Holiday Gift Round Up #1 (Artsy!)

I know, and you know, that Christmas is not all about giving and receiving gifts, commercialism, or decorations. However, I do appreciate having this time each year to share my love with others in a tangible way. Yes... I know, that should be happening every day, but that doesn't mean we should ignore days set aside for special purpose... ;).

Besides, what better time of year to declare the Good News, 
the Advent of the Light of the World, 
than near the darkest days of the year... 
A time to look forward to with great 
With that in mind, and in the effort to try to help you save some pennies (and possibly earn a few myself, if you are so kind as to shop through my affiliate links below), I will be posting a few Holiday Gift Round Up posts as I see deals and bargains that I think are interesting. Most of these will be from Amazon, and prices *do* tend to change rather quickly and without notice there, so be sure to check the price before you put an item in your cart. The prices I have listed are current as of the time posted. 

Joanna Basford, one of the main artists involved in the "Adult Coloring Book" craze has her books on sale at the moment... These are a great option for those who are looking for intricate detail with a leless of a "Zen" focus...
  $9.89 (38% 0ff)                $9.89 (38% 0ff)               $10.17 (40% off)

A few more coloring books: 
$10.79 (52 p       $9.89 (70 pg)       $9.00 (52 pg)            $9.99 (80pg)

And some pretty pencils to color them in with.... 

$19.79  (49% off)

$36.97(57% off)

for the artist who is really serious 
about shading and blending.... 

$61.15 (46% off)
If your artist likes to color "on the go" as it were, this is a nice, easy to handle sharpener to add to a stocking, or small gift package...

If someone loves, or wants to try their hand at watercolor painting, I can recommend this larger set of Prang watercolors: 
$7.99 (27% off)
and I haven't tried this brand, but it looks very similar to a set I purchased years ago and LOVED (From the now defunct Pearl Arts and Crafts Store), and the price can't be beat! (Note, this is an add-on item...)
$4.54 for 36 colors
This is also similar to the set I owned, with good reviews, and reasonable price. I really like the Kohl-I-Noor set up... unique!


I even found some watercolor paper pads on sale...
                                                          $6.74 (50% off)

Lots of interesting products to consider for the art-lover (either yourself or someone you love) :)

I hope this was helpful/useful to you. Please do let me know in the comments if this type of post is something you appreciate.
