Paint Swatches

It started with Laura. She said a shirt she got at the work holiday party was Carolina Blue. I asked her what color that was, and asked if it was the color blue of the "bright lights" indicator in the car. She agreed. Apparently it's a real color. It refers to the color blue that represents the color of the University of North Carolina. But this brought up a new thing- naming colors after places.



It brought up this idea that I love, naming colors myself. like Scandinavian Gray is THIS:

The bigger beads in this Bracelet

I am going to start naming colors. Bangladesh Brown, Madagascar Magenta and so on --- sort of like SWATCHES!




Last Christmas I used green paint swatches on my greeting cards to make teeny Christmas trees (so anyone that went into Wal-Mart to get green swatches--- sorry!). I have found a few other craft ideas using swatches:


Wreath Link
I think would like to cut them in the fun shapes, but it's cute.




Valentines Day Swatches

Mosaic

The only thing I am liking better than swatches right now are PAINT LIDS!!! They are so cool and crafty--- where can I get them? Where O WHERE?! Lookie!!!
