How far back in your life do you remember? I remember a recurring dream I had when I was 3 or 4. We lived in a very small house that had a tiny living room with a steep, narrow, slightly spiral staircase at one end. In the dream I stood at the top of the stairs, with a large crown on my head, while wearing rather large bloomers (my goal in life was to become Queen). I would fly down the stairs and walk right up the living room wall. I walked up the living room wall almost every night, I believe.
When I was 5 my parents bought their first home and I remember visiting the house during the building process. I have many memories of that house, as our family lived there for 4 years, my first years in school. Before we moved in my mother had me pick the color of my room, my OWN room and the ceiling light fixture, too. The color I picked was a bright pink, slightly darker than pepto and the light fixture had cowboys on bucking horses, throwing lassos, etched into the surface. I was so into Zorro, Roy Rogers and Hop-along Cassidy. (I also had recurring dreams that I WAS Zorro, no National Velvet for me!) A friend said that my first room is a true picture of my (lifelong) personality….all grrl with a rough edge of a cowboy at heart.
I enjoyed making the Project Spectrum postcard over the weekend and also looked around my house to find what I could in my everyday life that was pink or red. My house is mostly gray, the furniture black and highlights of color here and there. Not much in the way of bright colors can be found. Laura had a fun post last week of all the red things in her life. So, I'm making this into a meme. What can you find in your home that is red and pink, the PS colors for March?
(*Thanks Kim for the chocolate!)

Kristi sent the most wonderful prizes for a comment contest I won on her blog. She wrapped all the little goodies in pink and red paper. Just look at the little lamb with a pink rose on its neck (and she's holding some Bert's Bees lip balm). It was so much fun to unwrap each item and find out what treasure was inside. Each piece was hand picked to help me have some fun with Project Spectrum. There is a scented candle, a little soap purse, tiny pink sticky notes, and a large notebook to keep track of ideas. I love the "M" stamp and the red stamp pad and also, the can of caramel chocolates so I can munch while I create. The tiny Zen garden is so fun and unexpected! It's something I've always wanted to have on my desk! It's such a thoughtful and lovely package Kristi!
Kristi has a set of post card templates that might be helpful if you are making a PS Postcard. And she is a sock designer, too so check out her patterns because she's having sale! Kristi is very talented and creative and she teaches on-line classes.
Think I'll go create and have some fun!
