Ho hum, ho hum. Why does everything have to look so boring. Life is full of so many whites and grays and blacks and brown. What we really need is a little color to spice things up. That gives me a great idea, we should put little bits of color all over stuff. Nothing is better for adding colors to stuff than fabulous sequins. We can do all kinds of sequin crafts and make our shoes pretty and our books pretty, all kinds of stuff would look good with sequins. What a quick way to add a little zest to all my plain looking stuff, I can't wait.
