Yellow - day one
February 16, 2009
I'm in a quiet mood so I'm going to start off slow. Pencils already sharpened, ready to do homework, write lists, doodle and draw. There is a lot of potential in that jar.
Here's the list of yellow week links. If I missed you, let me know and I will add you to the participants. I also started a flickr group - feel free to join. Have fun finding the bright spots in your day.
I'm in, too. Thanks for the idea.

Thanks so much for "hosting" this. I'm pumped for a little more yellow in my life. It's not one of my go-to colors so this week will be an exercise in appreciate it a little more.
Love the pencils, it's a before shot! A shot of pure potential.

I think you missed me-or maybe I was to late. Blog is country-chicken. If I'm to late that's okay, I will just post my yellow things and I'll be a little quicker next time to sign up. Thanks for inspiring everyone. Jackie

Oh, I just love the potential of a jar of crisply-sharpened pencils!

Maybe we should start a flickr group that we can all add our photos to?
Posted by: Allison | February 16, 2009 at 10:05 AM
shoot! I forgot to tell you I was doing this. I'll be participating too - lord knows there's enough yellow here in the lemon kingdom still. ;)
Rest today. Let your mind wander to your own projects. Just enjoy.

I've just spent an hour and a half looking at everyone's yellow. Should we do a Flickr group?

i would love to play, erin! i never think of yellow ~ it makes me look green ~ but i love the look of natural light, er, yellow. i guess they're the same thing! so this will be a challenge for me, since i'm not sure i own anything yellow myself. maybe the boys...
Posted by: maya | February 16, 2009 at 11:38 PM
