I got stlefs….

I know what you’re thinking… You’re wondering if I know where the home keys are on my keyboard… Or maybe I’m creating my own language… Perhaps I’m just willynilly hitting keys… Nope.  “Stlefs” comes from my childhood.  When I was young, I asked what I was getting for Christmas.  I was told that I was getting stlefs.  I was baffled.  They swore that they were telling the truth.  Christmas morning arrived and my stlefs turned out to be felts – get it?  It’s backwards.

Today I found myself in the craft store looking for some hollow rubber tubing for making jewellery.  I didn’t find it, but I did find myself in the sketch pad aisle, where I decided to pick up a purse size sketch book.  Then I turned around, and was greeted by a wall of pens and pencils and pastels… Yummy!  I decided I needed some.  I found a huge pack of watercolour pens – one side is like a brush felt tip, and the other is a fine pen tip.  Perfect for travelling – the ink is water soluble so the image could be watered down, but the ink looks great on its own.  Yay!

I’m happy now… Took long enough… heehee!

  1. I could spend thousands of dollars at the craft store, most of it in the drawing aisle!

    I love buying new pens & pencils for drawing & colouring. I’m horrible at drawing & yet I still try.
