Oh yes! I also bought some finely sanded wooden panels of basswood that still have the bark on the edges that I'm going to attempt to paint on. I'm excited - I love painting on unusual substances. The surface of the wood has been treated for any sort of finish, and is really smooth - almost like masonite. I'll paint some cool foresty-faery scenes I think. I might do some of that tonight! I'll let every one know if I get time and get the webcam ready =)
I looked at some new webcams too while we were at Office Max - it looks like I could get a pretty nice one for around $100. I'll probably get one after we move!
Oh yes - I got the Comcast thing straightened out today - I'll get my digital cable and modem on April 9th between 8:00 and 12:00 am =)
