As a kid, I loved arts and crafts; there was nothing that brought me more joy than to paint a giant orange square on a large sheet of butcher paper and show it off to my ever encouraging mother. At the time I felt like anything was possible, like I could grow up to become a famous artist just like Picasso and that the big orange square would be proof of my artistic genius at a young age...then again, I also thought it was possible that I was secretly a mermaid and that I just needed salt water to transform my legs into fins like Daryl Hannah in Splash. Either way, there's so much imagination and creativity in the mind of a child, it can inspire artists to create some wonderfully whimsical designs. These items have my inner child squealing in excitement!
