Where have I been?

bouquetsnw has had over 500 hits in the past few months
and probably thinking what happened to this blog?

There has not been any coloring and I miss viewing the flowers and gardens!

Where has Elaine been?

Yes, I have been at the Oregon State Fair!

Many of you know that I have a passion for Wine Tasting
and for many years I was the director for the
 Wine Competitions at the Oregon State Fair.
Both Professional and Amateur!

Now, I have been asked back to lead different department
or should I say departments!

Creative Living, STEM + Art = STEAM and Oregon Counties!

What fun I am having...and quite the challenge!

I must confess there is one section of Creative Living I am really enjoying!
Yes, Paper Arts!

Our competition for cards, quilling, scrapbooking and paper art projects.

If you live in Oregon and would like to enter your craft at the State Fair
please view the website

The information will be live in a few weeks!

Also, the Competition Chair Volunteer position is still open
if any of you Paper Crafters would like to have some
Crazy Fun at the Oregon State Fair please leave a comment.

In between planning for the Oregon State Fair I have taken a
few minutes viewing my favorite blogs and found this Copic Color Hex Chart.

This Copic Color Hex Chart can be found on Sally Allnock blog:

I am working on coloring the hex's and 
it is a great tool to re-introduce me back to coloring!

The feelings I had last night while I was coloring 
felt exactly like my One Little Word for 2015!


Calming, soothing and relaxing!

Over the next few weeks I will post 
the last three florals for my Top Ten List!

Can't wait to spend my early mornings in the Craft Coloring Loft!
