Go here for more global work desks peeks!! http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/
Last week I had a mystery and ALMO was the closest to solving it with the answer of Spectrum marker Storage! Almo if you send me you r contact info I have a nice little present for you!!
As you remember I had a flood three weeks ago, Since I lost some crafty supplies in that flood I was able to make a claim along with that and some other "loss" dollars , a really good sale at AC Moore, free shipping at Amazon and an awesome husband, I was able to purchase the complete set of Spectrum Noir Markers, all 168 of them. And a storage system!
This is also on the heal of another post of me blah, blah blahing about not having them and the expense of them. I did thankfully say that if I had the opportunity (aka mula, mula) I wouldn't mind getting a set. Well thanks to the flood I did have the $$, and I did get them and all I can say is it was love at first color. And since you just can't have this giant set of pens rolling around the desk top and they really need to be in some kind of order, Steve went on the web to find a storage system to house this in. There is a nice one made for about 100.00 which houses each pen separately, but Steve didn't like the idea of that kind of money being spent on plastic. So he found these great "cubbies" from Studio 3 Solutions. Two cubbies will hold all the pens, I ordered four.
Great safe packaging, the order shipped and I received within 5 days.
These cubbies are beautifully made out of wood and the self has a slight slant down to keeps things in place. They look and feel like very quality items!
It took me about an hour to order the pens and put them in,
I emptied my other desk top containers and put those things in the other two cubbies
I have lots more room now on my desk and an efficient storage for my coloring tools
Now I have to learn how to use them!! I've been watching tutorials in between a trip to NY, A spaghetti supper, a day in the park with our NY cousin, getting all that laundry done with the new washing machine ( old one was trashed from the flood) and a great day yesterday in CT with my Mom.
One thing So far that I know that I love, is the pastels and they way the alcohol markers blend, this really does give me the beautiful soft colors of the pastels and flexibility of the water colors and pencils.
I wish I had a brilliant example of my budding illustrator's art, but I don't, I've been too busy to use my new toys!! That would be today, I need to crank out a lot of cards for a big order! So stay tuned and thanks for stopping by!
