Artist's Emporium which was having a big sale. I did WELL! I got some fun things for the grand kiddies and me to try on our artist dates. Better watercolour pencils for all! And a super colouring book with tear out pages on great paper.
The home decor is up on my radar as fall falls behind and the whites of winter snuggle in. I'm so excited about my new style book as the quiz on style caused me to slap my ahead- of course!!! No major changes to my plan but definitely a better focus and better tweaking!
I am feeling the itch to sew real bad. A lovely visit with my friend Elizabeth at Sew Inspiring inspired me even more. I'm impatiently awaiting the new ruler foot for domestic Bernina machines and she gave me a great tip for making the rulers nonskid. Those net liners Ikea sells for under rugs work remarkably well when cut to the shape of the ruler and adhered with a bit of super glue. They do NOT budge!
The new Quilt Improv book made me go looking for some fabric and I do have an online order coming from Fabric Spot, a Canadian company. Boring backgrounds and fillers but with the modern look. :) Something to look forward to. We do keep the holiday buying down to just above Scrooge level so this is my own prezzie! :) And I never could wait for the big day and was/am an inveterate seeker and searcher of all things hidden. Now I just wait for the mail! LOL
Can't wait to get Monday's plan going as it is clear and bright and white here at the coop. Time to snuggle up with winter's calmer pace!

|An artist play date|
In order to be well rounded individuals they have a evening date with the Rooster and The Rifleman! ;^)
Then we cut pictures for our focal points. Jolina and I used an old calendar and got some nice images and words. Eliana had used my Tombow markers to colour a fairy we printed out. I insisted it be cut out and she was dismayed at the loss of some stars and 'curtains'. I assured her we could make this work. I'm more concerned with the harsh colours. :O Josh persists with his obsession about the Titanic. We printed out a picture that satisfied us both. (I'm not really into ship disasters.) :O Softening the paper edge was a challenge.
And there they rest while I dreamed of solutions to make some wall art that their mother will be delighted to showcase on her walls. lol
To be continued...

I made it as far as the library in town. I phoned the grand kiddies and said life was too short for the white knuckle run on icy roads. :( I selected a couple of movies as well as the book they had brought in for me. I did an ice turn at the Dollar Store and scooted back home. Snow Day!
But my grand kiddies will be arriving this evening and we shall have a few days to mess up the art room. Stand by for full colour next week!
BUT- Next time I get the urge to clean I'm gonna run up and down the stairs a few times. LOL

I got two letter drawers at a closing sale to mount. I have the Sprutt ready to fill and the playroom to tackle because the grand kiddies are coming for an art day on Friday. I must get on with Monday's plan!

Once again I have discovered that if I have no general target, I barely get my arrow in the air!
