Creative Christmas Bounty

I thought I would share some of my Christmas bounty with you. DH is very supportive of my creative endeavors. He never really says much but the gifts he gives speak louder than words I think. The Fountain Pen books shown above is my collection. I had one, some wonderful freinds gave me one and DH gave me two that are more difficult to find. Yahoo ! I have already been able to learn a lot ! You really can't tell it from the photo but that big box is a home studio lighting set! I will now be able to take some better photos of my quilts - and other things too. This lighting system had been on my wish list for a long time. I hope to work with it this weekend.
Last, but by NO means least, here is my art supply bounty- WoW - I could hardly believe it when I saw these boxes filled with TONS of paints, some mediums, a variety of sketching pencils, colored pencils & many new brushes !!! I know there was a freindly elf helping DH with this - but it was such a great surprise. Just in time for a new quilt that has been percolating in my head for months ! Doesn't it just look good all together?!!

Maybe you'd like to trade husbands next Christmas? Tell Scott from me that he's the King of Christmas bounty and appreciated vicariously by your friend.

Wow - what a haul. You must be thrilled. Now you have no excuse to turn out more beautiful work. I never knew there were so many books on fountain pens!

Wow, what a great stash! You're lucky. I look forward to seeing some paintings in the near future.

I am a pen junkie, too. Love your pens.

Happy Holidays, Marie!
