December 28, 2008: New Toys

One of my Christmas presents this year was a set of Sharpie Permanent Ultra Fine markers. My plan was to use them for my mapping project. Sadly, a good handful of them were dried out, so I returned them, and got Bic Mark-It markers instead.

Either set had — from one perspective — way too many colors. From another perspective, both sets were feasts. Hopefully, all that color encourages me to play and to stop trying to organize my process before it gets going. (This is yet another instance of getting out of my own way.)


I also got two gift certificates to Barnes & Noble, one from each of my sisters. This helps me with my plan to buy a book once a week. I have two books to buy next week, Dawnkeepers by Jessica Andersen and The Wild One by Denise Agnew, so I’m off to a good start…

Bookstore gift certificates make me feel crazy rich.
