good morning pink ladies! i'm joining beverly and her pink gang again this weekend to share some pink pics! below is a faux snakeskin bag i sewed for another craft show. it's really soft but hard to sew!
these two are made from recycled sweaters. i'll put some more pictures on flickr of all the others.
a couple of birthday cards from two of my sisters and mom and some milk bee soap.
two more handmade cards from my other two sisters. aren't they awesome!
and last but not least-this says it all!! 
to all my sisters here and online-i hope i can always be there if you need me! happy pink week!!

a couple of birthday gifts from wednesday! a wonderful day starting with breakfast and then eating out that night with my immediate family (minus rach). below is the candle from her, jonathan and georgia. it smells wonderful and glows such a warm, fall color.

a perfect winter coat from kt, derrick, misty, paul and gabe. it's warm!! and i love the color! my above post will show some of my breakfast goodies!

also received a watch from eric and lee but haven't taken a pic.

pink saturday mittens

pink saturday mittens, originally uploaded by suesueb.

these are my first knitted mittens! not too hard. i made them for the "heart to hands" to send to kids in LOCKPORT, New York. a friend pointed out that coincidence since i missed it. (i live in lockport, LA). i hope to do a red pair and then ship them off this week. check out all the PINK blogs on pink saturday through "how sweet the sound".

never enough to do!

merry christmas! i know it's a little early but if i don't start now i'll never be ready. (who am i kidding-i'm never ready!) these next few weeks will be crazy because i have to make party invites (almost done), some crafts for a show, (none new done) and then i signed up for a ornament swap with amy (my present to me). 

aren't these cupcakes adorable? and chocolate-my favorite. at least these are calorie free. they were created for georgia's first birthday and i used my cricut.

these little cupcakes below were inspired by betz white. of course, down in south louisiana it's hard to find lots of wool sweaters to felt so i made do with what i had.
and last but not least, THANKS for giving. to all my friends, family, and anyone who passes on some bit of kindness or a smile. november has always been a nostalgic month for me and it's more so now. my birthday, which i'm glad to be able to celebrate, but it means winter is coming and that's really not my favorite time of year. gloomy days bring me down and i have to work especially hard to stay optimistic about things. my foot hasn't healed yet and that is really frustrating also. anyway-i am grateful for all i have. all the love and family closeness that so many people don't have. i thank God always. happy thanksgiving to you all!!

the weather has been beautiful here-perfect fall! unfortunately, several of us have head colds and the general feeling around here has been sort of lousy. the improve my spirits i, of course, read blogs and i came across this post through greeting arts blog. a beautiful mission to help others and i've been wanting to try to knit mittens (and not too many people here wear them). if i don't succeed i'll just go out and buy some. hopefully i can do it. join me if you can! thanks.
