So, that means that my desk is out of bounds this week too :(
However, I have something else to show - Pro Marker storage! :
I know, like a spoilt brat in a sweetshop , I couldn't make my mind up which colours to have when I recently bought the Pro Markers on a very good deal from Cowling and Wilcox. Err, so I got the lot (and ate the receipt of course)! But, then storage was an issue as I'd heard mixed reports about storing them upright or horizontally and I got fed up of rootling through a large Really Useful Box and then, bingo! I spotted a prototype on a blog (details further down this posting). The storage is really well made, it can be wall mounted, and even has space for you to stick the Letreset colour chart on (print to A5 size). I find this mostly handy when replacing the markers as the coloured spots I put on the ends of the markers are more reliable in terms of actual colour, as you might expect. This storage is such a brilliant idea and I love it! As my desk is in sunshine - when we have any - I was concerned about the markers suffering from any drying out problems (err, plus I don't have a ton of room given the other
As my desk is curved it's just the perfect place to swivel to and pick out which markers I need. Brilliant I say!
This is the link to Sharon's blog here with the story of how the storage rack came about, full dimensions, better and more detailed photos, cost and her email address. This isn't advertising, just me sharing what is a really inspired piece of storage that has made my life MUCH easier when playing with PMs. I had to wait a couple of weeks as it was a first run of them but delivery was spot on and really well packaged.
So, if you haven't nipped out already and scuttled over to Sharon's to have a look see, then do make sure you hop over to Julia's here to find out what everyone else is up to today!
By the way, since the Blogger problems of last week, have you been able to spell check your postings OK? I'm not able to, so apologies in advance - or am I doing something stoopid here?!
No crafting planned for me today - catching up on chores here, in between nipping in and out to see what you're all up to. I'm doing some sewing alterations for my OH and could certainly do with Wipso nipping down to give a hand. Happy WOYWW everyone!
