The past week has been a wonderful whirlwind visit to Paris, London and finishing up in Scotland with my best friend's wedding. The adventure is not quite over yet as I'm in NYC for a few days for the National Stationery Show catching up with design/paper friends and some other client meetings. Here's hoping I keep it all together! (below: Bags print from James Brown available at Keep Calm Gallery)

True Colors

Thanks to one of my favorite reads, How About Orange, according to the True Value Color Quiz, black is the color that matches my personality. . .haha, but unlike Jessica, I was not surprised by the result.

Nothing can stand between you and your demand for a calm environment. To be free of conflict and disagreement is the only way to live. In fact, it’s this philosophy that probably allows you to be comfortable in conditions that would normally bother others. Your ability to focus is undisputed, and while you enjoy attention, you still have problems understanding how to handle it. No other color out lives by the golden rule as much as you do.
