Lets bring the Sketchbook Project to Grand Rapids! Wouldn't that be great, to have our city as a stop on the tour?

Okay, that's not true at all, I just made this necklace this morning, but wouldn't you agree that it has a beautiful, inherited feel to it?

You know what I really like?
I like putting on a nice outfit and having lots of different jewelry to choose from and accessorize with. You know what I do NOT like? Fishing necklaces out from behind the counter with a wire hanger while cussing under my breath, or sifting through the vacuum canister for an earring five minutes before I need to be somewhere. To prevent these moments, here's what I came up with: a place to keep everything.

When I was in college, I made photo frame trays to give as gifts all the time. I hunted thrift stores for a picture frame, painted it a fun color, and attached drawer pulls for handles. In the face of the tray, where a picture would normally go, I added a graphic (usually something loud and colorful that I designed and printed at school).

Last week, I had one of the coolest experiences ever! That's me on EightWest, a West Michigan talk show telling people about the things I make and post here on Shades of Tangerine.

Outdoor wedding receptions are magical. Music and laughter are carried by the breeze. No matter the location, its always a breath taking, beautiful event. The secret is lighting.

This woodland centerpiece would be perfect for an enchanted story book wedding reception. When I think of fairy tales, I imagine Hansel and Gretel in the woods or Snow White singing to her forest animal friends.

I said my vows a few years ago, (and believe me, I am happy to never do it again) but sharing a friend's big day, and seeing all over her wonderful ideas usually leaves me thinking, "Why didn't I think of doing that for my wedding?"

Recently, I've been noticing a lot of flower crowns in fashion photography. They look so pretty and summery, but is this an every day accessories or just a high fashion thing that no one would really wear in real life? I decided that I was going to make one and wear it in public.
