Hello Cutie Blog

Hey Fans!! So I wanted to tell you something that I have been super excited about and wasn't able to tell anyone until the big reveal. Well the reveal was made but I was dealing with sick little ones so now I am about to tell you what the excitement is all about!!

So my friend Lizzie from "Oh Snap" contacted me a few weeks ago about a blog challenged and asked for me to be a DT!! I was super honored and of course I said YES!! How could I not? I knew that she would challenge me and I would be set outside my norm bubble. Well I will say that I was challenge and I was very much happy about it!!

The Hello Cutie Challenges will feature TWO awesome challenges a month. There will be a color challenge and a Photo inspiration challenge. Now how fun does that sound? The challenges can be ANYTHING that YOU MAKE! So if its sewing, baking, scrapbooking, cardmaking crochet.....anything that you make will do as long as it goes with the challenge. These challenges will be available on the FIRST and THIRD Saturday of the month!

So our Reveal Challenge consisted of a COLOR CHALLENGE. I am very much scared of choosing colors outside of the normal color matching....if that makes sense. I was scared but excited.
I was very excited yet so very scared with this challenge. This TOTALLY took me out of my comfort zone and made me think and figure out how to use the colors and in what order. So for this Challenge I made two crocheted items, Why not, right?? 1- I am ALWAYS looking for color combos that are out of my norm and will challenge me= this did. 2- I need new bright items for my shop!

So to stay in my comfort zone I crocheted this hat. The main color was pink (safe) then I had to figure out how to incorporate the rest of the colors of the challenge. Its very pretty but it works :) I was still determined to use these colors again. I knew I didn't have enough yarn to make another hat so I had to rack my brain to figure out what to make. This is what I did for the challenge as well

It's my super cute Headband!! I love the way it came out! What do you all thing? So the color challenge really do just that, it challenged me to think outside of my comfort zone. I will say that I love all of these colors together!

So head on over to Hello Cutie Challenges to see what my fellow DT members did with this color challenge. this challenge is due on March 26, 2011 at 11:59est...you can find the details on the blog. So head on over and start this challenge. Its a great way to kick your mojo back up!! Oh ya don't forget to follow the Hello Cutie Challenge blog!!
