Crafty Blues

Welcome to Blue Monday, hosted by Smiling Sally! Every week we post pictures of blue, or primarily blue, things. Home decorations, clothes, cars, anything you can think of and get a picture! After you look at my offering this Monday, zip on over to Sally's to see what she and the other participants have on display. If you've never participated, try and join us next week!
I noticed the other day that many of my crafting tools are blue.

Circle CuttersPaint Brushes & PaintI knew I was addicted to fun pens, but this is ridiculous!

If I have this many blue, what have I got in other colors!?Then there are the blue supplies like these yummy buttons.Lacy & Shiny RibbonsThe most important item in the Craft Room, CHOCOLATE!

I hope this post made you look at the things around you every day that are the color blue. Why is it used on so many everyday things? Don't forget to visit Smiling Sally and the other participants to see their Blue Monday posts!

You are indeed a well equipped crafter! Now why did I not realize that chocolate was a key component? Thanks for that tip!

I've never been much at crafting; maybe it's because I didn't have a FULLY stocked supply. Yum.

What do you use the circles for? Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday!

Great Blue Monday post Elizabeth! I am more partial to dark chocolate though. Milk chocolate upsets my stomach for some reason. I adore your circle cutters, might just have to look for some myself. xxoo

Knitty said...

At first glance, I thought the first photo was glass plates with blue rims and clear centers. Duh...I have circle cutters so why didn't I recognize them right away? Must be because I haven't had any chocolate yet! ;)

Rue said...

Good morning Elizabeth :)

So that's why I'm not as crafty as I want be! I need chocolate ;)

Have a great Monday,
rue

Hi Elizabeth!
You really found some great stashes of blue. Love the buttons. Now pass me one of those chocolates please....

Sweetie said...

Hi Elizabeth, Your blue crafting supplies are really neat. Of course, my favorite thing is the chocolate.
Happy Blue Monday.

How amusing we both have the craft room blues! I have the exact same circle cuttters for scrapbooking. The pink one too like you have in another picture. I don't have the chocolates though. Guess I better add those to my sewing/craft room. LOL! Thanks for visiting my blue Monday. Happy Blue Monday!

Justine said...

Wow, that's a lot of pretty blue!!!!!

Justine :o ) <--- walking out with some chocolates.

mannequin said...

You are so right; though it's not my favorite, so many things are blue. I love all your blue paint brushes. Most of mine are brown. Go figure.

The chocolate is a very important component. Without that little sugar buzz, how could we be inspired to stay up all night crafting?

Have an awesome Blue Monday!
ciao!

I actually said oooh out loud as the page loaded. I love blue. Most of my kitchen things are blue... stand mixer, plates, even my lemon zester!

Coloradolady said...

Great BLUE craft supplies! How fun. I so love the buttons, these look VINTAGE too. Great post. Happy Blue Monday.

Shelia said...

Hi Elizabeth. I could do some damage will all of your blueness, especially the chocolate.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Patty said...

I just told you in an email that even a few blue buttons would be enough for a post. :) I must be psychic, although you have more than a few.

I especially love the blue buttons, lace, and ribbon! It is really amazing all the beautiful blue that surrounds us. Happy Blue Monday! Thanks for commenting on my blog too! Have a great week!

There you go... chocolate! Definitely the best blue thing in the room, lol.

How fun seeing what kind of blues you had in your craft area! I think I like the blue buttons the best, but even those are second to the Dove chocolate! I LOVE that brand of chocolate!

The best supply of all is the Dove -Mmmm!

Shabby Kim said...

What fun to see all of your blue crafting supplies, but like most of the other's said in their comments, the blue wrapped chocolate has to be the best. I LOVE chocolate. My favorites are the the bite size Milky Way Midnights, but the Dove dark chocolates will do in a pinch. Have a great week!!

Shelia said...

Elizabeth, you've been Boo-ed! Come to my site and see what you get!
Happy Halloween,
Shelia ;)

judicreations said...

I can't imagine you have so many blue tools for crafting...thats so neat. I wonder whether that was intentional? Mine are not of any one colour...hmmmm...

Everything looks like fun...and I'm sure you have fun creating with all those blue items.

YOU have been booo-ED. Are you scared? come by and see what its all about.

Have a nice evening.

My eight two year old mother loves blue and always comments on anything blue. One day she said, "Is that shirt beautiful or is it just blue?" Thanks for a great post
