It's a Blog! SewColormusing Joins the Family!

The first of my sewing-related blogs was Changing Your Clothes, covering anything having to do with making the most of clothes you already have: alterations, dyeing, repairs, wardrobe planning (via color palettes, natch), refashioning. Next in line: My Bratelier, which is focused only on sewing lingerie, including bras.

Start a new blog, of course! Help me welcome SewColormusing into the Colormusing family! It’s a bouncing baby...

blue color news Pantone Pantone 2016 Color of the Year pink Rose Quartz Serenity

Just in from the color gurus at Pantone: For 2016, there's not one, but two Colors of the Year! I present to you... Rose Quartz and Serenity! Here, I've included the same CMYK and hex code information that comes with every Colormusing palette. (Click on the image to see what Pantone has to say about their COTY choices.) I'm still trying to decide how I feel about these colors. To be honest, at first glance, I can't help thinking "baby pink/baby blue". (I'm guessing that's not what Pantone was aiming for.) But I'm reserving further judgment, because, for one thing,...

NEW: Save 50% with Color Palette Curated Collections!

Here's something brand-spanking-new this week: I'm curating collections of color palettes into sets of 3, at a fabulous price— just $5.95 per set, which saves you 50% versus buying 3 palettes separately!
