Although I’ve been back from Yellowstone National Park for a month, I’ve just started to scratch the surface of all the picture I took! I’m hoping to get a lot of inspiration for new color combinations, both for my scarves as well as my quilts. Here’s the 1st palette from Yellowstone, created from a picture I took of what was the most spectacular blue pool, called Sapphire pool, located in the  Biscuit Basin.

Amy, from the blog Things We Make, has a series called “Inspired Image”, where she asks an artist some questions about, wait for it… an inspiring image! 😉 Any old who, this picture & my response can be found over there! Amy created this blog as “a place for artists, artisans and crafters to show off their work and share what inspires their creativity”. It’s a wonderful site to spend some time. Thanks Amy!

Font Advice Welcome!

If you’ve been reading along with me this summer, you know I’m working on a new website. I’ve been trying things out, and I think I’m close to a new look. I love to use a somewhat fancy font for the large type info (business name), and then a simpler font for the nitty gritty info, that’s usually in smaller print (tagline, etc…). I’ve been using Harrington for the fancy font since I started this little venture. I love all its curliques, but it feels just a bit too formal for me:

What I’ve been looking for is a font that gives a feel of something being done by hand. This new font, Saginaw, has more of that feeling.

(This is my new business card I’m working on, but once I decide on a font scheme, it’ll be used consistently across all my print stuff.) (This is where my Spoonflower prints came from too…)

Anyway, I’d like your input. My husband likes the legibility of Harrington better than Saginaw, so I doubt myself!

Does Saginaw come across with the feel of what Candied Fabrics is? Can you read it? Do you love the old Harrington…or should I keep looking for something else?
