Let's start with a project. Emilie Ahern sent me this beautiful layout. I wanted to show it because I read a thread the other day about people hating to use the color yellow. This isn't a strong yellow, or too much of the color, but I love yellow (even bright, loud yellows). I want to paint my whole house yellow, but Eric has different ideas!
The color is so fresh, happy and sunny. It is the opposite of the constantly grey sky outside my window! So, don't be afraid of yellow. Start with subtler tones. Pair it with a nuetral color like grey, black, white or chocolate. You might just be amazed at the results!
On another note, as far as I know there were only two problems with the new blog. Erin Glee cannot leave comments on typepad and so Erin, I will be your personal comment leaver if you wish. Leave a comment here letting me know if that's agreeable to you.
One other person commented on having to enter those funny looking numbers/letters. I will look into that. I want to have the blog as easy to use for as many people as possible. At the same time, I don't want tons of spam comments. So, I'll see what options typepad offers, but I can't make any promises that the funny letters will go away.
To celebrate the new blog, we will have a SPECTACULAR prize offering over there tomorrow. I would have put it up today, but we're in the middle of a snowstorm and some of the things I want on the giveaway are only at the office.......... namely fabric!!! So, be sure to check back tomorrow. You won't want to miss it!
