This was my first diamond kit - well, not the first one I ordered, but the first one I did. And I loved it! It was a good size for a beginner, had a good combination of color blocking and confetti, and went really quickly. AS a complete novice, I ordered kits from other sources, as well, to see what the difference was, and I do have to say that from what I can tell the Diamond Art Club stuff is worth every extra penny. The canvas is far superior, the chart is clear and easy to read, and the design was awesome. It was a total win for me, which is a good thing since I have already ordered another 10 DAC kits.
