please help Your ideas count

question i am putting together some mixed media kits....things that really could be used on any question do you want lots of random stuff to try (cost more but more variety with out having to shop for it all) [$30-$40 range] or would you prefer project kits (geared toward a project or two with samples and only a little extras--cheaper)[ $15-$25 range]

let me know WHAT YOU THINK and you will be entered for a prize of one of our first kits

my journey

 I am from Cheyenne Wyoming USA, the windiest place on earth.... i was/am a stay at home mom working odd jobs along the way when we needed extra $ for our children--I have 4 children (3 girls and 1 boy) that are grown, 6 grandkids i have 2-3 nights and 3-4 days out of the week. my creative journey started long ago-- i taught myself to do decorative painting 25 years ago and then designed, cut projects and taught others to paint in my basement....i have created things ever since and before.....i owned a scrapbook store in Montana but lost it to a fire 3 years ago and that changed my journey and got me to search my heart which lead me to online classes to become a designer which lead me to art online classes that opened my artist heart i have to get comfortable saying i am a designer and artist cause the mean voice in my head tries to say i am not. an interesting story when Jeanne Griffin Oliver asked us (in creatively made class) to find a friend to talk to about our gifts i did not have anyone but when my dad died and i had to go to Texas last week i went to see a high school friend that i re connected with on facebook....I was surprised by what she said "that she was not surprised at all that i was becoming an artist and designer because she saw that potential all those years ago" WOW when i did not understand my heart....when i went to college my heart was pulled to art but i just had no one to help me understand that and i only listened off and on over the years. so 33 years later i am listening full strength!
