All about U and creative women

The U from Jeanie Lamborn of Colorado Springs.

Jeanie Lamborn says she comes from a long line of creative women. Her mother was a quilter. Her grandmother had an art studio above her garage. So when Lamborn decided to decorate a wooden U she knew what direction to go in.

She used scrapbook paper, acrylic paint, stamping and texturing. She cut out the stars.

Lamborn, who has been married to Congressman Doug Lamborn for 42 years, has her artwork displayed on her website.

Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams is handing out the woodenU’s as part of the UChooseCO campaign to educate unaffiliated voters that they can participate in the June 26 primary election, but they can only vote one ballot. The campaign has a web pageFacebook page, a Twitter account and its own hashtag, #UChooseCO.

At least every week day between now and the June 26 primary the Secretary of State’s office will highlight a wooden U or two. Check out more decorated U’s on Facebook and Twitter.
