This new markers bleed right through this thin copy paper I have been using. Which I got for free at Staples with a mail in coupon. Can’t beat free. i have to use a material between the drawing and the desk. My desk looks like a marker came to a tragic end on my desk. Usually this time of year is rough for me yet somehow I am doing well. One I think its because I am so busy. It has been nice to spend time with friends and family. I love that the excitement the kids have for Christmas. It makes me want to have Christmas every day. I can’t make that happen so I will just keep drawing a little love each day.
