Pink + Red = Beautiful!

I absolutely love a pink/red combination. Did you know that you can't buy pink and red bakers twine? I'd bought a mixed bunch of bakers twine by Martha Stewart a year or so ago and one of the colors was pink and red. I used it all up almost immediately and I've never found another source. I ordered red and white twine and it came yesterday so today I dyed a bunch of it pink and then I hung it to dry. It came out beautiful. I dyed extra to sell at my workshops if you'd like some too.

This was our last week of summer and I took W-F off of work to spend it with the family. What didn't we do? We slept in {until 10!}, went to the beach, ate outside, went out for fondue, spent time at the park and got some movies in. Tomorrow afternoon we're heading to SF to visit either a museum or the aquarium and then we plan to have dinner at the pier. On the way we're making a fast stop at Addison End Papers so I can run in and check out their studio sale. I've never been to one and I'm so excited. I've got to conserve a bit though because the Niles flea market is Sunday and that is one good flea!

In between all of that good stuff I've been doing small 15 minute or so projects, nothing big but it's been enough to satisfy my art cravings.

I hope you're enjoying the end of summer. To quote one of my favorite singers {Van Morrison}, "These are the days".

This is exactly why I am such a hoarder with my supplies....always afraid I won't get it again! But your so clever...dying it! Great idea!
