Focus on Life Week 8: Capture colour

Throughout February, Sally's been trying to dispel cabin fever... so this week's prompt reads:


For the last week in February, we will be focusing on something that can snap me out of cabin fever and hopefully you too! Bring on the colour! Capture colour in all its vivid brilliance!

I was going to photograph some paints/crayons, but then this arrived in the post yesterday from the very lovely Lynn



I just adore her doodle birds, and look what's inside



A riot of colour with postcards, envelopes and even stamps! What a sweetheart :)

There is nothing better to chase away cabin fever than receiving unexpected gifties from blogfriends full of thoughtfulness and colourful creations!

And if you'd like to receive some happy mail, there's still time to enter this week's Giveaway for this colourful wee notebook



There are more photos and info on the Giveaway post here, where you can leave a comment for a chance to win. I'll draw the winner tomorrow (Sunday 23 February) at 11am GMT.

Looking forward to seeing how others have captured colour this week!

  6. Doodle birds...cute! I guess I did not realize how color could brighten the day, until I saw this colorful post. What perfect timing for the blogland mail to arrive. It is the time of year to put away the grey, navy, brown and black and bring out the hot pink, lime green and electric blue!
