Is it just me, or has this week whizzed by!? The days seem to have been rolled into one big mass of creative thoughts that have me feeling giddy at the possibility of it all! There have been many an epiphany this week concerning my creative path and those sudden moments of realisation followed by a tiny gem of a crystal clear thought are just the best! I wish I could tell you more just now, but when these thoughts manifest themselves into something more tangible I know you will love the results!

In the meantime lets enjoy today's autumn flower themed colour palette. Muted pastels are always a go to favourite at this time of the year. I did find a wee but of earthy peach to combine with similarly earthy pinks and a few rainy day blues. The rusty ochre and cool mocha make it a very earthy palette but with a wee hint of pink lavender and eucalyptus blue-greens they keep it feeling fresher. This palette is definitely reflecting my thoughts today - 'yes I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of autumn but I'm happy to admit to myself that it's not quite here yet! Quite often I see or create palettes and am happy just to be absorbed by the pretty colour combinations in that moment, but every so often it's good to really examine why I am drawn to those colours. It doesn't have to lead to anything earth-shatteringly profound, like today it's just a simple thought about the changing season.

Happy Friday!

Emma, x

    1. Thank you my dear friend, you will be among the first to know when I have news to share :)
      These colours do remind me of you and your gorgeous work, I would love to see you create this palette with natural colours. That would be wonderful!
      A wonderful weekend to you too!

  2. Thanks for sharing that interview with YoKoo, it's the sort of thing that stops you in your tracks, I've been thinking about her all day. Inspiring is the word I guess but I think it's something different..such a strong identity. Um... must come up with a word.

  3. Emma, I am very much looking forward to learning more about this good mystery that you be revealing soonish.

    Meanwhile, I cannot thank you enough about the link to the YoKoo interview. For most of this past year, I've been knitting all sorts of hats and scarves and mitts, hoping to launch my own shop this autumn. As I realize that autumn is here, I truly welcomed what YoKoo had to say. I also thank you for the joy, inspiration and information that your posts always offer your readers.


  4. that you "will" be revealing, of course. My enthusiasm to send a message trumped my proofreading.


  5. very much my cup of tea...just love the colors
