Thinking about Momma - a few dates to remember

One of the most thoughtful and unique gifts to the art and fashion lover in your life is a hand painted silk scarf.  It even becomes more special if it has been custom made just for her.  Mother’s Day will be here before you know it (May 8th), so just sending you a friendly reminder about timing :)

Although I do love creating special, custom pieces, please keep in mind that newly designed, custom scarves can be quite time intensive due to the creative process.  Here is a great example of a past custom project which illustrates the process from sketch concept to final scarf HERE. My schedule is filling up quickly right now so I just wanted to post a few dates (for U.S. residents) to remember in case you are considering placing an order and would like to have it in time for Mother’s Day.

Easy being Green

Can you believe it is March already?  It seems that 2011 is just flying by and here in Southern California it is finally starting to feel like Spring!  A sure way to brighten up your outfit from winter to a fresh, spring look is to throw on a lovely, hand painted, green scarf (not to mention it's always good to be prepared on St. Patrick's Day and Earth Day).

After all, it is such a wonderful color.. and as Kermit the Frog sings:

"But green's the color of Spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like an ocean, or important
Like a mountain, or tall like a tree"
.... or silky and gorgeous like a stunning Muse scarf....
(hmm this last line may have been added by a third party)

and let Muse Silk Paintings show you just how easy it is to be green!
