neon pink crush

neon pink / ann kelle

I’ve got a little crush on neon pink these days. But, I’m a little hesitant to make a big commitment to this ultra bright hue (i.e. neon pink sofa).  So for right now, I’ve only incorporated neon pink into my life in subtle non-expensive ways, like stickers or earrings. These things will tie me over while I decide if I want to get a neon sofa.

my best color friend . . .

May 22, 2012

i heart pink

Just in case you were wondering, I’m still all about pink. Pink is my best color friend. I hang out, I mean “design”, with pink the most. I like to surround myself with pink things. I gravitate towards pink. For example, I’m at the store picking up something for dinner and I see pink polka dotted tape. Coincidence? No way! More like destiny. Yep, pink is definitely my best color friend. What’s your best color friend?

still lovin’ pink

January 30, 2012

My Mommy is so thoughtful. She bookmarks things out of her magazines to share with me when we see each other. She doesn’t really like pink, but knows her daughter well. (Come to think of it, I don’t think she has any pink in her closet or house, which is criminal really.) Anyhow. She gave me her Good Housekeeping magazine which had an article on pink. The only room in my home that has pink is my studio. But, I’ve decided to add speckles of pink in my bedroom as well.  Lots of inspiration in this magazine.

my $20 shoes

June 28, 2011

Here’s how to make $20 shoes in less than 5 minutes. To start out, buy a pair of inexpensive shoes or use an old pair. I saw these shoes but thought they looked kinda childish . . . okay, okay, this might be because they ARE kid’s shoes. Anyhow. They were pink. For your pendant, use an old pair of big earrings or buy a cheap pair.

1. Take off any adorning pendants
2. Put the ear clip on your shoe to get an idea of where the pendant will be. Mark the place where to glue the pendant.
3. Glue the pendants to the ear clips. I used super glue, but a hot glue gun might work.
4. Allow time to dry.
5. Do a happy dance in your new shoes

color crush . . .

April 11, 2011

I have a crush on the colors pink and yellow. The other day I woke up with these two colors on my mind. (I’m thinking about adding these colors to my all white bedroom.) Later in the day I went to Borders to peek around at their closing sale. When I left the store, I looked in my bag and noticed that almost everything was pink and yellow. It’s funny how the mind works. What two colors do you have a crush on?

pink is so 2011

February 21, 2011

For all you pink lovers, you must go get the March issue of House Beautiful. It’s all about the color pink, which happens to be the color of 2011. Somebody pinch me. Did you know they make pink light bulbs?

my favorite color

December 06, 2010

A couple of months ago, my nine year old cousin, Allie, asked me what my favorite color was. “Hmm. I don’t know” I said. Well, I’ve been thinking about this question for 2 months now.  There is one color that I love: pink. If you look around my house, you won’t see any pink decor. I hardly wear clothes that are pink. It’s only when you look in my drawers, cupboards, etc. that you discover I have A LOT of pink stuff. In fact, I’ve been known to squeal in stores after finding “pink” items. (Don’t you think a vintage pink filing cabinet is worth a scream?) I try to sneak pink into all of my designs . . . they just don’t feel right without pink. But, I still don’t know if it’s my favorite color. I like all colors. Pink just makes me the happiest.

i am thankful

November 23, 2010

Some of the things I’m thankful for . . .
1. Christmas music will be played everywhere the day following Thanksgiving.
2. God
3. Going home to spend time with my family. Laughter and lots of food are awaiting me.
4. Wii Sports. To help burn off all those Thanksgiving calories. I recently got to the PRO status in boxing. And although, running is my #1 sport, Wii boxing is becoming a close second. (That’s me in the picture boxing.)
5. One of the stands at the Farmer’s Market gives me free vegetables.
6. The best cupcake bakery in the WORLD is around the corner . . .  just in case I don’t want to bake anything for Thanksgiving.
7. Watching Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving (I’ve already watched it once)
8. Starbuck’s Caramel Macchiato with Soy Milk . . . so yummy.
9. Meeting wonderful fabric friends through the giveaways.
10. The color pink

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! See you on Monday.

my pink tools

October 19, 2010

I had a trillion reward points from my gym that were about to expire. While looking through their catalog I decided I should get something that is: 1. practical 2. something I would never buy myself (i.e. something boring). So, I decided that with my upcoming move, a tool set would be a good choice. After all, I would NEVER buy myself tools. Looking through the options, I saw all kinds of colors.  Gray, black, navy . . . pink? Pink tools? [insert scream] I couldn’t believe they had a pink tool set. Of course, this was my selection and my 135 piece pink tool set makes me oh, so happy.
