Summer Color Inspiration Challenge Update!

---> Click here for "Bead Hoarders Blog Hop" Reveal!

First of all, welcome to our new followers!   We've gained a few recently, so it seems a good time to stop and say that I'm grateful for all 149 of you!   Please join in, ask questions, and share!  

Now back to some previous business... when I wrote the blog post with the flower photographs and using the colors as inspiration, I encouraged you to take a “mini-challenge” with me and I’d post your photos on my blog.  I was thinking I might get a couple of takers, but I’m happy to see that quite a few of you responded! Now I’m thinking this will be better arranged as a small blog hop.  I hope you’ll agree.

I didn’t ask for enough information to be entirely clear as to whether you were voicing your favorite color combinations or intending to contribute a photo of one of your designs last time, so I’m going to take as step back (as I often do) and ask for more info! 

Sorting Things out:

I’ve made a list of those who responded, that I thought might be wanting to participate. It appears below. Please take a look.

  • If you would like to participate, please send me the following information if it is not included: your name, your blog name, and your blog URL.
  • (If you do not have a blog  and wish to participate, please let me know. I’m still happy to host your entry on my blog page!)
  • If I have you listed, but you do not wish to participate in the challenge, please let me know that.  My apologies!   (Also, if you do not send the other information, you will be deleted from the list of participant list.)
