Kwik Stix Thin Stix

You might remember the Kwik Stix review I did a while back. We loved them and I am excited to announce that they have up graded to something a little slimmer. My girls love the new slim design. They are quite a bit thinner than the originals so they are a little easier to paint smaller designs with. They have the same great colors and use the same amazing solid tempera paint that the first Kwik Stix used. They dry in 90 seconds and you can use them on everything from paper to wood, canvas and poster paper. They are non-toxic and safe for young children. The new thin Stix come in 6,12,and 24 packs. For colors they have the assorted like the ones shown here as well as neon, and metalix colors. 
My girls are painting nuts with these things. My niece tries to run off with them ever time she comes over. They dry so fast that I can now put paintings away as soon as they are done painting leaving my kitchen table free for meals.

So this was my attempt at snow flake photography a couple years a go.  I think they were decent for a first go at it. I am hoping we will get some big fluffy flakes again this year so I can try to get a better one. I never thought getting an up close photo of a snow flake would be so hard. I could never seem to get the hole flake in focus. My skills have gotten a little better since I took these and I am hoping this years results will be better.

Good Morning!

Good Morning world! This was my sun rise from the office parking lot as I got off shift this morning. Yes I stood out side when it was 4 degrees just to take this picture.
