As an English Major, it sometimes kills me to not have anything to write about. I have succumbed to creating a video to express what is on my mind (or for some project) instead of actually WRITING.

Writing is therapeutic, it can be one of the most stress relieving activities anyone could do. Yes, it can be difficult, especially if it is not your strong suit.

However, once someone decides to write, they either find themselves stumped, or clueless on where to start.

This could be entertaining, could pass the time, and could very well help anyone who is in a funk.

Enjoy :)

I Wish I Had The Time To Test All These Supplies

If only I didn't already have an avalanche of art supplies to use up, I would be all over projects like this.

114
views

I love art and office supplies, one might say I have a borderline obsession with being prepared for any possible project. My favorite store of all time is Staples closely followed by Michael's Crafts. There is just something about these supplies that draws me in, inspires me, and gets me in the mood to be creative. Currently, I have reached a tipping point for the amount of art and office supplies I have. I am in maximum use up mode. This is why I have been making blankets, hats, and scarves left and right. Some are gifts, donated, or even sold on E-bay or Etsy.

That being said, if I had the time and the resources I would love to test art and office supplies to see which ones are the most effective and give you the most bang for your buck. I have done one art supply review thus far and that was when I was getting into micron-pens because the kit was on clearance and I had a coupon, plus a gift card. I had an absolutely amazing time getting to test and play around with the supplies in the mini kit and I still use all of them (except the paper) on at the very least a weekly basis.

Trying 30 Artist Erasers - WHICH IS THE BEST?! www.youtube.com

Youtubers like Kasey Golden and Superraedizzle do large batch product reviews like the video above all the time. I watch them endlessly. Not only are they informative as to what is the best of the best to use and buy, but they are also relaxing and organized which helps me to get rid of my stress during a day. I always watch art videos if a day has been stressful, and let's be honest this is college, every day is pretty stressful.

I don't always have the time to create my own art or the capacity for that matter, but I do have plenty of videos to satisfy my need for art in my hectic college schedule.
