A deal for those of us who didn't win big in Vegas

I'm finally back. My sincerest apologies for being gone so long. Sandwiched between today and valentines day, I was retreating in Vegas for 5 fantastic art-filled days. A retreat that took 5 days prior to prepare and 5 days after to recover. So I agree "retreat" is hardly the word especially when combined with "vegas", but on paper it did say Art and Soul Retreat. More on that coming soon. In the meantime, I thought I'd share this find (If you use cheapy craft paint with as much joy as me) that I stumbled upon over the weekend at Michaels. Americana paints (reg. $1.19) are on sale for 69 cents through March 6th. If that wasn't good enough, there's a rebate out for $5 back on ten (form found hanging on the paint shelf at my store.) This makes paint as low as 19 cents per bottle! What a great excuse to try out some funky new shades (regardless of how the slots and the tables...eh hem...treated you.)

I'm still muddling through catch up work (and unnecessary trips to craft stores), but I'll be back in a day or so *promise* with a complete retreat recap.

You paint pusher you!
Can't wait to hear about A+S. Specially cause I have applied to teach with them several times and been rejected, ugh. Oh well. Can't wait to hear about what you did, etc.
And how is that little kitty doing?

Totally guilty of being a paint pusher! Can you imagine how much happier the world would be painted Electric Pink?! : )
