It’s pouring outside. Seems like the perfect excuse to not run errands and instead stay inside and play with paint & color. 🙌 #likeineededanexcuse

Jumping in a skirt turns out to be dangerous...😳😬 Luckily this photo didn’t have my skirt flying up too high. 😜 Happy to stumble upon this mural in Cambridge while on my way to the art supply store! Really, that’s a win-win kind of day! 💪😄

Do you remember this blue triangle I posted a video of creating last week? Well, I couldn’t leave well enough alone and so I went to town with my white Sharpie. 🙌 I find doodling totally addictive. Every time I do a little, I want to do more!! Swipe through the photos to catch all the details! 👀

I finally completed this hand cut spread in my art journal! It took me a few days, working in spurts and sections. I find hand cutting tiring on my fingers, wrist, and shoulder, but I also find it meditative. If you swipe through these photos, I’ve included a video of part of the cutting process and lots of detail photos. Enjoy!

Every now and then I get the itch to cut into my art journal pages. Hand cutting is a slow process, but I find it meditative. And the results are always 🙌!

There's something about crisp white ink that makes me swoon. I've looked for a good stamping ink for a while, but haven't found one that is (a) truly opaque and (b) dries on top of acrylic paint. So, I've been using printing ink instead and it looks great! Takes a little while longer to dry, but I think it's worth it.

Unpacking my teaching bag and finding treasures! Lots of demo samples to add to my happy stash of collage papers! (I don’t think I’ll ever make it through that stash, but I’m going to have fun trying!!) 💪
.
PS: If you want to take an in-person class with me, I’m teaching art and collage classes in NYC @theinkpadnyc September 22&23, a two-day #ScanNCut class in the Boston area in October, and a three-day mixed media collage class (with @natkalbach) in the UK in November! Join me!!

I’m sure this won’t come as a surprise to anyone: I like art supplies. A lot. Shopping for new art supplies is one of my favorite activities. 🤗Recently, I “accidentally” wandered into Dick Blick and “accidentally” bought enough to stuff to get the free tote bag of goodies. Oooops! ☺️😜 One of the items in the bag was their house brand of colored pencils. 💙💚✏️🧡💜 Being a curious soul, I decide to road test the pencils and compare their performance to my beloved Prismacolor colored pencils. Being a sharing sort, I also recorded the whole thing. 🎥 The video is on my blog and up on YouTube. The short version is: I think they’re comparable. The Blick ones are slightly cheaper, so that might be a decision maker. 🤔💸⁉️ Do you have a favorite colored pencil?!

You guys! I’m super excited to be demonstrating and selling the **brand new** ScanNCut DX 125 on HSN today. This machine is literally not available anywhere else. Tune in online or on your TV to see what all the fuss is about! Hint: This machine has it all!

I have the entire 8am hour. Plus I’m on throughout the entire day!! Besides the ScanNCut DX, I’m also demoing a serger, an amazing sewing/embroidery machine bundle, and the PTouch Embellish (ribbon printer). 💪 Tune in!

Is it too early to start planning for #carvedecember?! 🤔 Because that’s how I spent my time on the airplane today. I normally don’t plan a thing and just fly by the seat of my pants. BUT, one of my ongoing resolutions for 2018 (and the rest of my life) is to be more organized and get ahead of things instead of always playing catch up. I’m not sure if I’m capable of following a plan...😬 But at the very least, I sketched out some ideas and they’re there if I need them. 💪

10 seconds of stop motion fun (which took me about 10,000x as long to create 😬😂). But I have always loved the look of stop motion video and I am determined to get better and faster! 💪
.
This is the brand new ScanNCut DX. I will be demoing and selling the ScanNCut DX 125 on @hsn all day tomorrow (September 11) and kicking off at midnight tonight! 🎉🙌😁 Check out my insta stories for lots of behind-the-scenes fun over the next 48 hours. It’s going to be quite a ride!!
.
I have a few ScanNCut DX videos up on my YouTube channel, including the full video tutorial on how to create these notebooks using ScanNCut DX’s auto blade! I think you’re going to love this new machine as much as I do! 😘

Mom and I had a girls Sunday Funday! 👯‍♀️ We went to the Patriots/Texans game and ate our faces off! 🤤😬😜 It was perfect football weather, a great game, great seats, and the Pats won! It doesn’t get much better than that! 😁 As a fun fact, my Mom is a huuuuuuuge @patriots fan. She knows the roster inside and out and voraciously consumes sports talk radio, sports podcasts, sports articles, and sports news. She can trade stats and stories with anyone! 💪
