Bling Bling Says the Magpie...

Yes, that's me. I will admit it, I am a magpie at heart.

Fall has arrived, and with it some much needed rain. We had a lovely light rain well into the night last week, and in the morning, I found all these sparkling jewels, strewn out amongst the weeds, like diamonds and precious gems at a fancy jewelry store. I was so excited!!!  I will admit, I love bling..it's the Magpie in me. Love, love, love to look at the sparkle and shine.
The flash of light and the colors it creates,but in reality....

I do NOT want to take it home!!!
.
These jewels from Mother Nature are my very favorite kind of bling, hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed capturing the sparkle and shine they created, for the little bit of time they lasted.

There is no doubt in my mind that laying in the mud and wet was well worth it!

Prismacolor releases 18 new colors..whoot! NO CA Prop 65 warning label!


As a pencil artist who uses Prismacolor Pencils exclusively, it's always like Christmas when we hear of a new pencil color being released. It kind of takes away the pain and sorrow we feel when they stop producing a favorite well used color for whatever reasons. Some of the new 18 colors added to the Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencil line are more of the "old friend" variety.  It's so nice to see them again, and welcome to the new ones.. we hope you stay around a long time.

Rumor has it floating around the net that these new pencils carry the "CA Prop 65 warning label". I have contacted Prismacolor directly, they assure me that in incorrect. Our beloved Prismacolors are still non-toxic as always. 

Enjoy!!
