Plaid Launches New Trend Colors!

Plaid Launches New Trend Colors!

Plaid launched four new trend color collections this year: Charleston Charm, Urban Restoration, Royal Tapestry, and Coastal Mist. I was honored to be chosen to create the projects for these new palettes that were featured in the Plaid booth at CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) this past January.

I put together instructions for a few of the projects and Plaid has done a great job of making them available to you on their website. When you click on the links for each collection, you will then see individual projects and instructions you can click on.

For the projects that weren't featured on the website, I will try to provide some additional pictures in upcoming blogs so you can see everything!

It was a lot of fun doing these "crafty" projects (getting away from the decorative painting a bit for a change) and I really enjoyed it!

One of the things I did when I got the assignment was head to Hobby Lobby. They were having a 50% off sale on their home decor items and I snatched things up that I thought would be conducive to color altering. It was so easy to take something that was really inexpensive, change the colors and make it match Plaid's palettes. I'm telling you this because with very little effort, you can alter something you may love or find on sale that doesn't quite match your home! Just add some paint and presto! You have something that is perfect for your decor!

I hope you can find some inspiration! It all had to be done in about 4 weeks from the shopping to the shipping, so I have to give a shout out to my peeps, Mom Dorothy and sister Joan, because I couldn't have done it without them! Thanks guys!

I have also posted some pics on my friend page on Facebook. I'm not sure if you are on Facebook, but if not, it is a great source for staying in touch with the crafting world and today's trends. My fan page on Facebook is here and I try to post frequently there as well. The friend page just has everything, but the fan page is devoted to crafty stuff!

Well, I guess that's it for now, love you guys! Email me if you have any questions!
