Hey Friday.

It’s been quite a week! Last week we brought back our holiday party (such fun!), this week Becca got glasses, there was loads of rain (yay!), and Elizabeth has pneumonia. So in other words – always expect the unexpected!


I’m toying around with the idea of a list based Friday post. I’m toying around with a lot of things actually – from ways to get more content here to being more effective in general to cutting down on my sugar intake.  Anyhow. This week I present five craft products I am using like crazy.

1. Dina Wakley acrylic paints. I love taking white acrylic paint and just adding spray/mist to it for color. But these paints are so thick, rich, and the colors so beautiful I can’t help myself.

2. Ranger Texture Paste- it is light, dries quick, soaks up color mediums beautifully, and I’ve gone through 3 containers now. Re-ordering here in my world is the ultimate endorsement!

3. Sakura field watercolor set. The best, and my favorite way to add sheer colors and layer onto the things I make.

4. Fiskars desktop trimmer. Oh there are newer ones, and I’ve used and liked other models and brands. But here’s the thing. I only lasted 2 weeks without this one (mine, an original maybe even prototype perhaps finally broke after 6-7+ years)… and I ordered a new one.

5. PPA. People ask about liquid adhesive all the time… matte finish PPA is THE stuff. It seals. Is archival. Dries invisible. People ask all the time and the answer has not changed in MANY years. This is the stuff.

  1. I love the Ranger paste too, and have to try the PPA and the Dina Wakley paints. I hope Elizabeth feels better. Michelle t

  2. You do love PPA! I always forget to pick it up when I’m out and end up using white school glue, which is okay.

    Here’s to good health in the Flaum household [I’m lifting my Dunkin Donuts pumpkin coffee to you].

  3. Hope Elizabeth feels better soon. I hate when the little ones don’t feel good. Love your list. I need to try the PPA. I use a ton of Matte muti-medium and it sounds like it would be a good addition to the arsenal.

  4. Sorry to hear about Elizabeth – pneumonia is no fun at all. I’d love to see pics of Rebecca in her glasses!! Love the list!

  5. We all know that Fiskars is a wonderful company with exceptional products. I had a thought …..you know that our scissors have a lifetime warranty…I wonder if they will send you a replacement at no charge? Fiskars really stands behind their quality:) I had a recent woohoo moment with Sizzix.. I had the Big Shot with the motor for 6 years ….motor locked up ..called them to see how to fix it …they just sent me a brand new Vagabond for replacement! In this day and age, we automatically assume “limited warranties” …but it sure is nice to have great companies that really know the meaning of warranty 🙂
