The paper doesn’t cost much, but the ink, unfortunately does.
A friend recently told us about HP Ink. $2.99 for 50 pages payable monthly. $1 per every 10 extra pages over the 50.
We were spending $43 for two cartridges – 1 black, 1 color – for our old HP printer…times two printers…total $86. Every time we went to the cash register to pay for them, we squeaked. It was painful to fork over that much money on tiny little printer cartridges.
It didn’t take a pair of rocket scientists to figure out which was the better deal…and we weren’t rocket scientists.
To qualify for the program, we had to purchase an HP printer that was compatible. That was easy. Go to Walmart, spend $25, take home a new printer and set it up. We bought two, one for hubby’s office and one for mine. We bought the same model printer and did one $2.99 monthly ink subscription.
I’m NOT naturally gifted in the coloring department. Not. At. All.
If someone is “artistic” in one area, that doesn’t automatically guarantee they will be artistic in another area….like, say…oh…coloring in my own line work.
As a professional illustrator, I HAVE to be able to color in what I draw. Unfortunately, coloring is NOT my gift. I can draw, but I can’t color. That’s NOT good for a professional artist.
I have to ask others who are good colorists for help in that dept., and lucky for me, there are lots of good ones out there in the area I’ve chosen to specialize in – adult coloring and stamping – who love to color, are good at it, and kindly and graciously volunteer to help me.
After I Publically beg for help.
I have met so many nice people through this method, that I actually look forward to having to ask for assistance because I know I’m going to get some new wonderful friends, as well as some great coloring, out of the whole deal.

Or do you just like to buy awesome papercrafting supplies, put them on a shelf so they look nice and admire them?
