I’m off …

on a very long plane ride.
be back soon with pictures from down under!

I leave you with this thought, on crayons …

"We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty,
some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all
have learned to live together in the same box."

Robert Fulghum (b. 1937)
author, pastor

be you. be colorful.
get along!

  4. Great quote! I forgot about that one; a year or so ago I did a mini album for each of my kids using his quotes & adapted them to “everything I ever needed to know I learned in pre-school”. Have a great trip! Thanks for the comment on my blog! You made my week! :) Katie Scott

  5. I LOVE that quote and it’s something we can all strive for. Have a great time ‘down under’ and can’t wait for those photos.

  6. oh, stacy… i LOVE that quote! :)

  8. Kim Pitcher says:

    That’s an awesome quote. I just love his books and had several. Haven’t seent them since we moved. Maybe time to pick them up again…or look for them. Thanks for the reminder.

  9. Hope your trip is wonderful. Love the quote, and it is soooo true!

  10. I have a poem to share along the same lines-It came from a book by Shane DeRolf, but this is the shortened version I heard on a T.V. commercial. ‘While walking through a store, the day before today, I overheard a box of crayons with many things to say. “I don’t like Red”, said Yellow and Green said “Nor do I, and no one here likes Orange but no one knows just why”. So I bought that box of crayons and I took them home with me. I colored with every one so each of them could see that everyone is different and each of us unique, but it’s when we work together that the picture is complete.’

  11. Stacy, thanks to your inspirational words at Creative Escape 2006, I signed up and just completed last Saturday the Ironman in Panama City, Florida. You don’t know how much your words about reaching for the goal that seems unachievable meant to me. Thanks for the power in your words and spirit. I will always be grateful that I was able to hear you speak with my dear friend, Margie. (We were in tears)

  12. i’ve heard that one several times but it never gets old. thanks for sharing.

  13. Sent that quote to the lady that creates our daily announcements. Thought it was beneficial for our middle school kidlets! Thanks for the eye opener… and you just being YOU! You always give me “hope”

  14. Love the quote. I’m 46 years old and still LOVE to color and still get excited over a brand new box of Crayolas.

  15. Lovebug Kat says:

    I absolutely love that quote!!!!!
    Have a safe trip Stacy!

  16. Hi Stacy!!! I am getting ready to put all of my photos into chronological storage albums as you suggust in your Big Picture book. can you give an idea for a great 3 ring archival photo storage album. Thanks!

  17. I love this! Not only can I totally relate but I have a big box of broken crayons that I can’t seem to part with. I keep thinking that I will use them for something. Don’t want them to… feel bad. :)
