Patricia from TheOldBarnDoor says:

This iconic Canadian image is taken from a vintage postage stamp and to me it evokes strength and determination with a touch of elegance. Some pretty good qualities to live by I think.

Cristal Hughes from DesignsbyCristal says:

Blue is a cool color, it’s the color of the sky and sea. It symbolizes stability, loyalty, confidence, intelligence and peace.

Blue always seems to put me at ease which is why I love being on the beach in the early morning or early evenings to just sit back and watch the movement of the ocean while visiting the beaches on vacation.

I think if we didn’t have any natural disasters I’d go retire on a beach somewhere to live out the rest of my natural life!

Cindy Humphrey from Cynhumphrey says:

Blue is one of my favorite colors so it’s not uncommon to find something blue in my shop. In fact, you’ll find a lot of blue in my shop!

My personal preference to jewelry is something that is light weight and looks classy. I like comfort and elegance all wrapped up in one item.

I think these marina blue earrings capture that and are a personal favorite of mine.

Kristen from KestrelCollection says:

This marina blue glass crystal bracelet also features a clear cut glass crystal up-cycled from a chandelier. I love to reuse items and see them live again and thought these colors together were so calming, like a day at the marina.

Desert Dabbler from DesertDabbler says:

The green stones in this bracelet are Moss Agate. The color is a great match for Pantone’s Shaded Spruce. When I made the bracelet it reminded me of a day at the creek. Walking along a tree lined creed is so relaxing. The agate is hand-knapped, which gives it a rustic boho look.  The earrings are glass beads in the same shaded spruce color.

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

Yay for Gray!

I love the neutral background of our printable party poster because the cement gray makes the bright pink stand out even more and it’s a nice fit for some party planners who are sick of mundane white backgrounds. I’ve used this digital design for sending congratulatory emails to friends and family on many occasions. I’ve changed the font color from pink to Red and Blue and I can do the same for our customers. I love custom designs.

The pink and gray tassel component inspired me to create this feminine gemstone necklace.

Cerena Levene Studio Make Believe from CerenaLevene says:

These luxurious cloth napkins were inspired by my love of natural things around me. I live where huge Loblolly pine cones fall seasonally and make great fire starters for the fireplace, terrific decorations in baskets and fun projects for children during the winter season.

Navy Peony and a rich chocolate brown partners well with the the look of glistening snow- whether it is your white dinner set, milk glass, crystal goblets- or even tin!

Diana from joliefemmebydiana says:

Navy Peony is a classic color perfect when combined with white. This bag is just right for any occasion from a dinner date to a casual wedding! Navy peony is great for all seasons and goes with so many colors as an alternative to black.

Cristal Hughes from DesignsbyCristal says:

Navy blue is a perfect back drop to display the pink ribbons for Breast Cancer. In this print it’s no wonder they paired navy peony with the pink ribbons because a Breast Cancer survivor or fighter is strong (solid), faithful (dependable), and secure (stable) in this battle.

I have both friends and family whom have battled this illness and I’ve seen how each one was solid, stable, and dependable for their families even though they were in a fight to live!

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

Navy Peony: A dependable and anchoring shade. That’s a great way to describe what a home means to me. Our little family has seen our fair share of planes, trains, suitcases and hotel rooms, but as long as we are together, we can make any place a home. We offer printed and printable ‘HOME’ art, and SLS is happy to customize the map to show where you’ve made your home.

Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital says:

I had started work on a new paper pack – I wanted to do something in navy or denim blue and make it look a bit old and worn – so, navy peony seems a perfect color for this set. I love how it contrasts with the beige to give it a classic old denim look.

Christine from cwagenblass9 says:
