included in many of my classes is to create a A valuable reference tool called "supplies sampler". This is a valuable personal resource to keep track of your inventory as well as discovering the qualities of specific products such as paints, pens, markers, inks, etc. Many products perform differently in "action", than they appear on the bottles, caps or containers. Use a journal like mine in the video, or cut up cardstock "chips" and display on a small binding ring. Aren't you surprised at how many variations and shades of gold you have in your stash?

When creating decorative patterns with hand lettering, ALTER the variety of letters and fonts with upper and lower case, cursive script, printing and doodling. Mix and match various styles to create interest.
What a nice supply of painted wrapping paper and glamourous gift bags to refresh your wrapping center. Isn't this a great holiday stress buster, combing creative activity with "practical" end products? Who said we can't justify our art time and multi task?!!
