New In Stock!

We’ve have got some amazing things in at the store!  I am going to try and link y’all up with some You Tube videos to help give you ideas on how to use these products as well. 

First up: Smooch

It’s fun just to say that, but it is a wonderful paint.  The colors are so vibrant and the brush is nice and thin so you can do some fantantic detail work with it.

See the video here: Smooch video and you can purchase it here.

Next up, we have Tsukineko’s Fireworks Spray.  This stuff is so cool as you can use it on glossy AND dark  papers!  I love that!

Check out the video here and the spray are in stock here.  Also, we have Goosebumps that is mentioned in the video that you can find here as well.

Also, don’t forget we do carry Copic supplies and are happy to special order any colors that you may need.  :0)



Classroom Wednesdays: Butterfly Mobile

With the temperature getting warmer and warmer, I thought this butterfly mobile by Auntie Recreates would be seasonally appropriate.  It is also a way to reuse some cardboard that you may have laying about the house, waiting to be recycled and repurposed into something pretty.  Now who wouldn’t like that?

Classroom Wednesdays: Copic Tutorial!


For anyone who’s tried them, Copics are an amazing marker but it does take some time to learn how to use them to their full potential.  Here is a great little tutorial by Debbie Hodge who walks you through the colouring of a Love Bug.  Enjoy!

I wish I had so many pencils!  But I wish I could use them artistically even more!  LOL  I thought this was a great “green” way to recycle and repurpose and couldn’t wait to share it with you.  See it at Recyclart.  :0)
