SMALL BLANK HARDCOVER BOOK
Author! Author!
Very popular with elementary school teachers, these hardcover blank books let students create their own storybooks. (Middle-schoolers interviewing and making books for primary grade kids is a popular and civilizing project.) Also great for sketching, journaling or scrapbooking. Pure white blank covers with (14) sheets (28 pages) of 80-lb blank paper inside with a sewn-in binding. You pick the 6” x 8” books or the 8-1/2” x 11” versions.

CUTTING MAT
We Wuz Framed
And we did it ourselves with this self-healing cutting mat. It's hard rubber and no, we don't know how it heals itself, but it does. Measures 11-3/4" x 8-3/4" x 1/8" thick, it's marked in 1/8" and 5mm increments and 1/2" squares, with lines for 45° and 60° cuts.

SUNLIGHT REACTIVE COLORED BEADS
Make Solar Jewelry
Take these (250) little translucent beads into the sunlight and they burst into assorted colors faster than you can say "assorted colors." How do they do it? Well, they're UV-reactive, that's how. Mostly pink, purple, rose, yellow and cream and they fade to a nice pearly color inside. Amaze your friends at picnics. Beads measure 5/16" dia x 1/4" with a 5/32" bore. Come with classroom application notes. Click here for the video.

EMBROIDERY SCISSORS
Stork Snippers
You should never snip a real stork but if you do embroidery, cutwork or other fancy seamstering, you’ll recognize these small, 3-1/2” long, stork-shaped scissors as the specialty cutters you need for that sort of work. Their tiny, 3/4” long super-sharp points will snip all the way to the tip.

DARKROOM CLIPS
Clips On A Wire
Made for your home darkroom, but loaded with dozens of uses for you creative types, this is a set of (5) 3/4" alligator clips, each on a 2" length of fine steel cable and strung on another 12" cable. Mount the 12" length, using the small ring or the removable 1-5/8" suction cup at each end. Hang pix to dry, multiple phone messages on a glass door, holiday/birthday cards on a mirror, freshly washed socks on a motel bathroom wall. Or buy several and accessorize any room in the house. It's a look that will drive that Crockery Barn bunch crazy with envy.

BAG-O-BUTTONS
Button, Button…
Time was, everybody's grandmother had a button box. Today's grandmothers are too busy updating their Mugbook page to cut buttons off discarded clothing, but you can start you own collection with this bag of approx 100 buttons. Very assorted, because you never know what you'll have to match. Sizes range from roughly 3/8" dia to 1-1/2" and they're sew nice you should get several bags.

WOODEN ARTIST MANNEQUIN
Fully Articulated!
We saw articulated, foot-tall wooden artists' mannequins just like these in a Paris gallery window last year, with all their little articulated parts painted in different high-gloss colors. Very harlequinesque, and many, many Euros. Our 12" mannequins are in unfinished wood, but if you've got paint you could get all avant rive-gauche and paint your own. Not that sensitive? Paint your local NFL uniforms on 'em. In a pinch, you could use them as intended, as artist's models, but where's the fun in that?

3D COLORING BOOK
3D Coloring Book
Kids driving you nuts? We think a 3D coloring book ought to tie 'em up for an hour or two. You get a book with (8) different pictures to color, including the ocean, planets, hot air balloons, birds, and others. You also get (5) markers, (1) each in orange, red, yellow, blue and green, plus a coloring guide and a pair of cardboard 3D glasses. It's almost like real life.
