Copic storage on the go...

Hi again.
    Blogger would not let me put all of this into one post, so here I am once again to share more of my storage.  When I first ran across the big Copic Bag on 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. :O)  
     Thanks for putting up with all my rambling.  I hope that yo all had a great Monday. I will talk at you next time.
Hugs, Lisa G

As you can see I still have plenty of room for more markers, and my color shart/book fits right on top when I pack up to go.

Nice and orderly!  :O)
Kind of sloppy for me.

Hey Lisa,

I love this! I feel exactly the same about those mesh baskets, they just dont work! I am def going to be on the lookout for some different containers to put in there. Thanks for the idea! Oh and thanks so much for the blog award, I have been so busy lately and not been on as much. It's so nice of you to think of me.

Anyway hope all is well at your place,
