Why is CAS not so easy?
So maybe CAS isn't CAS?

Birthday, Love, Copics!

Wee bit of snow gave me a couple days at home.
Totally enjoyed the long week-end!

And now, my new Copic storage!

I have this neat storage unit my DD gave me when we
reorganized my 'craft' (ie. crap) room...
And I stored my markers in a couple of letter holders,
never could find the markers I needed quickly...
Then I bought a big (4'x8') light diffuser grid at Lowes
and my DH cut it up to fit in my square storage cube
(He cut 3 so I could stack them for more stability)...
And this is the end result...

And this is a bird's eye view...

I have sketch copics and they fit in the tiny squares at an angle. I don't know if the other styles of copic markers would work or not. I went ahead and put my primsa markers in it too. Looks like I have room to grow. My daughter took one glance at it and said "You have room for 144 copic markers!"
I do need to admit though that this is not my original idea.
 I found it on Pinterest!

Whew! I think I'm done now. Haven't posted for a couple of weeks...guess I had more to say than I thought I would. Back to work tomorrow, 2 days with kids and then Professional Development day on Friday, Monday is a holiday and I have a Dr. ap'pt the next Friday. I think I'm getting spoiled!
