Julia's blog to see what's on everybody's desk this week.
You can't tell it by this photo, but Betsy is ginning from left to right and back again this week, cause she is loaded with new ink pens, new inks, new art journal and even a new book to store die cuts in!!! Last weekend, while our heater was on the blink, I sat a little space heater up in here and crafted all day Saturday. I made the book there on the left, it is full of pockets that now hold odd die cuts, the extras that seem to get cut, but for some reason are not the right color, wrong shape after all, or I was just die cutting left over scraps.
The pink bucket holds my new Faber Castell colored brush markers.......WOOT! WOOT! I have been wanting some new markers, of good quality, and NOT water based. Theses are fantastic! They are India Ink and dry super fast. The ones on the desk top are Faber Castell Pitt markers with the small tip, great for journaling and doodling, and are India Ink also. NO, I did NOT pay full price for all of them. It took me a few stops and more than two 50% off coupons to get most of them. I will confess, cause ya'll know me too well by now, that I did pay full price for a couple of the FC brush marker sets, only because I wanted to bring them home TODAY!!!
Those are the empty packages still laying where they landed when I opened the pens up........grin. The bottles (in the shadows) are Liquitex acrylic ink, and they were ALL ON SALE from $7.00 each down to $4.00 each at Hobby Lobby today.
Mixed in with all the ink are a couple of rolls of Recollections glitter tape, that are cut in a swirly design.........only 99 cents apiece! "Blue skies are here again, put on a happy face" good thing you really can't hear me singing that!!! LOL
Once I got the pens out of the packages I grabbed my new journal and headed for the sofa to give them a try, my first sewn together journal instead of the spiral or loose leaf I usually buy. Didn't stay at Betsy for the test run be cause DH was home, and I can doodle and talk ( mostly listen to him talk....grin) at the same time. He has been have dental work done the last couple of days. Today they put the implants in for his two front teeth and he's kinda sore. Once these heal up they will crown them, and he will have two new, permanent teeth, and hopefully he will be finished for the rest of his life!! This is just the end of almost a year of dental work. I might have been able to get a newer model DH for the price of all this dental work, but I just don't have the patience to train a new one.....LOL
Thanks to everybody that visited last week. I'll start my rounds early tomorrow, when it is really Wednesday here...........................
