It has been somewhat a tradition here that I share with you the Colour Of Year, as decreed by Pantone. :)
The colour Emerald is described as lively, radiant and lush - a colour of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony. You can read more at Pantone.

I love colours. I've always loved colours. There is no better way to explain this obsession with colours than that (especially as a crafter) I pay very close attention to colour-combinations and how one colour plays off another. In many cases, how one uses colours and colour-combinations can literally make or break a design.
I seldom use green in my creations. Not that it's not a beautiful colour - I just veer towards the blues, indigos and violets of the colour spectrum. In honour of Emerald being the Colour Of 2013, I shall endeavour to use it more in the coming year. And you shall see it all here. :)
