My Artsy Wishlist

Milliande (see the link on the right) is doing a fun and generous Christmas giveaway - people are submitting their artsy wishlists and she will pick one (or possibly more) to have one item come true. I posted mine there, but I'm copying it here. Maybe I can point certain other people to it this way ;)

1. Subscription to Somerset Studio magazine
I love that magazine, and really need to get a subscription instead of buying it at the store!

2. Claudine Helmuth's Sticky-back canvas
I really would like to play with some - I've seen some interesting projects with it.

3. Inkssentials Craft Spinner for holding my Ink Blending tools:
Anything that will keep them organized is a boon!

4. Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint & Stickles by Tim Holtz/Ranger
I have been lusting after these for awhile, I really want to play with them!

5. Grungeboard - especially the holidays one, and the sets that are sheets you can cut into your own shapes
I love the very smell of that stuff, and it's fun to play with - I have a few sets, but always want more, more, more!

6. Golden Fluid Acrylics - I've heard so much about it, I'd like to try it

7. Watercolor crayons - I've never been able to find them in an art store around here, would love to try them! I have pencils galore, but they seem different.

8. Good video editing software for Windows - I'm getting frustrated with what I have!

9. Joe Miller Signature Watercolor Travel Set
It looks awesome! And so cool!

10. Leather or canvas map case/messenger bag that will fit my art journal/sketchbook, Kindle, small zipped case of pencils, travel watercolor set, my cell phone, wallet, and keys. Something worn and scuffed that looks like something Indiana Jones or some other adventurer would carry :)

Wish I were there:
Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens in Jacksonville FL

I used to spend hours there when I was in college. I would love to go back and see if my favorites have remained the same, or if my perception of some of those works has changed over the years.
