Tim Holtz Distress Crayons: A Review

Above: Test page and notes on this product. Earlier this month I posted about sketching with “Distress Crayons” from Tim Holtz.

TV: The Watch-a-thon…TV Shows Everywhere, What To Watch?

If you get Xfinity or Comcast, or whatever they are calling themselves these days (I can't keep up) you'll know there is a premium station "Watch-a-thon" going on through this week.
