  61. Rockin Robin Caldwell says:

    I haven't had the pleasure of trying out these products yet. I, like everyone else am feeling the "economic pinch" lately. I have had to scale wayyyy back on my art supplies purchases. Can't wait until the economy picks up and gets back on track. Until then, it is "bare bones/out of necessity" for me. Great project though…will see if I have suitable substitution products to play with. Hisses, Rockin Robin Caldwell
