Hello friends. I want to thank you all for your kind messages to me about the girls. They are doing great and are enjoying the start of Spring Break today. The girls are healing physically although we found out that Josey tore some tendons in her shoulder. They both are quite impressed with their own doctoring skills...Josey removed her stitches by herself and Jordan dug a piece of glass out of her head yesterday. Me...I'm a little scatter brained lately. My attention span is pretty short and I can cry at the drop of a hat. Time will help us all though and getting back to "normal" is our goal.
In the crafty world, I did take some time to treat myself to a fun class over at Studio Calico called Color Studio. Lisa Truesdell is doing a fabulous job of teaching the class and I'm finding the refresher/reminders about the color wheel to be very inspiring. One of the first class assignments was to find an inspiration photo full of color. I chose this photo from my March Pinterest Inspiration Board: Going Green. Happy St. Patrick's Day, by the way!
Another class assignment was to create a color kit inspired by our chosen inspiration photo. This was right up my alley as you all know I love to assemble little kits. A goal of mine is to revisit some of my older supplies so I made sure to do some rifling through my older stash of items. I started with some wonderful patterned papers that reflected the patterns in the pillows. I love the cottage-like colors and patterns.
Next I went to work on fitting some crafty items into a vintage green utensil drawer. I thought the green was so fitting for my Going Green Pinterest board theme. When assembling little kits like this to work with I like to limit myself to a particular sized container. Otherwise I could pile my whole craft room into a kit.vintage green typewriter Instagrams...and some die cuts from leftover kits.
I've been dabbling a bit with some cards and I need quite a few thank you cards....so I'll be posting some creations made from my color kit items soon.
Thank you so much for visiting. It feels good to be in touch again.
