    Yay Me!

    what an accomplishment.. I was the anal person who flipped out when the colors were put in the wrong spot too.. I was an odd child. XD I had them sorted that way for a reason, and I didn't care that the name of the color was on the crayon, it didn't matter. >:/   but...

    Inside The Lines You Say? Sure...

    That is only so because I set out my own lines.And my own lines can be adapted all the time too, so staying inside them isn't really difficult at all...

    Coloring On My Own

    I used crayons to make my goofy drawings for a poem I would write on a piece of paper and fold in half so it looked like a card of love that I gave to my wife.  She, for some zany reason, loved these goofy cards and it always put a smile on her face.  She saved them all...

    Always Always Always.

    Ever since I was little and had coloring books, I was always sure to keep in the lines, and to use the appropriate color (i.e. Barbie's hair was always blonde, Minnie Mouse always had a pink bow, etc etc) I remember, it irritated the hell out of me when I let my cousins use my...

    Small Accomplishments

    I am not an artist.  One thing I can do, however, is keep my colours seperated by solid lines.  I'd not really considered this much of an accomplishment.  I find it interesting to watch my daughter, who turned five just over one month ago, still struggling to do...

    I hate the fact you can do something I've always wanted to do, but never seem to be able to.

    I Can But ...

    I do think colouring inside the lines is just too conventional and boring ... I say let's scribble and cross those lines ... as often as possible !!! Free your crayons and your mind will follow!

    I Can, But Why???

    Coloring outside the lines is so much better. You can make your own borders and your own rules.

    I Can

    I can, but I don't like to. It is cramped and I like to spread. The colors should relish in the freedom of a new page. But I can color in the lines. I don't enjoy it, but I do have that discipline....

    I Can...

    ...but I prefer to color outside the lines and to be different from others.  Staying inside the lines is just not my style.  I color outside the lines.  I think outside the box.  My reality is not black and white, as there is plenty of gray and many shades of...
