A Little Business and Blender Pencils Defined

1. The entries for OLW19 are STUNNING! I'm blown away by the quantity of entries as well as their quality. Y'all are the best!

2. To celebrate the awesome readers of Simplicity, I'll be having some give-aways in the next few weeks. Keep your eyes peeled.

3. Why do we say "keep your eyes peeled"? It sounds painful. But you know what I mean.

4. The blender pencil I referred to in today's earlier post is an actual Prisma pencil. You can see one HERE with an excellent description of how they work. They are very easy to use and really awesome for those of us finicky types who don't want to mess with odorless mineral spirits or baby oil. It's the best 88 cents you'll ever spend to help with colored pencils.


  1. I've never tried using this type of pencil. Oh I want to try it. So far I am not very good at the odorless mineral spirits thing. But practice practice right. Thanks for the tip Susan.

  2. I too, love my blender pencils. At the moment I am using a Derwent version but same end result. They really do finish it off a little don't they and as you say, without the hassle of any liquids in the vicinity.

  3. Susan, thanks a bunch! I'm thrilled to have that blender pencil info, as the mineral spirits thing doesn't appeal to me, I'm just too messy. I'd ruin an otherwise perfectly lovely card trying that! So a blender pencil TOTALLY appeals to me! Thanks so much for the info, and for the link to get one!

  4. Thanks so much for the blender pencil info. I'll be heading off to buy one. I missed last week's challenge as I went away to visit a friend and her litter of 3 week old puppies - the most adorable squidgy little things! So now must gear up for this week's challenge.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
