Yep, it is another post about Pearl. Crafting has taken the back seat to holiday craziness and I still want to post once in awhile. Here is Pearl singing Holiday songs for you all. Our pets seem to love hanging out around the tree. It is very cute.

Pearl is really getting into the holiday mode here sporting her red and green eyes just for the season. No that is not photoshop her eyes really reflect red and green.

On another note I think I will change the title of my blog in the new year and take out Ray since I don't talk much about him on the blog and change it to Pearl.

Squirrel watching

I thought I had posted this here a long time ago but I didn't. I have a blog to keep our friends and family who live faraway in touch and posted it over there but forgot to put it here as well. I post some things on both blogs and and some how forgot to add this post here.

Here is Pearl and Crusty watching a pair of squirrels chase each other around our back yard. I really can't tell who likes/dislikes squirrels the most. Usually Pearl and Crusty do not come near one another but on this day they teamed up for a round of squirrel watching.

Welcome to the World of Pink & Hank

If your looking for the cutest cards ever, you can stop looking now, because they can be found at Pink & Hank, a wee little shop on Etsy.

Merry Cards
Retro with a fresh twist! This is a set of four 4.25" x 5.5" cards, each with a different design and white A2 envelope.

The set is tied with ribbon and pinned with a button that matches one of the card designs. The cards can be sent to others, but the button, you should keep. It's one of those "favorite things" we all like to have.

Global Warming My Heart Cards
Warm some one's heart with these little snow globes during this chilly season.

Calm with a breezy twist!
This is a set of three 1.25" button pins, each with a different design.

The set comes on a Pink&Hank card with a white A6 envelope. Keep them as a set or share one or two with your swell pals. The card comes in a padded mailer.

Jolly Button Pins
From Christmas past to Christmas present! This is a set of three 1.25" button pins, each with a different design to make your Jolly-Holly-Days!

Here is Sheri's Bio From her shop.
Pink & Hank is a place to find art created by Sheri Berry Designs. Most of my time is spent designing art for licensed products, but this is a place to get to play and cut and fold and create just as I want. It is one of the most enjoyable aspects of creating and now I get to do it here.

"Sheri Berry" is a nickname that has followed me since I was a wee tyke. "Pink & Hank" were nicknames given to my grandparents when they were a young and hip couple. Well, I thought if it worked for them all those years ago, let's give it a shot now and see what happens.

On another note about Sheri, there is a Giveaway for a complete set of this product to go to one lucky winner. It includes the entire line including the Village Paper Pad and a storage folder! Enter by Thursday, December 11. You might want to stop in and check it out at

A Tiny Thanks

I sent off my Embellished felted balls today. They sold on Etsy and I was sad to see them go. I really hoped no one wanted them so I could keep them, I know I can make another set but I really get attached to the things I make and it is hard to see them leave. I made a little felt pouch to put them in and added a tiny felt pouch with a tiny little bitty acorn and a note that said "A Tiny Thanks". I really do appreciate it when some one likes what I do, but when some one will pay for it really makes it special. I am thankful for that.

Now off to the Post Office...

I am almost all done with the Christmas ornament swap that I joined. I will get them off in the post today... I wish I had better lighting for the photos but I think part of the issue is the new filters I just put on my lenses. They are a different brand than I normally get. I needed to replace them since I keep braking them. I am not very easy on my camera. I tend to be rather rough on it.

Hyacinth (aka Crusty) is getting ready for her yearly tree hunt. She loves to attack the tree and make it sway to see how many ornaments she can get off and play with at night while we are asleep. I think she was a little disappointed when all the acorns came off the feather tree. Such a good kitty.
