Chicken Update, Azalea Tutorial & Watercolor Pencil Review!

Howdy friends! You were so sweet to ask after our sweet chicken Rosie, she is doing better, eating and drinking more (although not enough I feel like she can go outside) and today she started cooing (that sweet little chicken purr or trill sound they make) again. We gave her a warm bath this evening to clean her feathers, she did not have the strength to stand when she did her business so her tail-end needed some cleaning plus she was a bit exuberant with some yogurt today so she needed the works. She actually seemed to enjoy it then Lila held her in a towel for a bit before we finished with a blow dryer. This chicken is getting the spa treatment and I worry she may never want to back out to the coop! My husband is not keen in the idea of having an “inside” chicken though.

Today we are painting azaleas with watercolor pencils. I was at ACmoore with a rewards check burning a hole in my pocket and I saw a set of 36 watercolor pencils by the brand Fantasia on sale for $16 so I thought I would give them a try. See how they preformed in todays video!

Video!

I am glad I found these at this price, I think they would be a good set for a beginner. The downside is that 36 colors is the biggest set and to my knowledge you can’t get individual pencils if you use one up BUT if you use up this set you deserve a professional set because by golly you earned it! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found the review helpful and til next time happy crafting!

PS I know that we usually have Stamp School on Wednesdays but do to our chicken drama I have to skip this week but I have a fun Christmas stamping project coming to the blog Friday so you can get your stamping fix!
