Fall 2010 Color Trends – Pantone Agrees with Me!

06/06/2010 § Leave a comment

Good Morning! I’m perusing the internet this morning and I have found that the color selections for Fall 2010 chosen by Pantone correlate to the Fantasy theme I posted about earlier this week. I’m so very excited for their color lineup which include:

PANTONE 13-0632 Endive
PANTONE 15-1050 Golden Glow
PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral
PANTONE 19-1764 Lipstick Red
PANTONE 18-3027 Purple Orchid
PANTONE 19-1526 Chocolate Truffle
PANTONE 16-5418 Lagoon
PANTONE 18-0538 Woodbine
PANTONE 14-1107 Oyster Gray
PANTONE 14-1307 Rose Dust

“Mindful of consumers’ need for practicality, plus their desire for newness, designers offer many options for women to extend and embellish their wardrobes this fall,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Building on the color palette from spring, this season’s offerings include innovative takes on fundamental basics, as well as transporting, lively colors that conjure images of travel and adventure, whether real or aspirational.”

I love every color here and already incorporate some of these into my design. I think this palette is perfect for my latest collection (arriving Fall 2010) inspired by the amazing art of Alan Aldridge.

A Serious Case of the Blahs

Hello world, it’s Monday – and I hate Mondays.  With a passion.  I’m finding myself in a serious Monday funk with little or no will to work or do much other than take a nice long nap!  So, I’m going to find me some inspiration to get moving!  Time for some color and some coffee.

Here is my Ode to Spring!

Adventures in Blogging…Part 2

01/20/2010 § 1 Comment

So it’s Wednesday again and I have been slacking in the blogging department.  I swear there are just not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything.  I have decided to keep up with Wednesday being dedicated to blogging or blogs or things about blogs.  I’ve decided to feature a few more blogs that you may not otherwise find.

Art Bead Scene is a great blog about all things BEAD.  Projects, suppliers, artists – you name it.  Their blog summary says it best:  Celebrating art beads, inspiring those who use them.

Not only is Paper Cakes Finds a good blog, it is a beautiful blog too.  I love their themes, especially when they do little birdies! Great gift, style and Etsy seller guides and such gorgeous, gorgeous pictures.  Subscribe!
This blog, Sippy Cups Are Not For Starbucks is done by a friend of mine.  It is really great – one of those real life blogs you can actually enjoy and laugh at.  I think the author sums it up best:

Reflections, sarcastic observations, jumbled thoughts & lots of feelings about everyday experiences as a wife, mom, friend & self-proclaimed complainer. I don’t have it figured out, but I’m working towards finding some balance & a glass half full.

Where Am I?
