New toys!

Today was like Christmas! On Monday I start an online class at MQR, "color and design for art quilters". Well crayons, either prang or crayola was on the supply list. So, I send Don out to get the crayons..we need a box of at least 24. Well looky what he came back with! I didn't even know they had boxes of 120. And, there are NO duplicates!! ...I checked :) Just 120 different, glorious colors! How cool is that!
Tomorrow is Don's birthday. My birthday is still a month away. I have been wanting a Wacom Bamboo Fun Tablet PC for a while now. So in honor of Don's birthday, I ordered myself one! ( How's that for logic?) Don't worry, I bought him a present too. Anyway, my friend the UPS man delivered it today! And boy am I having fun!
It does take a little getting used to using the pen, but it comes pretty quick. I've already been playing in Paint. While I'm recovering from surgery I'll work on learning to use it in photoshop and corel painter.
And wait till the granddaughters get hold of it! Might be a good birthday or christmas present for them. just think of the creativity we could unleash!
