One of my favorite things is ordering art supplies from Opus . Most of the year I shop locally, but once a year at Boxing day week, I put in a big order from Opus art supplies in Vancouver. So imagine my delight at the arrival of 2 boxes of (very necessary !) stuff. More cradled board , some palette knives, a pen with a brush end, vine charcoal , some crackle paste, photo transfer gel and a kind note from the woman who shipped it off! I was practically dancing .Ask the cat. So now it's clear off the table and get to work.
