Pretty Palettes :: February

I am never traditional in my approach to Valentine’s Day. I like my hearts a bit more grungy and broken rather than bright and sequined. But I am attending a wedding for a dear girl on Friday, February 14th, and I plan to wear my bright red dress that I bought a few years ago for my 25th class reunion. It is a knockout and I never get the chance to wear it.

Not me, but I do look pretty good in this dress, if I do say so!

So, of course, I need something to accessorize this outfit, and these colors will be perfect!

Color palette inspiration from Sarah Hearts blog http://sarahhearts.com/2013-02-06/red-pink-beige/


I am always looking for lovely photo palettes, and this week I stumbled across a sweet new blog called Sarah Hearts. Sarah is a graphic designer and lover of DIY, and when I saw her adorably styled color palettes I knew that I wanted to see if I could feature them. She agreed that we could use them for our inspiration, provided that in doing so we link back to her site and her post (which you can find in the caption).

Here are the beads I found to coordinate with this palette:

Feeling inspired? Looking to chase those winter blues away and get jazzed up by reds and pinks? Join me!

To participate, you need to go to your local Michaels (or JoAnn’s or Hancock Fabrics or AC Moore) and buy some beads from the Halcraft line (that would be Bead Gallery at Michaels or Bliss Beads at JoAnn’s) in these colors and make something with them! They do not need to be the beads that I am using. There are loads of options! Let’s see what you can find!

Come back on February 26th for the reveal of this month’s Pretty Palette jewels and an InLinkz blog sharing party.
