Tools & Supplies / Re: Bailey's Irish Cream

Arghh I can't stand Bailey's anymore.. only because I overdosed on that stuff in college. One taste and it brings me back to assignments, group projects, last minute deadlines, zero bank accounts...  ;D

It is understandable.. I have paid a lot of money for supplies as well. I mean you're gonna use it anyway and it is for pleasure. And tax deductible at least! Let us know which you like best.

That is really cool!!!

I like the classes but I think I'll be going to Letterworks instead. It is in Utah this year and much closer to me. I'm a little nervous about it though as I know it's much different from Iampeth..

Absolutely amazing. I wonder how big the original is, considering all the fine detail in the artwork.

Yikes that sucks.. I'm sorry. Will rust remover work? Soak it in WD40 or something?

Oh I'd definitely wait for container store to come before buying anything major! You will get so many ideas from there!

Congrats on the studio move!! I love moving and reorganizing my stuff. I recently got a IKEA Kallax 16 shelf ( unit and best thing ever. I get the drawers that come with it and everything is super organized.

Another great purchase was wall mounted magnetic containers called the Urbio Perch: ( I put my actual writing tools into these and just reach for the wall if I need anything. This keeps my desk free of annoying little rolling pencils, pens etc. And underneath I tuck my envelope rack made by the amazing Rebecca Sinnen.

So I guess my most used items on my actual desk would be the oblique holders, ink and water wells, paper towels (which I tuck under the desk), OTT lamp mounted on top and various papers..
