  4. Tyler: Glad I could make you smile

    Roshan:It was a sharpener, but they crumbled under the stress.Imagine what a shredder would have done.

    Misti:I felt the same way when i saw that burst of colours.

    Devil Mood:I didnt do it.My kids did.I discovered it after they had left for schhol.I found it so beautiful that I simply had to click a picture.

  5. Sure, if you were ALLOWED to get the box with the sharpener which I never was. Too expensive! Still bitter, can ya tell?

  7. Those unruly children! How did they get into that locked cabinet where you keep your most valuable art supplies? That boy had a hand in this, no doubt. I must politely tend to him. You shall see. I will try not to go to hard on him. But he must answer for this!!!

    Gawpo:How--just how did you know about my locked cabinet?i demand you tell me right now!! What else do you know about me that i keep locked? Fast.. Fast (chewing nails).Am waiting :-)

    Freelance cynic:My kids did it.But the mess was so beautiful that i let it stay for three days before clearing it.My head is always on a vacation!Doesnt it show!

    Bob-Kat:True!See my comment above.

    the sharpened crayon or pencil is irresistible to me..like a new book waiting to be read or the new page one begins to write on
