Drakestail in 2015

We’re more than halfway through January, and well into 2015.  The holidays are now just a warm glow of memory, and it’s time to take on the new year.

Roxy is a near-perpetual traveller these days due to work. She is in Ottawa for a short time, and we got to have a business lunch on Sunday, catching up and doing a little planning. Fuelled by sushi and dim sum, we came up with some ideas, including some brainstorming on a new product line to come out this year. All I can say for now is that it’s going to be fabulous.

I’ve also been mulling over some goals for Drakestail this year and doing a little organizing. Not as exciting as product design but just as important.

Looking back, 2014 was a great year for us. I kept busy in the early months with the 100 Day Challenge.  It was a huge undertaking but I’m very proud of the work I produced.  The Exchange Uporium was a fantastic opportunity in Winnipeg’s trendy Exchange district, a gorgeous mix of handmade and vintage sellers. I participated in 5 different craft fairs, two new and three old favourites. The year wrapped up at the Boutique Pop Up Aylmer, a cozy temporary shop full of local handmade goods.

I’m looking forward to everything 2015 brings, and to having you, dear reader, with us for the journey!

Pantone 2015 Colour of the Year: Marsala

The Pantone Colour Institute is *the* name in colour trends. They produce gorgeous palettes in the spring and fall, and come out with a colour of the year for each year, drawn from the spring palette.  This colour ends up appearing just about everywhere, from fashion to paint and home decor.

Pantone Color Institute Marsala

Named after the fortified wine, Marsala is the 2015 colour of the year. It’s a deliciously earthy red. My favourite colour is red and I’m excited to see this colour as it makes its appearance in stores and on the runways.

True reds are hard to come by in gemstones. Dark carnelians come close to this colour, with their deep and earthy orangey reds. Poppy jasper is a brick red colour with small streaks of black and grey. Garnets are another great choice, often occurring with warm red tones. Tourmaline can also come in a deep warm red.

Of course, the colour is popping up already in a variety of products. I’ve put together a warm and earthy treasury from some of the loveliest items I could find in Marsala. I can’t wait to get a lip colour in Marsala. Where are you looking forward to seeing this colour pop up?
