Today I have another Copic storage share from Lisa Gobea. I don't know about you, but I really enjoy checking out all the different ways people keep their markers handy and organized.
Here's what Lisa had to say in her own words:
Unfortunately the shelving units that I use to hold my Sketches in are no longer being made, The people from Quickutz came out with them to store the little dies inside pull out boxes that could be purchased separately. I'm sure you all remember them. The units ran about $20 each. It took me about two months to finally get two units. I had ordered them from three different web stores (including Overstock.com) only to be told a week later that they were out of stock. If memory serves me right I ended up getting both of these off of Ebay. They are somewhat heavy and I will admit that I overpaid on the shipping because I wanted them soooooo much. :O) You all know what I am talking about. lol.. Admit it.
I love that I can separate the different color families and still have more room left over for when I finally have my collection completed. The drawers on the bottom come in handy for storing my airbrush system and any extra nibs and whatnot. Overall I am quite satisfied with this set up.
When I first started to collect Copic markers I used little wooden boxes in one of my scrapbooking tool totes. It worked great, but then I ran out of room. I now use the wooden boxes to store the Various refills in. They are stored in my three drawer rolling card that I purchased at Lowe's a very long time ago. It sits right next to my desk so that it is in easy reach. lol... Are you bored yet?
When I first ran across the big Copic Bag on Oozak.com I of course had to order it. I don't usually go anywhere to color, but sometimes I do like to take my Copics to bed so that I can relax.
When I first got my bag I didn't really like the mesh bags that it came with, so I have been trying to come up with the perfect solution. Well, last week I was walking around our Dollar Store when I ran across these cardboard pencil holders. Needless to say for a $1 each I grabbed about ten of them and came home to make it work for me. I did have to cut some of them in half and then take them back up, but I am so so pleased with how they came out. The tote fits them all perfectly and my Copic OCD is happy as I can still keep them in their color families so that I can find the color that I want when I need it.
Thanks so much for sharing Lisa! :)
