I can carry this smaller-sized journal almost anywhere which gives me a better place to doodle, jot down thoughts, and create — as opposed to what I usually do, which is ju..

Putting Pen to Paper Projects by Christen Olivarez
I’ve wanted to play around with Montana Acrylic Paint Markers for a long time now, so when Shoppe Manager Vanessa Spencer brought a set by my office, I was very excited. There are a lot of paint markers out there, and I’ve purchased just about every kind, only to be disappointed. They just don’t work the way I want them to. The paint is often very transparent and runny. When applied on top of o..
