Drawing pencils were cut to length and sharpened.
For the books, I simply cut down a larger sketchbook to fit inside the lid. I found the sketchbook in a trashcan when I was walking home from Felicitous awhile ago (merry Christmas Annie and Adam, here is basically a pile of reused trash). The book had significant water damage on the bottom edges of the paper; I'm really glad I was finally able to find a use for the undamaged part of the book. The watercolor pad is bound together using leather cord and each page is scored for easy tearing.
When I gave the travel illustration kit to Annie, she said she would probably use the empty jar to collect water from a nearby creek to use for her watercolor paintings in the field; that's the dream!
