O Is For Orange

Since I was such a Debby Downer last week, I am cheering things up this week.
I love my oven. I use it almost every day.
In fact, just this morning I made a carrot cake.
Which brings me to my post for today.
I love color. The brighter the better. I have light lime green walls for Pete's sake.... but my favorite color in the whole wide world is orange.
I know you have heard me say blue is my favorite, and it is, but my all-time fave is bigger than just a fave. I know you feel me... besides, how can a person love just one color? That is a ridiculous notion.
Just look at this color, and tell me it doesn't make you smile.
From a light shade like a pumpkin, to a dark shade that is almost a red, it is a vibrant and happy color.

So tell me folks, what is one color, yeah just one, that automatically does it for you? What's your all-time fave??

  2. I get your love of all things orange...as I have the same passion for purple - red purple, blue purple, violet, indigo and everything inbetween :-)
    On my debbie downer days I wear my purple top or my purple dress - works every time!
    Glad to see you found your mojo again this week :-)

  5. I have to say I love orange and all its hues. Peach is my ultimate favorite. But I love carrot cake, too!

  6. I'd have to say purple, especially a rich, deep purple.

  7. Sorry, but it's not orange. I always like any shade of blue, but right now I'm thinking of painting my kitchen green. I like it, but I'm wondering if I'll regret it down the road.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void.
