Color Hunting in Alaska

I don’t consider myself an artist, but I do love having opportunities to express myself creatively. I enjoy pushing myself in simple, artistic ways.  Whether it’s just making something with my hands, creating a new recipe or playing with color, it helps me feel alive and energized.

We are still on our big road trip to Alaska. Our days are filled with exploring the gorgeous scenery that is at every turn. Yes, we are spending a lot of time in the car and showering a lot less, but we are creating priceless memories as a family. I know we are so privileged to have the time and the resources to do this as a family. Taking yourself away from the everyday responsibilities and schedules of life is so refreshing. It gives me time to clear my head, think and just catch my breath. And while I’m away from my studio, all my craft supplies, Pinterest, and even window shopping, I’m looking for ways to play with my creative side.

I find I’m using my phone and camera all the time to capture moments and scenes. So, as a little personal challenge, I’m giving myself little photo challenges.  Like picking a specific color to hunt for. We’ve definitely seen a lot of green (my favorite color). For the next couple of days, we are camping just outside Seward, Alaska.  This is a gorgeous little port town on the Kenai Peninsula with towering mountains on every side. Cobalt Blue is a color I keep playing with. We have been traveling with our new bright blue HP Pavilion 17″ notebook.  It’s been an awesome tool for researching campsites and points of interest, keeping in touch with our life that we’ve temporarily left behind and storing and sharing our loads of pictures we’ve been taking along the way. So, today I challenged myself to take this gorgeous shade of blue as inspiration and hunt for it in Seward, Alaska.

This new HP Pavilion notebook is more versatile and efficient with Windows 10 already loaded and ready to go. Windows 10 is just as familiar as an old friend, but even better.  You can keep all the areas of your life organized with a desktop for work and then one for home.  It has a great battery life and lots of storage. And you can only buy this specific edition on HSN.

Here’s some reasons why you should consider purchases your next laptop on HSN:
  • HP Pavilion 17” notebook Intel Quad-Core 8GB Ram, 1TB Hard drive
    with lifetime tech support that HSN provides
  • Bang & Olufsen audio built-in
  • Windows 10 Operating system
    Exclusive model for HSN
  • Available in 5 Colors – Silver, White, Blue, Red, Purple
  • $699.95 with Free Shipping and Handling
  • HSN Offers Flex Pay allows customers the ability to break the laptop
    price into several payments. They do not need an HSN credit card for
    this- it is with their own card. It’s like layaway, but better because we
    ship you the product right away. We are planning for 6 flex payments on
    this Laptop so customers can ‘Get it home for under $120” 
Maybe I can challenge you to find this gorgeous color where ever you are today. If you share on social media, be sure to tag me, I’d love to see cobalt blue through your eyes.
