This was my second diamond painting ever (the first being a small $10 cheapie just to see if I liked it), my first from DAC, and my first experience with square diamonds. Everything about this kit turned me into a diamond painting addict. The art work, the rendering, the quality, I loved it all! It's a partial drill, which was a great place for a newbie to start. It was not overwhelming. I could just enjoy the process without worrying about straight borders, etc. And enjoy it I did! I can't wait to get to the others I've purchased!
