2017 Color of the Year: Greenery

Every year, Pantone selects a color of the year.  This symbolic color selection is a snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.  This year’s Color of the Year is Greenery 15-0343.

Here is how Pantone describes this color:

A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.

Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront – it is an omnipresent hue around the world.

A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.”

Towards the end of 2016, I created this custom simplewear box set with the request of designing the set based on a little turtle.  Little did I know, my color choice would be so on point with 2017’s color trend.

Christmas Music & English Bulldog Shaped Sugar Cookies

To get into the holiday spirit, Bumble Bee and I played Christmas music this weekend, while baking English Bulldog shaped sugar cookies. Well, I baked, while Bee was nestled all snug in his bed, while visions of sugar plums danced in his head.  🙂

I found this adorable English Bulldog cookie cutter on Amazon last week and I immediately had the urge to bake sugar cookies.

Here’s how they turned out. Definitely gives a new meaning to the saying, “You’re so cute, I can eat you!”

I thought this cookie looked the most like Bumble Bee. The rest of the batch looked slightly overweight or almost hippo like. LOL!

Hope you’re all enjoying the holiday season so far!
