A Rainbow Palette

My siblings got me something really special for my 30th birthday in October, a gorgeous blue designer wallet, you know the kind you see on the red carpet. I’ve noticed since then that I am drawn to blue, a lot. I noticed at my first market stall that most of the items I had for sale had either blue or blue-green tones. I realised that not everyone has the same favourite colours so one of my many challenges for 2012 is to create things in all colours, even those I may not love (like gold and orange). Here’s a link to the gorgeous wallet – in gold. (Because the Jay blue has sold out). House of Baulch — OYO WALLET.

First Market Stall at Beat N Bites in Wollongong's Osborne Park

I am trying to source supplies in all colours to support the rainbow palette I want to draw on for the future Mountain Moon And Sea range. I say source because I really do want to focus on more ethically produced products. This is what is in my heart and if I’m not following my heart then my creativity dries up and there is nothing there for me, or for you.

I always feel something special when I see a rainbow in the sky, but a double rainbow is doubly special! May it bring us all good luck for the rest of the year!
