Day 24: a shopping spree

I went to Michaels last night to get supplies for the drawing class. I spent like two hours staring at a row of pencils. PENCILS. Weird because A) I had no idea there were so many choices and B) I really had fun staring. It’s hard to find the right place between awesome quality supplies, and fun stuff, and a reasonable budget. My 50% off one item helped a little. (Really little. Because while it was an item I wanted, it was not an item I was planning to purchase yet)

My little haul: Charcoal… I’ve never enjoyed charcoal. But maybe I just wasn’t taught how to use it properly. A mixed media book and a watercolor book, $8 each, a pretty good deal. A leather chamois. Too expensive for a tiny scrap. Two drawing pencils… that you can use a paintbrush on as well! I’ve been wanting these. AND 6 alcohol markers!! (Illustrator, by Spectrum Noir.) I’ve been planning to get copics but they are so expensive that I keep putting it off. And I don’t like the colors in the little sets at Michaels. I decided to try these while I had the coupon, and I love them! (So far.) I can tell I’ll be wanting the next set asap. That’s the trouble with trying new things. It leads to buying even more new things.
