Welcome To My Colorful World!

Welcome to my colorful world. I am a happy (most of the time!) wife, mom, MeMaw, artist, and art teacher. I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I also love to create, cook, nest, decorate, entertain family and friends, laugh, collect vintage stuff, snuggle my cats and dog, play outdoors, and so much more! In addition to all this, I also publish an online magazine with my dear friend, called Mermaids of the Lake. Oh, and I love a big cup of coffee with cream, a dry martini, red wine, blingy jewelry, pink lipstick, blue fingernail polish. I love color! Beautiful colors inspire, motivate, and move me!!! What's my favorite color? I can't choose. I love them all! Yellow, pink, red, turquoise, blue, purple, orange, green and every variation in between!

I Love this Colorful Quote!!!

I was searching for a quote a couple of days ago for my Mermaids of the Lake magazine's Facebook page, when I stumbled upon this one! I really love it so much, especially the last line, "And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination."

Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon.
A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crises 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.
~Robert Fulghum 

I really adore positive words and when asked what my favorite quote is, I have a difficult time choosing. It is the same for me with color. Every color is my favorite, depending on my mood at any given moment. Do you have a favorite quote or color?
