So I turned on the Pitch Perfect station on Pandora, clicked that mouse, and went shopping!
I chose things that I either cannot find in Idaho or that I would have NEVER have kicked down the money for, had I not had a credit, because in my mind, not using "real" money makes it easier to shell out exorbitant amounts for a supply that I have always wanted. I know, it's a bit delusional, but when it comes to buying art supplies, sometimes it's just best not to think about the net worth of your art supply arsenal. Plus, you forget all about that kind of thing when the UPS man shows up at your door with a box full of awesome!
That's right! I bought myself not one, but TWO sets of Copic sketch markers and a set of Copic inking pens.
After all my experimenting, I came to the conclusion that I like the Copic markers a little better. That's not to say that the Spectrum Noir pens will sit idly on my desk, I think that with a bit more experimenting, I can avoid some of their obstacles and I'm ALWAYS happy to have a reason to play with new art supplies. I am a LUCKY girl!
