Rain or Shine?

It's cloudy and a glorious 64 degrees...ahhhhhh!  But, that's not necessarily the entire reason for the title of my post :)
I try to keep up with all of the 'trends' and 'hot colors' of the season.  Seems like yellow and gray are amongst the hottest color trends this year; if you follow the newest releases in scrapbooking, then you're probably familiar with Authentique's Blissful
I found that the color combination soon began to grow on me so why not make some crepe fringe to match? You can now find --Rain or Shine-- Handmade Crepe Paper Fringe at my Dot & Whimsy Etsy shop!  Colors of marigold, gray and white have been machine-stitched, doubled, machine-stitched again and then carefully handcut to create a fun and festive fringe.
On a BETTER note, tomorrow we are hosting a fantastically fun BLOG HOP at Paper Issues.  
Tons and tons of prizes to be given away!
  My prize give-a-way? One winner will receive THREE skeins of --On The Fringe-- Handmade Crepe Paper Fringe!  I have tons of color schemes; you get to pick your very own three :)  What do you do with fringe?  The fringe that I make isn't necessarily the kind that you hang from the rafters;  rather, I created this fringe to outline the tops of baskets and bags, to add a little pizazz to cards and scrapbook pages, or to embellish party hats, clay figurines and prim dolls...there are literally tons of possibilities.  Everyone seems to ♥ ♥ ♥ tha FRINGE!
So get ready tomorrow, Friday September 16th to begin hopping with us!

I have some more FUN news!  It seems like so many of my Paper Issues, My Scrapbook Nook and Your Scrapbook Stash gals are getting in on  a lot of Design Team action...Doodle Bug, American Crafts, Pebbles...whew!  I'm very excited for ALL of my friends; well-deserved :)
So, for me?  I've been asked to be a Guest Designer at Kraft Outlet.  Oh. My. Goody.  Have you visited? 
This girl LOVES some kraft goodness ♥  It's a staple in my stash.  
My design month will be March 2012...I'm all ready looking forward to it...I will get a head-start by doing a little shopping beforehead LOL
