I'm a Part of The Documented Life Project

I can't wait for my Moleskine to get here so I can start!  I am looking forward to not only getting myself more organized but also being able to create on the go. The project is open to anyone interested in making an artsy planner and there are challenges each week. I plan to go back and do the challenges that I missed. Roben Marie Smith has been a favorite of mine for a long time. I've followed her online and watched her videos to learn many of the techniques I use in my mixed media work. The project was created by a friend of hers Lorraine Bell who would carry three different books with her wherever she went and decided to combine the three into one. Brilliant! All the women in the ART5 group are extremely talented. I can't wait to learn from all of them. You really should check out this project AND all the blogs related to it. Good stuff!

A Great Resource for Art and Other Stuff

I discovered this site called American Science and Surplus about 6 months ago. I LOVE this website they have everything from the really strange to the really useful. I can't rave about this place enough. I even got Christmas presents for the kids there. I've bought this and that, but the best part is so many of the things can be used for art supplies. I have to limit myself when I order or I would order one of everything! Check out my video about my last order and how I plan to use what I got. I hope you visit the American Science and Surplus website, I guarantee you will find SOMETHING you absolutely must have right now! Perhaps a box of twenty erasers shaped like UPS trucks?
