Acrylic organization




On Saturday I made a fuss about not having my clothesline and reminded Andrew that he promised to put one up since he took out my old one. So Andrew’s buddy’s mom (did ya follow that) had one she put up last year and took down because she didn’t like it. It was the exact kind I wanted and it was mine for FREE if Andrew would go pick it up!

Andrew went to get the poles and I volunteered to pick up clothesline. Of course, there was a method to my kindness. I could have run down the street to one of the dollar stores and just picked up the clothes line, or run up the street to the other dollar store that is in the same plaza as Pat Catans. . . . Now, honestly, where would you go? Besides, I had time to kill while he went to get the poles and I was avoiding hole digging and pouring concrete!

So, when I get to the dollar store plaza parking lot it is packed – way more cars than are normally ever there. Turns out Easter Seal’s was holding a garage sale. . . . Well, now what girl could resist? Not me.

I browsed and didn’t see much I wanted or needed, when suddenly I saw this acrylic jewelry display case that was mounted on a turnstile, so it would spin. Hmmm. . . . I looked it over, played with it, checked it out and decided that my house would be the best home for it.

So, I bought it. It was $10.00. SCORE.

I cleaned it up and then filled it up with all my goodies that I always want right at hand.

One side has all my markers, organized by type – Copics, SU Markers, Bics, and Prisma.
One side has all my different ink pads, one side has re-inkers and stickles and one side has all my SU Spots organized is a quasi ROY G BIV style. It sits on the corner of my craft table and so far, I have to tell ya, I’m LOVIN’ IT!


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
