The New Blog

Hi Everyone,

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!

Hey Julie - in regards to the comment verification (the letters and numbers stuff) - you DON'T need them when you're using TypePad. They've got an awesome spam-blocker that will flag like 99% of spam comments without using the verification.

I can't remember when they added this feature (you don't need to do anything to enable it - it's just there) but I have had all spam comments immediately flagged and they're put in a separate place that only I can access and delete - so no visitors can see them.

I HTH! :)

yellow houses are great! Ours was yellow when we lived in Ireland. Certainly brighten up those drab days! Off to look at the new blog

Moxie Fab did this blog post about gray and yellow:
http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2009/02/im-dreaming-in-yellow-gray.html

I did give them a come-uppance for failing to include Everafter (the best collection ever anywhere!). Probably why I did not win a prize.

~Teresa said...

The new blog looks great - unfortunately I am unable to comment there, apparently because I do not have a Typepad account? I run into that on a few Typepad blogs, but not all of them, so I am wondering if it might be in the settings on who you allow to post comments? Could you check that if you get the time? I am sure that others that do not have an account with them would love to post also (unless noone else has this issue)...

On another note, I love yellow. I do not wear yellow clothing becaus it washes me out, but my bedroom has a light yellow comforter set with pretty mauve and pink roses, and I am thinking about painting the kitchen in a light creamy yellow...sounds so bright and cheery and sunny, even paired with my deep red and roosters..at least I think it would go well together??? I don't care for grey though, but maybe it is because it is such a dull and dreary color..
Enough of my rambling!
Teresa

Love the shared Layout. I brought out my bright yellow paper this morning to play with. We must all be sick of this time of year and longing for SUN!

Carol Weimer said...

Oh yeah....prizes, I love prizes. Be back tomorrow!

Maria said...

Didn't have any problems leaving a comment.
So far so good!!!

Julie said...

Teresa,

I thought I had my typepad settings set to allow anyone to comment. I'll double check that. Maybe it's time to test their customer support!

apaintergirl said...

you're a tease!
and, i love it!

Bonnie (eggette) said...

Oh my I LOVE yellow! I used to have a yellow kitchen and then I thought it was too bright and painted it firebrick red..............I miss my yellow kitchen......the red is a little uh oh ....

mustangkayla said...

I tried to post on the typepad yesterday and couldn't, but attempted again today and was able too!

~Teresa said...

Julie it did let me...hooray!! I don't know why it wouldn't let me before and does now, but I am happy!!

Thanks so much!

momof8judy said...

Love the layout!!
The new blog is great!!

marlis said...

Love the new blog, but typepad is having issues with scripts so many of us are locked out of posting on any typepad blog... bummer.

Erin Glee said...

That is so sweet of you to comment for me, Julie! I'll try to be extra good so I can use my DH's 'puter in the evening... the thought of missing a chance at Cosmo Cricket FABRIC makes me want to cry! I'd have to stare at the Flip side of "Lena & Hans" from "Dutch Girl" and the chicks from "Honey Pie" to make it through the day!
I tried the new blog site again this morning, and it still won't work for me, but 52 other people had commented, so it is my computer.

Julie said...

Erin,

Just let me know, I'm happy to enter you if your hubby's computer is occupied.

Toys have a special term with kids that are beyond understanding of a common man. People just see that a kid is happy with toys. What they can’t see is that the kid considers the toys as the pals. Toys are the non-living objects, but for the kids, it’s the liveliest friends that a childhood could ever have. Collections at www.righttoys.in/products.asp?brand=14 describes this perfectly.
