Growth and Change

Hello Subscribers and New Visitors~

To those of you who have been following my blog for a while, you’ve probably noticed  that:

#1-After blogging fairly consistently, I took a break for about six months where you didn’t hear much (or at all) from me and;

#2-I seem to be taking this blog in a different direction.

Let me explain…

Since, according to my Archives,  beginning with my first blog post about six years ago (my how time flies!), a lot has changed.

I’ve changed, and I’ll venture a guess so have you.

Speaking for myself, I’ve kind of dipped back into areas of creativity I’ve always loved (such as visual arts, beauty, design, fashion) that, in lieu of writing about All Things Creative Entrepreneur-wise, I once again find myself being drawn back toward.

So, these days, if you’re still following me (and I know there’s a lot going on out there to draw your attention–and I appreciate your attention), you’ll find me talking more about beauty, fashion (my latest venture into being a mark./AVON representative), design, art, photography (Instagram), dance, as well as writing.

So, in a nutshell, you may see fewer words, more visual.

I hope you like the new direction and that you continue to enjoy my posts.

I’m honored you stopped by.

So, on that note…on to this week’s post!

“Colors this season transcend cultural and gender norms. Vivid brights give way to excitement and optimism, though quiet stability prevails in this season’s palette.”

(from pantone’s colors of 2016).

Ahhh, Spring!

I like Pantone’s combination of “excitement and optimism” mixed with “quiet stability”…a good combo not just for color but for a mantra for the season, yes?

Although Pantone has actually chosen 10 colors of the year, I’m thrilled to see two of my favorite colors are in this year’s color palate: Peach Echo and Limpet Shell. They compliment each other well, don’t you think?

Whereas a pastel version is fitting for Spring, taking it to a deeper tone suggests more of a summer palate.

Here are some examples, seen separately…images-4

As well as complimenting each other…

You get the idea.

And, don’t forget to check out what AVON, AVON Living and mark. by AVON have done with these colors by incorporating them into their season’s palate as well.
