Something to Think About....

Researchers claim that watching children play or create 
gives insight to the true essence of the person.  I had not ever given this much thought until recently when I saw the quote above.  When I was a child I adored coloring.  I remember one Easter, my basket from the Easter Bunny was filled with art supplies and honestly, it is the only Easter Basket I remember.  My mother later told me she made a quick trip to the local drug store to pick up the contents.  In our small town there weren't that many places to shop. Just goes to show, it doesn't matter what you give to someone as long as you know the person well enough.  I spent hours painting, drawing and creating with those art supplies.  My favorite crayon was the magenta!  I can remember when it became a nub thinking how great it would be to be able to just buy the "replacement color" because it bothered me that the nub make my box look ugly! Science may be onto something because I still love magenta, fuchsia and anything close to that color.   What was your favorite crayon as a child? Is it still a favorite color today?  Did you like to color?

  1. I really liked the lighter pinks like, "thistle" a purplish pink,as a kid, which is now gone from the Crayola box. I still like pinks but prefer the warmer ones like "Carnation pink". I loved to color then and I still do but sometimes I just play with the crayons deciding which is my favorite while my daughter colors.

    1. I liked thistle too! The last time I bought a box of crayons I didn't really like the colors. Think I 'll go buy a box today and color! xoxox

  2. Boy did you spark memories! I have very vivid memories of sitting at the table and drawing squiggles and then coloring in the "bubbles" made by the lines. And what a thrill to look at that big box of crayons and see all the colors...the one I remember most is the gold that never colored well but looked so pretty as a crayon. Thanks for jogging my memory of pleasant times.

    1. I also wanted that gold to work better too Diane. Its fun to remember things like that isn't it?
