Hi, and welcome to my little corner of COLOURlovers. Feel free to call me Piahr, Pia, or just plain P. I'm so happy to be here – this place is Inspiration Central! I can generally be found hanging around, spending some quality window shopping time browsing (and loving) your amazing palettes and patterns, playing some of those fun Forum games, or enjoying some relaxing art play time making a few colorful goodies of my own.
Please know that I cherish every single love, fave, comment, and follow that you give me. (My CL emails are always read before any others.) I’ve met loads of kindred spirits here; this wonderful community is the absolute best ever. Color the Galaxy! ♥♥♥ Pia
February 5, 2016 〜 Getting closer to Valentine's Day by the minute. One of my favorite holidays, hearts, candy, flowers… Ahhh, all the good stuff. An abundance of those romantic pinks and passionate reds are bound to chase away the winter chills, too.
〜 My CL anniversary is at the end of February, too. Counting down to a 4-Year Anniversary Party! Time sure goes quickly when you're having this much fun.

"The best thing to hold onto in life is each other."
〜 Audrey Hepburn
"Love is the voice under all silences, the hope which has no opposite in fear; the strength so
strong mere force is feebleness: the truth more first than sun, more last than star…"
〜 E.E. Cummings
"True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about and few have seen."
〜 François de La Rouchefoucauld
"To those who have given up on love: I say, 'Trust life a little bit.'"
〜 Maya Angelou
Profile Photo: Meet da Vinci; he works at the library here. Don't be shy – shake his paw. Like most terriers, he's quite intelligent, and more than a little bit stubborn. He's very good at sniffing out the best art books and he'll fetch coffee too, if he likes you. Don't let his reading glasses and teddy bear demeanor fool you into thinking he's a pushover, though. He can be ferocious if he catches anyone disrespecting his books. (In case you were wondering, yes, da Vinci is part of my rich and satisfying fantasy life.)
