i'm running late!

First off, Sorry!! I'm checking in quickly to say that my inbox is over-loaded with emails I haven't opened yet. So if you've emailed in the past week and a half, I'm not ignoring you!! We all have been sick with a virus, lots of trips to the doctors and a trip to the emergency room for Alaina, and I'm hoping to not have a repeat of that with Chase. He's the last one that needs to get over this and then, fingers crossed, no more illnesses! xo ~ Tara

So, now I have a twitter page too. :) We'll see how many different sites I can keep with. :)) I'm having a hard time trying to find people I know have profiles with them, I guess I'll have to play around over there until I get the hang of it.

I'm suppose to be getting a couple of scrapbook pages done today, but it seems as though I'm easily distracted! :) I'm also working on a new flower tutorial for next week. Be back soon with that! xoxo ~ Tara

most of my ideas,

start with a combination of colors that I like. I love color! When I was little I loved when Grandpa needed to go to Home Depot, because not only could I tag along with him, it also meant a stop by the paint sample counter. Don't all kids like those paint sample cards?

from this combination of colors:

to the actual products

Fast forward 20 years, and now I just make my own little color samples. I put together a new 'Color Idea' book over the weekend. It's an index card book, that I made a quick cover for (must love random stickers and left over rub-ons!!) and started adding little squares of paper. Combos that I want to remember next time I need a creative spark of inspiration. :) and it's only 3x5 inches, perfect fit for in my bag so I can take notes when I'm out and about.

So, the next time you're at Target look for a little index book. I also made one for Sketches, I'll share the contents of that one later. Happy weekend!
