Looking for the Sew Mama Sew Give Away Day post?

I’m joining with hundreds of other blogs and participating in the Sew Mama Sew Give-Away Day. My give-away is a totally hand-sewn pin cushion. If you’d like to enter please click here. Good luck!

I don’t know what’s more sickly, this colour or the garbage written about it

According to Pantone the colour for 2011 will be Honeysuckle Pink! If you visit the link you’ll see all sorts of marketing jargon and treacly prose about this colour. According to their press release “Energizing Honeysuckle Lifts Spirits and Imparts Confidence to Meet Life’s Ongoing Challenges”. Really?

The press release continues “Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.” A colour can do all that?

Sorry Pantone, I don’t buy it.  As a copywriter I know you have to write something to promote your choice for “Colour Of the Year” but in my humble opinion I think you should tone down your prose a little. We’re not really as gullible as you’d like think we are.

Oh well that’s my rant for today. 🙂 Please feel free to give me your opinion.
