Colour of the Month: Red

February's colour of the month I would say is RED. Since it's Valentine's, the month of Love, I thought red is the most suitable colour as it's most commonly associated with love.
One of my favourite colours also, especially burgundy, red is the colour that symbolizes passion and energy.
Red - One of the primary colours. 

It is the symbolic colour of the heart and the red rose, is closely associated with romantic love or courtly love and Saint Valentine's Day. Both the Greeks and the Hebrews considered red a symbol of love as well as sacrifice.

Red is also the colour of urgency and is used in many danger signs. 

Encourages appetite, red is many time used in advertising and branding, often used by fast food chains.

Christmas Cards

Christmas is just around the corner, and it's time to start planning and preparing for Christmas cards, Christmas gifts, and all that Christmas shopping. Fortunately we can find a lot of these things online, which is a total time-saver, with our busy lives. Here are some of my newest creations for original, unique, handmade, personalized Christmas cards for that special someone in your life.

A classy approach, with traditional Christmas colours, (which I love by the way) these cards are for your special someone, personalized with your own message.

And for those "Frozen" lovers out there, a personalized Frozen Christmas Card - Handmade, with rhinestones. I'm sure every girl will love this card.

Colour of the Month - Purple

Purple - a blend of red and blue.
Thought to resemble royalty, luxury, faith, religion and also magic.

I personally associate the colour purple, with the smell of lavender and Amethyst gemstones (my favourite.)
I don't really wear purple clothes too much, but I do like using it in design. 

In marketing and branding Purple is considered to represent a creative and imaginative brand and is used a lot in beauty products

The Frog

What's the first thing that comes in your mind when you hear the word "Frog"? 
Well for me it's Disney's animated movie "The princess and the frog" and Kermit the Frog! 
Frogs are the most beloved cute animals. I guess it's because they are a bit funny looking. As I totally love them, I use them in my creations. 
If you see below are a few samples of my own creations (Birthday Invitation, Birthday Card, Art Print) with a Frog theme and also two finds I stumbled upon in Etsy which are really sweet. A Crochet Pattern Frog, by YukiYarn Designs in The Netherlands and a Newborn Frog Hat by Knit and Crochet Land in Poland.
