"In every end, there is also a beginning."
-Libba Bray, A Great and Terrible Beauty
Boo. It's over. So sad to bid adieu to The Summer of Color, 2013.
Yet, as the quote above states, with every end, there is also. . . um . . . but I digress. . . . First let me say, You. Are. Awesome. Your artwork, the connections that you made and the support you gave one another throughout our colorful Summer is nothing less than spectacular. As a whole, we had an average of nearly 140 weekly participants, a large and fabulously supportive Facebook group and a drool-worthy stream of photos in our Flickr pool. And the artwork! From handmade books, to journal pages, scrapbook layouts, altered art, tags, photographs, greeting cards and jewelry, oh my! It's amazing to see what a little color prompt can lead to. Thank you for sharing your time, heart and art with us: I so appreciate you.
And More About Sharing:
Please know that if you missed a prompt and would still like to give it a go, you can certainly continue to add your links to the widget below each week's post. I promise they do get viewed throughout the year. On that note, if you haven't uploaded your photos to our Flickr pool yet, it's not too late. I'd love to see your work there as well. Also, many have asked about our Facebook group and wether or not it will remain open. The answer is a big "Yes!" Although our event has come to a close, the Facebook page will not. You can continue your color conversations whenever the mood strikes, we'll be here.
Now, What About Last Week's Winner?
Oh, yes, that! The lucky winner of our last random drawing is:

I have it right here. Isn't it pretty? As a thank you for your support and SOC spirit, this is for you. Please feel free to add it to any of the social media sites you wish. (I hope you love it as much as I do).
Okay Now, Spill It!
Alright, you know I wouldn't let you down. As you may have already noticed, there is another SOC on the horizon! I. Am. Thrilled. to announce that the party will kick off again next Summer:
More color prompts, creativity and connections. All less than a year away. Get ready for The SOC 4: Smudge, Splash & Pop. Want to know more? Not to worry. You only have to wait 'til June for all the dirty details (oh come on, that was funny ;) . . . .
Until we meet again,
