Don't Forget To Shop Hop!

MMP Shop Hops are a type of contest where you try to find as many MMP “shopping bags” as you can. Each of our participating boutiques (see the list below) has hidden a shopping bag image on its website that says, “You Found It!” on the tag (see image to the left). Click that image to return to Make Mine Pink and get credit for finding it. The more bags you find, the better your chances of winning great prizes. See the prize list below to see what you can win!

Anyone (excluding MMP members and employees) can register to play. There is no cost and no obligation to purchase anything. However, if you do happen to find some products you might be interested in, don't forget to bookmark those pages so that you can come back later! Good luck!

Please join us for our annual Make Mine Pink October Shop Hop Monday October 5th. Pink October is always an exciting time for all of us at Make Mine Pink. It's the month that we try to give back even a little more than usual, while at the same time honoring our friends, family and customers that have had their lives touched by breast cancer. Please come and have some fun and take a chance at winning some fabulous prizes. Also check out the participating boutiques to see what they are doing in honor of Breast cancer awareness and PINK OCTOBER.There is no purchase necessary to participate in the Make Mine Pink - Pink October Shop Hop. Just find the shopping bags on the participating MMP Boutique sites, and enter into a drawing to win the associated prize. The Shop Hop begins on October 5th and ends on October 11th. All winners will be chosen the week of October 11th. Just click on the logo above to get started and be sure to visit Forget Me Not Dreams for our Shop Hop specials!

No, It's Not A Train At The End Of The Tunnel!!

Yes, our blog has been vacant for quite awhile it seems. Eileen & I both finished
our summers with wonderful trips to spend time with family. We both had a great
time, Eileen bringing home the everlasting cold and I became quite personal with
the much dreaded Piggy Flu. Yes, it's all that It's cracked up to be. Today was my
first big day off of the couch in 2 full weeks and I'm sure it will take another two to
three weeks to completely recover. I was able to get the Tamiflu anti viral from my
doctor, or I'm positive I would still be out of commission. Do what you can to stay

In the last few days, I have been able to work on some of my favorite photos,
making some into larger prints and in mattes for some of the gallery displays,
getting some ready for Christmas presents and making most into stationery
note cards. I believe I mentioned this project to you a while ago. It appears that
you need to be home and have hours available to actually work on making the
stationery or it doesn't get done. Brilliant!

Some photos are from my garden, some from trips that I have taken this summer
and prior summers and the fun candy shots are from working with my grandson.
All come from the heart! I promise that they will soon be listed on our website so
you can browse through many of them.
Have a wonderful, healthy week!

Celebrating Pink!

Shades of pink are popping up everywhere. Pink, once reserved for women's boudoirs and little girl's dresses is now being incorporated into the décor of homes everywhere. Sometimes in hues of summer sunsets, and sometimes bold and bright, pink makes a statement that is impossible to ignore. Mixing shades of pink makes a room feminine, but the single pink accent in a black and white room can command just as much attention. Over the past few years, pink has been proclaimed the new black. It's the color that fits in with any theme - from girly to chic, from romantic to modern. Store windows are filled with eye popping pink accessories and furnishings. Designers are using extravagant pink fabrics for whole pieces or to create just a few pink touches. What is it about pink that makes us love it so?

Make Mine Pink represents so much more than just the color pink. It symbolizes women, femininity, strength and calm. Whether you surround yourself with pink or just keep a special pink reminder nearby, pink celebrates life - everything you already are and all your hope for the future.

Join us in a celebrating Pink with a special event this Friday at Forget Me Not Dreams where you will find 10% off savings on anything "Pink" on our site. (10% re-embursed after purchase) Enjoy shopping the other boutiques at Make Mine Pink's Friday Event!
