Oh, boy! Shopping!

Let's see....do you have a nice BIG paper cutter? One that will cut full size matboard? Or even a
matcutter is good. I find my drying rack very helpful, and a wares cart. But that would be
ceramics. One thing I did not get when I opened this facility was a slab roller and I regret that.
I got a wheel, which is really not very useful. But that's next year, right? I'd get a good set of
videos on artists, and some techniques. And personally, I'd upgrade my computer so I could edit
video on it and produce my own instructional stuff. A couple dozen drawing boards with clamps on
the top are great. And lots of big, clear plastic boxes for storage. And, come to think of it,
some not so big ones. I don't think I'd buy a whole lot of books. There is always the library, and
you have access to the web, obviously. Books get dated really quickly. One thing I have also
enjoyed is hanging files rather than standard manilla folders. Easier to organize and access.
Let's see...I'm looking around my room. How about a few light boxes? Cool scissors with edges that
cut patterns.....hole punchers that cut little shapes....a paper-making set up.....a marbelizing
set-up (big shallow trays).....an iron...a blender....a hair dryer....dremel tool....one of those
little tiny drawer organizers....bead looms....

Whew, I'm exhausted! That's all I can come up with now. These are all things I use all the time.
