another year older

These years birthdays are coming too quickly, but I do love the cards, emails and flowers I get from my family and friends. I usually buy myself a gift. This year it was the smallest traveling sketch kit I could devise that would fit easily in my handbag or pocket when out and about. The small Moleskine watercolor sketch book, tiny watercolor set, niji watercolor brush, pigma micron pen, mechanical pencil and eraser all fit in a small Eagle Creek ditty bag. What a great gift!
