MY ART STUFF

My Art Stuff

A guide to my collection of well-loved tools and toys to create paintings and projects for myself, for others, by myself, with others (usually the kiddos)

Notes:

  1. The hubby is an observer and supporter of the family’s creative mess (with occasional attempts to dabble with the rest of us)
  2. Does not include scrapbook stuff (which warrants an entirely different list)
