52 Weeks of Color :: Week 38

Today is the vernal equinox, the official first day of fall. While I’m definitely a fan of summer, it’s nice when the blistering heat eases off, isn’t it? So, I figured why not mark the occasion with a bye-summer-hi-fall kind of palette.

This works as a transition color scheme because of how dark that teal is. It grounds the other lighter colors, which definitely feels more summer-y on their own. It also helps that the yellow is sliding closer to a mustard (or a yellow-green), which is a color you’ll see a lot of in the fall, versus a brighter yellow-orange.

So, if you’re looking to transition your own summer color schemes, add in darker or bolder shades if the other colors are on the softer side.

Happy fall!

Have you ever wanted something so bad you were beside yourself? Where you were equal parts anxious, exhilarated, and overwhelmed? That’s where I’m at right this very minute.

I got back from LA two weeks ago, and I know I owe you at least one email and a couple posts. I don’t have them, but there’s a good reason:

I’m trying to move back to California.

I say “trying” because several things need to come together before I can officially pull up stakes. And the biggest part of that is me securing full time employment. Researching and applying for jobs while in a completely different state has been challenging.

Which means that my mind is focused pretty much on that, and for right now, everything else needs to take a back seat so I can make this happen. I’ve been talking about this for years, and now is the time to make it happen (or give it one hell of a try).

It also means I need to be prepared to move at any time, so, come October 1st, I’m taking a hiatus from selling. So, if there’s an ebook you’ve been eyeing, grab it before September 30th because I’m closing that down until I can move and get settled.

As for blogging, the good news for you color lovers is that I do have palettes made and ready for the rest of the year. So, no worries there. Beyond that, I honestly don’t know how blogging will shake out. I know that I’d still like to chat with you, but the reality is posts may come a little more infrequently, if at all. I’m taking everything one day at a time.

That said, if you need me, I’m here. You can reach out to me directly here.

Keep your fingers crossed for me that I can make this happen!

Hey friends! I’m finally back in town, though, as always, I didn’t want to leave southern California. Sunny skies, good weather, good friends – yeah, I never want to leave.

I need some time to get back into the swing of things and switch my brain out of vacation mode. In the mean time, how have you been?
