I never got to the art store last week but I do have some supplies. So I opened up the 'text' book, and my journal and my paints. oooh, some are quite dry but I've learned they are redeemable. So this will be a work book and not an instant work of art, or should I say Elle!
I also forgot to mention the Peter Rabbit pot, the real deal by Beatrix Potter I found at the thrift shop. I offered it to my 2 fellow shoppers and they passed so I didn't. 8^)
