Diamonds and Wolves

As Christmas gets closer, I’ve been working on a diamond painting for my oldest. She loves wolves and dreamcatchers, so when I saw this diamond painting, I knew she would love it. So the purchase was a win-win – she gets a cool gift and I got the experience of making it for her.

This canvas is bigger than the owl I finished, but it didn’t take as long as I had anticipated, given the larger size. I gave the owl to my sister and she is having her husband mount and frame it for her. I’m hoping he’ll do the same for this one, so it will be ready in time for Christmas.

In the meantime, I’m still trying different stores and canvases to see what I like and what I don’t when it comes to diamond painting. For instance, designs with round drills are more plentiful, as are partial canvases (where only parts of the canvas are covered with drills). I prefer the square drills and full canvases. So now I’m trying a new store, Diamond Art Club, to see the difference in canvas quality and drill quality. Also, they use poured glue rather than double sided tape, so we’ll see if I like them better or not.

I did also splurge on a fancy schmancy drill pen that is a definite upgrade from the cheap plastic drill pens that come with most kits. I’m trying to keep myself from buying a whole bunch of accoutrements that I don’t really need. I did purchase the new pen and I did buy some additional storage, because there are always drills left over. My new kit should be here in just a few days, so I’m excited to have something new to work on over the holidays, and while I’m working from home.

I’m hoping to also spend some time finishing up my last batch of minis. I need to rig up a spray area indoors, as it’s now too cold to spray outside. Lots to do!
