Good morning all. 
I hope that your week is starting out well.  I am of course getting ready to head to work and get the kiddies to school.  This week starts some of  their two weeks of testing in school.  I just know that is going to make for some grumpy kids along the way.  Wish us luck. lol... 
As you can see I have two obsessions lately.  My Cinch that Jerry and the kids got me for Christmas and the new Greeting Farm Stamp- Syren.  OMWord,  I just love paper piecing this girl.  I think it just gives her tail so much color and dimension.  So with that being said I want to share with you my NEW Copic color book.  I was waiting for some more of the black wires,  but the longer I look at my book the more the white has grown on me.  What do you think?  Should I replace the white with the black when it comes in?  So,  I had purchased the new Copic color book from when the new markers were coming out and I liked how it was set up, but  I stamp on Neenah paper.  I decided to take my book apart and print it on my Neenah paper so that my colors will be true for me.  I also wanted to have a way of keeping track on what Sketches I have and what Various refill I have as well.  As you can see I made a pocket on the front inside cover to keep my typed list of what I need. (I figure I can cross them off when I get them) Then, if you look closely on the color charts you will see a single dot next to the color.  This indicates to me that I do have a refill for that color.  I can not tell you how many times I have ordered only to reorder a pen or refill that I already have. Mind you it makes Madison happy as she ends up with the extra Copic.  lol...   I also made a back pocket that faces the opposite side to put blank paper in for my list of what I want to order next.  Unfortunately for some reason my picture did not want to load today.  Who knows?  lol... I do have to say that I am really loving how this came out. 
Ok guys, I hope you liked my little share today.  Hope I didn't make it too boring.  Have a super Monday,  and I will talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G

This is gorgeous Lisa! Love the papers you've used and the pockets you added to the front and back! Syren is gorgeous as well, the paper pieced tail looks amazing as does your coloring of the rest of her! :)
You are never boring, my friend! I always enjoy your posts and everyone loves seeing all the different ways to organize our supplies!
Hope you have a wonderful Monday, it's kind of gloomy here...smells like rain is coming.

Hi Lisa! What a terrific idea! This is so elegant, I actually thought you purchased that from Copic and just popped on Syren to make it your own!! Wow, u did a gr8 job! I have to do something like this too. I have to try to remember what markers I already have and what refills. I think I have a few doubles (1 Ciao & 1 Sketch). TFS and Happy Monday!! :)

Lisa this is a great idea! I have the oozak book but filled it in and it just sits on my desk. Yours is so much prettier and more practical. LOVE that paper and the way you pieced Syren. Absolutely tremendous!
