I am one of those people that sees something and decided they need it! That is how I was for Copics not fulling realizing I had no clue what I was doing! I bought a nice set of 12 and then followed by another 36! Sheila really needs to stop having these sales at SGD! But I just recently got myself a book to help me out and with any luck can actually make it to one of Andrea's classes to perfect. But in the meantime I am pretty happy with what I am doing!
