Color in Action

Color has always moved me and inspired me, both in my art work and in my life.  These are some moments and images that encapsulate why I am so drawn to vibrant colors. When I look at these images it is clear that color has the power to transform even the ordinary into the extraordinary.

The Orchid Show

A Beautiful Reflection
One dreadfully grey, damp, typical New York afternoon I visited 'The Orchid Show: On Broadway' at the New York Botanical Gardens. The dreary day seemed to melt away as I stepped into the warm and humid greenhouse; I felt as if I had been transported to the tropics!  The impressive orchid displays echoed elements from some of Broadway's most iconic theaters.  Each of the 300 different types of orchids were stunning.  This is definitely an exhibit not to MIS.  I visit annually and it never disappoints.  
Take a minute to notice the gorgeous blooms outside and appreciate the bursts of color they add to our lives!

DIY Towel Dress!

As soon as I saw the 'Beach Towel Dress' tutorial on MADE I knew exactly which towel I would be using to create my own towel dress! I purchased some elastic thread (it took 2 full spools), threaded my bobbin and got started sewing rows. I used a colorful, thin towel from Old Navy. Pick a towel you love and create the perfect cover-up-dress for summer. Check out the full tutorial at Don't forget to share your creations with me!
