There are so many spray paint colors now. We are way past the typical black, white, blue, red, yellow and green. For instance, there are many different colors of blue (and my memory is not so great) that I’m not going to remember the color of a table or lamp unless I have some sort of reference on it. This is what I do to know what color I’ve painted something. I write the brand and color on a piece of tape.

And stick it to the underside of the painted item. If I need to do a touch-up or want to paint something else that color, I just need to check the piece of tape for reference. Do you have a tip for keeping track of a paint color? Share your info and leave it in the comment area.

Lots of times bloggers have found me–they see a project on another link party and ask if I’ll put it on theirs. It’s been a great way for me to find new blogs and link parties. I assume it must help them build up their entries because I’ve never turned anyone down who has taken the time to ask–I’m flattered . I know it’s more work in the short run, but you’re also more likely to find the kinds of crafters that create the things that fit with your blog, too.

Great idea with the labels. I think I might just use it for other paint projects as well. I’ve had people ask me what paint I used in a certain room, and it’s always, “I’ll have to get back to you.” I think I’m gonna put it on a piece of tape and stick it in on the back of a closet door or some other inconspicuous spot in a room with a closet so that I can take a quick look for the answer.

I am so sad that you are thinking of stopping the party! I love this little gig and you are responsible for giving me so much of my traffic, it isn’t even funny! Please let me know what I can do to spread the word….anything….I will do it!

I linked up for the first time ever (I think) tonight … only because I haven’t really had much to blog about in terms of projects. But I’m working on writing more blog posts to include that kind of stuff (as I usually write most about my photography as that’s my number one interest after my family). I visit your blog on a regular basis, and I love seeing what other readers are doing. So I’d love it if you continue the link party, I’ll try to share it in the future.
