Hey guys! Welcome back to the normal Monday grind. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling awfully grumpy about it. I’d gotten kind of used to sleeping in, living in my pjs, and only leaving the house when absolutely necessary over this past week. It was so nice to spend time with family and relax, but taking care of this pile work and emails just can’t wait any longer. How about you, how was your holiday break?

I thought this warm yellow color palette might help brighten my serious case of the Mondays. I don’t know if I’m cured just yet, but I definitely like the vibe. Have a nice week, guys!

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a nice weekend! Ours was pretty lovely. Sean’s parents came to see us, and we all went to the Nutcracker at the Pennsylvania ballet. This was one of my winter highlights last year and this year too. Eva wasn’t 1000% mesmerized like she was last year, but she still enjoyed it thoroughly. After the ballet, we went to visit Santa at Macy’s Santa land. This was a pretty huge mistake and I wouldn’t ever go there to see Santa again, but Eva was excited to see the jolly man in red (despite the 1.5 hr wait). Sunday morning we went to brunch and decorated a gingerbread house.

Ever since I took this photo, I’ve been feeling really inspired by the many shades of green. I wanted to explore that this week with a touch of swanky gold. This palette feels just perfect for the season if you ask me! Have a nice week!

color me monday: 2015 pantone color of the year marsala!

Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was a nice one! Ours was pretty quiet, in a very good way. We spent Saturday at my parents so my weirdo husband could go hunting in the rain. However, Eva and I had other plans. We spent the entire day inside reading books near the fireplace. Sunday we headed home to ten to the usual weekend chores and errands, and had a delicious dinner at a friends house to finish off the weekend.

Have you guys heard the news? Pantone’s color of the year for 2015 is Marsala! Neutrals and earth tones seem to be on trend for this coming year, and I for one really like it. I thought pantone’s pick of radiant orchid last year was pretty meh, but they’ve redeemed themselves with this pick. Marsala is vibrant, but not overly saturated. I think it’s a versatile and interesting choice, way to go Pantone. What do you think?

Hey Guys, happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend. I did very little over the past few days. I’ve been sick for almost two weeks now, and I really needed to take it easy. I drank tea, slept in, caught up on my favorite tv shows, and started my online christmas shopping. It was kind of awesome. Today I’m actually taking the day off to chaperone a field trip to the Museum of Natural History with Eva’s preschool class. I’m excited to spend the whole day with eva, her teachers and classmates, and all those dinosaurs!

I am seriously digging this week’s color palette. It’s loosely inspired by an outfit that I put together last week starring my new favorite pair of burgundy skinny jeans. I love how it’s a bit muted, but still dramatic. I hope you all have a lovely week, and PLEASE….don’t forget to enter all the fantastic giveaways from last week. They’ll be running through this holiday week, ending on 12/1 through 12/5. Time is on your side, but don’t forget!

Friday custom camera strap giveaway with fotostrap!

fotostrap1
TGIF, my people! We’re wrapping up a week of color with one last killer giveaway. Today’s contest comes to us from an awesome little company called fotostrap. They create absolutely beautiful camera straps from high quality materials, right here in the USA. They are available in a vast range of colors and you can even add a monogram, logo, or expression to the leather shoulder strap. One last thing worth mentioning about fotostrap is they give 10% of their proceeds to charity, specifically a charity called fotolanthropy. They are a non-profit that gives portrait sessions and short films to inspiring people who are overcoming adversity. Beautiful and charitable all rolled into one, that’s definitely my kind of company! I’m already jealous of whoever is lucky enough to win this one! You’ll find the giveaway widget after the jump, and have a nice weekend!

Thursday $100 gift card giveaway with moo!

Visit www.blog.cleanlinestudio.com and enter the $100 gift card giveaway with moo!

Happy Thursday, my dears! If you are a designer, blogger, photographer, entrepreneur, or business person of any kind, I’ve got the giveaway for you! Today our friends at moo are joining in a week of color by giving away $100 gift certificate to their store! I still remember when I first heard of moo. Around 2008, My musician roommate at the time used them to print some stickers and mini cards for her budding act. As a designer and small business owner, I see (and appreciate) kind of a lot of business cards, so it’s no small feat that they have stuck with me for nearly 8 years. Moo makes way more products today than they did back then. I’m especially into their luxe collection for business cards, available in several sizes. These are super sturdy and have a “fill color,” which gives the effect of edge painting without the big fat price tag.

So, for today’s giveaway, sky is the limit when it comes to color. Moo will print whatever colors you can dream up as stickers, flyers, postcards and so much more. With new years just around the corner, new business cards are near the top of my to-do list. I hope this giveaway gives you the motivation you might need if you;re in a similar boat! You’ll find the widget to enter this giveaway after the jump!

color me monday: ONE HUNDRED TIMES!

100 color me monday posts from www.blog.cleanlinestudio.com

One hundred color me monday posts! I can’t quite believe it! When I started this blog nearly 2.5 years ago, I didn’t have any clear expectations of what it would become. Color Me Monday was the first ongoing series I created. It’s the only one I’ve really stuck with, and it’s consistently one of my most popular posts.

Today I wanted to give myself a little pat on the back,  and give you guys a great big thank you (I’d hug you if you were here with me, so just imagine a big warm excited hug too)! Thank you for your likes, shares, and pins. Thank you for your gushing twitter comments, blog comments and ceaseless encouragement. It’s such a gift to share something that I LOVE doing week after week and be met with your great big colorful enthusiasm. Whether you’re new to this little blog or you’ve been around since the start, thank you so very much for your support. It personally means the world to me, and it also means great big things for the future of this blog.

In celebration of 100 weeks of color me monday, we’ll be mixing things up a bit next week. I have FIVE (yes you read that correctly, FIVE) incredible giveaways going on next week. I’ve partnered with some fantastic sponsors to help celebrate this 100 post-aversary with A WEEK OF COLOR! I’m going to keep the giveaway prizes secret until their individual launch day, but just know that I’ve hand selected companies and products that share my love of color. If you win, you’ll have a huuuuge range of color options to choose from. You’re welcome to sign up for one, some or all of the giveaways. There’s no limit on entries, but I do hope that you’ll help me by sharing with all of your color-loving friends. Have a great weekend, thank you again, and get prepared for an epic WEEK OF COLOR!
