I’ll Have a Blue Christmas

9 Flares Filament.io 9 Flares ×

Merry Christmas making .  Making it midnight blue. turquoise and tan.  I had forgotten how much I loved my midnight blue crayons as a kid.  It was always the first one in the pack I picked up.  It’s mysterious, dark and deep like the winter season, going inward, reflecting, feeling the love of friends and wanting to share it outward.
