It’s a better alternative then killing time on my phone and these would be a great start to helping me better utilize it as well. Thank you for your generous giveaways your too kind. ❤️

  3. Oh my, everyone has such good ideas so far! I would have to include all of those as well. And oh, maybe a prepaid limitless credit card for everything else I could imagine!

  4. I would want a dream kitty to put into a dream tote like that. That would be a dream, but in reality, I would use it to go to my crops with my essentials like pens, pencils, watercolor tin, glue, scissors, and such. That would be nice, especially with the new items listed as well!

  5. Copic Brushmarkers, Drawing IPad, my camera along with nice bottle of wine, cheese an grapes for a warm sunny day to spend time creating for myself an not having my cats trying to help me paint…..need I say more….yes….SET MY CREATIVITY FREE…

  29. The filled tote would be a great start! I would add some watercolor brush markers, gel and glitter pens, a bottle of water and some M&Ms.
    thanks for the chance to win this giveaway!

  30. Well that’s easy: everything on the giveaway list. Lol. But really, once u go Hahnemühle, u can never go back. I also love the Zebra pens. And boy, a new tote is definitely an exciting thought. U don’t even wanna know what I currently carry art supplies in. 🙈 Thanks for another exciting opportunity to win fabulous things!

  31. What would be in my tote???
    Well, I’d start with My Bullet Journal & all the supplies I need for it. Then I’d add all the Zentangle supies Zentangle supplies + micron pens & color pencils & as much spare paper O can manage, along with a couple of sketchbooks.

  32. I would fill my tote with Zentangle goodies, chocolate and a puppy. Because not matter what else happens, your day is always great with a puppy! Thanks for the contest!

  33. Well first of all this is a great tote so, I would use this one and fill it with everything here plus a small traveling watercolor pan set and some pencils.
    I cant believe I’m trying this again .I just couldn’t resist as it’s such a fantastic giveaway and blog of course!

  34. I do carry my charcoal pencil and sketchbook everywhere now but if I could carry around the whole set along with watercolor paints that would be perfect.

  35. OMG, what an awesome giveaway. Always art supplies for me. I’d fill my dream tote with a Lamy Safari fountain pen, a Sailor De Mannen 55 Dregree bent-nib pen, a Pilot Frixion Erasable gel pen, palette of my favourite Daniel Smith watercolours, a mini mister, a wad of paper towels, a Pentalic 5×8 Aqua Journal, a Stillman and Birn 5×8 sketchbook, a Rosemary Sable B!end 1/2″ Dagger brush and the 4-pc set of Silver Black Velvet Voyage brushes.

  37. Oh! I’d like to fill my dream tote with the best watercolors and paper available. And brushes. Ohhh, really beautiful brushes. And all the different Hahnemühle products. Of course, this would have to be a Mary Poppins bag, right?
    Thanks so much.

  38. Ahhh, in my dream tote: It would be lightweight, hold a lot and have wheels because I always need everything! For painting – a filled 48 pan set of Dan Smith watercolors, artist grade paper in several types/weights in a refillable book. Water carrier and bowl. A few Kolinsky sable brushes – and a nice synthetic wash brush. Oh, and a stool and flexible easel. This all will be very lightweight since as it is put in, it shrinks to fit, expanding as needed. It’s that shrinking and expanding bit I need a bit of help with.

  39. First of all I want to say that winning the art supplies in your tote would already be really amazing! SO MANY GREAT SUPPLIES! 🙂🙂🙂🎨🎨🎨
    And to answer your question:
    my dream tote would be filled with colored pencils, watercolors, charcoal pencils, cute erasers, watercolor pencils and watercolor paper 🙂 I just love drawing!

  40. Ooh! If I were lucky enough to win, I would add my charcoal pencils, a mixed media sketchbook, my travel watercolours, and my silver black velvet brushes.

  41. Becaus of overpacking art supplies for a trip I took a few months ago, I know exactly what supplies would be in my dream tote: a sketchbook with paper that can stand up to layers of ink, some pens that make sharp lines that won’t smudge, bright-coloured markers (watercolour or alcohol) and coloured pencils.
    I’d also have to leave room for snacks; the more chocolate the better 🙂

  43. The Hahnemühle and Zebra Zensations products that I’ve purchased have never disappointed. They work together like butter on toast. I especially love the tin with paper tiles inside. They are wonderful.

  44. My dream tote would be jam-packed with high value gift cards to all the local craft and art stores and online sellers, so I could experiment with any tool, supplies or techniques that catch my attention without having to stress about whether I am likely to keep up with it and how expensive it is.

  45. Ok I’ll be the one…. a bag full of $100. bills! I will buy some supplies and head to Florence to study art! ❤️
