Day 3: Draw a Wallet, Purse or Bag
It's funny how much colouring with crayons is stimulating my memory bank - and not just about times in the past when I was colouring. I find myself scribbling away and having the strangest things come back to me; trips I've taken, people I've known. It's an interesting type of meditation.
I did have about one billion handbags. A couple of years ago I wrote an article for the paper on excess consumerism called 'Play With the Toys You've Already Got'. Made me look at my own 'stuff' in a whole new light. I'd still rate pretty high on a 'stimulating the economy' scale, but I no longer have the need (or the energy) to transport wallet, keys, cell phone, three lip glosses, handfuls of receipts I'll lose before I ever give to my accountant and various and sundry other goodies from bag to bag to better reflect my fashion mood of the moment.
Or maybe I just upgraded to better bags.
Here's the black and whitey. Feel free to download
and do a little colouring of your own.
