twitterday: a hashtag project

Last Twitterday, I started asking about tagging tweets. This week, we're going to start something fun with our tags. If you're not on Twitter, I've done some checking, and you can participate too!

I'm in a color mood right now. As in, I'm thinking a lot about colors that I like...especially embroidery floss colors, because, well, you know me. Often I get so attached to a particular shade of floss that start to feel the color, and the color describes my mood or emotion. Does this sound silly? Perhaps.

But here's my thought. What if I wasn't the only one to do this? What if all of my embroidery floss loving blog friends shared their moods with floss colors too?
Here's how it works: Choose your floss mood color, then tweet it with the hashtag #flossmood. Example:

Today my #flossmood is DMC 3328!


Ugh. I'm feeling rather DMC 998 #flossmood

You can also use this tag on or in a blog post, or you can leave it here in a comment. This isn't a common phrase/tag, so we'll be able to find it easily.

This isn't restricted to DMC colors, but those are what I tend to have around. And one of the things that I like most about this is that we all get to look and see what color it is that you're feeling! (You can find the DMC color cards here.)

Come back on Monday, because I'll have the first of a few projects for expressing your #flossmood in real life!

Are you ready? What's your #flossmood?


  1. My instinct is that I'll often feel variegated.

    Today my #flossmood is most definitely DMC 125.

    Crisp and clean. Maybe it's because this is the first Saturday I've had in a long time that involves no cleaning. The house is clean, the sun is shining, and we have a whole day to play!

  2. Ugh. I'm pretty 310 today. :( Grrrrrrr!
    But at least you made me smile. hehehehe.

  3. What a great idea! :)

    I'm feeling like a 727. :)

  4. How fun! Today has been a 350--warm and cheery.
