Lots PINK and asking my "Friends" for help...

Hello PINK Saturday. I have lots of PINK creations to share with you today. If you like the color PINK grab a cool drink, your computer and enjoy some wonderful posts. There are many PINK Posts at How sweet the Sound. I am definitely "Hooked on the color PINK. If you want to see what others are hooked on, visit Hooked on Houses. Before I begin to share what I created, I want to tell you what all these creations were made for. I have a wonderful friend, who years ago started a non-profit organization called Macomb Charitable Foundation. (click her for the link) The Macomb Charitable Foundation was started to help children living at or below poverty level in Macomb County, MI. It is their desire to focus on the child . To make that child’s life richer, not just by offering assistance with worldly goods, but by offering kindness, humility and respect.
Michigan has been hard hit by the decline in the economy, mainly because of the automotive industry. Macomb county has seen a rise in families loosing their homes. 82% of these families have not faced financial hardships in the past, and now find themselves with no where to live. Over 650 children in Macomb have families who have lost their home. This is where you can help me out. Macomb Charitable Foundation relies on the generosity of others. The largest fund raiser for MCF will be in October. They will be holding a silent auction and are in need of items. If you are creative or just blessed in your life, I am bolding asking that you would consider donating an item for the auction. Through blogging with many of you, I know how creative you are. Please consider helping a child. Any new item would be much appreciated. You can contact me through my email or post a comment.
So, now to share with you what I donated when we had a get together this week for MCF. Can you guess what color everything was? YOU GOT IT, PINK!
A bright PINK flower and some wonderful pearls were added accessories to this girly apron....
If you love to golf, this fabric is perfect! Don't you just love the big PINK bow?
The PINK flower is detachable, so it can be placed wherever you like. I added some chic gloves to wash the dishes in. Isn't this the perfect hostess gift!
To match the pearl necklace, a pearl button is an added embellishment....

A handmade journal with matching gift card and bag were added to my donation...

I found the perfect wired ribbon to put on the journal. PINK and GREEN....my favorite color combination. I added a page marker with a little pearl button.
Last but not least, a pretty PINK pincushion with matching gift bag. The new addition to my pincushions is the little silver spoon. I embellished it with a pearl button. I am a girly girl and just love pearls! More pearls and a butterfly charm were added to the pins.
A combination of PINK ribbons made a charming bow which is topped off with a large heart pin and more buttons.
I had the wonderful opportunity to visit some of the families that MCF has blessed. It has been a humbling opportunity and has opened my eyes to see that even though my life may have challenges I have truly been blessed by God. It's wonderful to be able to use the talents I have been given. It has given me the opportunity to create items that may in turn be used to generate funds to bless the life of a child in need. Consider creating and donating a "Gift From Your Heart" to MCF that will be a blessing to a family in need. I look forward to hearing from many of my blogging friends..... I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my PINK creations. Enjoy the sunshine!
Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others,
faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.
1 Peter 4:10
