DSC03895What makes our life colorful?


DSC03895Colors of paints and pencils dancing on the page?


DSC03892Ribbons and trims adding texture to our homes?


DSC03892Perhaps the threads, ribbons and embellishments noticed in each detail around us.


DSC03895Or is it the people that surround our life, painting our days with friendship and love?


DSC03895My friend Amisha sent me this hand-painted scarf that she made.


DSC03895I love the colors...


DSC03895and the card and tag that she created for me.


DSC03895Most of all I will cherish this scarf because Amisha made it, and every time I wear it I will think of her.


DSC03895Amisha and I are bloggers, friends, and kindred spirits. Amisha's blog is called Gorgeous and Fun Things, and it is, please stop by and see what she has posted for today. We attend Creativity Boot Camp together and share so many common interests. Thank you Amisha, you have painted my day with beautiful colors reflected in your gorgeous gift and in the gift of friendship.

Beautiful colors and beautiful post. Amisha is a true artist...

I love the song Colors Of The Wind. I remember my children having the Pocahantas movie and we loved to play that song over and over. Thank you.

I have sent you an email, Karen...

Fantastically beautiful scarf! Brilliant in so many ways:>) I think "all of the above" color our lives. People and things that we hold dear and that put a sparkle in our eye.

You are sharing such vibrant colors here, and pretty photos of the colored pencils and the handmade scarf and more.
I see your blog begins with the same first three words of my book's title, a nice coincidence. Or as I say, a Godincidence.
