Know what makes me very happy???
A brand-spankin’ new box of colorful chalk pastels!!!!! Honestly, I have been waiting ALL Winter to open them so we could….
…create a butterfly garden along our sidewalk!!
Emily and I absolutely love sidewalk chalk art! Each section of sidewalk is like a huge canvas, and I would have loved to have such brightly colored chalk when I was a kid. Kids have such lovely things these days, don’t they?? *sigh*
In fact, these colors are so bright, that awhile back I drew what looked like a pool of water on one square of sidewalk, and a group of birds landed — looking very disappointed! Seriously!!!
These pretty walkways are getting to be a bit of a tradition around here, with Emily and I eagerly awaiting a warm & sunny day to be spent doodling outside. Bliss!!
Update: You can purchase these chalk pastels online at Blick Art Materials (affiliate link). We use the set of 48, and I save the 40% off coupons for the art store. I almost always use the coupons on either chalk, colored paper, or model magic. Three must-have supplies for art time fun!
