Even though I am not feeling tip top this weekend I still wanted to get this post scheduled for Tuesday so that I could finally answer the question that a lot of you have been asking me lately. lol.. "How do I store my Copics?" I know that right next to coloring with my pens and watching YouTube videos on how others use their Copics is seeing how everyone stores them. Yes, I love to see how everyone stores their Copics, and AmyY was nice enough to ask if I would share mine with her to put on the Color Me Copic blog. You can see how Amy and a few other ladies store theirs as well. (Thanks Amy, as you can see I had a great time taking my pictures. heehee...)
So let's get to it. Unfortunately 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 and the metal boxes with name plaits ran about $10 for three and came in pink, brownish tan or white. It took me about two mouths 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 they were available they came in both white and black. Black seemed to be easier to get, but I really wanted it to be white to go with my carousel from Michael's that my wonderful Sister-in-law & Brother brought to Moses Lake for me on one of their visits.
