How About Orange ~ Jessica Jones

*****Warning *****


The post you are about to read will make you feel one of two things.....Incredibly creative or incredibly un-creative. Read at your own risk.

Jessica Jones with How About Orange (my maiden name was Jones.......how I wish I was related...think of the Christmas gifts I would get from her) is an amazing, gifted, super talented, creative being. WOW!

OK, so she's a graphic designer.........they always seem to have one up on the rest of us creative people........and she has her own line of fabric she designed and she makes the most wonderful things. I have looked at her blog several times and honestly, I get intimidated to do a write up on her...........then I think that perhaps.......just perhaps some of my readers don't know about her yet and I really should enlighten them. Oh no..........am I coming off as whining? Because actually I think I am whining and you know what? That's OK. Some days are like that. It's Thursday isn't it? I always whine on Thursdays.

One of the first things I remember drooling over was the room makeover she did.

BEFORE---

AFTER---

Want a closer look at that tree?

I know..........brilliant.

She really is THAT talented.

Love the other stuff she paints.........She even has desktops you can download that look like this.........plus some other really cool ones.

CUTE! Love the circles. This is so cool........another great idea for a teacher. You could do a whole set of something like this. This card is perfect isn't it? Simple, colorful, whimsical. I have a ton of buttons.........I think I need to make a few cards.Have you done the decorated magnet thing? Me too..........but not with felt. Another very cute idea.Kind of reminds me of getting to those thumb tacks I wanted to glue buttons to.......but here's her idea. Very cute.......and you know what?A tutorial, that's what!Her blog is spilling with ideas. Make sure you have a snack and a cool drink, because you'll be there for days.

Besides just showing HER ideas, she kind of features creative ideas she finds around blog land. Like I said...........you'll be there for days!

Enjoy!

Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments. I really do appreciate hearing from you. I try to get around to everyone, but I'm behind. Thank you!

AND!!! AND!!!! Spell check is back..........thank the Gods!
