I know crafters always love storage ideas so I thought I'd share Mum's ProMarker stand. I thought it was rather good and I wish I had space on my desk for one.
If you think I'm organised, I have nothing on Mum! You probably think that the pens were arranged for the photo but they were already like that. I was so tempted to twiddle them all around!
You may have spotted a photo of someone familiar. Maya was 7 days old in that photo and it was the first time we met her.
She bought it on eBay and it reminds me of a test tube stand. Each one holds 60 pens and Mum has two of them joined together.
Dad has added an extension on the side for her scissors and rulers.
Whilst I was at it I thought I'd photograph the rest of the room. Sorry about the quality of them but they were taken on my phone and looked OK on the small screen.
These shelves are on one wall and I think she has nearly as much stash as I do. She has a lot of colours in Adirondack ink pads that I don't, so I got out one of her Clarity stamps and stamped them all out for reference. I was almost afraid to use it though as her stamps and mounts are immaculate, not covered in ink like mine. Anyway, I now have a list of the colours that I "need".
Mum loves colouring in so she has lots of things to do that with.
There are a few more shelves on the other side of the room........
.........and a lovely long work surface between them. If that was mine it would have stuff all over it! Dad is always telling me that I need more space to work in as I'm lucky if my cutting mat is clear.
What a fun place to stay!
