24 new bottles of paint---YAY!!

alisandeMay 21, 2008

I took advantage of AC Moore's 3/$1 sale on Anita's acrylic craft paint. Does anyone use Anita's? I never tried it, but I got some lovely colors.

Some things make me happy just because I own them. A certain book, whether I read it or not . . . a lipstick in a great shade that is definitely not for every day . . . and painting or rug hooking supplies, even though this time of year I'm working outside in the garden.

Do you love to buy new paint, too?

Hi Susan and congrats on your paint buy. I don't think I've ever heard of Anita's, but we don't have ACM here. I do love new paint, but I usually end up with multiples of the same colors if I don't go with a list. I must tend to like the same ones. I get my happies from good finds at the TS that I want to paint even though I have so many now I shouldn't buy any more....EVER! ha
What makes me sad is when I have a specific color that I think would be the perfect addition to my paint collection, but everywhere I go it's sold out! So then I know for sure that all the other painters out there must think it's perfect too! ha It took me forever to find a bottle of Paynes Grey and I love it! ~Anj

Susan, that was a good sale on the paints. I've not heard of that brand either. I recently saw a flyer for Joanne's and they had Americana on sale really cheap, but I didn't have time to get by there.

Speaking of paints--what's the new Craft brand that Michael's and Walmart are carrying? Anyone know who makes them or what the quality is? They are always priced at 50 cents.

I used to use Delta Ceramacoat, but started buying Folk Art brand when I was trying to learn One Stroke.

You made me smile with your list of things that make you happy! ;o) Pretty paint colors, rose dishes or cups, lace curtains or doilies, and craft/painting books would top my list.
