Color Me Happy ~

I recently purchased a new set of Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils. 

This set runs around $180, but I got mine for $90 from Ebay - thank you Ebay!! I decided they needed to be out of their box and easily accessible.

So I grabbed whatever glassware I had handy. And let the color coordinating begin - the kiddos enjoyed helping me "sort" all of the colors. 

I have got to say, colored pencils (really any art supply for that matter) really makes me smile. 

I love all of the colors...just waiting to create. 

I realize that the computer is now one of the most popular "mediums", but I still love the old fashion pen to paper. 

How about you, is there a specific art supply that makes you smile?

Basic art supplies? My pencil and eraser! Then I love my paints ~ anything metallic and I always want to figure out a way to work it in.

I LOVE shopping for the kids supplies in the begining of the school year.I LOVE the smell of crayons! I was super exited when my daughters list contained 'oil pastels'. I, too, love seeing the colors out and organized.I love to sketch and draw and always carry my notebook w/me. That makes me smile!

I understand completely! Walking into a stationary store with all those great pens, pencils and paper makes me positively giddy with excitement.

This post is right up my ally!!! Prisma colored pancils are so much fun!
Right now I would have to say that refined linseed oil is my fav for the moment.
I have started useing more of it in my oils & its making a huge difference in drying time for my paintings.

I enjoy paintbrush shopping. I like to feel them for the right softness or stiffness and look at all the array of styles. I like the ones with soft rubbery grip handles too and the clear ones are so much better than those painted wooden handled ones.

Love pencils! Love color, period. Actually, my studio looks like an episode of Hoarders! It's a disease I know,lol! I collect, or rather I should say, am addicted to paint. I know it's what I do for a living, but really? I'm talking TONS :D So, totally understand the pencil fetish! Cute blog btw, following you on FB.-Mary

I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
