All About Color

Do you think I use the word “awesome” too much?

You can tell me the truth.

I can take it.


I’m a little worried, myself.  At last count….I think there were 56 “awesomes” to describe pins on my pin boards.

I don’t really know what it is about that word.

Maybe it’s that it sounds like the verbal equivalent of an exclamation point.

Maybe it’s because I memorized every word of “Sixteen Candles.”

Maybe it’s because it sums up exactly how I feel about the inspiration I see daily in blogland.


Whatever the reason….

….the fact remains that I found 41 synonyms for “awesome” including:  amazing, astonishing, awe-inspiring, beautiful, breathtaking, daunting, fantastic, formidable, imposing, impressive, inspiring, magnificent, majestic, moving, overwhelming, striking, stunning, stupefying, wonderful and wonderous.

And I plan on using every one 🙂




So be sure to check out these stupefying orange fish from Linda at It All Started With Paint.

I have just decided at this moment that I am all about the word stupefying.

It’s like an “awesome” that went to college.

And got an advanced degree.


Washi Tape Keyboard


And here’s an awe-inspiring washi tape make-over from Kelly at Eclectically Vintage.

She added washi tape to the computer keys.

It kind of reminds me of a 2012 version of Lee Press On Nails.

Maybe that’s why I like it 🙂




Karah from The Space Between posted this amazing mantel with spray painted wreath.

It’s awe-inspiring.

And magnificent.

And fantastic.



Andrea from The Cottage Market created these fantastic framed cut-outs.

They are astonishing.

And wonderous.

And inspiring.

And pink 🙂

And now it’s your turn to show off your amazing, astonishing, awe-inspiring, breathtaking, fantastic, impressive, inspiring, magnificent, majestic, moving, overwhelming, striking, stunning, stupefying, wonderful

  5. awesome that went to college–love that AND it cracks me up! you know, it describes you, karianne!

  6. Ah ha ha….. I think it’s funny that after I read the list of awesome’s I said to myself, ‘self…. stupefy is the word you’ve been looking for’, and then first up was some stupefying fish.


  7. Jordan and I at The 2 Seasons appreciate your hosting this party. We linked up, but for some reason it isn’t showing up. I tried to link again, and it told me that I was duplicating the link. I’m not smart enough to figure this all out, so I hope it shows up. I still think yours is the best blog out there.

  8. One word for you Awesome! But your synonyms are giving it a run for it’s money!

    And I love your analogy – Lee press on nails of 2012!! Now why didn’t I think of that?!

    Here’s to a stupendous party!

  9. Just stopping in today to let you know there is no such thing as the overuse of the world awesome! I mean the little boy on the tricycle in The Incredibles even uses it…. “that is totally AWESOME!!” Thank you so very much for hosting this lovely party! Now I am off to…. no not link up just yet but rather… do the dishes. i know so anti-climactic but it needs done.

    Oh I just thought of something…. can we link up an old post or two?

    Have a wonderful day!! Now I”m off to do the dishes so I can go play afterwards! Tata for now, my dear!!

  10. This linky is awesome… that is certainly the word for it! Thanks for hosting. I tried to link up a post but it is not showing up…. and when I try to re-link it says I have already done so. So, I hope it turns up!
    Now off to visit some colorful posts!

  11. When we visited Ocho Rios on our cruise, our Jamaican tour guide’s name was Phil. (Don’t worry, this isn’t the end of the story.) He used every word that he knew that began with “ph-.” Made for an interesting tour. 😉 (That’s the end of the story now.)

    Thanks for hosting!

  12. Awesome. is. an. awesome. word! Thanks for the party lady – I heart you!

  13. I probably over-use awesome too. And exclamation points. But if something is awesome and worthy of a few !!!, then so be it! 🙂 (I use too many smilies too). Loving all the great colour inspiration so far, and still lots of party people to visit 🙂

  14. You girls know how to through a party! Thanks for hosting. I’m loving all the color.

  15. Terrific party!!!….I see lots of inspiration and awesome, oh, I mean terrific posts!!

  16. I’m thinking stupefying is pretty close to stupid. As in why in the world did I buy those stupid fish and paint them stupid orange!


    So happy to party with you my awesome, awe-inspiring friend!


  17. Thanks for hosting! What a fun party!

  18. Oh, yes, .. they are all stupendous, strikingly extraordinary, astounding and {my all-time favorite word} pulchritudinous.

    Shine on, Oh Ye of prodigious creativity! Shine on.

    {ahem…you will see I have no link which to link up. My creativity faileth me at this juncture…}

  19. Awesome flows better than stupefying and it’s easier to spell 🙂

  20. I’m right there with ya in the awesome department. I also say amazing just as often. And whenever I think of “overwhelming” I start to quote 10 Things I Hate About You – “I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed.” Hilarious. 🙂

  21. I like all the awesomes, I think the enthusiasm helps us “get” you, especially those of us who had to miss meeting you in person at Haven, snif:)

    Plus, your red table is awesome too:)


  22. The desk looks gorgeous, however, have you ever tried to write on a piece of paper that is on top of cork? It would be an AWESOME place to rest a laptop computer, though. Enjoy!

  23. I think it is awesome you use the word awesome.

    It means you think it is AWESOME, and how is that a bad thing?

    Don’t change. Don’t ever change. I think you are awesome.

    OK, kick me now in the shins, I deserve it big time.

  24. I know I use the word awesome to much but I really don’t care! I think it just a good way for us to let someone know we really, really like something!

  25. I think you are pretty awesome so you can use that word as many times as you like! Love your shares, especially that awesome keyboard!

  26. um, ya well same problem here – yet in the 80s I hated the word and refused to use it!!! jokes on me!

    YOU’RE A W E S O M E ! !

  27. The word I like to you use when I feel like to have used the word “awesome” to much (because I too am very guilty of it), is Brilliant! That is my word. Those fish are Brilliant and the pink frames are extra Brilliant. Maybe Brilliant can be the word that Stupefy graduates to when it gets its PhD. Just a thought.

  28. You are so right about ‘awesome’… love that you looked it up and have found some alternate step-ins! So much fun 🙂 Thank you so much for hosting the link up today. It’s a great party!!!

  29. Great party and I think you’re awesome and all those other words too!!

  30. You don’t use the word awesome too much, do I…………………………lol
    Love the keyboard so cute and different and I love framed cut-outs and since they are pink and I love the colour pink

  32. Thankyou so much for hosting yet another, dare I say…..’AWESOME’ linky party !
    Your bright pop of red on that gorgeous desk is bright and happy, I love it Karianne xo

  33. I love this party, KariAnne! It’s so FRESH! I’m gonna have fun going thru all the links. Oh, btw, I just purchased my ticket for the Southern Bloggers Conference. I can’t wait! Oh, and I love all the new words….gonna have to try them out.

  34. Hey Karianne-

    Thank you so much for hosting this fun party- along with your other hostesses-
    I am #136- Woo hoo!

    And I loved what you wrote about the word awesome. I am not kidding-
    I recently wondered where my vocabulary had gone because all I say is
    ‘that is awesome’.

    I am off to read more posts,

    White Spray Paint

  35. Amazing how the post wrote itself with the lovely ocean views to show!

  36. When someone writes an paragraph he/she maintains the thought of a user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it.

    Thus that’s why this article is outstdanding. Thanks!
