New! Website Page for Free Stuff

I just created a page on the website that is the place to find lots of free stuff. All through the past 2 years and really probably the whole 16 years I’ve been in business, I’ve written and recorded lots of educational content. I have printables and links to the videos of tips of the week. There are book guides too.

And of course, my podcast is free and can be found here on the website OR you can subscribe on iTunes or Spotify.

I also have videos of the tips of the day and podcasts and other learning opportunities on YouTube here or on Vimeo.

I’ll be added more and more to this page weekly. So bookmark the page and come back often to see what’s new!!

TOTW: Up Your Color IQ

I hear crafters talking all the time about having a hard time picking colors for projects. Especially those large multiskein projects with requirements for spreckles and gradients and variegated colors. As usual I’m here to help. At a festival or during our month open studio, I’ll help you pick colors that will make that project really shine. But when you are on your own, I have some suggestions as well.

First of all watch this video. I talk about a sure fire way to up your color IQ. My answer to use Pinterest. Make a color inspiration board and start pinning photos that really excite you. Photos that you love. DO NOT pin yarn. Nope. Pin photos of landscapres or animals or flowers or closeups. Pin 4-6 photos a day for a week or two. This will help you to define your color style.

And if you are interested in learning more about color, listen to my podcasts from Season 2 Episodes 6-9. You can find links here.
