And here we have the covers and inside covers for my China journal. I will be leaving on that trip in late April. I can't wait! China has been on my dream trip list for many, many years.
I have treated myself to a new watercolor palette and a few more tubes of Daniel Smith watercolors. I love the DS paints. I am not much of a watercolorist but I like to travel with watercolors as they are easy to pack. My new palette is small and holds a lot of paint. I think it's going to be perfect.
And, finally, I have to share a picture of my "helper." My cat, Orcie the Great and Terrible, calls this lolling by the computer, soaking up the heat from the infernal machine (his words, not mine)"helping." I'd have to say, not so much. Really. He's not helping. (Please ignore the terribly messy desk. It's one of those things I should be cleaning instead of blogging!)
