Yep! It's that time of year agin. Pink explosion is nearly here. As a designer I fight the Holiday themes I have to admit. Especially the color coordination part. ("Reeeeeed and Greeeeen"- yes I know!) But at PAPAYA we have never really struggled with pinks. In fact we often look up and wonder how the heck we got so cozy with this controversial hue.
Pink is just as controversial as Valentines Day itself! Haven't you all heard or said: "It's a made up Holiday to sell greeting cards!" Which is really kinda cute being that I now have a greeting card company! I resisted making Valentines for years. I used to protest until the hundreds of callers each year would share their positive feelings and authentic support of the holiday. I decided to put my love of pink to work. This year I'm feelin the Valentine spirit. Some years not so much. (in which case pull out old Sex n the City DVD's and commence the bon bon fest) It's always relative isn't it? But hey- I'll celebrate the good years when I can!
I've come to appreciate this holiday for female bonding, love or support too. Seems like mother's, Best Friends and children can really get the most out of this mixed emotion holiday. No matter what side of the fence you're on about it we all need a love boost now and then. Whether it's from a boss a friend or the love of your life- should you be so lucky. It's an opportunity to surprise people and turn those Valentine grinches into believers. Or a help put a little bandaid on some heartache. In which case the image below might be handy this year.
