day five...if i had a million dollars...

100 ideas by keri smith::number three:
Buy something inexpensive as a symbol for your need to create,

(new pen, a tea cup, journal). Use it everyday.

last night, we finished supper
{homemade beef stew done in slow cooker...
another first for me...and biscuits that
were a little hard and flat...i'm not sure
what i did wrong with those...but there
were none left over so i guess they tasted
fine}
and i went to the store to look for something
that i could use...
would use
every day....
i waited for something to speak to me...
to jump out at me...
and it took awhile....
eventually, i picked up a pack of pens
pens i used to use
and remember liking how they would
glide
across the page...


and as i was leaving that aisle,
pens in hand
i passed the crayola aisle...
and suddenly remembered number 71
on my mondo beyondo grande list...
so i grabbed a box of 64 colors
and felt instantly happy and excited...

now i just have to find a coloring book
that makes me happy...
i'm thinking charlie brown...
or sesame street...
something old and quirky and fun...

{and...just so you know...
today the backhoe comes to break ground
for the concrete for our new building...for my
studio...squeal!!!!!!}

Great photos of the crayons...

I have a thing for stationary. And I am all about the pens. A good pen can make all the difference.

(Loving this 100 thing.)

Do you know that you are fast becoming my creativity hero. How can I not love a girl who loves to color? I get so excited at crayons and markers. I do. Which one is your favorite color? I love Periwinkle for the color and the name. When I was little I dreamed of naming my daughter Periwinkle. Or my cat. I didn't distinguish. I also completely love copper.
