PANTONE COLOUR OF THE YEAR 2017

Pantone´s new colour of the year 2017 is quite unexpected and surprising.
After last years Serenity and Rose quartz this years colour will be the bright yellow-green shade of "Greenery".

 
Wow, this brings nature back to us. And the colour pick fits surely in a certain kind of way. Pantone wants us to revive, restore and renew with this colour, a reconnection we seek with nature and more. This can only be good these days.
The world changes and nature helps us getting along with it. 20 minutes outside in the woods and our inner stress is down to zero for a while.


I guess, it will only be a matter of time until the fashion, interior and beauty design industrie starts picking up "Greenery" in their products. I´ll open my eyes and watch it coming. When I look at it I desperately want to go outside into the green. So let´s open up for buying a new dress, nailpolish or living-room colour in bright green this year.
Greenery greetings,

CHALLENGE PATTERN-MEETS-SPIRIT #4

Yesterday we went ice-skating on our tiny lake in town. First we had to get rid of all the snow on the frozen water with shovels and brooms. It took us longer than we thought and my arms still hurt today. What an effective work-out. The kids couldn´t wait to open the skating-season. It was so much fun.
I guess, the lake will have company all week long now.

Today the kids have school and work all day so I was able to have time in my creative room. I made a new design for my challenge which came to my mind yesterday evening. I had to sketch it quickly before bed-time and today I made some artwork out of it.


Never stop looking up at the stars. Never stop reaching for them, for your dreams and your believes that they will come true. If this is what you do, you will reach everything in life you dream of.
Have a wonderful day.

PATTERN-MEETS-SPIRIT-CHALLENGE #3

A warm and still snowy hello to all of you!
Right now there are so many magical things happening I had to create a design for it.
First of all I was booked as a coach for a teacher staff training, which worked out fine.
After that I was able to write an article for the german magazine "Natur und Heilen" and it will be printed in September`17.
Things start coming together and I feel so blessed and thankful.
So here´s my wonderful design for it.


I believe we all have magic inside of us. Magic talents and potential. Many of us still don´t know about their inner treasures but once you have found them, you cannot stop using them for good.
Have a lovely day,

PATTERN-MEETS-SPIRIT-CHALLENGE #2


Hello and a wonderful Tuesday to all of you out there.
It is snowing here in Germany and it´s freezing cold. We gather inside around our fireplace in the evenings with a mug of tea munching the last left-over cookies from Christmas.
This week I worked on my Pattern-Meets-Spirit-Challenge again. I like this quote so very much. And I desperately wanted to do a fishy design in combination with these lovely waterish colours (except the yellow). I guess, it looks more like a summer design. Maybe my soul can´t wait for the sun, the warmth, the ocean. I´d love to beam myself to the south coast of Thailand right away.

The quote of my challenge is a reminder for all of us to go on a hunt for all the treasures we have inside of us. I am talking about our inner talents, potential, force, light. It is so important to know who we are so we can start living a life we are dreaming of.
Have an awesome day,

MY PATTERN-MEETS-SPIRIT-CHALLENGE 2017

Happy New Year to you. May 2017 bring love, light, happiness, wealth, lightness, joy and peace to you and your loved ones.

Today I started my challenge for this wonderful year.
I call it "MY PATTERN-MEETS-SPIRIT-CHALLENGE 2017". The plan is to design patterns throughout this year combined with conscious quotes I love.
Here´s #1: Every day is a fresh start.


I want to challenge myself in getting better and braver when designing. And I want to fill my portfolio with wonderful, colourful patterns with spirit and awareness.
If you have a wonderful quote, feel free to send it to me and I´ll see if I can make a wonderful design out of it.
Have a wonderful day,
