I made a run to the superstore today. Back-to-school displays are a magnet for me. I bought a composition book with grid pages for quilt designing, my favorite gel pens in black ink to last the year (I am always misplacing them), and the same pens but in pretty-colored ink for my to-do lists. I avoided buying crayons, but I did open a box so I could drink in their beauty and breathe deeply of their one-of-a-kind scent-sation. Nothing can send me back to the second grade like the smell of fresh crayons! Favorite Crayola color? Magenta. Could live without Burnt Sienna. (I'm not sure either of those colors are still part of the Crayola lineup.
Remember those old-school giant crayons that were flat on one side? Ugh...HATED those...too waxy, so I could never get the depth of color I wanted. I remember being insulted in kindergarten that our crayon usage was limited to those vile things. Would you believe it only just dawned on me a month or so ago that the flat side was so they wouldn't roll off of the table?! I mean the box says 'Anti-Roll' right on the front! What can I say? I despised them so much.
I also bought envelopes while I was at the store, which is what I went for. I had a very productive day of card making today, only to find that I was out of envelopes. Can't get them in the mail without envelopes. I don't believe I will show the photos of them until they have time to be received. :)
