If I thought I was missing my clothing (it's still in California), I've REALLY been missing my art supplies. Several months ago, during "the BIG PURGE" I donated most of my supplies. I try not to be too upset about it in hindsight because it really was such a neccessary and freeing experience for me. I kept all of the essentials in about 6 plastic [2 drawer] totes; all of which are taking up space in my sister's garage in California. I only brought my art journals with me during the move. Through my photography business I am able to be creative every day by taking and editing photos and working on digitial design projects - but it's not the same thing as getting your hands dirty with tape, glue, markers, paint, stamps, etc.
Last week I started a new part time position with Paper Source and couldn't be more excited about it! I get to be paid to be creative every day, are you kidding me?! :) I love it! With my employee discount I picked up a few supplies that I am loving!! I am completely smitten with the entire SMASH journal line. (Check out the SMASH video - fun stuff!). I had to get the Black Dot tape as soon as I saw it and I also got the Like This tape (cute!). I picked up a couple of rubber stamps, too. I needed new multi colored highlighters for my planner. I'm old school; I like to write my schedule and keep to-do lists in a planner that I carry with me in my purse. I got these Yummy Yummy Scented Hi-Liters that I am obsessed with now. Seriously, I will sometimes sniff my highlighted paper. Don't tell anybody. ;)
PS - My mom took this picture of Bean for his birthday invitations. How stinkin' cute, right?! Gah! I wish I could be there. Sniff sniff.
