Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital says:

I love shades of blue. I wanted to put together a set of digital paper with blues and greens because I love love love the way they go together. Hence, this set:

Strong, bright and energizing, Pantone’s ‘Little Boy Blue’ is definitely not just for little boys! We used a blue sky background for our funny, quirky quote art to evoke a positive vibe. This affordable printable word art makes a great addition to dorm rooms or first apartments, but since it’s digital, you can also send it as a cute text or email addition to artist friends or lovers. What color are you feeling today?

Judy Merashoff from JAMsCraftCloset says:

I love painting on glass. I also love taking something vintage and adding my personal touch to that item. Here is an example…vintage little boy blue mugs with hand painted floral accents. I also love having something unique as a decor accent in my home. Here’s yours…

The Little Boy Blue hues in these sky coloured beads are definitely singing out for the season’s promise of new longer days that are fast approaching. I’m ready for spring, are you?

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

The beaded bracelet is made with aquamarine chip beads and golden Czech glass beads. The aquamarine stones are the color of the blue sky and is the birthstone for March. This blue is also one of Pantone’s colors of the year, Little Boy Blue.

Cindy Humphrey from Cynhumphrey says:

Blue is one of my favorite colors, in case you couldn’t tell by some of my shop branding! This one-of-a-kind sun visor clip was inspired by my blue car and love for bling. I am a firm believer in “bling” everywhere.

The concept of this item is simple and fun. I chose the ohm symbol because that is associated with stress relief and peacefulness. Sometimes you need that while driving! Or, at least I do!

Arlene from ThisandThatCrafter says:

This ribbon is in the Little Boy Blue color. Great to add that wonderful Blue touch to many crafting projects or to add this fun blue to your package when gift giving. Will add a special touch to so many things.
