As if I didn't spend ENOUGH money at the rubberstamp convention last Saturday, I am NOW "on the hunt" for the Claudine Hellmuth acrylic Studio paints.
I had thought I would be able to get these at the rubberstamp show, but nope - no luck.
I went on Stampington's website to pick out the colors I wanted so I could place an order and pick them up tomorrow on my way to work (Stampington is just right down the street from me and around the corner) But no luck there either - all of the paints are on back order.
And yes, I've already tried Michael's. I had read that "select" Michael's would be carrying Claudine's products (as well as T!m's). Well, MY Michael's doesn't even know who Claudine Hellmuth and Tim Holtz IS! *sigh*
So, I'm putting this out there to all of you - especially if you are here in Southern California (hopefully in Orange County). Have any of you found these paints locally? I would like to avoid paying the really high costs of shipping if at all possible. Heck, I could buy an additional COLOR if I don't have to have the paints shipped to me *smiles*.
Hoping you are all having an art-filled week!
