If you're a tween and you've found 12:34, you're looking for something a little different than what many kid craft sites have to offer; toilet paper roll crafts might not seem as cool as they once did and perhaps you're looking to try your hand at something with a little more style. At 12:34, we hope to bridge the gap between projects for little kids and projects geared towards teenagers and adults. We try our hand at art, crafting, stamping - if we think it's cool - we'll try it. Thanks for dropping by! N&K

YouTube Spotlight - Doodle Art with Christy Tomlinson

Christy Tomlinson at the Scarlet Lime is a delightful teacher and we think her work is FABULOUS inspiration for tween artists and older artist alike. This particular video is inspired by Alisa Burke and a piece of art she created for her home.

Kia might just be Christy's BIGGEST fan ever. I enrolled her in the SHE art workshop and every day she checks the Scarlet Lime channel on YouTube hungry for more videos. Instead of working on canvas, she opened up her latest art journal and just went to town right there in her journal. I LOVE how it turned out. A good black marker that won't run when wet and some watercolor paint or crayons will really be all you need for this one!
