New toys!

DSC_2337Had a happy accident yesterday πŸ™‚ While running some errands I stumbled across a Hobby Lobby. πŸ˜€ Never been to one before, and IΒ  thought the nearest one was a few hours away. So I wandered in after my errands and looked around, trying very hard not to jump up and down in excitement to act like an adult. And in the scrapbook/stickers/awesome-stuff-that-can-be-used-in-art-journaling section, I came across dylusions spray inks! 2 for $9.99. You bet I snatched up a couple of those! The cheapest I have found them online is about $650 each + shipping. So 2 for $10 and no shipping made me really really happy. They also had the dylusions journal for $24, which I really wanted to get since I’ve heard so many wonderful things about the paper in it, and it’s a great size. But I talked myself out of spending more money on another art journal, regardless of its awesomeness πŸ™‚ (Hubby should be proud!) I could have spent so much money yesterday… πŸ˜› They had a bunch of stuff there I haven’t seen at Michael’s or A.C Moore, and someday I will definitely have to make another trip down there!

So back to the spray inks. I’ve never used the dylusions before, or really any manufactured sprays, just watered down acrylics, which are great and cheap to make but the colors are not always as vibrant as I would like. With the dylusions, the colors are awesome!! So bright and fun to mix! I am in product love here πŸ˜€ This morning I spent some time playing with them and some plastic canvas shapes I bought,and a couple of stencils. Love the results!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

About kittyisnotamused

I am an eclectic crafter whose hobbies currently include knitting, crochet, making journals, cooking, and quilting, although I have also been addicted to jewelry making, scrapbooking, sewing, and many others. My passion for creating runs a wide gamut and jumps back and forth from new hobbies to old often. I live with my hubby and our 3 pets: 1 grown puppy with the attention span of a goldfish, and 2 lazy chubby kitties. Kitties who, despite my best efforts to gain their enthusiasm, show no interest in what I'm working on except to lay on whatever it is occasionally. The hubby's reactions are better, which is why he gets many handmade items and the kitties only a few, but his reactions are usually confused smiles and nods with "thats great sweety!" The dog shows the most enthusiasm but mostly that translates into her trying to snot and eat whatever I am showing to her... I suppose thats just life tho :) Thanks for stopping in, feel free to leave a comment!

  3. So awesome. I’m going to head over to Hobby Lobby for sure. Hope they still have them at that price. I just love the way ink looks–so much brighter.
