These are so cute! (Just as all of your ideas are). A long time ago, were you and your boyfriend mentioned in a broadcast of NPR's This American Life?

I can never remember how to spell silhouettes, so sillyettes it is!

Your site rocks btw, I check it several times a day.

Could we get a pic of the whole wall? I'm curious your layout.

Dying to know how you to the silhouette cutouts. Do you mind sharing, please?

It's FABULOUS!

colormekatie said...

I did a story in Time Out New York on how to make them. You can read it here! http://newyork.timeout.com/articles/apartments/75532/how-to-paper-silhouette-art

wodedrawling said...

Awesome! I read the How To, but where do you recommend someone on a budget get a lot of simple frames?

Brooke Premo said...

Oh, it's so pretty. Does it take you very long to do each silhouette? I always love how silhouette is spelled.

colormekatie said...

I just buy my frames at the dollar store! ;)

Raptor Plateado said...

so cute!!!

Teany Tiny Star said...

they're so pretty :)

apfel said...

The silhouettes are lovely! I wanna do something like this for my room too! But I'll have to paint it white first. It's now an ugly shade of dirty.

Nessa said...

Gorgeous. I wish I could incorporate more happiness like that into my apartment. I'm definitely taking a look at the instructions link you posted in the comments.

Marcie said...

So very inspiring..and totally creative. I just love the way you think!!!

Ilse said...

Liz said...

I can't tell you enough how much I love your blog! I've been using it to inspire my son with his art projects. He loves your bubble wall art display.

Jen said...

This is way super cute! =)
Your blog is so happy & inspiring. I can't wait until I move into my own apartment or house so I can decorate it like yours
=)

Kristi said...

Love it and your amazing creativity!

Carmab. said...

this is awesome!!

Did you think of the silhouettes yourself? They are fantastic and I think I could stare at them all day!

Stumbling, Falling, Dreaming & Flying said...

very cool - although, i'm sensing a wee lull in your current creativity levels - maybe you should blog about that, although then people may know you're not quite superhuman!

colormekatie said...

I've actually been quite busy working on two books and projects for the Martha Stewart Show.

Charming Photo Wall!

lori* said...

You are darling <3

Jennifer said...

You are an incredible artist and have an obvious spirit about you that it completely contagious. I would love if you could do a shoot of your entire house so we could get an idea of your creative space. Or even just a picture of where you work most often, maybe a desk where your computer sits most of the time. The creative area where an artist work tells so much about the artist themselves, so I'd be very interested to see yours. Keep embracing and radiating that beautiful spirit!

the southern hostess said...

So beautiful and creative.

I immediately spent at least 2 hours looking at every single picture and being totally inspired by each one! I love your creativity! You and Matty are like a picture of what i hope my life is like when i grow up:) hahha

Tom Jones said...

Your work never fails to make me smile - just brilliant!

Katie said...

I love all the silhouettes crawling out of their frames to interact with each other - so sweet

Elie's Papel said...

These are very creative... love the color silhouettes... ;)

stephanie said...

it looks beautiful!!!

Miss B said...

This is just fantastic!

Louise said...

I showed my 19 year old daughter your blog and she was inspired to create a framed silhouette grouping of herself and her three little sisters. One was jumping, one was cart wheeling, one has holding a balloon and the last was dancing. She did them all in black on a white background. It is now hanging by the door and making me very, very happy every time I walk by. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!

colormekatie said...

That's wonderful Louise! The pictures sound so fun!!

What a great idea. Your unique twist to good 'ol silhouettes makes the the "sillyettes" really stand apart.

Tania said...

Hi
I'm Tania Adams, I write from Lima - Peru. Found
by chance and I love your blogg! I think you're
very creative designs and decorating the
walls is very original and I love to
do it in my house that is painted white and I think
that the proposed bright colors give it life,
brightness and joy. I wish I could do it, but
I fear that injures the walls, I can
help with some tips for hitting the papers?.
Thank you very much, hopefully you read my message and answer, much love ...
