With today's Grand Image email featuring a new Budget Edition (BED) image by Kathe Fraga we thought it would be interesting to post a blog by Kathe describing her new work, and popularity on pinterest & twitter!

"Through Twitter, I've met a wonderful group of designers, writers, artists, gardeners and more-and the conversations and the kind generosity of this group has been amazing. The ideas and opinions are endless.

And while Twitter is a great way to "talk," Pinterest is fantastic resource for sharing images-favorite flowers, favorite places, favorite colors. It's basically a collection of virtual "bulletin boards" organized by whatever topics you like."

Pantone Reveals Color of the Year for 2012: 
PANTONE 17-1463 Tangerine Tango

Dance into the New Year with this vivacious and appealing reddish orange

Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.

Has pantone created their own cross pollinated fruit??

Not dramatically different from last year’s Honeysuckle, this year’s color also draws inspiration from the tropics.
