Answering a few questions ~

I wanted to have a short post to answer a few questions that have posed to me over the months that I have been blogging. Please feel free at any time to contact me! I'm not always great about getting back in touch with you right away, so please forgive me. It's nothing personal - it's just me and my health stuff and my sometimes lack of tech savvy!

  1. What is the Coffee of the Day? It is the coffee that I happen to be drinking that day. nothing too scientific about it - no grand guru telling you what concoction you should be sampling - just what happens to be perkin' in my pot! :) and it's all decaf, which is tough because I really like the flavors and many don't come in decaf.
  2. How do you color your images? I have been doing a lot of watercoloring lately. I don't have any of the fancy markers like Copics that you see on many of the blogs. I just have my handy dandy SU! markers, which I do enjoy, but don't use as often now as I used to. I primarily just use the SU! inks (from the lid of the ink container), a little cup of water, and 1 of the 2 cheap watercolor brushes I own. I do a lot of shading with the inks, just like the pros do with the Copics. I'm a big fan of 'use what you have' since I can't afford the higher priced products. I also like to use my blender pens.
  3. Where do you get your supplies? I buy a lot of my supplies from Michael's and JoAnn's using those faboo discount coupons!!!! But I have several online stores that I really enjoy. You can find those listed on the sidebar of my blog. But I try to keep my eyes open for great finds everywhere! I am a bit of a snob when it comes to certain product lines, I confess. With the exception of the black ink, all of my ink and solid card stock comes from Stampin' Up! For decorative paper, I like Basic Grey, Daisy D's, and K & Co. the very best. My flowers are almost always Prima.

Hope that helps with any answers you might have been seeking! Have a great day!
