I have a 3 day weekend! Yay! I'm going to work on swaps, and more swaps -- that's my plan anyway!

Talking of color pencils, a good, inexpensive brand is Koh-I-Noor woodless colour pencils; a package of 24 from Hobby Lobby was about $15 so with a 40% off coupon a very good starter set for lots less than Prismas! I do have 3 sets of Prisma color pencils - started with the 48 pencil set, then went with the 120, and then got another set of 300 I think...I seem to always pull my Koh-I-Noor pencils out. I use baby oil as the blending agent and the stumps that look solid not the stumps that look like twisted paper. I just ordered a glass pump from ebay so I can use gamsol without tipping and spilling it all over the place. I got my gamsol at Archivers. Odorles Mineral spirits like Donna mentioned at Hobby Lobby; I think Michaels also has that brand.

Happy colorin everyone!

in case you are DYING to know...the first page's topic is "Some of my Favorite crafting products/supplies..."

And, as soon as I figure out if I can skip around in the book or not...


2012 Design teams...will be the next page I start. Right, I can skip around...sure I can.

so far...I have some paper scraps glued in...from "Citrus Stack" (DCWV)...I have been using a lot of this on my cards lately.

And a heart cut from my Sizzix eclips...which I am learning to love. (Long story short...DH surprised me with a christmas gift in October...the ecillps. But, I had been waiting to get the Silhouette Cameo. But, he didn't ask...well...so, yeah, I'm learing to love it. haha. BTW< eclips has a stronger cutting pressure than the Cameo...and the cameo can cut vinyl to 10 feet lengths...other than that, they are the same machine. Silhouette just markets a lot better, IMHO)

ACMoore has their mat stacks on sale and it looks like clearance, which makes me wonder...are they not going to carry them anymore? I bought The Cafe Mediterranean. Love it. Citrus is pretty too! One of my favs is the Linen stack. I buy the small stacks because the print is more suitable to cards.

If this doesn't take you to the mat stack, just type in The Cafe Mediterranean in the search box in the top right.

I bought a leather journal with a rubber band that is attached and goes around it for $4.99 at Michaels a couple of weeks ago for use as a smash book...just need to start smashing!
