Play Schedule

blush.palette

Next on my list of what I am looking forward to this year, is a personal project. Well as personal as sharing ideas with thousands of pals could be. If you're reading this blog, you know I have a blog. Right. You may not know that I have a mailing list as well. I do. Now you know at least two things about me. Also, I've mentioned this before I think, but in general my mailing list is to let folks know about sales, new releases, more business-y. The blog, as you know, is.... uhhh, I don't know, but not especially business-y. But even with the few number of mailing mailers that I send out, I am always like, oohhhh, I don't want to bother anyone, is 5 times a year to many mailings....ohhh I don't know....

Anyhooers, I've decided to be a little more regularlike with my emailings and hopefully make them more inspirational and fun too. Today I sent my mailing list a fun "palette play" layout where I have chosen some beautiful Behr paint shades to go with my Innocent Crush fabrics and new rugs & pillows (you know this already if you're on the list and checked your email 5 minutes ago). Here are the layouts I sent out today. I soooo enjoyed putting this together. Is this fun? I think this is fun.

Point being, this year, I'll be doing this monthly (because I have Pierrette to remind me). It won't always be paint colors. But it might be playing with pattern, print, sewing, patchwork, interiors, tips, etc., in a way that is focused and hopefully informative. I know that this stuff sometimes pops up on the blog a'course, in a behind the scenes sorta way, but I am excited about the idea of doing it every month in a way that sort of follows along what I'm dabbling around with. And in a way that sort of connects the dots of what inspires how I design everything, etc. So. If ya wanna play, you can sign up on the mailing list by clicking here.

In other news, Roman pointed his foot up to my face today and said "Kiss it, mommy."

I really can't think of what to follow that with so, just....

have a good weekend!
xo, Anna

  1. don't know how i missed these emails before, but I'm signed up now! when my son gets boo boos (even fake ones), he has you kiss not only the injured foot but also the uninjured one. lucky for him he is still a babe and his feet are cute. i will not be doing this when he is 16, though i doubt he will ask then!

    LOVE THIS!! We didn't find out the gender of our baby and so everything is cream and green. Lucky for me, and your fabric sales, I had a darling baby girl who will grow to love AMH colors and patterns because I'm trying to fit them in....everywhere I have time for! This is just... splendid! Gotta start planning for a new rug and paint this summer! :-)

    Love the rugs! Perhaps you'd like to know about a typo? "Rhythmic" in the second pic (the dream palette) is missing an "h". MWA!

    Your timing is excellent, as I just finished a king size quilt top using Innocent Crush prints for my bedroom. I was having a hard time deciding what color would look good on the walls, so this definitely points me in the right direction!!

  9. The rugs are gorgeous! My mind is whirling trying to come up with reasons why I must have one.

    A big hug and thanks to Pierrette for all she does behind the scenes. And of course it goes without saying, the same goes out to you.
