A year of Scrawlrboxes

As January's box landed on the mat it marked one whole year of my Scrawlrbox subscription, 12 boxes in 12 months.

Searching in my blog using #scrawlrbox will find you all the individual blog posts with the boxes in.

So I was quite pleased with how many of the boxes I loved and which ones I didn't. I think there were only 2 boxes that I didn't like: May's Highlighter box and July's one which I felt was a random assortment of supplies that didn't really work together.

I absolutely loved June's Box of Chameleon pens, and any box that supplied a Pencil/graphite stick and a fine liner. I really enjoyed Feb's Acrylics, March's Pastels and September's and December's Watercolour boxes.

What made it into my regular supplies? Well all the pencils, all the black fine liners except the artline pens (do not like them at all). The Derwent rubber, compass and now the little brass sharpener. All the brushes have been added to the brush pot and watercolours added to my watercolour box. Same with the Acrylics. Even though I didn't like the highlighter box the highlighters are in my desk/stationary stuff with the Isosketch tool and pentel correct express pen.

Now I am not a marker artist so the Magic Markers, Style file markers and Illustrator Spectrum noir markers don't have a home and live in a shoe box along with the scrawlrbox stickers, paper that i didn't use and the little info sheet.

The only art material that these boxes have made me want to buy more of was the Chameleon pens, as I absolutely love them.
