I love Camilla's idea, and it got me thinking. I would have to travel to Edinburgh or Glasgow for our nearest IKEA, and lets face it, I'm not gonna travel all that distance and just come home with a DVD rack costing under a tenner am I??
So, I'm on a bit of a budget with it being close to the end of the month and the fact that we've forked out for a plasterer AND a new puppy this month, so this is what I came up with...
This unit stands approximately 34cm (roughly 13.5 inches) high, 20.5cm (8 inches) wide and 15cm (6 inches) deep so it takes up minimal space while still giving you quick and easy access to the pens. This is the thing that really put me off buying the Letraset wallets - the fact that I would have to buy umpteen of them, unzip them every time I wanted to use the pens etc etc.
This second pic gives you a better idea of the size, that's a 30cm/12" ruler next to it.
So this was how I spent part of Friday afternoon. And this is how I made it...
I bought 2 sets of stacking DVD/PS2/Wii/game storage trays from dvdstoragetrays shop on eBay plus I used 7 empty DVD cases - I used the ones without the DVD tray part (you know the bit inside the case that holds the DVD in place) that I purchase from Jetcase to store my unmounted stamps.
Anyway, I cut the spine from each of the DVD cases which gave me 14 shelves. So I assembled the storage trays, inserted my shelves and then got to work adding the coloured sticky dots to the ends of all 148 promarkers - ugh!!
The rest of Friday afternoon was spent at Tiger Tiger in Aberdeen, the reason being I was a finalist in a competition that one of the local radio stations, Original FM, was running for a long weekend in New York. Unfortunately I was knocked out in the 2nd last round, but hey-ho, it means I won't miss the kids parents nights, or Willow's consultant appt, or have to cancel my bodyshop party.
