malmow--- i had a really hard time finding white gel pens too. but i finally found one in the bi-mart scrap booking area.  its a very small section of the store, and here, they keep it with the electronics.

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.

I love all the latest pages!
I've been looking for a white gel pen, and I can't find them anywhere. I had scads of them when I was in middle and high school: white, silver, all kinds of pastel colors. If anyone knows where I can get one let me know. Until then I'm making do with a white-out pen.

I love the Sakura brand white gelly roll pens (or all their pens for that matter): http://www.sakuraofamerica.com/

I get them at Michaels since my local JoAnn's no longer sells loose pens, only sets  Angry

Mine are gelly roll by Sakura too, although I got mine at Collage which is a scrapbook/art store here. She sells quite a few colors singly. I haven't looked at the Michael's here lately for them, but I know they used to carry a lot of Sakura pens. I think they still do. I love sakura pens, I never seem to have a problem with them not writing when they are still full of ink.

I'll have to get me some of those. I hate when gel pens decide to stop working. I've tried opening them up and blowing into the bottom, dipping a safety pin into the ink and writing with it, etc. etc.

I live too close Grin to a big office and artist supply store. They have millions of pens and paints, plus all kinds of moleskin books and other stuff I always feel I have to have......
So I must go there, I am pretty sure they would have white gel pens.

I just bought a chalkboard pen there. So much fun on my grey chalkboard kitchenwalls Cheesy

I have been seriously ill. I will get back to everyone to finish up all swaps and stuff. I am home now.

I was just at michael's this weekend and in the scrapbooking section, they had a big variety of pens, including several brands of white gel pens, all sold individually. I was debating on whether I should buy one, but I ended up buying an ultrafine black micron pen instead. That is also a VERY good brand! Now I wish I had also gotten the white one!!! Darn you craft store for being so far away!!!

Let's swap lil gelli prints or ATCs!

Yes! I've gotten some really awesome pens from craft stores, but I'm wondering if anyone has found a quality yellow paint! All the paints I've tried always need like sixhundred coats!

I am not near any of those stores:( but thank you all for the input. Next time I am near a Michael's I'll be on the lookout!

I'm dying to join this craft-along!

I am obsessed with my journals. I can't operate without them. They catch all of my arty thoughts and ideas and keep them from spilling everywhere. I don't remember a time when I haven't thought about words and books and paper..... I probably spend the most time of my Barnes and Noble trips in the journal department, opening each journal, looking at the lines, feeling the paper...... I have a stack of journals that are all empty, just because I couldn't resist buying them for one reason or other.

I lost one of my journals once and nearly had a heart attack.....

I posted a large portion of my current art journal in this thread: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=325975.0

I'll post more pages in this thread as they develop!

I like owls. I am forgetful and clumsy. Zombies are cool. My life is filled with awesomeness and yours should be too. ^.^
