Pink Saturday...and a small confession...and a winner

I went to Portland today...I tried to pass the store, but the SMELL. omg...soooo yummmmy...so I confess, I bought this"to-go". It did make it home without a bite (I did taste Staceys icing.lol) I took a photo...then devoured it. EGGNOG...with eggnog pudding in the center....SO GOOD!!!
I managed to whip this up last night. I hand cut the circles, then notched them, then pulled in little stiches, then added the center circle, then embossed some little tiny pins with pink embossing powder. Whew!!
I stiched the ribbon on around her neck to make it poofy.
Heres a set of Salt and Pepper that I painted


I just hit the backspace button and one of my pictures just dissappeared

Here is my latest Easel/ Christmas Tree Ornament
Happy Pink Saturday to all!!
Thank you Beverly for hosting this day!
Now for the winner of the candle holder...
Lady Janes Emporium
She's new to blogging, so if you have a chance, stop by and say Hi. I'm sure she would love hearing from you all...I sure do.
I'm so glad I came up with that question...I love hearing what everyone had to say about their home.
I had to laugh...I don't think that I have EVER gone a whole week without changing my banner, hopefully I'll get back to normal after this weekend.

Hi Laurie

It's the hood ornament here! LOL
Is that a huge cupcake or is it just how you took the photo?? It looks seriously yummy.
I have just had trouble with photos disappearing too when I back spaced and all sorts of other dramas with my last post, so I sympathise with you!
