Here is one of the places I love to stop at while in Missoula.

Then here is one of my favorite people


These are my new water soluble wax crayons. I wanted a nice color range. These look pretty sitting in their little tin.

This was from a group of miscellaneous papers that came in a grab bag package. There were so many to choose from that I just closed my eyes and grabbed one. It was hard making a decision if I looked at them since they all hade snips of papers that I liked.

These were just random small sheets of paper I got. They are 10 x 10.

I also got a couple sheets of Fabriano watercolor paper and some Japanese Hosha paper to make journal covers. They are both white so its useless having a picture of them.

Here is a tube of Golden's heavy body acrylics in the color Azurite. Its a mystery to me why this color is not available at Michaels and its not on any of Golden's color charts but I can always find it at the UM bookstore. Its really a great shade of blue.

The Trip went as well as it could, yes it snowed most of the way but the roads were not icy so that was great. I had a great time with Sarah and picked up some Art things that I have been wanting so that was a plus. The drive home wasn't fun since I didn't leave till 3pm and had been driving her around all day. I got home around 8 and was glad to be out of a car. Next time I think I will stay longer...

Oh, I'm drooling all over the screen over those crayons!! All those pretty colors all lined up just make me want to color something.

What a great day you had. My son used to live south of Missoula and I always liked visiting there. I know what you mean about all that driving. I don't like it that much anymore. If I drive a couple of hours that's it for me!!

Yeah, I'd like to try those crayons too, but I hafta TRY to not buy more STUFF right now! My local Michaels stopped carrying Golden. I think that is their mistake. I will go somewhere else to purchase that brand. They are wonderful paints.

You treated yourself to lots of great goodies. Can't wait to see what they will inspire you to create.

I love the watercolour crayons. I use mine all the time. Have fun playing with them!
