My Big Girl Crayons! :)

Hi Everyone!
I thought I would share a picture of my color station. (My Big Girl Crayons)
Remember when you were a kid and got to open up a new box of crayons? The excitement of being the first one to use a brand new crayon was just over the top! ;) That's how I felt yesterday!

When I bought my very first Prismacolor pencils, I just bought the 72 pieces set thinking that I could mix any color I wanted with that many. I really could, but just wanted the ease of having all of the 132 colors. I found a company that had individual pencils on sale for .88 each so I sat down, figured out which ones I didn't have, and ordered the rest.
They came yesterday (Christmas LOL!) along with some really cool organizers to put them in. I spent a couple of hours sharpening pencils and organizing by color. It is going to be so cool having them right at hand and much easier to find!


I have 2 racks of Prisacolor Premiers, 1 rack of Prismacolor Verithins, 2 racks of Copics, 1 rack of stamp inks, 1 rack of Prisamcolor watercolor pencils, 1 square rack of Tombow markers, and the tall rack in back has all of my Gelly Rolls, and assorted markers. There are also acrylics, chalks, and my watercolor pallets.
OK....looking at all of my colorful goodies is making me want to get off of here and go color something.

Oh...the smell of Gamsol in the morning! Aaaaah! ;)

Catch ya later! :)

Hugs,
True :D
