222 Giveaway Update (or Vacation, All I Ever Wanted!)

Robot In Bloom will be taking some time off starting today (Friday, 7/23/10) for about a week or so... I will be abandoning all internet and cell phone contact, so please don't think I hate you if I don't get back to you right away!

In related news: Regarding the 222 Giveaway, if the Facebook page reaches 222 fans (aka: "likes") while I'm off the grid, the drawing will be held as soon as I return to the cyberworld. If there are more people than the 222, only the first 222 fans (minus myself, my sister, and our past winner) will be included in the drawing.

Enough gabbing.
Here's some new pictures!

This arrangement has a new home in the studio of Monkey Tree Photography. The office is decorated in fun peacock colors and this whimsical piece fits right in!

Inspiration From Perfect Palette (or Fuchsia and Navy + Yellow and Grey = Love)

It's no secret to anyone within 50 ft me that I loooooove color!

My apartment is awash in lots of bright shades, my wardrobe isn't scared of mixing bold hues, and even my wedding refused to settle on one or two colors...

One of the main places I get my color kicks is from The Perfect Palette. They help people visualize wedding color palettes with trendy swatches and beautiful inspiration boards. And - bonus! - they're one of my fellow honorees in the Everything Wedding Blog Carnival #6!

One of their recent palettes - Fuchsia, Light Pink, and Navy - reminded me of some blooms I did a few months ago for Lauren Castine of Frecklebug Boutique.

Lauren was definitely ahead of the style curve with that gorgeous palette! (These aren't the actual arragements I made for Lauren's fancy Mother's Day party, but they're close.)

Another recent combo The Perfect Palette put together is one I've been a huge fan of since I was little: Orange, Yellow, and Gray!

Okay, in the interest of full disclosure, I'll admit that orange has been a very recent addition into that enchanting hue group lodged in my heart. And, in the interest of kicking things old school, I made a simple new arrangement in Grey, Silver, and Yellow.

I was thisclose to choosing Yellow and Grey for my wedding palette, but I used it later in my business logo!

Austin Wedding Blog (or You Like Me, You Really Like Me!)

Check it out, you guys!

The hip, stylish Austin Wedding Blog chose to include this Robot In Bloom blog post in the Everything Wedding Blog Carnival #6!


The Everything Wedding Blog Carnival was started by the incredibly popular, incredibly informative wedding resource, Bride Tide. The honor of choosing features for the 6th edition fell to Rachel of the Austin Wedding Blog, and she chose to tell the wedding world about my flower jewelry!

Which is all in perfect timing, too, because I'm about to fill my Etsy shop with a bunch of new rings, hairclips, and a few other baubles for your personal decoration!

Anyway, thank you so much Ms. Rachel for including Robot In Bloom!
