Anyone remember these? Anyone NOT remember these??? Oh, the 64 different, brilliant colors! The built-in sharpener! Technology was something else back then.
As they say, the more things change, the more they stay the same. The feeling of looking at this classic box still gives me the same smile and feeling of possibility as it did decades ago. The supplies have changed, I can buy my own now and not convince my parents I reallllllllly needed all 64 colors. But the joy remains. Stocking up on ALL the paint tubes is still a thrill. Organizing the stack of new canvas is a delight. Investing in good brushes is worth it. Turns out the right supplies do make a difference!
Paint on, friends. Or bake, sew, write, run, draw, doodle away. We are on what feels like a hint of the home stretch. I’m filling my cup with things that make me feel good. Like a 64 pack of Crayola crayons circa 1977. Yup. That’s what it takes today.
