Jaylene and I have been arting up a storm during the winter break. When we’re taking a break from creating, we’re writing book reports (Jaylene), and doing the great Chinese New Year clean out. We’ve also been rediscovering some art supplies. Here are some of our favorite pens:

Hmmm, I see a pattern, the fun of (oil pastels/watercolors/acrylic paints) without the mess. I guess being in cleaning mode is affecting how we create. Also the cold weather means we’re holed up in the art room with a space heater instead of being out and about. What affects your creating cycle? Does the weather have an effect, in productivity or themes or other ways? If you’re not making anything these days, what have you been up to?
