The Joy of Art Supplies

Irish waxed linen threads
One of the staples of book-making is waxed thread, for stitching books together. I probably have more than I'll ever use, but I really enjoy having the availability of almost any color I could want, for my artistic expression. Choice is an important thing. So, like Brandi and Vicki's gem stones, and Terri's fabric, I have my binding threads, leathers and papers. It's wonderful and fun being an artist!

I love art supplies too! I didn't know you use waxed thread for stitching your books together. Makes sense! Your stash of colors is warm and rich and so lovely! Art supply stores are like a candy store, aren't they?!

I don't do much book making, so I have been able to resist purchasing every single color. I love this photo showing the wide array of colors. Nice palette :)

Art supply stores are TOTALLY candy stores! Eye candy, that is.

And with you - choice is SO important.
