Cecily always inspires me with her fashion choices. She's not afraid to mix plaids and stripes and polka dots. She'll fearlessly pair an orange top with a green skirt and pink leggings and, somehow, it just works. Granted, she's 5, but I really love her fashion sense.

Over the past few years, I've become more courageous in mixing patterns and colors, and I think my crafty ventures are a big part of it. It's much easier to take a risk with sheets of paper that cost less than $1 than with articles of clothing or yards of designer fabric. Another plus is that some of the really smart paper manufacturers -- like Doodlebug Designs -- make supplies that color-coordinate. So you can mix fearlessly, just like Cecily.

Here are some very colorful projects I created with the Nifty Notions collection from Doodlebug Designs.

Appropriately enough, this photo was taken outside the Dallas Museum of Art. That mosaic just screams "take my photo!"

I didn't have letter stickers in all the colors I needed, so I whipped out my acrylic paint and altered a few white stickers to the colors I needed.

I made this monogram card using a letter sticker. I'm not quite sure who I'm going to give it to, but the great thing is that I can change the monogram by changing out the sticker and the person will think I made it just for them. Shhh...

And finally a mini album that holds some of my very favorite photos taken this summer. I've gotten into a habit of doing these "favorites" books, and they're always the first thing my friends and family members pick up when they come into my room.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the way you did the "colorful" title. And the decorated envelope makes the monogram card even more special. Great work as always!
