March 2017 Pretty Palettes inspiration image

Happy March, Pretty Palette pals! It’s time for the wild weather of March. Here in the midwest, March is filled with wind, rain, sparkling sunshine, and the occasional snow shower. The best part of spring in the midwest is flowers. Whether they’re wildflowers like spring beauties,  Dutchman’s breeches, and Jacob’s ladder, or cultivated beauties like daffodils and grape hyacinths, spring flowers bring joy and color to our world. One of my favorite flowers is the tulip. I love all the colors and the shapes this humble bulb is able to produce!


March 2017 Pretty Palette made at coolors.co.

This month’s Pretty Palette is based on the above photo taken in my front yard last spring. These orange tulips nearly glow against my gray house!

Each month I choose beads to go along with the month’s Pretty Palette so that you can play along, too! All you need to do is:

  • Choose your favorite coordinating beads from the big wall o’ beads. If you already have beads or art beads in your stash that coordinate, feel free to use them. Have fun!
  • Make a project with your beads and post it on your blog, Instagram, Facebook, or Pinterest.
  • Visit the blog on the final Wednesday of March (the 29th, this year) and post a link to your pieces.

      Thank you, Alison! I’m glad you like the links. I figure every little bit helps to keep things simple and fun. I’m really looking forward to working with those big salmon-colored rounds. I love their texture and that delicate hue of orange!
