When I saw the Art Toolkit from Expeditionary Art, it was a matter of love at first site. Now, one is mine. All mine.
Maria Coryell-Martin is an expeditionary artist. She has developed this kit and the included pocket palette, to stand up to the needs and extremes of polar conditions.
It’s so wonderful, I knew you’d want a review. You can find it here at Doodlewash.
Maria has also given me a code for 15% off purchases at her website (good until April 30th) and a demi-palette with five extra mini-pans for a giveaway (now closed).
I wish I had one of the Art Toolkits to give you, but the demi-palette is pretty nice, too! It’s half the size of a business card and holds 12 colors. Truly, an on-the-go palette you can fit in your pocket.

One of the items I received for Christmas was an ArtBin Sidekick Art & Craft Supply Storage with Paint Pallet Tray. It’s fantastic for organizing and for traveling with your art supplies. And did I mention it comes with a paint pallet tray?

‘Tis the season that’s the reason for spending money on gifts for friends, family and, of course, yourself! Everyone’s compiling lists of their favorites and I’ve done the same.
There have been many innovative art supplies that hit the market over the last couple of years and many have become part of my daily use, so my list is made up of items that are just a little different in some way.
Last year, Alice Hendon invited the members of her ‘Tangle All Around’ Facebook group to submit tangle patterns for a book. Fifty contributors and 453 patterns later, Alice has published one of the largest collections of tangle pattern step-by-steps in the world.
