Today would have been my mother’s 81st birthday. There is not a day when I don’t think of her with either extreme sadness and loss or with a smile in my heart. I suspect her absence will always be felt and I count my blessings that I had such a person in my life.
It is fitting then that today marks the start of a new collaboration that my Mum would have loved. Today (actually tomorrow US time) is the launch of Oh The Color – a new blog from friend, talent and confidant Brandi from Brandi Girl Blog. I began to know Miss Brandi who knows where and our mutual love of colour and design has made us great friends that have never met.
Miss Brandi conceived Oh The Colour as both an inspiration source and colour look book. Each week day we post a single image based on one colour. At the end of each week Brandi turns our weekly colours into a palette. She has brought on 3 contributors, of which I am one. There is the wonderfully talented Roni from Bad Jones Rising and the super creative Kerry from Kab’s Creative Concepts. I’m truly honoured to be included with such a talented line up. My first post will go live on Tuesday (US time) and then I’ll be posting each Friday from next month.
My Mum would have approved.
