Waterlily stamps featured on Jeopardy!

1 10 2015

Thanks to the eagle eyes of my friend Barbara Kelley for catching this screen grab on Jeopardy (Sept. 21). I also got an email from Mark Saunders (USPS PR guy) alerting me to this fun thing!

Answer: What are water lilies?

Another fun thing—the ferns were featured in Jeopardy last year! How cool is that?

Let’s Chip It!

27 10 2012

Thanks to fellow Pinterest-user, Vanessa Lam, I learned about Sherwin-Williams new color-palette-generator at http://www.letschipit.com. I can see that this new toy is going to be a huge waste of time huge benefit to my design, craft and photography projects. I love collecting color palettes to reference on my Pinterest boards, but now I can create my very own. Here’s my very first palette using a photo I shot at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens a few years ago. Way too much fun to use!
