Pink Saturday


My creation, originally uploaded by bluebirdsandteapots.



My creationJust in time for Pink Saturday...I went to the mailbox and there was an itty bitty box, gift wrapped. I opened the box and there was this itty bitty book filled with creative ATC size treasures bound by Mary Ann into this incredible keepsake.

My creation

Fat with love, I say...

My creation

A while back I wrote a post about the Pink Itty Bitty Book project that another fellow Pink Saturdayer invited me to.

Thank you Nancy, it was so much fun. Mary Ann included a book for a friend of mine who just went through surgery for her breast cancer.

I know that she will love it. Each of us received one of these books to keep, and one went to auction to raise money for breast cancer. Mary Ann even included some sweets...pink of course!

Well, here are just some of the many gorgeous crafted itty bitty pink pages.

My creation

That's not the only pink inspiration. Every year I create a new design for Christmas, usually Santa for my friends and family. This year since I have an Etsy shop, I wanted to design Vintage Santas from my tin Vintage chocolate molds. I was thinking as I was designing my 2008 Santa...

Santa 2008

What about a PINK SANTA. So I created this itty bitty hanging Santa, which I called PINK SATURDAY SANTA.



I added some pink and red ribbon, a few bells, baubles and a teeny tiny name Santa in Edwardian Script. Oh and there had to be glitter, Vintage glass glitter.



I just love Vintage Santas, so I hope you like this one. A Pink Saturday inspiration of course. On the back is a teeny envelope with a teeny matching Christmas Card which I created using one of my Christmas paintings.



This brick red color is truer to the color of the background.



I just listed him in my Etsy shop. I made five of the pink and five in red. I will list the red one tomorrow.



I'll be adding more one-of-a-kind Santas to my Etsy shop as the month goes on, and including some special ones too. Bev over at How Sweet The Sound has a list of all the posts for Pink Saturday, so please stop by and be PINK with inspiration.

The song for this post is LOVE IS ALL AROUND.

What fun the pink handmade book must have been to look through, it looks so packed full of beautiful images! I love the vintage santas you made too, although I am more of a red girl than a pink:>) I'm back online and catching up with my bloggy friends! Yay!

That itty bitty book is great! Good cause and loads of inspiration too, does a girl want more? Those pink Santa's are so clever, though here we are awaiting the arrival of the real Santa (yep the ancestor of yours!) half November. Until he leaves, December 5th, it is not done over here to have any Christmas decoration in the house. Btw He is dressed in red too, but he is a modern guy!
