Oh my goodness! Today was a fabulous day for me. I just discovered an absolutely AMAZING resource for mixed media collage artists', scrapbookers, card makers, painters...heck even metalworkers! It is a magical place called Smartflix! I don't know about you but every time I go into a bookstore, craft store or art shop I can't help but feel a little depressed. There are so many books and videos featuring wonderful new techniques that I want to learn but my wallet (and husband!) are in the back of my mind yelling "No don't do it! That video will cost you $25.oo and you will probably only like 2 or 3 of the ideas! Put the video down and back away from the aisle!" Sound familiar? That is why I was Soooo excited to discover this resource. Smartflix rents DVD's for a small fee. They mail you your DVD's and they even pay for the postage both ways! You keep your video for a week and simply mail it back. What do they offer? You name it! If you are into it, they have it. I could not believe the endless variety from fine art and beading, to collage, stamping, scrap booking, card making, altered art, soap making and on and on. The only thing I couldn't find was Underwater Basket Weaving ( sorry, I couldn't resist!). You would really be doing yourself a favor the next time you see a technique video that interests you, if you STOP! Before you buy it check with Smartflix and save yourself a whole lotta dough.
