It really does not take a lot to make me happy - really it doesn't! I find more and more that I am more interested in shopping for art supplies than I am for clothes for the house for my son. It's always about finding something new and interesting.
So last week, I hit the jackpot. You may not find this super exciting but I really did. I couldn't wait to get home and "play" with my new things.
Here are the pictures and I'll explain after.
No no - I am not joining the fashion industry lol lol
Here is the real reason I bought it. It is full of all kinds of sketches of girls in different poses - in fact - 300 different poses
(Not sure why they did them so light but that's why the pic is like that) So now when I want to draw my girls - either in my Watercolor Girls class or even my Paper Pretty Girls class I can have a reference to go to to draw them in different positions. I can draw them in 300 different positions lol lol.
The other great thing is that I bought this at Home Senses (Home Goods equivalent in the US I think) and I paid a whopping 7.99$
The next great find was this below:
Now I know - you may be saying okay what is it? It's a little box made to look like a file drawer (although it looks like wood here it is actually cardboard) and inside there are 30 index cards - which look very vintage, and there are 30 little blue envelopes for each card.
So what am I going to do with these you say? OMG I am full of ideas - I can use the cards individually in a collage, I can use them in my journal, I can include them in my Paper Kits for my kit club members, I can then use the box for filing, I can make postcards from them (sew on bits of fabric or just collage over the text) Lots and lots of ideas.
This find - wait for it - was a whopping 5.99$ - at Home Sense again!!
The week is off to a great start!
What would you do with my new finds??
