 It's been a good long while since I played along with WOYWW over at Stamping Ground, but I wanted to show of a new tool given to us (my daughter and myself) by a dear friend. My crafting is done from my bed for the past couple of years, and I'm forever losing just the very thing I wanted, off the side of the bed, or in the bedclothes lol. The Buddy Board has all these lovely strong bungees that fit over the toothed edge, and nothing, just nothing can escape from you.

It was wonderful to be able to get out all the colours I need, and not have to put them away when I'd had enough...only to try and remember which colours I was using when I feel up to doing a little more. It can just stay on the board until all is absolute little wonder, and such a clever idea. The work surface of the board is A4. You can find it HERE (in UK at least), there is a video link with it.

Image is a little darling by Mo Manning, pencils are mixture of Lyra and prismcolor - oh and an undercoat of promarkers (I'd not put much pencil on him yet)...I always have to lay down a light colour in promarker, then add pencil, otherwise I feel overwhelmed by all the white. Yes, I know I sound barmy, but so it is.
