I got a gift card from Dick Blick from my husband’s son and his family. I hadn’t decided what I wanted to get so I was savoring the anticipation of ordering. But I finally ordered my new goodies.
I got a couple of my favorite sketch books, a pencil case for my colored pencils (I already had the pencils), a set of High Flow Golden Acrylics and a couple of empty pens that you can put the acrylics in and then make marks.
I love the pencil case, it holds all 72 pencils easily. I had a tin for them but the pencils were always falling out and it was hard to travel with the pencils that way. So usually I just haven’t been taking them with me. Now they are all together and easy to get to without having all the other pencils roll around everywhere.
And I’ve wanted to try the high flow acrylics for a while now. Of course, since I made two videos today for online classes, I didn’t get to try them yet. But soon. Thanks Chris, Andie, Ashley and Connor for the wonderful Christmas present!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
Wow! What a wonderful gift that keeps giving. ;-). Enjoy!
Yes, I always love those gift cards from Dick Blick 🙂
The strapped pencil case makes sense – pencils are easily damaged by rattling around in a tin – looks prettier too!
Yes, I have been wanting one for quite a while.
A very useful Xmas gift and I look forward to seeing what you do with those lovely acrylics. 🙂
I received a similar Xmas voucher from our daughter and family and really enjoyed shopping for some of the things on my crafty wish list. 🙂
It is fun shopping with someone else’s money, isn’t it?
What a lovely treasure trove, I have just finished my own order for Dick Blick using my Christmas gift voucher, can’t wait till they arrive. Karen
Oooo… What did you get?
Lots of goodies too, some more Sennelier water colour pans, water soluble graphic (been dying to play with this for ages) and some prisma colour pencils I can’t get in Australia. I will have to be patient though as it will take a couple of weeks to get here. Karen
That sounds wonderful – have fun!
