A craft...a recipe...a tip...a party...a short story...a  poem...
a  fashion find...a  favorite product...your favorite  post...
whatever makes  your blog  fabulous!
That is what Tickled Pink is all about!
{and it does not have to be PINK}
*************************
BIG NEWS!
{or at least I think so}
Starting on 12/30/10 I will have a linky up for
THE BEST of 2010 and Tickled Pink.
(I need to make a button now!)

There will be three categories:
*Crafts/DIY/Decor*
*Recipes/Food/Drink*
*Writing/Stories/Fiction*

I am going to go through old tickled pinks (in all of my spare time) and look for the ones that really stood out. Feel free to drop me a line if you have some really spectacular to share.
*************************
I am Tickled Pink because...
I have been enjoying cooking and crafting with the kiddos.
That is the best part of the holidays.
The sick, the crowds, the stress, the busyness I could do without!
*******
I met the new neighbors and they seem delightful and
have already invited me over for wine!
*******
I am planning the menu for Christmas Eve. We usually do Spaghetti and meatballs, but I am thinking about trying my hands at tamales. Any of my cooking buddies have advice for me? Should I just order them already made?
*******
I was blown away by the fabulous wreaths and tutorials  at Modern Country Style for Wreath week. Click HERE for the link to the party (it is closed but there is so much goodness waiting for you!)
*******
Teauna at From Cup to Cupboard was featured in Woman's World Magazine!
Congratulations. I must admit I do love that magazine - so much good info in there!
It is one of my secret magazine obsessions.
Now, she is having a giveaway to celebrate.
I have always wanted a Silpat...
and now here is my chance...and yours too...to win one!
Go check out the giveaway!
*******
Win, Lose or Blog is starting back up...hurry quick if you want to apply.
The new "season" begin 1/10/11!
********
I must take off on my sleigh for a few days to tend to some unexpected business.
Hubby is holding down the fort (YIKES!).

  16. What a small world. Our annual tradition is spaghetti on Christmas Eve. However, we use sweet sausage instead of meatballs.

  17. Holly,

    Thank you So much for featuring my journal cover! I am most definitely tickled pink!! :>:>

    There has been some fantastic blog goodness out there and I loved hopping around to find it. I remember those too cute melting snowmen cookies and enjoyed all the great wreaths at wreath week. I can't wait to go check out some more........after I find the angel, waiting to go on top of our tree! (We only decorated it almost two weeks ago...without the missing angel! So, its one of my many missions to complete today! :>)

    We wrap up school for 2010 in forty-five minutes. Hope you are having great holiday fun with your family this season. We definitely are. One of our favorite traditions we'll do next week....the annual Christmas lights drive. There's nothing like the oooo's & ahhhhh's from the kidlets!

    Happy Friday, Holly!

    :> Karen

  26. Awesome collection of posts!!!!

  27. Holly, I love those melted snowman cookies! So, tamales, eh? You should talk to Krista (Benjamin's mom). She's a tamale master! I went to her house for a tamale making party a few New Year's days ago. I have a mega-sized stock-pot for steaming them if you'd like to borrow. Yeah, yeah, mention Mexican food and I get way off on a tangent. Well, thanks for another fab Tickled Pink. You're killin' me with the "Best Of". You gotta share your secret on how you stop time in order to get all your amazing projects accomplished. Tee hee! Jenn

  28. I'm tickled pink to join the party! Happy Holidays!

  29. How funny! You mention tamales, I got tamales! Check out my blog today (or the linky) for a vegetarian version. You can easily "meat" them up well.

    Also, thanks for the shout out! That brittle is really good. I've made three batches this week already for teacher gifts and Xmas parties. Yum!

    Have a great weekend!

  33. I love the shutter as a card holder. I mad a magazine rack and a memo board out of 2. I have 2 more in the garage. I think I'll do that next year. Now I'm gonna hop over and get a closer look at this wagon.

  34. Hi Holly =) We always do Mexican for Christmas, we love it and it's especially nice for all the families that also go to their in-laws for more traditional meals. That being said, tamales are a pretty big time commitment. We did it one Christmas and it was a delicious mess =) I don't know where you are but if there's a Mexican grocery store in your vicinity they will have the masa maybe already mixed to a good consistency, so you can play with fillings and keep it a bit simpler. And if you need a recipe send me a message and I can hunt mine up, although it's sort of a pitch and pour recipe instead of a precise one. =)
