500 coloured pencils, how i covet you

five hundred coloured pencils! felissimo relaunched this set of 500 coloured pencils recently, and they're available to purchase by subscription - you pay $33 each month and receive 25 pencils at a time, for 20 months. that price includes shipping from japan. i can just picture the inspiration bursting out of my mailbox every month! you can buy the subscription over here at social designer.

i am so coveting these, both for the range of colour and the coolness of the whole idea and am really, really considering ordering them, although the overall cost of (i don't want to know but am still mentally calculating it - who said i wasn't great at math?) is a little frightening, i really would love to see them in the flesh. i would use them down to nubs myself, of course, but i can just picture opening my pencil crayon stash up to cole one day and him going "ba-ga? 500 pencil crayons!?!". picture that with cartoon bulging eyes, please.

Wowwwwww. I don't even draw and now I am fantasizing about pencil crayons.

So pretty.

i saw that too... aren't they so pretty? i would be nervous to sharpen the first one... and i would have this urge to want to display them like they have them in that pic, rather than having them in a box. ;)

i know - i can't possibly wait 20 months to use them all together, so i'll have to figure out a way to use & display them at the same time. and in a way that doesn't totally take over my space! oh, to have my office wall back - i had the perfect place for them at work. ;-)
