It's An Enchanted Bird ~ : ' )

This summer I attended the Artful Gathering Event. It was an amazing online art retreat. I was only able to take one of the fantastic courses they offered. I decided to take a drawing class with Elizabeth Johnson. During the classes I experienced some health issues and didn't get the project finished before the classes ended. I did purchase a DVD from Elizabeth and I'm glad I did. Elizabeth is an awesome instructor, she teaches step by step instructions and she introduced me to Derwert Inktense colored pencils. They are a fun new art toy that I love playing with. Here is my finished enchanted blue bird.

Elizabeth's blog is Wind and Honey Creations.  If you ever wanted to try a drawing class Elizabeth offers online classes.

Happy Pink Saturday

Pretty pinks. I found this beautiful pot of pink mums at Lowe's. As with so many things proceeds from the sale will be donate to breast cancer research.

The pink stonecrop is growing in our flower bed, this is how it looked last week. Today it is sort of brown and shriveled.

 Happy Pink Saturday! Please hop over to How Sweet The Sound and say hello to our P.S. hostess Beverly.

Calling All Angels...

Happy Pink Saturday my friends!
October is breast cancer awareness month but this week I'd like to make you aware of another type of cancer. My PS post this week is dedicated to my niece Samantha. I want to help her promote her new Etsy shop because proceeds from her sales will be going to a worthy cause. Please read her Etsy profile statement below and then hop on over to her shop by clicking on the photo.
I think I see some pretty pink flowers.

Samantha's Etsy profile statement: 

"I've always loved making things, being creative, reusing old pieces... Etsy is giving me a chance to do something fun, practical, and hopefully worth owning/wearing! :)

I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma on September 8, 2011. I've decided that $1 from any item $10 and under, and $2 from any item $11.00 and above, will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (and the Light the Night Walk) to help raise funds that will go towards finding a cure.

It's important to give back, and If I am lucky enough to sell items on Etsy, I'd like to be doing it for a good cause. "

To help Samantha reach her fund raising goals I will be donating $2.00 from the sale of any item in my Esty shop Stonecrop Cottage during the month of October. I'm also requesting that all of my Prayer Warrior Angels in blogland will add Samantha to your lists.

Last but not least a big thank you to Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for hosting our fun Pink Saturday blog hops!

Autumn Lace

I made these pouches and I wanted to enter them in the Autumn Lace challenge at Dezinaworld last week.  Due to being ill for a week I didn't make the challenge deadline and have not been out to play until today.

I missed you all!

They were fun to make. CAN you guess what materials I used to make my pouches? The Halloween images hanging by the tiny clothes pins and the ones tucked inside the pouches are from Dezinaworld.
