After Christmas Craft & Art Supply Haul & Winners Announced!

Hi friends! The week of lazy continues for me, I have been puttering around, accomplishing next to nothing and enjoying the downtime with the kids! Today we watched Netflix while putting together puzzles and doodling in my new watercolor sketchbook.


I actually went in my office and tried to do an acrylic project, my heart was not in it and I scraped the paint off the canvas about 15 minutes in. I may return to that painting, or not, currently I am not feeling it LOL! I did post an after Christmas haul on YouTube yesterday, some things I got for Christmas and other things I ordered before Christmas for upcoming classes and tutorials that just arrived. If you are curious have a look:

I hit the overstock and closeout dale at Jerry’s Artarama pretty hard, I bought:
20 of the 24  half pan Daler Rowney Aquafine palettes for $10 each (regular $50) for upcoming workshops & classes
LUKAS Design Gouache set of 12 ($12)
Cachet watercolor sketchbook ($12) *used in photo above!

  1. Lindsay, just in case you didn’t know, please be aware that essential oils can be toxic to cats. They lack a liver enzyme that would allow them to break down certain chemicals. I know that you were worried about gamsol – but you might want to research the use of essential oils around them as well.
    I enjoy watching your videos and it is fun to see what other people can’t pass up on sale too. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I just love these haul videos. I found the nail polish remover bottle at the Dollar Store, so glad to find that. I went to Michaels and found Artist Loft 28 count Pearlescent Watercolor Pan set for $5. I bought and tried it and love it. I wondered if you have done a video on them yet. I would like a link to that or would like to see one on these if you haven’t yet. I will wait to hear.
