On a recent shopping trip I discovered Kristina Webb’s Color Me Creative:  Unlock your imagination.  This lovely fat paperback begins with Kristina’s own story of being a very creative/artistic child and the way she and her family dealt with the often very UNcreative restrictions encountered in school.  She tells about becoming an Instagram artist with a huge following, and how blessed she feels with each new “like” or “follow”.

The second part of the book is a series of 50 artistic challenges for the reader, to be done in no particular order, without a grade or scorecard.  They look like delightful fun, and my original plan was to do them myself.

As I continued reading, though, I realized this book was tailor-made for Lily, who seldom puts down her drawing pencils except to read.

So as of about thirty minutes ago, Color Me Creative has changed owners, and Lily is eagerly drawing and naming a set of emojis for her first challenge.  This is going to be fun to watch!
