My Periwinkle Crayon

Hi,  I'm Darla.  If you know me, you know I am an artist, a wife and a mom.  But once apon a time I was a little girl, who loved to draw...anytime and anywhere.  My favoite place was in my parents backyard under a large tree.  I would look up between the bright lime leaves and see a periwinkle sky.  It has been my favorite color ever since.  

After I married, my husband Joe and I started our family, our oldest son Ian received a book of children's classics.  In it was a special story " Harold and the Purple Crayon" by Crockett Johnson.  It is one of my favorites.   A gentle story that shows you how far your imagination can take you.  This is the beginning of my blog jouney.  I hope you join me along the way.  I promise to keep it colorful and creative...and use my periwinkle crayon to share my artistic passion and a little about me too!
