My #1 favorite tool

My computer. My life would be devastatingly diminished without my computer and my internet connection. I have always been a curious person and the computer has the answer to almost all of the things I want to know. I can learn from a multitude on Youtube or spend some time on DMTV with the Kemshalls or visit any artist and click on images of their work. On my browser (address bar) I can type in a question and Time/Warner will electronically whisk me to the answer. In fact I can make art with a stick in sand but answers, oh my, are all it for me.

I love color and I use dye and wax to to create colors and images on fiber along with  my 4' X 8" printing table and silk screens. I also love the Dollar Tree and can find all the cheap tools I want there.

This will sound like heresy on this blog but I could live the rest of my life quite happily with my watercolors, pens , pencils and sketchbook.


  1. Thanks for the reminder, Beth! One of the greatest learning tools we have is the internet... like having a library right in our homes, and it's open 24/7/365!

  2. Now you challenged me how to write about MY favourite tools which happen to be the my pencils and my computer - a coincidence?

  3. I can tell I have been on Facebook too much lately. I was looking for the "Like" button after Tie-Dye Judy's comment! Thanks for sharing some of your favorite tools, Beth.

  4. I could live the rest of my life happily with... my computer!! I so agree with you. I'm glad a wrote my post (planned for sunday) before reading yours, because the number one tool for me, is my computer, but it is such a integrated part of my being, that I didn't realize to mention it. Thanks for sharing!


We would love to hear from you and even better have some links to your work!
