Think Pink

Do you know that, when a saying which is not particular for you or your family, keeps popping up? That is what happened here this last weekend. We did a lot of riddles, not even in English, but over and over someone said  as a hint : ‘Think Pink’.

That is what I had in mind this morning. I wanted to do something challenging. Something I hadn’t done before, or which was out of my comfort zone. I already knew what I wanted to make and ‘Think Pink’ was challenge enough for me today. Pink is not really one of my favourite colours. I hardly ever use it and I don’t have much pink stash.

A while ago I got this address book which I think is quite ugly. It is some fake leather brownish and just the look of it is so awful! But I received it from one of my boys, so I had to keep it. Ever since I got it, I wanted to make a cover for it, so that is what I did, a pink cover.

So I took the book,

grabbed my pink stash,

and made a cover.

Not only a lot of pink, but also a lot of flowers. That’s enough!! Both are not my cup of tea and I don’t really know what to think of this, whether I like it or not.

Groetjes, Dorien
