Merry Christmas to me!

Hello!  I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!  Today I have a video to share of some things I just got today from Dick Blick Art Supply that I have eagerly waited for!  I am a big fan of the Faber Castell Pitt Big Brush Artist Pens and I pretty much completed my collection of them.  I believe the only ones I don't have are gold and silver which I don't really care to get as I don't think I'd use them much.  Most places sell them for $5 a marker, but Dick Blick sells them for $2.55 each so if you are looking to pick any up, that is where I suggest.  They are also quick on shipping!  (Good for impatient people like me when I order things).  I also give them an A+ on customer service.  Once I got dry markers (the tops had come off in the shipping process) and they sent replacements Fed Ex overnight!!!  Wow!

I also got some Inktense watercolor pencils, which according to Jennifer McQuire (crafter and Hero Arts designer), are the best things ever because they are more like ink when wet and get a vibrant color.  I will try them out tonight.

I hope everyone has a great New Year's Eve!
