Art supplies are one of my weaknesses. For some women it's shoes or jewelry but for me it's power tools and supplies! BTW my husband thinks power tools are a great weakness to have...I purchased this vintage set of crayons from my friend Vicki on one of her ETSY sites, A Peaceful Life. Aren't they sweet! I especially loved the color of the petite box and was happy to be able to add them to my collection of vintage artist materials.
My electronic Bartlett Kiln Controller is still not functioning properly, leaving my new clay production anything but regular and predictable. There is an internal issue with something called MOV's and RF noise, which causes the kiln not to power up and maintain the firing properly. I do have some good people trying to solve this invisible and frustrating mystery. I admire Christine who is able "to get creative during setbacks." I want in on her secret...It's only January 31 of the new year and I think I have already lost sight of my New Year's goal...
Adopt the pace of Nature: her secret is patience.
