So, I toddled off to Hobby Craft today, well actually yesterday since its now officially monday, 01.16am, hmmm, I must go to bed soon. It's no surprise that I am SO grumpy in the mornings! I'm the kinda girl who needs 12 hours sleep, failing that I have a back up, I am also able to take a cat nap anytime of the day and if that plan fails...then I'm just plain right grumpy!

Anyway back to my new art supplies, mmmm buying new things is yummy and it makes me feel happy!

I can defiantly put my hand up and agree that buying crafting supplies is like eating chocolate... and other things!!

Can't wait to see what you are going to paint with them.
I wouldn't know where to start.
A squirt of paint on the palette, and thats as far as i'd go!

lol! they are posh...but very very good! As I run out of my student grade paints i'm upgrading to the finity..!

Well, I'm in the midst of doing some paintings for my 4yr old son, I think he's feeling left out with all the other paintings i've been doing.

The colours will work well with my sunset series. So watch this space..lol!

I went and bought MORE stuff today. Some box canvas' and some different ribbons. its so exciting!
