Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s Eve and are waking up this morning inspired for the New Year.

Today marks the start of my new project idea: The Kona Color of the Day Project. When I heard about the new Kona Colors being released last Fall, I did the math and realized there were 365 total colors (not counting special “of the year” colors) – one for each day of the year. Plus a bonus color as there are 366 days this year. I started to put my plan into motion.

Then, I saw that Robert Kaufman had their own idea, and made their own Kona Calendar for the year.

I had started to identify January and February days for color schemes, but threw those out when I saw the Robert Kaufman Calendar – and aligned with their plan.

So then I started on my plan – a design for each Kona Color. The challenge is trying to find the right design with the right Kona Color for the right month or season or holiday during the year. And I’ve gotten stuck along the way, but I am still chugging along – doing my best Dory impression, I keep swimming.

I will be posting the Kona Color of the Day Project on Instagram each day. Then maybe every 5-10 days I will post here for those days that have occurred recently, plus a possible monthly wrap up. Some of it I am still figuring out. But today I have the first day for you. They will also all be listed on Etsy so you can click the link for more information.

Follow me on Instagram for daily updates and the Kona Color of the Day, or follow me here for a periodic recap. As I go through the days and designs and Kona Colors, I get more ideas and it keeps changing – I am excited to see where it goes!
