New Look - New Attitude

So, it appears that this blog is going to be a lot like me - random. Yesterday we talked about wildlife, today it's color. So it goes. :)
As you probably know, my one real hobby is scrapbooking. So, I guess I tend to think about color more than my nonscrapping friends and family. But, I was reminded this week about the emotion of color. I remember when I first started in this hobby reading an article or two on the subject. And at the time I spent MUCH more time considering that when choosing colors. Now I tend to just go where the spirit takes me. Then I painted my living room - and have found that this simple change makes me happier and energized. Even when I was making these color chips for the post, the old color scheme made me feel blah, and the new one made me feel up. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that I plan to (or think anyone should) spend a bunch of time agonizing over the colors in scrapbook layouts. That would take the joy out of it - the page will be great either way for the most part. I just thought my trip down the paint aisle has been an interesting reminder - and maybe sometimes if I'm going for a certain emotion in the page I should try to pay a bit more attention.
Oh, and I might just take some pics of the new room and post them later. :)


  1. Ohh Janelle, love the new warm colours! I would love to see a photo of your finished room. Great header BTW, I still have to go back and look at past classes and figure that one out. Looks great!

  2. Welcome to the world of blogging! It's a WONDERFUL thing! : )
