Primas

You wanna hear something scary? I'm totally getting into those stupid Prima flowers. UGH!!! I told myself that I wouldn't buy into the hype. I said, Self, you don't NEEED those cute little overpriced glass bottles of flowers. So what if they look so pretty all lined up on a shelf? So what if those little paper flowers go on EVERYTHING? So what if I really like that simple blossom motif? Nope, Self, you don't need them.

Well, then I bought one jar for ONE specific project (which I haven't completed yet, btw). Then I made a card, and used a few. Then I wanted this other color scheme, so I got those. I lied to myself and said that between those two mixed bottles, one muted and one bright, I would have everything covered.

Well, then I did that last layout, and I needed some light blue, but I only had bright blue. So I got just one more bottle. Hey, it had pale yellow and white, bonus! NOW I was set, right?

Wrong. As I was working on my layout, I realized that I needed and absolutely had to have a few brown flowers. Well, brown is a neutral, I can use them on everything..... Oh, and I didn't even use my bottle of light blue blossoms! I borrowed a few from my friend because I had left mine at home!

So anyway, I am doing a layout for the store, and I am thinking, I need just one little thing here to finish it off... you know what I mean. That final detail that takes it from "okay" to "done", but right before you hit the "now there's too much crap on the page" stage. So I'm wandering around the store... wandering... wandering...

You know, I have this weakness for all things pink. I love pink. It's my signature color. So what do I wander by? You guessed it - a bottle of pink Prima flowers in various shades of pink. Absolutely perfect. Absolutely MINE!

I'm so weak.

That is totally how I was...never going to buy them...not needing to be "cool" like everyone else. BUT now I am really liking all their new stuff!! Such a problem!

Hah hah!!! Welcome to the dark side dearie!! I even had to eventually take them out of the cute bottles b/c I was...um... running out of shelf space to hold it in...

BUT upside is? there is NOTHING these don't go with. Like your little black dress!! PERFECT for everything! Enjoy!!! (you know they've got a contest running for the paint cans, yes? check out the website)

I know what you mean. I had bought some right before they were popular--I didn't even know I had some primas. (the ones I had bought weren't in the cute little bottle). I had them in my drawer and took them out one day and thought hey I was 'in' before they were in...before they came packaged so cute, they actually sold them by color. So I was able to get just the cream ones...I don't know if they do that anymore
