Emerging from Hibernation for Pink Saturday



I am taking advantage of my days inside my home while our temperatures are soaring outside. I've gone through my scrap stash and made some useful little items that make me smile. So here's what I made:

A case for my little carry-everywhere camera.





An Ipod cover with a pocket for my hot pink ear buds:





And, last but not least, a soft, cuddly pillow for my reading chair:



The weatherman is promising some rainstorms and cooler temps for the weekend, and I plan on grabbing my umbrella and enjoying every minute of it!



This blog is a happy participant of Pink Saturday and Show and Tell Friday.

  8. Happy Pink Saturday Sherry Sweetie...
    What a beautiful share today. I love the little camera bag, and that is exactly what I need. I just throw mine in my purse when I head out the door. It has really gotten quite scratched doing that.

    You pillow, oh my gosh, I love the 2 fabrics together. That pillow looks so plush. Ooh-la-la. LOVE it.

    We are getting rain here in Phoenix this morning. I love it, but when the sun comes out later, we are so going to pay for it.

    What is this tax free weekend? I so it on a post, I guess I don't watch the news, so I don't hear about it. Just bought all the grandkids school clothes yesterday. Just my luck. A day early or a day late.

    Have a beautiful day sweetie. Many hugs to you and so much love, Sherry

  22. I am not sure where you are, but here in Michigan it has suddenly cooled off..Infact, the air made me think of fall, today....we could use a bit of rain, too. Things are looking dry....

    Everything you made is so cute and I love that saucy kitty!

  26. Whew...it's hot hot hot here too. Got a little break yesterday with high's only nearly 90 but back to 100's next week. ugh! Never seen a summer like this one. A cold cold winter and a hot hot summer. Love all your sweet covers you made. A friend made a camera pocket for me too (my purse camera is just like yours). It sure keeps the camera from getting all scratched up. Happy Pink Saturday!

  34. Guess what I bought for you today in KNoxville while Jessica and I were out going to a few thrift stores. It is a late birthday gift. If it is too far past your birthday, it will just have to be a friendship gift. I thought instantly of you and had to get it. You may not be able to guess the item but I know you can guess the color. I will be home on Thursday or Friday.
