Neocolor Watersoluble Review

Watercolor Neocolor ll


My brother bought these for me and I am really having fun using these. The colors are so pretty and I really like how they work with water, I never used a product like these and I am playing with them in my art journals :)

They are pricey he bought them at Amazon for $22 but I'm sure that Micheal's or another craft store might have them for better price, and I didn't know that they also come in other colors, will have to save and look into it :)

They write and draw so soft as well.

I like how they work with and without water.

I seen this picture in google and had to try and draw it, I am not the best drawing person,  but the colors are pretty

I also tried it mixed with watercolor pencil hmm will have to work on that one, I drew here when I seen the picture on google of course there's wa pretty and perfect hehe:) I have to much fun in my journals

The background pink is a paint :)

Pentel Coloed Ball Point Pens Review


Pentel Color Pens

I also bought these at the market when I was getting my groceries. They are perfect for my planner and journaling.. The ink flows good and there is no ink blob or mess in this batch :) Does not bleed through on my planner pages.


Here are the colors and how it looks.


Twistables Crayola Crayons Review

Twist Crayola's 

Every time I got to the market I always pass by the stationery side and I kept seeing the new twist crayons by Crayola and told myself that one day I will buy them. Well that day came and I did purchase them and when I got home I was trying them to see how they worked.

I really like how bright the colors arae and they are great for my paper crafts and journals I am making:)




Pretty colors, I am also using the magazine for cut outs and add to my journal pages for a funner look to it.

This is how the colors look like, they are more smoother that regular crayons to me. If you haven't tried these oh you have to give it a try.

Crayola Washable Color Markers Washable

Washable Markers Crayola


I wanted to try these washable markers from Crayola and see if I can use them as watercolors, I think I must of done something wrong I still have to practice with these and use other kinds of paper to see if they bleed through. It was fun..

Ok I used my water brush pen and wanted to see what happens. The paper I am using is a watercolor paper from Artist Loft maybe it's the paper I need a better one. The same one I always use.

The heart on top I used my water brush and the one on the bottom I just colored it in, The top one does not work very well, I might be doing something wrong. If you tried let me know please:)

I drew a box and tried to bring in the color and that didn't work. So I added a little water in the middles and colored it in. Here is the result.

Instead I colored it in

What I did next was use my waterbrush and take some color from the pen and use it to write these words, now if you want to use it for writing or color in drawings in your journal or art journals this will be cool to use.

I also tried it on paper craft the construction paper and here is how it looks no bleeding but shadowing.

Here is the back

All in all I do like the Crayola Washable Markers to use when I need some color in my journals:) Now to see what  brush pens or pens that will take the marker and not have the smear going on, Please let me know if there is a better water color paper you use.

DIY No Sew Pet Bed

Pet Bed Knotted


I am always looking for fun Fleece projects and I came upon this one video. I have done this cute pet bed  for a cat and will have it up on my etsy shop this weekend hope to. I want to share the video as well encase you would like to make your own.


I made mine for the ones who don't want to do it or can not at this time, I had fun making it for a little cute fur baby.

The material I used are 100% Polyester Fleece and the cotton is Silky Soft Ultra Plush Fiber both are washable and dry-able on low tumble.


Here is how my finished bed turned out, I stuffed it as well, 



The steps are so easy. I cut out 4" square on each corner and cut the strips

Then double tied the top and bottom strips together as knots

I bought a pattern for the top and a solid for the back.

Here is the video for you who would like to make one for your babies :)


Blankets will be next for this coming winter :)
