Is there such a thing as too much purple?

My site is purple. I just couldn't help it. Purple is my favorite color and I'm attracted to all things purple...lavender, purple clothing, bell-flowers, pansies. The only thing I've found that I don't like in purple is nail polish. Even the school where I work has purple as its logo color - lucky me!

I thought about designing my site in more neutral colors, but anything colorless seemed just too plain, and other colors just weren't me. I learned a lesson a long time ago from my dear friend Eric, who paraphrased the author Leo Buscaglia. If God created me to be a plum, but I try to be a banana because I think people like bananas or want me to be a banana, I'll never be a good banana; it's not what I was created to be. But I can be the best plum that God created me to be, once I accept that I am a plum. And plums are purple too!

Here I am!

Well here is post #1. Time to stop thinking about it, trying to perfect everything, and just post! I took lots of great pics today outside in the yard, but can I find my camera cord to upload them? Of course not! Hopefully the pics will be online soon. On a positive note, I did use some "found" time today to do some research into launching my new hand-made jewelry business, as well as design my logo and business card. You'll see more about that soon too!
