I totally picked out everything in the above photo, but my lovely husband purchased it all for me as I couldn’t decide on what I wanted.  Both of these manga are amazing, and I can’t wait to start trying out some watercolor techniques.  Plus 3 new copic colors for those projects!

My first ever OTSP Secret Sister sent me this lovely Tamora Pierce themed birthday package!  Lady Knight is full of her personal annotations, and I can’t wait to read what she thinks 🙂
