Inspire Me Thursday – Crayons
When I saw this week’s Inspire Me Thursday prompt I couldn’t help smiling. I had a lot of happy memories with crayons when I was little. I dug up my old grade school crayons and brought them to the studio. There were many broken pieces and a lot of colors were missing but some old favorites were still there – salmon, periwinkle, goldenrod and bittersweet.  I felt like a kid again 🙂

Flower Girl


Immediately there sprang up a flower, shaped like a tulip, and as the petals slowly opened,
there in the midst of the flower sat a pretty little maiden.
