The prompt for Monday the 8th was a favorite story or poem from childhood. I really don't remember any that I really liked but I did have a favorite song that my mom sang to me. So I used it as my inspiration. I had my mom write the words down for me and I stuck it in a pocket on the page.
THE CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM CONE
My mama said if I'd be good she'd send me to the store
She said she'd make some gingerbread if I would sweep the floor
She said if I would make the beds and watch the telephone
That she would send me out to get a chocolate ice cream cone
And so she did the things she said, and she made me some gingerbread
Then I went out just me alone and got my chocolate ice cream cone.
While coming home I stubbed my toe upon a big old stone
And need I tell you that I dropped my chocolate ice cream cone
A little puppy came along and took a great big lick
and so I hit that mean ole dog with just a little stick
Then he bit me where I sit down and he chased me all over town
And now I'm lost can;t find my home, all because of a chocolate ice cream cone.
(She sang, I cried 'cause the little girl was lost and begged her to sing it again and again).

Tuesday the 9th was using things around the house as stamps. Looking for things I discovered that most things in my house are round, except the credit card and the image that the potato bag left. It will make a great background.

This prompt for Wednesday the 10th was blueberry. The only thing that came to mind was . . . well, blueberries.
Today's prompt was falling leaves. I love trees. I draw a lot of trees. I was going to do the background with some leaf rubbings but all the leaves are crispy from lack of water so that didn't work out.
