December is a busy month. The amount of holiday prep taking place could make your head spin. So, you may be asking, who has time to play with new art supplies? Well, before we all close the doors to our studio for the next month, let’s not forget about that magical week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. That week when life seems to slow down and there’s time to do more of what you love in life. This is the week I’m contemplating when I think of new art supplies. It’s quickly approaching, and I want to be ready.

With that week in mind, I want to share the best new art supplies at Michaels in December 2020. Enjoy the inspiration!

When I first saw these mandala dotting tools by Craft Smart, I had no idea what I was looking at. I did know that they looked like so much fun and it inspired a quick google search to figure it out. These tools are used to create dot art that many people use to design mandalas. You can see an example in this video. It was so fun to learn something new—and that was just from watching the video. I would love to try this in the coming year. Learn more about the mandala dotting tool here.
