I had the money I earned from tutoring Statistics on Tuesday afternoon and that was earmarked for art supplies. I can't believe all the things I was able to purchase and stay within my $45 limit.
The Pitt calligraphy pens were actually buy a package of three (cranberry, black and sepia) and get a package of three black caligraphy pens free. I think they saw me coming
. The papers were in the clearance section and were either 21 or 24 cents.
When I got home and unpacked I opened my pens and found they had a practice sheet inside, so I copied a bit of what they had and am not altogether displeased with the results. What do you think?
I think I have to work on my slant, but this looks so much better than my usual printing, I am really encouraged and can't wait for the creative lettering class to start.
And as if that wasn't enough goodness for a day, when the mail came I had a package from my dear friend, Fannie, with a Moleskine inside. She had a giveaway on her blog last week and when I signed up for a chance to win, I mentioned that I had never owned a Moleskine. I didn't win, but she sent me one anyway. I have the most wonderful online friends and just wish I could meet them. If you don't know Fannie, be sure to check out her blog by clicking on her name above. She has some lovely art on her blog and is involved in a wide variety of mediums - some really lovely quilt blocks among other things.
It is Saturday and I am meeting my Statistics tutee at Panera's this morning and then have the little girls for most of the day. It is supposed to be warmer with sun today. Maybe we can get the girls outdoors to play in the back yard. They love playing outdoors and it is so good for them.
Gotta go. I am trying heat on my left upper arm this morning. I absolutely cannot believe how badly it still hurts. Maybe I can forget about it if I put heat on it and concentrate on the morning crossword puzzle.
