Friday Favorites: How About Orange

This week I was trying to decide who to feature here then I looked at my favorites page. I have tons of favorites but only a few that I check absolutely everyday, and one of those is How About Orange. Jessica updates her page Monday through Friday with an awesome assortment of DIY, graphic design, cool products and resources for the artist and crafter in all of us.  As the title suggests, she has a tendency to feature products and projects in orange and for those of you who know me well, I’m totally down with this!

Jessica is also a fabric and ribbon designer. I adore her bold patterns and bright colors. I especially love that she gets her Mom to stitch up items using her fabrics – so cute!

There are so many things about her web site that I love.  The tutorials are clear, simple, well written and beautifully photographed.  The free downloads includes tons of fabulous printable art for every occasion.  I return to her list of resources frequently for free clip art and fonts.  All around, this is a great site.  Grab a cup of tea and spend some time perusing the categories.  I know I’m going to try my hand at some paperclip jewelry!

When I find fabulous artists I never wish that I could draw/stitch/create like them.  I’m always just glad to have found them and know that their art is there for me to come back to time and again.  I’ve decided to start featuring some of my favorites every Friday so that you can enjoy them too.
