When I asked my 7 year old what these colors made him think of he said mountain wildflowers and I would have to agree. As soon as he said it I pictured a beautiful wildflower meadow with pointed, snow capped mountains in the distance.
I’m in the middle of stitching my tropical elegance piece. Will I have it ready to share by Wednesday? Did you make something? I would love to see it! Feel free to jump in at any time with any of the palettes.
What can you create with these colors? Do you have beads, pastels, icing, colored pencils, or embroidery thread like me? Pick your favorite medium and create a work of art this week using these colors. Then share it with us in my flickr group.

So your grads are moving on to bigger and better things, whether that’s college or “real life” I don’t know. What I do know is cute home/dorm decor that won’t wreck the walls is hard to come by. Your grad doesn’t want to be stuck with posters. Besides, I bet they would love a reminder of their alma mater don’t you?
Embroidery hoops are super lightweight (you can use command strips, yay!) and super colorful when placed into groups on the wall.
This graduation hoop is using Davidson College colors. Yours will be totally customized by you. The colors can be pulled from the school website and the personalized info filled out to make a completely unique hoop for your new graduate!
I love the idea of showing off your grad’s school colors along with their graduation info like class year, school name, and even a state outline!
If you’re just looking for an initial, I added the sweet looking embellished initial to the shop this week. The flower adds the perfect amount of extra color!
You can also choose the initial only hoop shown at the top.
Any of these hoops would be a perfect gift for your new grad!

Bermuda was the destination chosen by my brother and sister-in-law for their wedding. What an amazing time we all had cruising over, enjoying the wedding festivities, and relaxing on the ship. Our oldest, who was two at the time, was the ring bearer and he wore a little white tux with shiny white shoes. Totally adorable!
I’m a mom, you didn’t expect to get away without a shot of that cutie, right?
This photo of one of the moongates was the inspiration for this palette. The water in Bermuda was just gorgeous and these moongates are for couples to walk through and make a wish! A fun little romantic addition to the island.
I’m going to make another embroidery piece. I just finished my creation for sunshiny day and I’m excited to share it with you on Wednesday! Did you make something? I would love to see it!
