It feels like November at last.

What is your mental age?
One of my favorite bloggers brought up this website.
After answering some multiple choice questions, it guesses your mental age:

My mental age is 43!
Close enough.
I was afraid my mental age would be much younger than myself!

This week, I did a few creative things.

Last weekend I went to Daiso and one of the things I picked up was a silicone mat.
I saw something similar at Michael's for $10, but this was $1.50 at Daiso.

The silicone mat came from the cooking aisle.
It is probably used to put under hot pots and pans.

I used it to make snowflakes out of hot glue:

Yesterday, I went to Art Supply Warehouse in Westminster.
I bought a few tubes of acrylic paint.
I forgot to look for powdered pigment.

I paid for a class in December, Cards and Mail Art by artist Jacki Long.
Jacki has her own blog, here:

I saw an ad for a class on how to use a new line of products called Marabu.
I didn't think I had time for the class, even though it was only a couple hours, but I did buy a few water-soluble crayons.

Classes at Catalyst:

I didn't get a chance to use the crayons, but I did put some of the paint I bought on a few pages of a book.

Lately my sketchbook hasn't been getting much use, but I still bring it everywhere I go.

The other day, I was upset to find the cat on the bed.
I put the sketchbook on her to encourage her to leave, but she just went back to sleep.
