Boosting Creativity via Jerry's Artarama

I have been complaining - I know, I complain too much - how there are few good stationery stores here in Austin, Texas, until the other day, Gentian (@Gentian - okay how did you even get your first name on Twitter? That's awesome. Anyway, I digress...) mentioned there is a Jerry's Artarama here in Austin. My visit to this wonderful place coincided with my first weekend alone after my parents left me!! So this may have been a bit of misery shopping, but the prices were really great, and I did my usual routine of going through the entire place, picking up everything I really fancied, then talking myself out of most of it. In the end, we spent $30. Not bad for all this stuff, right??

I have been feeling rather dead creativity-wise lately, and a several of you wonderful Tweeps suggested trying something new, or just getting back into it, even if it feels wrong, so that's what I decided to do. I acquired some new and fun utensils and bits, and I'm going to just jump in and try and make things (even if they turn out hideously).

Pretty fun, right? That's a bamboo pen up there, by the way. I first saw one of these on Tyler Dahl's blog and have been curious about them ever since!
