Pantone color of the year = Living Coral

Every year since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute has chosen a Color of the Year to reflect the spirit of the times for the year ahead. Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2019 is 16-1546 Living Coral, an animating and life-affirming coral hue. The engaging nature of 16-1546 Living Coral encourages us to have an optimistic outlook and engage in lighthearted activity. This is a playful, nurturing color found in our surroundings, and is one which provides us with both comfort and warmth as it inspires joyful pursuits. At Fine Stationery, we celebrate and embrace Pantone’s Color of the Year and all it embodies.

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, stated this about 16-1546 Living Coral: ‘Color is an equalizing lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities, and this is particularly true for Living Coral. With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanizing and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial Pantone Living Coral hit a responsive chord.’
Orange Coral Flat Card

Coral reefs around the world are living, ever-changing, colorful and beautiful. At Fine Stationery, we have incorporated the beauty of living coral into our products. Our Orange Coral Flat Cards allow you to keep in touch with friends and loved ones using this chic correspondence card. This orange card features a repeating white coral pattern that perfectly accents your text or monogram, which is printed at the top of the card. Our Orange Coral Square Sticker is accented by a white oval framed in a warm orange color, leaving ample space for your personalization. These stickers coordinate beautifully with the Orange Coral Flat Cards. For a truly elegant invitation, our Coral Shimmer invitations offer an exquisite experience in fine stationery.

Giving Thanks Well

Thanksgiving is a
joyful time of year when we remember and celebrate all the things we’re thankful for like friends, family, and loved ones. Maintaining a thankful mindset carries with it a host of mental, emotional, and physical benefits, and is the best way to truly enjoy life. If you are reading this, no matter what else is happening in your life you can appreciate the fact that you are alive and breathing, and be thankful for that.

During this season of thankfulness, we’re put in mind of the power and importance of being thankful and grateful more often and sharing that mindset daily, not just on Thanksgiving Day. In light of that, we’d like to share some quotes on thankfulness and being grateful to help inspire you to adopt and maintain a thankful outlook on life:

1.     "The unthankful heart discovers no mercies; but the thankful heart will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings.” -- Henry Ward Beecher
2.     “Gratitude doesn’t change the scenery. It merely washes clean the glass you look through so you can clearly see the colors.” -- Richelle E. Goodrich
3.     “We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives. As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” -- John F. Kennedy
4.     "Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
5.     "Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good.” -- Maya Angelou
6.     "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” -- Albert Einstein
7.     "Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy and change ordinary opportunities into blessings." -- William Arthur Ward
8.     "Appreciation can change a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.” -- Margaret Cousins
9.      “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues but the parent of all others.” -- Marcus Tullius Cicero
10.  "Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses." -- Alphonse Karr

There is always something to be thankful for, even if you just had the worst day ever. At least you know that your “worst day ever” will be over once the day is done, and tomorrow marks another chance to have the “best day ever”! The Thanksgiving season is the perfect time to show your friends and family just how much you appreciate them. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on gifts to get your message across; write a heartfelt note, send a thank you card

make an unexpected phone call and invite a friend to share Thanksgiving dinner with you and your family. The point is to think outside yourself to all those wonderful people who have made your life better and let them know that you appreciate and acknowledge all that they do for you.

If you’re having trouble, focusing on the positives in your life instead of the negatives is a good way to change your mental outlook. One way to accomplish this kind of change is to start the day off by making a list of what you’re grateful for and what you have to look forward to that day. If you can’t think of anything to look forward to, before you go to bed at night try writing down the accomplishments you had throughout the day, no matter how small or insignificant they may seem. Remember, sometimes changing your mindset is as simple as focusing on the roses instead of the thorns.
