yup, I've ordered myself 72 Prismacolour pencils, 2 packs of assorted paper stumps (tortillions) and a Prismacolour pencil sharpener from eBay. All are coming from the UK so I should have them by the end of the week.
I didn't want to buy a huge set, as I don't have room for them on my work desk - but some of the smaller 24, 36 and 48 pencil sets don't have all the colours I was after. So the 72 pencil set gives me a decent range of colours and it won't take up half my desk. They are loose, so I can store them in the galvanised plant pots I got from Asda last week - which reminds me, I need to take a pic of my Promarkers in the first 3.
I really enjoyed having a shot of Mar's Prismas at the weekend - the blending is very therapeutic and relaxing.
My BFF Pamela came round for a cuppy this morning after she'd been to the baby clinic with Emma. So of course that was as good an excuse as any for me to get the camera out. I took loads of pics, but I like these the best. The first one is of Willow tickling her, and the second is her laughing again. She is soooooooooooooo good, all she does is laugh and smile - oh and wiggle!
I've managed to make a couple of cards, just for fun...
Firstly here's my Gorjuss Girl - Sitting, in shocking pink. It doesn't seem to matter what colour you use to colour these girls in, they always look fab.
