Week 32 Color Reveal {Brooke}

I am sooooo sorry I am late revealing this week's color! I really have not excuse, just forgot yesterday was Monday. Well this week we are on week 32 which means we are halfway through the box of 64 crayons!!! I don't know about you, but I feel pretty proud of myself for sticking with this project to it's halfway mark! However, I almost didn't make it...I searched and searched for this week's color, CADET BLUE is not really blue at all but like a blueish, grayish, purplish shade...I'm still not certain I succeeded in matching this crazy shade of blue, but I came pretty close....

I thought the bulb in  the flash of my antique brownie was a pretty close match, but after taking the picture and after editing it seems to be a little more on the purple side, but in person it's not as vibrant and has more of the blue hue....I tried and I like the photos I took so I guess I'm content with my find! I hope you all find this color easier than I did!

I wanted to remind you all that we are changing the linkups a little....Sunday the linkup for CADET BLUE will open as usual and we will have a weekly favorite for FOREST GREEN . However, on Monday when I reveal week 33's color I will also open up week 33's linky. So this week you will have two link ups and both will remain open until Saturday the 20th. Then Sunday the 21st we will have a weekly favorite for week 32 and week 33 as well as a vote off for weeks 29-32. Then Monday the 22nd will be week 34's color reveal AND link up, this is how we will continue until the end of the box. I know that many of you already have your color and blog post a few days after I reveal the color so I thought this way you can link up as soon as you have the color!

Good luck color hunting!


  1. This was a hard color but I think you did a really creative thing! I love old flash bulbs (it really does make me appreciate all the trouble my parents and family went to get flash shots at Christmas!) Thanks Brooke, It's been a great experience!

  2. I have a request. Is there any way to keep the link open until Sunday with the new format? With this new format, it's going to be difficult for anyone who works a full time job with regular weekday hours to participate each week, especially as the days grow shorter and there is less light in the evening. Often, even now, I am still looking on the weekend, and some weeks I'll now just have one day (Saturday) to find the color and post it.

    Thanks for considering this.

  3. Still thinking...or maybe, if you want to close the link on Saturday, just announce the new color on Sunday rather than Monday. I really enjoy this project, and the new format is going to make this difficult for me to continue, or at least, linking up with you.

  4. This is going to be hard! Nothing comes to mind so I guess I'm at the mercy of chance this week. :-)

  5. Great find!! I have loved doing this project. It has been something constant in a time when everything is hectic!
