Out Today

Hey friends. Just running in quick to post so that there's an entry for our stamp-a-day-giveaway. My pile of paperwork has come alive and threaten to demolish the apartment and also I've been feeling quite under the weather all of a sudden. I think it has something to do with Colorado's ever changing weather. But don't forget Farmer's Market is tomorrow! And it will be relocated to the new store. I will give it it's own category and the items will be listed there. I will also link it from here.


Yesterday's ASADG winner is:

Email me with your stamp choice and address to claim your prize!


Oh and I found this in the gallery!!! So cute I had to share!


By Mariska

Today's question is: If a color was named after you, what would it be?

Mine would be Marie-licious Magenta. Lol.

Lindsay said...

if a color was to be names after me it would be called big red! lol
my name is lindsay but my dad would call me big red for a lot of years, but....he also called the dog big red too since she has similar coloring it me (she is a chow chow) anyways i always complained i didnt like being called the same thing as the dog lol but i am a redhead with freckles and Big Red would probably be teh perfect color to be named after me

Nunt said...

Oh my gosh, animated paper stacks - scary! If you threaten them with a paper shredder, maybe they'll settle down?

As for color, well, my first name "Sanna" doesn't really make anything sound good, so I'll refrain from slapping some nice color with it.

YALALO
(I have a really long first name but everyone calls me Lalo)

I can't think of anything clever for a color name. The best I can come up with is Nebulous Nina Green, but what kind of color is that? Foggy green? I like celadon and chartreuse shades the best but Nina does not fit in anywhere.
