It Might Be Pointless, But I Love It


YEAH- I MADE THAT!!! I know, I'm super cool. You don't have to tell me.
Okay you can maybe tell me a few times. Because I obvi deserve it. HOW BADASS IS THAT PLAID?!?!?!

I have a new favorite website! My love for Pinterest still runs deep, but I just stumbled upon this website, ColourLovers, today and I can't stop playing around with it! Usually, I'm the girl that makes fun of people who spell color with a "u" but I'm totes making an exception for this website.

The concept of the website is simple enough- it's like Pinterest, but for colors. On the site you can name colors that no one else has named on the site before, color design your own patterns, create seamless patterns, and define color palettes. It actually doesn't sound that fun, but once you get into the groove, it's kind of spectacular. It sucks up time like crazy. You thought Facebook was a good website to go on if you want to forget that you're an actual breathing, living, human being? Well this website is that times 100. I just lost my entire afternoon to this website, and I'm pretty happy about it. My writing skills are failing me here because I feel like I'm not conveying the awesomeness. My favorite part of the website is the pattern feature. They give you a pattern- say, plaid- and you define the color palette used in the pattern. It allows you to create the perfect plaid of your dreams! That's like... something I've been trying to find all my life. I have yet to figure out what I could possibly do with all of these patterns, but I'm sure I'll figure out something.

For now, it's a nice little creative brain exercise. Get in the game!
