Week 37: Moleskines make me want to do things.

Moleskine makes really cute watercolour notepads. I bought one last year, thinking it would inspire me to take up watercolouring (the same way I expected their notebooks to make me write, sketchbooks = draw, squared notebooks = cross-stitch, etc.). I'm not sure I have the patience to really understand how watercolour paints work, but they sure are fun to mess around with. Who knew one teensy, tiny tube of burnt umber could yield so many acorny shades of brown? I've also just discovered watercolour pencils and while I'm not sure how real artists feel about these, I think I love them.
