A Reorganized Desk and Some ATCs

Wednesday?  Wednesday!  Oh my!  Already!  AKA Hump Day!  Yep.  It's that day you have the opportunity to view desks all over the globe (at least of those willing to share).  This fun blog hop has been put together by Julia at the Stamping Ground.   My desk pictures were taken yesterday after I reorganized my area after purchasing a Copic marker shelf from our LSS (local scrapbook store) which is closing May 31.  I've tried different ways to storing them and this is by far the best.  I took a before and after pics and I'm sure you'll much prefer the after.  And yes, my desk was calling me to play.

Right above my red Cricut is the old method of storing my Copics.  It was a PIA.   I'll repurpose that large container for something else.

Isn't this better!!!!  Unfortunately I had onions to chop and freeze yesterday so no playing.  But today!!
I also got in my April ATC swap.  There was 9 but when I took the photo 1 was very much stuck to the back of another and I didn't discover that until I was putting them in their folder.

Such fun inspiration!  Funny as I mailed my May swap a week before I got these back.  Some of the gals are not very good at getting theirs mailed out to the hostess before the deadline.  Bummer..

I hope you enjoyed my desk. Now that you've reached the end please head over to the Stamping Ground and continue on.

Hello Carol. Well done on your new storage - hope you find a great use for your old display unit. The ATCs are great - well done again. Always good to finish a project.
Take care. God bless.

Hi Carol, great purchase for the storage. Getting marker storage right is a real pain, I agree there. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #11 xx

Well done you on that new storage. It does look much better, and the old storage looks like it is a large box on its side, so I'm sure you will find a use for that.
I love those ATCs.
Happy WOYWW,

Yep, I like your new storage too, you'll be able to see all your stash so clearly from now on! Those ATCs are fun too, though it must be annoying when folk don't mail when they ought to...

great cards. I use my container like that for copics when I'm going to a crop, but I agree it's a PIA! LOl
Have a great day.
