I was going to name this entry with our "prom song" but I don't remember what it was that year.

Right now I am wishing I still had my prom dress from senior year. It was a beautiful shade of blue, but the wrong size because somehow, at the age of 18, I still didn't know how to buy things to properly fit my body. I walked around in high school wearing clothes that were way too big for me. No wonder I didn't date until college! But if I still had the dress I could snip out a swatch and use it in my current project- a shadowbox. I need that exact shade of blue. I guess I will have to flip through magazines and catalogs until I find the color I need and just stick to paper materials.

*Edit: for my mum. I am being playful about my high school self. My clothes were bad, but so were most people's in the 90's. And my prom dress was literally about three or four sizes too big. I was holding it up all night! :) I love you too.

You really need to stop putting your 'high school' self down. There was absolutely nothing wrong with you or the way you dressed. You were beautiful then and you are beautiful now. Really!
I love you. :-)
