Art Supplies!

Do you remember me telling you about winning Halle's Hobbies blog give-away? Well -- my package arrived today!

DD8 ran into the Learning Lab with the box in hand exclaiming, "Your art supplies are here, Mommy! Your art supplies are here!" She'd come upon the box on the front porch where a postal worker must have left it (very unusual in our neck of the woods -- usually we have to go to the post office to pick up parcels that don't fit in the superbox).

So exciting . . .

When the box was opened . . .

Under the bubble bags (which had to be popped as noisily as possible) . . .

Pretty pastels . . .

Beautiful brush-tip markers . . .

Big pad of sketch paper . . .

Oh, the fun to be had!

Have you had any creative treats lately? What would you wish for if you could win some supplies with which to express your creativity?


  1. Hi! I stopped in after reading your post on the Altered Books Yahoo Group.
    Love your blog! Really enjoyed the post about your sewn journal bag! :-)
    Will stop back again to see what you're working on!
    My best to you,

  2. Thank you, Cindy :) I'm so glad you stopped by! The next "scheduled" project is a vision statement banner from the Artistic Mother workshop. But first I have to determine my vision! LOL

    I'm going to pop over to see you at your blogspot now :)

  3. Oh I love art supplies. One of the coolest ideas I learned from a teacher - draw with oil pastels on sand paper! 600 grain, I like black best. Cheap and easy to find at Home Depot type places. The results are luscious. Let me know if you try this out

  4. I read that idea somewhere, Tobi -- but have yet to try it! Will have to raid DH's stash of sandpaper soon!


Sincere responses . . .
