I'm sharing today with Beverly@ for a very special Pink Saturday Post.


New Pink Bloomers in my garden.

When I started thinking about blogging all kinds of doubts and uncertainty clouded my mind.  I didn't feel like I really had anything anyone would want to hear.  Well this past 6 months has been so much fun and rewarding.  I can share my love of things quirky, vintage, crafty and I do so love it. I have made pen-pals with gals all over the US and abroad.

When I started the first day, it took me so long to come up with ideas, so I got a little spiral notebook and started writing down ideas, listing the things I have kept for years and things I might want to share.  I sat this notebook on the coffee table and laid it on my night stand so if ideas came in the night I could jot them down.
After awhile it started filling up. I also jotted down all the parties I wanted to join and their addresses so I would have them at my fingertips.  This has been so helpful for me.

The past few weeks I have been working on a mixed media journal for one of you to use.

It has plenty of pages inside and a plastic sleeve to add those little scraps of ideas when your out and about.

To have a chance to win the journal, please:
                     1:  Leave a comment on this post by June 18th.

             2: Become a follower, if your not already.

I will add all of the names and pick one on Saturday June 19 and post the winner on Pink Saturday that day.

Thank you for stopping by my blog on my first ever Pink Saturday. Thanks for your compliments on my background. I am not one of those computer-savvy people that can create their own background. Yes, I scrapbook...and love it...but I don't have the technical skills to go from one place to another. So, I must rely on the blog background websites that abound.

You know, I began blogging back in 2006, and, like you, I couldn't imagine anyone would be interested in what I had to say. But I was wrong. I developed some dear friendships, and even during the past 15 months, when I took a hiatus from blogging, those friendships have thrived. Blogs enable this great big world to be a little smaller, allowing us to connect with like-minded gals. I am very grateful for that.

Blessings to you,
Patti (Fill My Cup with Beauty)

Happy Pink Saturday, Ann. And, congratulations on the 100 post milestone. I agree that blogging is wonderful.

I checked to see if I was a follower, and I wasn't! How did that happen? Shame on me. But, I fixed it. I hope you'll follow my blog, too.
