Not a typo, I just love color.
I like to encourage people to be creative in whatever way possible. Some say they just aren’t creative and leave it at that. Some just say they don’t have time, then others have the “I’m not good” attitude. Whatever the excuse, I try to pull it out of them. Fabhueary was my first attempt at trying to extract someone’s creative juices via social media.
2 main reasons why I chose a color adventure for the month :
- The dreaded V-Day.
Since Valentine’s Day is on the 14th, February is often welcomed with “love” on the mind. I’ve never bought into the hype…EVER! I’d much rather someone do something nice for me any other day of the year. It screams obligation, not love.
- Something I do love? COLOR!
Given my affinity for colors, I transformed the month of February into the month of Fabhueary on Instagram. During this month, I challenged a good friend to photograph and post images containing her favorite color. Not only did I see it as good practice in finding beauty in your surroundings, but it was a guarantee that I’d be seeing something pretty floating through my feed.
My hue of choice was green, hers blue. For me, snapping photos of green was a cinch. I’ve been obsessed with color for a while, so this was a practice I was used to. Half way through my month of exploring hues, I switched my game up and tried to find beauty in my least favorite color…orange.
Orange proved to be a bit more difficult, but I enjoyed the challenge. Surprisingly, the month-long color exploration ended up being much more enjoyable for me than I thought it would be. Fabhueary may have been the first time I was ever really excited about posting to a social media platform.
