Splurge! A Whimsical Illustration Featuring My New Copic Sketch Markers

My new Copic Sketch markers arrived in the mail yesterday and I’ve been having a blast “playing” with them.  Along with the 3 sets I ordered (6 pens in each set), I also got a set of Stabilo fine line markers.  It’s like Christmas all over again!  Of course, it would be nice to have a computer that worked (maybe Tuesday?), but my husband has been graciously letting me borrow his for the time being.

Back State-Side and Reminiscing…(Whimsical Pencil Sketch by Joana Miranda)

Although we arrived home from Denmark only yesterday afternoon, my jet-lag seems to be in control already.  I’m back at work teaching, running errands, and catching up with life after having been away for two weeks.  Unfortunately, I haven’t yet been able to solve my computer issue, so I can’t post any photos from my travels yet.

In the meantime, I’m reminiscing about…


Cold but sunny cloudless days in Copenhagen,

Cafes with delicious coffee and pastries,

Quaint cobblestone streets,

Picturesque canals,

Burgers and a beer with my husband on the harbor,

and of course

Fabulous Danish licorice!
