Pantone colors for Spring 2011

I'm not gunna lie. I think I have an eye for good design.  It's the consolation prize God gave me after he realized I had no talent whatsoever in the performing arts department or the math department or any other department for that matter.  He dug out the wand for design and dinged me on the head and said, "Go forth and beautify the World my child."  I'm pretty sure that's how it went.  

Pantone will announce the official color of 2011 later today. I guess they have all kinds of smarty pants analysts working around the clock to figure out what the hot designers are using.  Turns out it's "Honeysuckle" pink. That's #e76589 for all you fellow designers and hot pink for all you non-designer types. 

I personally endorse this decision. We could all use a little more honeysuckle in our life.

Now let us look at the Christmas cards I will be sending out this year. The very cards I ordered just days before Pantone leaked their color choice.

Sometimes I tickle myself pink with my design prowess.

Now we'll see if I can get my smug self to actually get said cards in the mail in a timely manner.  God didn't ding me with the organization wand.

I haven't heard of the wand, "Actually get to the mailbox and SEND said Christmas cards" either! I am starting a new collection however...3 years worth of stuffed, addressed, and ready to be stamped and sent Christmas Cards!!!!

Thanks for the giggle ;)

OO Love those spring colors!

I can wear all except that very pink. But there sure will be punches.

I think I'll paint my craft room (or at least one wall) that spring green. love.

God also gave you a good ding with the spectacularly-funny-writing wand.

Love each and every one of your posts! Thank you for taking the time to share your prowess with us.

Have a blessed Christmas!
