it's color class part 1

OK so Friday and Saturday were great I'm ready for more!
I thought you all might enjoy a color class Heather taught most of this to me back in the day when she taught. most of this info is from her class so keep that in mind

color how much?
remember : Gallon, pint, ounce
think of it in terms of paint or like you decorate a room wall color, carpet color, molding(trim). Same thing just calling it something else, use your colors on your page in that order.
-neutrals are always white black grey and tan so you can always add them in the mix

remember this
the exceptions monochromatic and 2 tone
monochromatic paper schemes should follow a similar patter with a dominate color to start try to work in parts such as 3,5, or 7 but all in the same color family. Neutrals are usually just black and white in monochromatic themes (sometimes grey)

2 tone is just exactly what it sounds like 2 tones of color used equally. Neutrals can be tricky with 2 tone so just keep it as simple as possible

and remember these are not hard and fast rules (some rules were meant to be broken) just gentle guide lines. These little bits and pieces of info often come in handy when you get stuck on a page.

I hope you enjoyed color class today tomorrow we will spin the color wheel

so much

Where Do I begin again? I. Have. No. Ideal. I'm going to hit the ground running here and just say the past few years has held a great amount of change for my husband and I. We have lived new places made new friends and started over again. We are movers and shakers I guess. Not really just doing what we can to make life feel comfortable as possible. so lets get off and running, I haven't had a scrap space for almost a year, its been well over a year since I've used a cricut but not the gypsy. The cards most fast and quick and not picture worthy. As some things stay the same I'm still into clean lines its still a timeless favorite. So much of what you will see is rockin it old school or cute and quick and a few Pintrest inspirations. I'm a girl on the run so more quick than anything. For the first time in three years I plan not to travel for a few months and that makes crafting, blogging, and everything else less complicated and room for relaxation and fun. Enjoy the…

I want to live in Bexley

Of course you will not know this song however i must express myself

I want to live in Bexley
So I can drive a big car
I want to live in Bexley
So I can act like a big star

At least that's the way I remember the parody song in my head. This lovely song was composed by two male disk jockeys who hosted the pop music station in my home town. At the time Bexley was "the" place to live. So those who cant afford to live there naturally make fun of the people who do (do men really change as they grow older?) Today I was thinking about that song clipie and I went to Springhill Tn, drove through Franklin Tn, then we came to two little towns called Brentwood and Oak Hill. I must say I have seen some huge homes in my time I've been to parade homes worth millions and had more than 10,000 sq feet so yes I've seen big. However I have never seen a community of homes so big I would not be able to gander upon how big they were. Let my try to compare most of them, they made our old tow…


Ahh so I know no updates of late. A most lazy poster am I. I ve been not liking the current upload system for my pictures so that why I don't post often. Life is ok. We are still in Fort Worth. Traffic boggles my imagination daily I spend about an hour on the road everyday and its only 6 miles to hubby's work and back. Bright lights, big city, crappy traffic.

Do we like it? It's not the worst place we have lived. You'll find original Texans are friendly, problem is not many are around. Of course the possibility could be maybe I'm not that likable. I doubt I'll ever be able to answer that.

We have never bought a house for many reasons the main being ours in B.G. never sold. It sits after price reductions and after every real estate analysis you could think of. 30k plus under market value and yes I've had a recent estimate. The other is taxes. Taxes are about 6000 on a .25 acre lot here . so even if you buy a little house you have a horrid bill. In Arlington …
