P is for . . .



Pretty packages that arrive in the mail

This beautiful collection of treats was sent to me by the amazingly talented Sonia for being one of the winners of her giveaway. Visit Sonia and you will find that she is very excited about her own wonderful "P is for ..."



P is for . . .



Pottery Barn Kids catalogs because they are always filled with brilliant ideas like this wreath, woven with flowers and suspended by ribbons



or this vase of flowers hanging from a curtain rod. Positively perfect!

P is for . . .



Printing new business cards and thank-you tags for my Etsy shop customers

P is for . . .



Pay it Forward

This purposeful collection of pink was sent to me by sweetie pie Lisa over at PupyLov. According to Lisa, I am to ask the first 3 commentors of this post if they would like to participate. If so, I send each a handmade gift (Lisa called this gift to me "cheating" but I love it!) and then they do the same. So, if you are one of the first 3 to leave a comment, please send me your address to play (or "pay") along. My email address can be found at my profile.
