Color Inspiration


The color purple affects people by being uplifting, calming, and encourages creativity. I think that sounds like some great inspiration for a Monday. I hope you find joy, peace, and creativity in this new beginning of the week!

Purple is one of those colors that I never think of using - I tend to gravitate more towards the blues and pinks....but every time I see purple used I love it! I think I need to try a little of it in my life - you're right, it really is uplifting!

I also find purple so calming and relaxing...I adore that hair-flower! Happy Tuesday, sweetie
