Color Studies

This morning my husband spent 30 minutes helping me with the color studies for my most recent project.  I felt bad because he was late for work because of me!

But it’s days like today I feel so lucky to have an artist as husband. I always say that he’s my secret weapon!

Happy Friday Everyone!

The earthquake and tsunami in Japan has really hit home to me.  Being an ESL instructor I have several current and former students who are either in Japan right now or have family and friends there who are affected by the aftermath of everything that has happened. I’ve heard back from so many of my students who are thankfully safe, but there are still so many more who are struggling to even get the basic necessities of food and clean water.

I’ve decided that I wanted to do something to help out in anyway that I can.

Bloomology has decided to donate a percentage of the profits from classes and arrangements to go towards in helping the relief efforts in Japan.

Click on the heart to sign up for classes!

Let’s continue to keep Japan in our prayers!

I love it when I read inspirational posts from other great bloggers and today’s no different. I ran across this great post on Design*Sponge about Constance Spry who’s a British Floral Designer and apparently a guru for floral designers everywhere. I’ve never heard about her until I read about it here.

I’m always open to learning and growing from other artists and designers and I’m absolutely loving Constance’s whimsical design style.  Looking at her work inspires me to push the limits on my own work as well.  She was never afraid to break design rules and wasn’t afraid to get inspiration from unconventional places.

I’m loving these very chic Shine Labs Napkin Rings that I saw through Outblush. These porcelain bone china rings made my mind race with a lot of ideas of what I could do with my own clay flowers.

But if you don’t have the patience to make your own, you can buy each of these for $12.
