Teal Blue Opal

I played with Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Pure Opal again. This time I reached for a lot of teal and blue to compliment it. I used a bunch of Inglot shades that I will have swatched for you sometime soon. […]

Favorite Childhood Stories and Faerie Tales

I was thinking the other night about my favorite childhood stories. I think my favorite story that my Dad told me as a child was Little Red Riding Hood. Though, twisted as I am, I couldn’t help but feel sorry for the wolf! This may explain why I love supernatural fiction that includes werewolves and vampires. I was very excited when the movie Red Riding Hood came out, since it was a twisted version of my favorite story. (Credit: IMDB) […]
