New Copic Storage

Hey everyone!  I took a week off from my craft room and it felt so good to get back in there and create yesterday.  We lost my Mother-in-law last Saturday.  She has been suffering from Alzheimer's for some time.  I just couldn't bring myself to leave my husband's side last week to sit in my craft room.  Let me tell you though, it felt so good to get in and color yesterday.  That and play with ink and paper, and adhesive, and glitter, and glue!!  Yup was just what I needed.  OK, both those cards are for tomorrows DT postings. Just a teaser!  I wanted to pop in and show you the new storage that my husband put together for me.  Right now it is too deep, but I have some jars of buttons, and other things behind the markers.  I am going to have him cut me some blocks to put in the back that I can paint or something, we will see!
This storage makes it look like I don't have that many Copic colors!!  I love that I can get my hands in there to find the correct one!  That ink pad holder up top is from a garage sale.  I think it was a cassette holder. Not sure!!
My husband says it looks like a store in here. I tend to agree!!!  My friends also think so!!  
So the storage unit is just one of those put together units, we found it at Bi-Mart.  Don't you just love that metal daisy?  Just hung that recently and haven't filled it completely.  But I love to put my cards that I receive on it so I can look at it for inspiration.  This was right after I hung it so there are quite a few more!
Thanks for stopping by, tomorrow I will have 2 posts for you, I hope you will stop back by!!

My thoughts are with you and your family, Brenda, at this difficult time. I'm glad things are getting back to normal - life DOES go on. Love your new Copic storage, I'm just at the point of outgrowing mine (yay, nice problem to have) and think I might sell my (big) paint stand to give me room for another (my husband would say yet another) shelving unit. I took over the whole games room a few years ago after outgrowing the backroom and STILL fill every nook and cranny!! It's a craft thing, lol. Dee

Brenda, I am so sorry about your dh's and your loss. It is so hard when a loved one has alzheimer's, but it is even harder when you loose them. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Sending you big hugs.

You lucky girl to have your hubby build you that fabulous storage cubby. I wanna come and play at your place...you have so much more to play with lol.
