january blues


it has been wonderful this month working on a year of color with kari. i have realized i really create a lot with blue. it is a color of such calmness for me.
with a deep coating of snow outside that doesn't seem to be melting the winter white and blue palette suit me very well.



i can't resist posting a few of the photos i have been taking. i have the whole weekend off with the promise of beautiful sunshine ahead. i'm dreaming of hours and hours in my studio with the boys gone on a winter scout campout. i'm smiling a bit...

Happy Birthday, Julie. I was just going to pop in to say that I'm glad you are enjoying the jewelry box and look it's your birthday. You've made me fall in love with blue all over again.

hey julie,

I'm new to your blog through year of color ...... I am in love with your work, and just wanted to stop by and tell you so!

I am doing a plug on my blog tomorrow for year of color and I also included your info and a couple photos of your rings! Everything is just so beautiful and the presentation is well done!! xo

Well,I just read that it is your Birthday so I am wishing you the best! I absolutely love all your blue creations. They make me giddy! I finally had to admit that I have a turquoise/robin's egg blue/powder blue/splash of emerald green and red addiction. It was passed down from my mom and given to her from her mom! What can I do about? Make as much of life this colour as I can! Ha!
