an issue, but all is well now. I had little Mikey the whole time. He is so good, BUT he is four, I am not:) My internet was down a week during this too, so I have been away far too long. I hope we all have a great week. (()) gail
