and another one ;)

i've got one more new pencil set to show you for the time being:

bound to be a classic! this is 'swimming lessons' - koi on seafoam green and blue water :).

i can't believe how popular my pencils have been. i'm even starting to get copy-cats on etsy... i guess imitation is the most sincere form of flattery? ;p my pencils, however, are the only ones that come in this adorable size, with the best quality washi paper available from japan, and with no corners cut during assembly. and they are the only ones to come in a gift box ;).

that promotion is still running for a free pocket mirror with purchase of pencil set, but it's not going to last much longer (until the 15th of september, maybe?), so get in on it while you can!

in other, less exciting news, i recently found out that i most likely have ulcerative colitis, a chronic condition which is no fun. i've been having pain and extremely unpleasant symptoms for about 5 months now, and finally was able to see a gastroenterologist. i have a colonoscopy this week to confirm the diagnosis; happy thoughts are more than welcome! :)

I think your paper obsession is totally justifiable. SO pretty.

PS Bad luck on the colitis. What a bugger. At least a diagnosis you can better help yourself to feel good. Best of luck!

haha, i think it's justifiable, as well ;).

thanks for the well-wishes! it turns out that it is probably crohn's disease instead of colitis (they are very similar), but YES, it's much better to have a diagnosis (hopefully i will have one in a few weeks when the biopsies come back) than to be left unknowing. gotta get to healing :).
