My favorite kind of layout!  I missed the chat and haven't started on a page, but if my dh stays busy with his projects today and doesn't hang around I will start one!  Love the idea of doing a page around a song!  (Didn't I used to complain that dh was gone and on duty all the time?)  Smile.  Retirement is so different - I love it most of the time but.............

I have an IPad and I just love reading on it - it took me a long time to get used to it because I love the feel of a real book, but honestly I find it cheaper to download the e-books and like Conda, I like swiping to turn the pages rather than clicking on a button.  Plus I can do so many other things on my IPad -

In Topic: Copic Markers?

22 January 2015 - 07:45 AM

I've been thinking about Copic Markers for a long, long time now too.  I had a few and somehow one of the kids got ahold of them and so I no longer have them.....they are expensive, another addiction, and I think I think that with the Copic's I will be an instant artist......which I know is so not true!  


I had just a few primary colors and I was doing some Zentangle with them before they were "lost" and it was so much fun.  And I don't think I have ever seen them on sale anywhere.  We have a Michael's here but I haven't seen anything that lets one just "try them out".  


If I get them again, they will have to be hidden and locked away so the kids don't think they are "just markers" and up for fair game!

See, someone who understands me....



Oh, Joan has never uttered a word I didn't agree with!  :)  I love it!
