The Store is Coming To Life!

As many of you may have already noticed, I have changed the name of my blog, from Pink Paintbrush, to Pink In Mind. I opened up a new etsy shop, Pink In Mind, and pretty much just started over! Why did I do this? I was very, well, bored with Pink Paintbrush. I didn't have anything in my shop that I painted, and I just felt photo quality was poor. So I created Pink In Mind, wanting to start fresh. Pink Paintbrush is still open, but I am letting the items expire, until they are all gone.

At Pink In Mind you will find totes and cute rings that are fun to use and wear. The young at heart will find these items creative, cute, and enjoyable. Most of the items in my shop include a "touch of pink," whether it's a whole purse, or a little flower! You will find messenger bags, clutch purses, iPod cases, button rings, necklaces, and more, all made with the best materials, and fine craftsmanship! 

There are new photos and new items all designed with care! I add an item a day, so make sure you check it out! So keep an eye out for all of these items coming up this month!

These Pink Bottle Cap Magnets are perfect for a little back to school gift! They come in various colors. A three pack is only $3.00!

This is a Clutch Purse made from Thin Denim! It is classy and fashionable! The purse is $10.00.

This is a Polka Dot Flower Headband! It fits girls from the pre-teen age, to any adult! It is only $7.00!

This is Maggie--my newest model! She is wearing a beach glass bottle necklace! The necklace is filled with small pieces of beach glass. You can take a part of the beach everywhere you go, for only $10.00!

This is one of my favorite items, a Messenger Bag with Dress Forms on it! It is perfect for your favorite girl! My Messenger Bags cost $15.00.

You've seen Capri-Sun Purses, but have you ever seen a capri sun pouch? Use this pouch as a wallet, coin purse, business card holder, or even a gift card holder! It is 100% green and could be yours for $5.00!

A New Summer Project!

If you haven't noticed, I LOVE the color pink. Everything I have is PINK. A pink room, pink iPod, pink bedspread, etc. I love to accent everything in my room, with a shade of pink. I had this really cute fluffy, hot pink rug that looked adorable in my room. The problem was, it shed. EVERYWHERE. It got in my hair, my clothes, my carpet, and every other place you could imagine. It was bad.

You may have seen the circle rug, my mom Maiden Jane, has made. It was made out of old t-shirts and woven with a hula-hoop. 

I really liked the idea, but thought a circle rug would not work for me. So I brainstormed, and thought some way I could make a big, long rectangular loom. My dad put together a loom, using PVC pipes, and I was all set to make the rug! I bought 50 cent pink shirts from Pat-Catans and started weaving.

I ran into a problem right away. Although I wasn't pulling that tight, the rug sides still pulled in.

So we brainstormed again and we decided to avoid that problem, we can simply weave the sides of the loom in...and when we are done, just pull the side pipes out. As I was weaving, I wasn't sure if it really was going to work, but after I finished, it turned out great!

It is very comfortable, fun, and looks great in my pink room! It only took me around 7 hours and was fun to do while I was watching T.V.
