Well, I've tidied it - I was so ashamed after last week's midden shot. And I would just like to thank all those of you who offered to take all my new goodies away lol
Ok here's a piccie of my desk, and then I'll get onto explaining a few things that were asked about last week...
A few of you asked or commented about my huge silver box of promarkers, well here's a few shots to show you. It is actually a DJ's CD box or some call it a CD Flight Case. This is the one I have. It comes complete with a few hundred suspension pockets designed to hold CD's. BUT I use it to hold and transport my promarkers. I've found it very handy for taking to demonstrations and classes.
I printed off the colour chart from here, onto the cardstock that I normally use my promarkers on (this way I get a true colour representation). I coloured sticky dots with each of the pens and stuck these dots onto the broad cap end so that I can easily see the colour.
I have arranged the promarkers as per the colour chart - I could easily fit the promarkers into a smaller box but I'm a bit on the pedantic side and wanted them set out the same as the colour chart. So there is a maximum of 5 promarkers in each pocket.
There is plenty of space in the lid, so behind the colour chart (which I laminated so it doesn't get grubby) I store a pack of card and some laminated colouring examples for taking to classes and demos. **Edited to add** Promarkers DO NOT need to be stored horizontally, they are quite happy to be stored vertically like I have done. HOWEVER Aquamarkers DO need to be stored horizontally, just in case you don't believe me, or don't want to take my word for it - check out what Paul has to say on the Letraset blog here.
Next up was the big boxes of glitter. Well actually those are 2 wee Really Useful Boxes that I picked up in Hobbycraft, and I emptied 2 bottles of Glamour Dust into the top one - the reasoning for this is, I will use wee scoops (this was part of a mini set that came out of our xmas crackers) and hold the item being glittered over the box - so in theory less chance of making a mess. The other box holds clear embossing powder.
So that's me for this week, sorry I only made it round a fraction of the WOYWWers last week - will try to do better this week.
