|Scuffs Hardhead "Owlly"|
I see myself sitting in a Starbucks with a large mint mocha latte drawing everything that I see. Maybe I could even find some parks around here that I could draw my natural surrounding. I have the duckpond out back and those ducks are just begging to be drawn. (Ok, they're begging for duck food but I'm not judging, lol.) The thing is, just like Serena, I'm a bit trepidatious about trying to draw in public. The great thing though is that I now have the perfect travel set for urban sketchers all because of Serena, just the sweetest person ever!
What happened is that when I saw her Owlly I went hunting the brand down only to find it was not available in Canada or the US. Eek!! Serena is in Australia and the Owlly is an exclusively Aussie product, not for sale outside her lovely country. I left a bereft comment on Serena's blog, a tongue-in-cheek harangue that it just wasn't fair for her to show off her lovely new travel kit when the rest of us suffer without a totally cute Owlly. (I can be known for my sarcastic lip.)
|Scuffs Hardhead "Piper" Pencil Case|
The Owlly arrived yesterday even though both Serena and I expected it to take at least another month to arrive. YIPPEE, the Canadian mail system actually worked for once, lol. My Owlly is actually bright pink and called Piper, lol. Isn't it just the cutest? It fits everything I'll need and even some stuff I didn't think I'd be able to fit in any travel case. It just fits the large Moleskine cahier nicely and then the center part holds my pencil and micron pens and a smudger. In the back pocket I was so lucky that all of the colored Pentel R.S.V.P ballpoint pens fit perfectly along side my Graphitint Derwent pencil crayons. It couldn't be more perfect. The ballpoints shouldn't bleed through the cahier paper and the Graphitints will allow me to add just a hint of color. I'm so thrilled about how it all came together, it must have been kismet.
