I admit it. I'm not even a closet fan. I love Neil Diamond.
He sort of sums up my childhood in so many ways. If I close my eyes, I can see my mother, dancing, smiling and singing along while doing the dishes, folding laundry or cooking - to Neil Diamond on the record player.
There's so much love and happiness attached to his voice, for me.
...and I love me some blues.
Not necessarily the music, but the colour. I'm a huge fan of blues, greens and browns. I am drawn to the earthier tones of colours, even if I do appreciate the striking happiness that a bold yellow or a bright pink radiates - I'm always going back to my soft calming earth tones.
That's why I was happy when my guest designer kit for Magdas contained a lot of "my colours". Browns, dusky turquoises and greens. Browns, creme white and shabby reds - and then there was the pretty brown of the corrugated cardboard from the actual packaging, that went so well with the papers - I just had to tear it up and use that too...
It's always so much fun to use things someone else picks out, and I like to try and make different stuff with it. That's why I made two summerLOs and one very wintery one, using the same kit. I'm gonna start by showing a sumemry one - just because I am a bit tired of the snow.
Thank you, Magdas, for trusting me with one of your guestDT spots. :)
