Once upon a time there was a little girl who loved to draw. She would sit for hours filling up page after page with her creations.
She loved to draw so much that she even decided to try her hand at drawing on a variety of surfaces. Like walls, doors and lamp shades.
Her mother, who was always so supportive and encouraging of her artistic abilities was strangely less enthusiastic about these additional attempts at creative expression.
She experienced quite a few ‘time-outs’ for her graffiti. And so, when one day her mother came to her and told her that she could draw all over a brand-new lamp shade, it is only to be expected that she would look up at her mom and say, “But am I going to get in trouble for this?”
