I’m not going to lie to you, Mardi Gras has never been a holiday I have celebrated. Nothing against New Orleans, as a matter of fact I’m planning to take a trip there this spring, it is the colors. First of all I have never been a purple person, second purple with gold and green hurts my soul. For some reason this year I have finally embraced Mardi Gras colors. To the point where I decorated an entire Mardi Gras tree for Treetopia and made a custom glittered Mardi Gras mask for I Love to Create. Maybe it is all that Treme I watched or the fact that I am trying to cut carbs and would kick a kitten for a beignet.
