Best in the Urban Barn Chairity Contest!


Yippee, I won!! Thanks so much to all of you who voted for my chair in the past 2 weeks! And if you live in Canada, it’s being auctioned at ebay with the proceeds going to my favourite charity, World Vision. I sponsor 2 boys with them.


In other news, I am coming to Toronto, June 6, 7 & 8th (my birthday is on the 7th) to hold a True Colour Expert Workshop. Vancouver’s workshop is coming up next week, March 21, 22 and 23. Exact location TBA but it will be in the Greater Toronto Area.

This room would look great with my chair! source

Julia bought my ebook the other day and I just received this note from her:

Hi Maria,
Just came back from a color consult.  When Gina told me her granite was brown and black I had a sneaking suspicion that it would be ‘pinky’.  So, I prepared myself ahead and first tried Bradstreet Beige which I fortunately had a nice 3″x5″ chip of.  It was spot on!!  Truth is, I really couldn’t see the pinky beige in (the chip) beforehand but I took your word for it.   As soon as I placed the chip next to the countertop the pink undertone popped out!
We went out and bought a gallon since we were both so sure that it was right and she is now happily painting her kitchen. (and I had a sigh of relief:)
Love your ebook!

Yaay for understanding undertones! Get more confidence with my ebook and arrive home ready to raise your rates after one of my True Colour Expert workshops!
