Ah! Such a good feeling. We were long overdue for an art supply replenishment. We are fully loaded and happy with all our new little goodies. Our colored pencil supply that goes along with our family sketchbook is also nicely stocked up. I still want to get some tempera paints and a few other goodies, but I think my most recent purchases will suffice for this bit.
What do we have? Well, we got some new markers and colored pencils from the wonderful German company Stabilo. Then, we got some small-big colored pencils, crayon rocks, and watercolor crayons from this lovely store (all fantastic eco-friendly stuff). It all looks so pretty in their special little spots. The first night we had them, True wanted to see them before she went to sleep. She said, “Mommy, I want to see my art stuff in my art cabinet.” It was a melt-your-heart moment. All looks lovely, just lovely.
We have been doing a lot of doodling with them and things get messy real fast. These little girls like to take everything out of the art cabinet to use. It is a grand mess after all the coloring and doodling is done. Happy crafty messes are the best messes to have.
I am in full force of creating. I have about 10 necklaces to put in the shop. I plan on making at least 5 bags using vintage tablecloths, and a whole surplus of things that I hope I will have time for. I have been bitten by the crafting bug bad and it is about time, since this baby in my belly has kept a lot of new crafting at bay. I am pretty happy dappy in crafty land of late.
How about you… are you crafting up anything new? Let’s all be in happy, dappy, crafty land together!
