I stopped in at Jerry's* on the way home from work today to pick up a piece of watercolor paper, and saw this bundle of brightly colored little Fabriano sketchbooks at the register. They've been up there for a while, but this time, one of the packages was open and I could touch the paper. The red book on top had paper that very white and with a slick finish.
"Well, that would just be good for pen and ink and not much else," I said to the cashier.
"Oh no. Each one has a different kind of paper. And they're on sale."
Those Jerry's people have figured me out.
"Well, okay then. I'll get two," I said. "It's not too early to start Christmas shopping."
All together now, to the tune of Happy Birthday --
Merry Christmas to meee.... Merry Christmas to meeee.... Merry Christmas very early.... Merry Christmas to meeee.
*I know -- I'm VERY fortunate to be able to drop into Jerry's on the way home from work. I really do know that.
Here's the list of what type of paper is in each sketchbook. Very fun!
Did I mention that they were on sale?
