About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Swipe, swipe, swipe.......

....swipe.....that's music to my ears.

It's the sound my credit card makes when I make a purchase 
using a card reader at the register. 

Who doesn't love to shop, well.......besides most men.


Isn't this the cutest evah?????
When I saw this stamp I couldn't help but think of coloring it pink.  
It reminded me of some posh celeb that doesn't want paparazzi to bother them, so they 
dye their dog pink to go in cognito......Bwahahahahahahahaha!!!

Viva Las Vegastamps! has some of the cutest and most unsual stamps around.

But don't forget to mosey around and find some other goodies!!!!

There is an 'old' movie I remember watching as a re-run one saturday when I was a kid that had a blonde woman in it that loved the color pink.
EVERYTHING, and I mean everything was painted pink.  
I believe it was an old 50's movie.  It drove her man in the movie NUTSO.

Now me personally, I don't have quite the fondness for pink like a lot of crafters.
I've seen room after room after room that they designate for crafting, painted pink.  

Colors do affect your mood somewhat.....
below are some things that I found. 

PINK
Of course we all know pink as the true girly-girl’s favorite color, but it’s also associated with romance and happiness. Pink is very calming, so don’t wear it if you need tons of energy. While pink's calming effect has been demonstrated, researchers of color psychology have found that this effect only occurs during the initial exposure to the color. When used in prisons, inmates often become even more agitated once they become accustomed to the color.
Pink is thought to have a calming effect. One shade known as "drunk-tank pink" is sometimes used in prisons to calm inmates. Sports teams sometimes paint the opposing teams locker room pink to keep the players passive and less energetic.

Previously my studio was painted a pastel sage green by the previous owner and I HATED it.  Come to find out that green is in fact a nauseous color....it can make you actually feel sick.  
                  So then I painted my room a very calming AQUA BLUE
Blue

The color of the sky and the ocean, blue is one of the most popular colors.  Peaceful, tranquil blue causes the body to produce calming chemicals, so it is often used in bedrooms.  Fashion consultants recommend wearing blue to job interviews because it symbolizes loyalty. People are more productive in blue rooms.

Blue is one of the most popular colors, but it is one of the least appetizing. Some weight loss plans even recommend eating your food off of a blue plate. Blue rarely occurs naturally in food aside from blueberries and some plums. Also, humans are geared to avoid foods that are poisonous and blue coloring in food is often a sign of spoilage or poison.



So think twice before painting your walls...but I say if you LOVE a color then go for it. It will make you the happiest in the end. 

Until later, colorers...........Gotta split.......TFL!!!!!!!
