Hey there, friends, Happy Friday! Jump on in to explore this week’s round-up of visual stimulation...
Good Vibe #1
We’re totally getting in on this coloring craze. What?! It’s more than a crazy? It’s a lifestyle!!! Trying to encourage all of us to work a little bit of colorful relaxation into each day is the goal of Kathy Racoosin, founder of the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge, and a real hero of ours! Why, Marcella has even colored TWO NIGHTS IN A ROW. Leaning over the arm of the sofa to try to see by not-so-great lamplight, and having the time of her life! (Above, Marcy watercolored the clear stamp set Natural Beauties). Get in on the fun, just click here for all the details. It’s free, and it makes you feel good on many levels!

Our dear Bloomie Christine Okken wrote the most beautiful post about her Word of the Year, and we thought you’d enjoy reading all about it, and seeing how Christine is displaying it for maximum reassurance. How inspiring: the Scripture, the post, and the woman who shared it with us on Instagram (Follow her @christinecreations17).

We are loving the response to our Power & Spark Challenge this month, Grab a Map! Our designers are collaborating with Becky Fleck’s PageMaps.com to create a card layout based on one of Becky’s TEN awesome card layouts for January. We love how our customer Nana Donna was inspired by one of the vertical layouts to create this SUPER-CUTE birthday card with our Pansies digital stamp set!! Look at those jewel-tones!! (Where did she get such a rich and wonderful palette, you ask? Why, from our Hues to Use of course.) Go check out the sketches and enter your card in our challenge for a chance to win $50 to spend at Power Poppy.
And now for the link list you’ve been waiting for all week...
Come see what’s been brewing on the craft table’s of our design team, the Bloomies!
We hope you have a totally spectacular Friday!! Embrace every moment you get, and hey, while you’re at it... go schedule that mammogram! xoxoxo
