Craft Room and DT Announcement

We are winding down with the Copics for Cardmakers class I am taking from Online Card Classes.  Part of Lesson 12  has to do with marker maintenance and storage.  I have revised my storage system about 4 times to accommodate my growing collection of markers.  I was particularly proud of myself last spring after a trip to Ikea.  I found a media shelf unit and adapted it for my newest (and last) Copic storage.  I improvised the dividers using some left over square tiles from Home Depot and cutting some drawer dividers from Michaels shelves.  It works so well for me because I needed something horizontal for my marker storage.  A side benefit was the unit provided me with more storage on top and it's wide enough for me to store other things to fill in the shelf!!
Another smaller Ikea shelf sits on top of my marker storage.
It holds 6x6 pads, my collection of sentiment stamps, refills and lots of misc. junk.
The rest of my L-shaped work desk.
It's rarely this clean!!

A broader view of the storage and part of my work space.
The 9 drawers underneath are where I store my scrap paper.
They are older wooden drawers from Ikea too!  

And now onto the DT announcement. . .
You may have noticed the little owl on the left side of my blog.  Lil' Patch of Crafty Friends is a  NEW challenge blog that will be starting in January and I am on the DT.  Woot-woot!  I am just thrilled to be part of this new team and to help Amy and Denise start their adventure.   The sponsors are fabulous!  There are many companies that are new to me, which is fun - and for you there is more than one winner for each challenge!!  "Follow" the Challenge Blog, and the other DT members' blogs.  I hope to see you playing along with us in the new year.
