I use the stuff all the time. I am so sad that they are going out of business. There were posts going all around certain Yahoo groups yesterday about a possible substitute for them: Niji pearescent watercolor palettes. They are from Yasutomo. I have not tried them out yet. I have them on order right now. I will report back once I have tried them. They are very reasonably priced.
Anyway, the reason I am blogging is because I have found them and they are ON SALE right now! I have to tell you the story before I get ready for school. I was ordering stuff for the Quilt Festival yesterday from skybluepink. I needed to get the teeny buttons, a house book, and some other stuff from them. I was surfing their site to make sure I didn't need anything else. I figured that I might as well pay the mailing costs once. Well, I came across these watercolor paints. Talk about serendipity, luck, or whatever they would call it. I emailed her and told her all about what was happening in the Yahoo groups. She emailed me back and told me that she would put them on sale on my page. BTW, she still has charms on sale in honor of my charm swap (sorry, closed) and the Cloth, Paper, Scissors Magazine charm swap on that page still going on!

You have to know that I don't get anything for this at all. I don't get anything free nor do I get any discounts. I pay for everything just like everyone else. This is just a sale that is a great deal for everyone. I have been buying from skybluepink for years. I started buying from her when I first started doing art when I was stamping and doing domino art in a heavy way. Tim Holtz links to skybluepink on his website. Just thought I would throw that in. Haven't had my coffee yet. Need to go and get ready for school now. Have to do my spelling bee this morning. Will need to get the extra-large cup.
If you order the watercolors, come back and tell me how you like them. I will post once I get them and try them out. Later days!
