Don't you love the title of Diva's challenge this week? I think it is so cute. This week we had to draw squares and use them in a string challenge. I love working in boxy places so this was a lot of fun!
My anxiously awaited Amazon order has arrived. Yahoo! I ordered Made in the Shade and The Art of Zentangle. The biggest problem I can see with both these books is - which do I look at first?! Seriously. They are really awesome and I keep swapping back and forth. I need to make up my mind and see one cover to cover, but it is so hard. If you have not gotten these books, you should dash out and get them both.
My other purchase is also totally awesome. A pencil sharpener. Yep. It has got to be the best thing I have ever seen. I bought one for the classroom and just loved it. I have fought pencil sharpeners in my room for 30+ years. Nothing works well. Until now. It is sturdy, quiet and stops the pencil from being ground into 1 inch bits. None of that is a problem if you are going to use it in your art studio, but with 8 year old children all are very important factors. I love it so much my second one just came - again from Amazon - and this time it is for me! Below is a picture of this wonderful item. Go to Amazon and check it our if you have a need for one anytime soon.
