Blogging Advice

Material Girls and Colour me Happy come full Circle!

Material Girls Blog was the very first blog I stumbled across when I was looking for fabric sites on-line one year ago.  It was the one that started my blog obsession and yesterday Emily Johnson (one of their many talented designer contributors)  wrote an article about my blog!

She called it “Advice From a True Expert” and I had to include an excerpt here, it was so great what she said:

“I’m sure you all know by now how much time I spend with my mom- and 99.9% of that time we spend together, we end up gabbing about design. Ever since I started Material Girls, she has gotten really into design blogs. She will often call me up and tell me about a new one she discovered. Her latest blog obsession is “the color lady”. She has been talking about the color lady for weeks. “Emily, this lady gives THE best paint advice! Haven’t you ever heard of her? Colour me Pretty? Wait, I think it’s Colour me Ecstatic? No, that’s not it…” Great description mom! I’ll be sure to google “colour me something”.  Emily Johnson Click here for the full article.

I love their colourful header!  And so many of you have such great ones as well.  I’ll be getting my own colourful ‘Colour me Happy’ blog header very soon, so stay tuned. . .
