Happy Halloween!

We are having super weather for Trick or Treating this year! It's not to cold & there is no snow. It's great for a change. This is a pic of my three grandkids.
Hope everyone has a SAFE & HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Oh goodness!

It's been a few days since I've posted. So let's catch up.

The pink kitchen cupboards have been put on hold for a few days , until I can get enough things done for my upcoming bazaars.

Yes, it's BAZAAR time. And if you haven't guessed yet... I tend to put things off till the last minute (hehehe). That means I've been sewing and painting at every available moment. I've signed up for three (yes...three) craft bazaars in November. If I want more than 4 baby blankets & a couple of snowman ornaments to display, I need to keep busy. Amazingly though, I always have a very nice showing with lots of merchandise.

Every year I tell myself that I should start getting some things made for these bazaars starting in the summer. Hummm??? Why didn't that happen this summer? Could it be that I babysit for my three grandkids everyday or swimming or gardening or fixing my In-laws house after they had a major flood problem? Probably! Oh well, maybe next year!!!

Thought you might like to see a couple of things I've put on my Etsy shop for sale. Oh yeah...need to get that fuller too.

It's up & running!!

Yes...I did get my Etsy shop open for business again! I will be adding a couple of new items every couple of days. There isn't a lot in there just yet. But it is a start!!! Tomorrow I should have that candy dish (with the pearls) listed.

I've also managed to get a little more pink put on the cupboards.

I have a "secret Santa scavenger swap" that I'm a part of in one of my groups. They are pretty fun! And you get to meet such nice people. I've been working on my things to send. In this swap you have to find 5 different things that you make or buy. One of them is something with an angel on it. This is what I made for that. Cute, heh?

Not enough to do???

Busy! Busy! Busy!
This has been such a busy week. I haven't been posting much, but you might have noticed that I've been playing around with the gadgets on here. It's so much fun! I did put a slideshow over on the side that shows you some of the things that I have done. There is so much you can do on here. And this old lady didn't know anything about computers. Now I have to tell myself "Hey, you need to do the laundry!"

I'm almost ready to get my Etsy shop back open with some listings.I'm hoping to have that done by Monday.
This candy dish is something I painted this week. I think I'll add some pearls to it yet.

I just noticed that I have only three more weeks until my first bazaar. Good Lord I better get BUSIER !!!

And those kitchen cupboards are calling me "Paint me, paint me please."

OK---(shouting loudly)"SELF... Get off the computer & get to work!!"

before redo!

This is what my hubby saw when I first started doing my cupboards.

It is kinda scary, huh?

Well, it will take me a few days to get it done. Then I will show you the results...good or bad.

Got to get some sewing done too!! Geesh , just not enough time!

Hey and I figured out how to put pictures on my new blog!

(patting myself on the back...LOL)

getting started!!

WOO HOO !!!!
I finally did it! I am officially a blogger.
Now what do I do next?
I love reading other blogs & most are so informative or cute or funny.
Reading is a lot easier for me than posting right now. But here goes.........

I have done all sorts of crafts since I was a little girl. I've taught decorative painting classes for several years. I love to paint murals on walls and shop at yard sales for treasures to paint. My husband says if it sits still long enough I will paint it.I also love to sew,crochet and do mosaics.
I hope to be showing you some of my creations soon.
I have been doing a lot of primitive, rustic, country things for quite awhile. Then I started doing more of the shabby, cottage style things. Hence the name "Prim 2 Pink". I think I will be sticking with this style for some time. I do like the clean, fresh and fluffier look. And I haven't had many complaints from the rest of the family. Although Hubby wasn't to fond of the aqua color on my kitchen walls at first. Then when I put the first color of pink on the cupboards... He had a puzzled look on his face. I assured him it would look good after I put the white back on top and only left some pink showing where I sand the edges. I'll try and get a pic of the pink paint before I FIX it. Wish I would have got a picture of the expression on his face though. It would have been priceless!!
OK, I will keep you updated on my kitchen redo.
Right now I think I will check out some of the stuff
