The excitement? The pure joy of receiving a Crayola Box of 64 (yes! SIXTY FOUR) beautiful, crisp, delicious new crayons????
It's raining here today and one of the memories of being a little girl that I will forever have is snuggling in with my fresh new crayons and a coloring book that awaited the bursts of color I had in store for it♥
Awww, the magic awaits! The possibilities endless!
I found this wonderful quote by Robert Fulghum:
Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air - explode softly - and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth - boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap, either - not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.
What a brilliant idea, don't ya think?
Sitting at work, wishing I was at home, curled up on a couch with a tv tray, 64 colorful friends and a new book to adorn :)
Have a great weekend!
