Fun With Color

Well I survived the eye doctors! Spent the whole day on the couch wearing those cool plastic sun shades that wrap around your whole face. I was a true vision of loveliness.

Now on to important things like these cool paint chips!


They have little windows cut out so you can really see how they interact with other colors. Great idea!

And new mini Space Spores!


The colors were inspired by those fun little candy buttons that come on the long sheets of paper. They were one of my sister's favorite candies when we were kids. I hope to finish these in the next few days, and post them in my shop!

I would also very much like to thank Kelly, the winner of my first giveaway, for her lovely blog post about me and her new little flower quilt! Thanks Kelly!

I love these paint chips. I admit, I steal them- and any kinds- from paint stores. You just never know when you're going to need that "perfect" reference.

I am completely loving the mini spores! Unlike a typical ACEO, they are square, and I heart squares.

Glad you survived the eye Doc & hope all is ok.

LOVE those mini Space Spores! I've never heard of the candy buttons that inspired the colours. Sounds like cool kinda candy!

I am obsessed and take huge stacks of these paint chips, without buying any paint. I always feel guilty, but I must have them!

I keep waiting for the Paint Chip Police to come and take me away!

I did an art project for a color class like those chips using this special paint paper. It was fun.

I am a paint color fanatic. I have all the benjamin moore swatches and I paint little squares all over my walls and live with them for months until I make a decision.

Glad to hear your eyes are back to normal. We can't get very far without 100% vision in this game!

This is a brilliant idea! Now I know what to do with all of those stashed paint chips. Oh, and I am loving your installments of "everyday pleasures".
