100th Post Give Away and Happy Pink Saturday~March 12th

Happy Pink Saturday!
I know it's early Friday morning, but I'm excited about something and before I show you my Pink Saturday offerings I’d like to share something else.

Since I’m at home every day now there are a few changes in my routine. The most significant is being able to blog more. I started my blog in August of 2009. I only posted 3 times that year. I wasn’t sure I really wanted to post my thoughts and my creative endeavors for others to read or see. But, slowly I began to post more. August of 2010 is when I feel I was really ready to get more involved. I had made the decision to retire at the end of the year from my job and I wanted to get back to being creative.

(The links to the company that offered a $25.00 gift certificate to me for my 100th post give away celebration has been removed as per requested by the awarding company).

Good luck my friends!Sometime after 5:00 PM today please hop on over to say hello to our P.S. hostess Beverly at How Sweet The Sound and then click on the links she has listed to visit over 100 other participants for some awesome eye-candy. Beverly asked that we post pink and green today in honor of St. Patrick's Day. I thought this needlework piece that I made a long time ago would be great for today. There are pink and green colors and it has spring babies and clover. Clover?

I guess I need some shamrocks, below is my St. Patrick’s Day offering.

Those tricky little leprechauns!


  1. Isn't retired life grand. Loved your post today and Happy St Patrick's Day photos.

  2. Congratulations on your 100th post! I know what you mean - it sometimes takes a while to get into the swing of it. And having more time is definitely a plus! Looking forward to seeing many more great posts from you.

  3. Thanks for the chance! I'd like to win.
