Happy Dot Year!

We must live as we think, if not just by thinking as we have lived. Paul Charles Bourget

Happy day 3!

Today I'm excited! I discovered the web I needed to finish the polka dots hooked. I love to create pages full of colorful polka dots, I find it fun and addictive in equal parts. And today I found inspirational tool I needed. I discovered Seeds Design, the web of an artist named Jessica lover of color. In the Palette Search section you can find some pictures precious inspire you to capture a beautiful color palette and lovable. And I liked it so much, I decided to do a few sheets of polka dots using these color palettes. But I'm having a lot of work to cope! As I am an obsessive perfectionist, could not settle for making a single page for each palette, would be too easy! So I made 5 different combinations with 5 colors from the palette. And once I finished those first 5 pages, I liked so much that I thought it might be nice to keep a project in parallel with Jessica. (I'll tell her the idea, and I hope she looks good ... Since my versions will be free downloadable printables, and always with a corresponding link to her site ... I cross my fingers that she like my work!) So I decided to start the year and the blog, adding my vision of those wonderful color palettes that Jessica created daily. I had to choose 5 colors of each of the 4 pallets often publish daily Jessica in Design Seeds web (sometimes her pallets have 5 or 6 colors, but for my pages with 5 color polka dots and, therefore, 5 combinations of color, I thought that was enough daily work, as they account for 20 page layouts every day!). So I leave the combinations of these first 3 days of 2012, I've created with all my love for lovers of polka dots, and for all those crafters who want to use on their personal projects. Hope you like them!

How about you think? I have been a lot of work, but I think it was worth. I like them all!

Add new projects every day in my life, as you see in me is commonplace. I would say I need to feel alive and not get bored of doing the same thing... But the main reason for starting this blog, and share my creations and knowledges, my discoveries and learnings, was also a way to enter the blogging world of handcrafters. Some time ago I consult blogs regularly in my insatiable quest for new knowledge and experiences. But in recent months I'm following the blog of Ashley from Lil Blue Boo. I discovered it by chance, I know not where, and I loved her designs for children, always so fresh and fun! But what intrigued me and grabbed me was the human greatness of its author, Ashley, a woman I admire for her strength, her enthusiasm and her desire to live above it all. (From here, I send to Ashley my best wishes for the New Year that starts right, and I very much hope to continue infecting with your joy and spirit of your father, who both have motivated me to begin to see life from another glass, and want to change many things in my life to fill it with light, color and smiles.) If you want to visit a corner where to be happy, I recommend you visit Ashley's blog, is a courageous woman with a huge heart.

And in part, Ashley is to blame for encouraging me to start my blog on January 1 and not before the new year, hoping to fill this year's novelties and surprises to keep me busy and happy. And among many of these things these my sweeties, my sweet crochet amigurumis I'm making for my future Etsy shop. But I tell you this tomorrow, now I no longer have the strength.

Sweet kisses!
