Copic Coup

Months ago, I ordered a bunch of Copics from Ellen Hutson for my dad. He used them for a few days and I don't think he has done much else with them. So after I did a bit of colouring with Emily's markers and then got heck for not putting them back in order and putting them in the wrong way, I asked my dad if he wanted to sell the markers back to me. And so I have managed to accumulate a very nice collection of Copic Markers! (No payment has exchanged hands yet.)
I can't seem to get the picture up, it is a most beautiful picture of my 36 markers, minus 1 because dad misplaced it.



Kerry took the day off yesterday. We started the morning off on a good foot. Had breakfast at De Dutch, did some boot and jean shopping, and he got a new mountain biking mag. Then we came home, I sat on the couch to watch soaps, usually I'm in my room working with the tv on so I'm productive. Not on this day, I stayed on the couch for hours. Then made dinner and then watched more tv. Howie Do It is very funny, Dirty Dancing is a classic, so I had to watch those. Oddly enough I wasn't tired when we went to bed.



I'm working on my Project 365. It's off to a rough start, the first week was great, I took a photo a day, I made my layout. Then the second week I took almost a photo a day, I didn't make my layout. 3rd week, not as many photos, 2 layouts behind. As of today, I'm caught up. I've let go the "gotta get a photo a day" business and am more a "get at least 7 different photos a week" person.

Emily's friend's grandma knitted and crocheted this Chain Chomp for him and Emily was modeling it for the camera. Very talented knitting!
