New Tool


It was time to start a new sketchbook. For a change - and because my girls have used up my special markers for sketching - I broke out the Prismacolors. I adore the perfection of them before they've been used and shortened and sharpened. Using special fabric? No problem! Using new pencil crayons? So hard to do.

Now, I wonder how long I can keep the kids away from these?

Put mousetraps in the box. That'll teach them thievin' little fingers. ��

Past experience tells me - no long. I just bought myself a new set of pencils recently and I have kept them hidden so they are not getting much use yet. Spring is coming I will use them more then.

I feel the same way about my fine line sharpies. Mine! Mine! Mine!

My kids don't get into mine at all anymore...the secret? They grew up, and I sure miss their artwork :)

I feel that way about a new large box of crayons. They look so perfect and beautiful.

My husband and I went to architecture school and our girls grew up with huge boxes of prismacolor pencils around the house. My 25 year old told me the other day that they were amazed that all their friends didn't have prism pencils...

I've had my set of Prismacolors since high school. It might be replacement time:)
