Greeting Pinkettes and Happy Pink Saturday!! Huggies to the fabulous Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting this fabulous event!

My great niece, who is in her tweens, was visiting last weekend. When I showed her my recent projects....

the finished

and "wip" (for the pinkettes!)

She was thrilled and wanted to make one too. She picked out her ribbon and I wrapped the styro heart for her; showed her how to use the low temp glue gun and gave her a tray of supplies. (did you see that tween's mommy...I said LOW temp glue gun!)

She worked on it during her down time on Saturday and this is how I found her Sunday morning....

me: Whatcha up to my little tween-heart?

her: I'm working on my project, trying to finish it before I go home. I don't think I can finish it though *sighing* after she smiled for the camera ha!

me: How much more is there left to do?

her: Well, I've got all of the front done.....

....and I've started on the back, but the inside still needs to be done.

me: Wow, you've got quite a bit done. It is looking so beautiful!

her: yes, I know, but I what am I going to do? I can't finish it since I have to leave soon; and, I can't finish it at home because my mom won't like me using the glue gun with my little brothers getting into everything.

me: no worries darling. Tell you what, you come pose with what you have so far, and I'll finish it for you.

her: ok!

me: hold it up so everyone can see how beautifully it is coming along. Give a sweet smile for all the wonderful bloggers!

her: ok!

her: Will they really look at my project.

me: Yes indeed.

her: how will you know?

me: because when they have time, they will leave a comment.

her: really?! Can I see their comments?!

me: I'll let your mommy know when I post this and she can pull it up on the computer. May not be until next week.

her (jumping and *squeeling*): Woohoo! I can't wait! I hope they think it is beautiful!

her: don't forget to take pictures so everyone can see it finished, ok!?

me: I promise! Now go get ready.

She's such a darling! She is every bit her mommie; beautiful, sweet, bright, mischievious, caring...she makes my heart smile, just as her mommy does!

As promised, here is her finished rhinestone heart.

Maybe on her next visit I'll show her how to mosaic a birdhouse or strip and paint a table ha! (just kidding tween-heart's mommy!! lol!)

Thank you in advance to those of you who took a moment to leave a comment for my darling tween-heart!

Have a lovely pinkie weekend!

Happy Pink Saturday Tina Sweetie...
Oh my gosh what a beautiful share. That pink heart is so awesome, even the red, but sweetie I have got to tell you. Little Miss takes the prize, I love her rhinestone heart. Is that gorgeous or what? That smile of hers is just priceless.

I love it. Many thanks for sharing this beautiful Pink Saturday with me. I have so enjoyed this post.

Many hugs sweet friend, Sherry


How absolutely beautiful!! Now THIS is something I can do with my girls!! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such kind words. I am scared of this change but I have faith it will all work out in the end. And your mom IS right...out of the blue my old friend who I hadn't talked to in a year called me and told me the bank she works at (which is right down the street from me) is having an open house Monday and hiring 140+ people!! My mother and I always say "Mama's know everything..." and they seem to always do!
Thanks again for your support!

What a gorgeous young girl ~ such an awesome smile! She should be VERY PROUD of that beautiful heart wreath! I adore blingy stuff and I've made a similar button wreath before and know how loooong it takes to finish one! And hers is soooo very pretty, just like her!

Big TX Hugs,
Angelic Accents

Oh Tina,
She is just so precious!!! I actually loved the heart without it even being finished! The Pixies were just itching to get their little fingers on all those sparkly gems!
Your finished heart is ever so precious. I am thrilled she is so excited about seeing our comments. I wish I had blogging when I was a tween... but ha- there weren't even computers back then!! LOL

So nice to be visiting on Pink Saturday!

Dear Sweet Great Niece,
I just want you to know that you have created the most beautiful bling bling heart I have ever seen, and I love bling bling. It is just awesome. But I also wanted to tell you that you are as pretty as the heart is. I am so glad you wanted to finish this for us and that you wanted to read what we had to say about it. Maybe you will want to start your own blog one day. You have lots of talent and your aunt can help you learn all about it! Keep up the pretty work.

What a beautiful job she did. It looks wonderful.


Sue said...

Oh how sweet Great Aunt Tina is for finishing a precious project. Those hearts are just adorable! Okay, I bought a combination hi/lo temp. glue gun and dang blast it- the low temp is still Hotter than Hades! I burned myself upteen times while gluing moss to my syrofoam last week. Do ya think mine is defective? Or do I need to go out and buy one that is truly LOW heat? It has to be hot enuf to melt the glue, so how hot does it really get? Maybe I am nuts-Tina, but let me know. :-)
signed, your friend with the blistered fingers, Sue

Hi Tina! Your sweet tween niece is beautiful! Be sure to tell her that I love her finished heart. That took lots of patience and hard work and it is lovely. Thank you for sharing her and her sunny smile with us! Hugs, Terri

Monica@The White Bench said...

Hello Tina,
I stumbled across your blog while blog surfing... and stayed here for awhile!
OMG! That is amazing! Your niece made her rhinestone heart to perfection! Can't believe she's not a trained crafter ;)) Love the way she combined colors.
Great, great job! You must be proud of her (I'm sure you are!).
