Here Comes " Not So Mellow Yellow"

"Not So Mellow Yellow" is my new hand felted tunic. She was made with soft merino wool, hand dyed yellow silk, black silk, black and white silk charmeuse in a graphic print, black tulle, bamboo top, various beads, wool nepps and black firestar.  I think she's a little bold, vibrant, messy, fun, and maybe even a bit whacky. A lot like me, I guess!

Got the Winter Blues? How Color Can Change Your Mood

Got the winter blues ?  Add some color and instantly alter your mood. Of course color is personal and  often the way you feel about it is based on your own experiences, but studies show that certain colors do effect many of us in the same way.  For example, yellow is thought to stimulate the nerves and purify the body.  It is associated with the intellect and is thought to be uplifting. Need a little pick me up?  Try adding some yellow to your wardrobe.

Orange is thought to encourage joy, socializing and optimism. Orange can surely chase away those winter blues. Need a little push to get out of the house?  Try adding some orange to your wardrobe.
