Prismacolor Marker Set - You want it?

I just bought this brand new 24 count art marker set by Prismacolor. I decided to focus on my Copic marker set and I just don't need these. I just hate for them to go to waste. They are a high quality art marker used in many industries including fashion design sketch artists. They come in a carry case, however I already threw away the outside cardboard packaging cover shown below. This 24 piece set with carrying case retails for $103.00. Most popular online art supply store sell them for any where around $50 - $70. I paid $50.00. If you want it for $40 plus $6 shipping that would make me happy! I also have the prismacolor colorless blender as well. Add that one in for $5 if you want too. These markers have not been used once. Except the dark pink pen. When I first got them I made one sketch mark with that one when I opened the box! They are all in perfect condition. If you are interested let me know and we can do paypal. This is really a great deal!

Updated to Add:  These markers were sold!  Thank you Jogry in Bali! I hope you enjoy them!

Copic Markers!

I LOVE my new Copic markers. Their not your regular marker they blend together so nicely and smooth. That is a feature that makes them so expensive, but very well worth it! I now have 187 COLORS! Plus the colorless blender!! Oh joy! What fun! **Big grin**

My Art/Craft Studio

Just thought I'd share a few pics of my "work" area! I try to keep it organized and clean. I love having my counter space right in front of the window. It faces North so I never have any direct light shining in so that works out really good! I have a great view overlooking the front drive, my garden shed and the barn. Lots of inspiration to let the creativity flow!

My Shark Teeth Collection!

I have found some of the tiniest shark's teeth in the world! Most of you may not know I have not always been a country girl. In fact, I've spent most of my adult life on the beaches of Florida. Collecting shark's teeth was one of my most favorite things to do! I had a much larger collection (about 2 freezer bags full), but they were unfortunately stolen from me. This is all I have left, but I'm happy to have them! I put some quarters on the sheet to show some scale. Some of the shark teeth are very tiny as you will see.

There are several species in my collection, from sand sharks, lemon sharks, tiger sharks, reef sharks, mako's, and many more! Some not so old (lighter colored) and some prehistoric! That is so cool to me!

I have a few special finds as well. This is a piece of shark vertebrae.

These are whale teeth.

This is a cow shark tooth. Kinda rare.

This looks like some kind of canine tooth, but I'm not really sure. I found it in two pieces. I found the second piece about 2 foot away from the first. That was pretty lucky!

And this was extremely rare and special to find! It's some kind of prehistoric molar tooth. I showed all four sides.

I miss adding to my collection, but David and I plan on settling down there one day and I plan on adding 100's more!

A Cow Ant in my Garden!

It's been so hot lately that I haven't been in the garden as much (except in the evenings to water). But the other day I wondered out there while walking the girls and I saw a big cow ant! We see cow ants all the time around here, but maybe some of you don't so I thought I'd share this photo. This one is about the size of a large paper clip. Don't ever let one of these bite you. It can be very painful, or so I have heard. They are hard to kill too. You can just about beat it to death without it even flinching. You can even cut it in half and both ends will keep crawling. The back end will give out first though. If you leave them alone though, they will just keep passing through on their merry way, just doing their cow ant thing. Ps. I don't usually kill them, unless they charge at me! =)

The girls enjoyed ribs too!

David spoils them so bad! And they love it! They went crazy over their treats!
Emma is a little more well mannered than Francie!

Cornbread got his share of ribs too! This was him cleaning up after his feast!

4th of July at the River!

David and I spent a wonderful holiday at the river, enjoying the peace and quiet!
We had our own private luxury sandbar, with a built in tree for shade! I swear, people would pay thousands of dollars for resort quality like this! I mean just look at this place! And it's less than a mile from our cabin! I still can't believe how blessed we are to have this place.

David brought down the cooler and we setup the grill under the shade! (Yes, right in the water!)

I was very resourceful & hung some supplies from the tree! =)

While David was manning the grill, I played around the beautiful water!

We purposefully brought minimal supplies. David slapped on the sauce with his hands. We grilled the corn still in the husk. And grilled pork-n-beans still in the can. We brought 1 platter, 1 knife and 2 plastic spoons! No napkins, just dig your hands into the sand to clean them! We even got toothpicks right off the tree! Everything was so good! David is the best at grilling!

As always, we left no trash behind. We love our river!
