prussian cerulean or cobalt?


blue1 Originally uploaded by dressform.

i'm diggin the search for colors.... i could do it all day... i wish i had the time....

talked out from teaching so today it's all about 3 things...

1. color - i couldn't stop at just one pairing of blue....

2. the image on the top right there segues to my next important duty... to THANK anabelle.... who somehow found me via the www and commissioned me to make her a drawing with thread... as we were emailing she offerered to send ME some goodies [not sure how i am the lucky beneficiary of this goodness, but i certainly can't refuse it]. she sent an amazing package !!! included were some adorable icecube trays... which i promtly used for "blue".... but that was the tip of the iceburg:

from annabelle
click on the photo if you want to learn what everything is... and there is so much goodness!! i'll just say that she spirographed me some tags.... if that isn't up my alley then what is??

and 3. the immensely talented jan has started a clever side project. do you need a blog button? . OF COURSE you do... especially when the first one is free!

green tomorrow.....

Lisa,
who is this person and why are they so amazing? That is such an awesome package-all that good karma is coming right back to you. Don't you love the "colors" thing? Your pictures are fab.

how crazy is that package. i am such a rookie, (the music swap being my first), but what is going on with that? love the spirographs!

immensely talented? me? yikes! (blushing)....
(thanks for the props! : D!!)

beautiful colors,!

Oh wow...the blues blow me away! The first two...so so beautiful...makes me want to take out my camera instantly but alas...it's dark outside already and I'm 'knackered'. ;)
And what an absolutely sweet and charming package!

I have another suggestion for the book club: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0316011770/sr=8-1/qid=1144263351/ref=pd_bbs_1/103-0552011-4055846?%5Fencoding=UTF8 (I bought it a couple of weeks ago and haven't started it yet) - but I have no idea if it really is any good. Not sure I could stand to read the Didion just now and I'm not into the "million little pieces"...so I'd go for "One Thousand White Women"...or are there any more suggestions?

mooncici.... :) blues are nice!

thanks vegas!

lisa bird... yeah. sure is! hip hip hooray!

abby.... i dunno exactly, but don't look a gift horse in the mouth! i love your pics as well!

jan.... packages are SO much fun. you are going to get hooked.... and YES IMMENSELY TALENTED!! get used to it!!

pat... glad you like the blue.... it's kind of looking like 1000 white women....

anke.... knackered you and me both! your suggestion looks interesting... i did think of one more... maybe i'll put it up for debate again.... although 1000 white women seems to be agreeable to everyone....

wendy! :)

you are so selling me on the D50. in fact, I'm ready to sell some of my own things just to get my hands on the D50... your shots are gorgeous! and I'm loving the concept of a color a day, focusing on what you have/finding the color in the details of the things you have. I've seen others doing this, saw where it started (such a brilliant idea from shash!)... I must do this!
