i often fall asleep thinking of color and end up dreaming about it. i once told a photographer friend of mine about this, he seemed to understand, and the next time i saw him, he had a gift for me, a beautiful book about color.
last night, i looked through the j.crew catalog before falling asleep and awoke with loads of ideas, not based on their designs (although, they provide their own inspiration), but on the colors of their gorgeous italian cashmere sweaters. i couldn't wait to sort through my beads and start creating. color does something to me, it stops me in my tracks, sometimes, it's an eyeshadow, sometimes, it's a flower and sometimes, it's something on etsy's front page, that just draws me in.
