My hands are covered in crayon and killing me. No, I did not just play a game of tug o' war with a three year old, I just colored in a page from a coloring book...or a coloring book clip art page as I do not own a coloring book (wish I did).
As I've written about in previous entries (if you are a loyal reader..if not.welcome! I'm excited to have more than 1) I've been lacking for creative inspiration. I own a book called The Crafter's Devotional by Barbara Call. It's pretty awesome and it gives me a lot of inspirational ideas when I'm fresh out. One of it's suggestions for overcoming creative block is to color with crayons.
So, I went online and found a website that allows me to print out a coloring page (clipartandcrafts.com). I printed out some celtic circles. Luckily, because I'm sort of a weirdo, I still have crayons in a ziplock bag from when I was little...and I for some reason brought them when I moved into my new apartment. Coloring is actually very calming. When I was little my mom used to take me to all the PTA meetings and concerts, etc for my older brothers and all she had to do was give me a piece of paper and a crayon...I never said a word or complained. Sat quietly drawing and coloring for hours. That's exactly what I did tonight. I colored for hours and hours.
Here is the blank page:
And here is my completed creation:
Enough being creative for tonight....definitely time for bed!
