Seriously.  The other morning I was so tired instead of toothpaste I accidentally put DESITIN on my toothbrush… TALK about a WAKE UP CALL! 

For the record butt paste tastes nasty.  Really really nasty.

Inside or outside the lines?  Sure, both please!  My philosophy with regards to art is that whatever makes your heart happy is okay. There is no bad art. 

My favorite creative coloring series is The Anti Coloring Book by Susan Striker
