And I’m sick of it already.

9 Dec

Today, Pantone announced its 2011 Color of the Year. Drum roll please…

It’s Honeysuckle! 18-2120. Honeysuckle? Would you even know what color that was if I didn’t post the sample above? I had to look it up.

I will continue to use the 2010’s Color of the Year, 15-5519 (a.k.a. Turquoise, seen just below) faithfully up until the 31st. And probably after that in place of Honeysuckle. Not my cup of tea.

{Note to students: if you like it, use it! I once told a class that I didn’t like purple, and everyone avoided it for months.}

Oh no! There are only 22 days left to use turquoise!

And did you know that you can get a Pantone Visa? I didn’t.

You can use that Pantone Visa to buy this lovely set of Pantone coffee mugs. Okay, I think I’m done now.

    Wow. I’m not a fan of that colour… at all.

      I know. I secretly want them. The Visa card? Not so much.

    I bought one of those mugs at Pop Deluxe! They were on sale after Maxwell Street Days, so I picked up Process Blue C, but only because they didn’t have 212 C.

      Good to hear from you, Taine! And that is a super store.
