Blue and brown together really do it for me. I love this color combo! Designer Christine Plumb put them together beautifully in this layered up valentine card that she sent to me last year.
Yes, it’s true, I save all the cards people send to me! I treasure them because they are a symbol of the friendships that have blossomed over the years and I love to decorate my studio with others artwork as my inspiration.
It reminds me of the time when I was being filmed to be on HGTV’s show Crafters Coast to Coast. (I just looked, and by golly the tutorials from the show are still available online – just click the hyper link to be taken there…)
What a crazy time that was! I had redone my studio just weeks prior to the arrival of the film crew. As part of my new decor I had posted artwork by my “beadie buds” all over the cabinets that would be in the background. The producer of the show told me that I had to take them all down, or have signed releases for them to be on television by the next morning. I put the call out to my Yahoo group, the source of all that amazing art, and how I wish you all could have seen the look on her face when I handed the producer a stack of release forms an inch and a half thick the next day! It was priceless!!
Not sure what got me off on that tangent but in case you can’t see the hyperlinks in the above text, click here to see the four projects that I made on HGTV: http://www.hgtv.com/thats-clever/cowboy-boot-tray-painted-aluminum-wall-art-microbead-box-and-pen-set-lacy-beaded-thank-you-card/index.html
