Since I mentioned on my last post about organizing my markers, several people have asked to see a picture. I am a semi-organized person most of the time, but I have a hard time keeping my craft supplies organized. I love these containers, they have been keeping my Copic and Prisma markers organized for some time. The problem was that my Prismacolor pencils were organized in another place. And the watercolor pencils in another. And the Gelly Roll pens in yet another. There was the problem, each coloring medium had it's own organizational area which was not working for me. I combined them all into one system, with the exception of the watercolor pencils and watercolor crayons. Both of those items sit on top of these cubes so everything is now together in one place. I also have a portable file box that these cubes will slide into when I go somewhere. I was going to leave them in the file box on my desk but it is deeper than the cubes alone and it took up just a little too much room. So what do you think? Do you think I might regret mixing all my coloring mediums? I often mix them on a project so I thought it would work well for me.

Sunny Hello Card and marker storage
Don't adjust the color on your computer, however you might need some sunglasses! I made this card with a specific friend in mind that is in need of some bright cheeriness in her mailbox. Like me, she also enjoys the color yellow. This is exactly the type of card that she will love. I kind of think this look like an orange! I made the background by stamping the flower onto white card stock and then using UTEE embossing powder. Then, using a brayer and CTMH Sunflower ink I went over the entire piece of card stock. I stamped the large flower and then colored it with Prismacolor pencils and used a clear acrylic bauble in the center. The flowers on this card are from the TAC set Petal Factory. The "hello" sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps. This is the same type of card we will be making for craft night on Friday at my church, but with a different color scheme.
