The Colour Collaborative: February: Precious
The most precious things in life aren't ones that directly cost money. For me, they are time, memories, happy moments with the children.
Life can be quite full and overwhelming a lot of the time, making those quiet moments very precious. As the days and weeks fly by, it's important to try and fit in those good times whenever we can.
They don't have to be holiday moments, just a little time when the demands of the everyday world recede and life is stripped back to what's important. They don't have to last for hours, just a quiet time at home or a short walk together is enough.
There's often a blue or a green haze over my memories. Sky, sea, nature. The things that don't change too fast, the simple things that have been the same all my life, and that will still be the same after I'm gone. These are the places we choose to be together. The countryside, the seaside. Hours spent wandering, chatting, exploring. Precious times indeed.

What is The Colour Collaborative?
All creative bloggers make stuff, gather stuff, shape stuff, and share stuff. Mostly they work on their own, but what happens when a group of them work together? Is a creative collaboration greater than the sum of its parts? We think so and we hope you will too. We'll each be offering our own monthly take on a colour related theme, and hoping that in combination our ideas will encourage us, and perhaps you, to think about colour in new ways.
