Why I will continue on with the collection

This video says it all.


Stop and smell the roses

Purple Girl 1 Gift Guide

Purple Girl 1 is one of the first pieces from The True Colors Collection. The subject is my niece who is now a teen. I started the collection for her, that she would always have positive images of who she is, a beautiful biracial child of God. March 2013 marked the 6th Anniversary of The True Colors and Purple Girl 1 was featured in the monthly blog. Here a few products from Purple Girl 1 Gift Guide you can find on Etsy and Zazzle Shop.

Framing Notecard

Beautiful note cards can be framed pieces of art.

I took the Yellow Girl 1 notecard from The True Colors Collection Etsy Shop and put it in a frame from Charming Charlies. If you've ever been to Charming Charlies then you understand the beauty of color coordination.

Crayola Fun
