They say it's your Birthday!

Hello and Welcome!

So my birthday was a couple of weeks ago...
we won't mention how old! LOL!!!

But for my birthday, 
my hubster was so sweet and got me a bunch of crafty items!
He knows me so well!!!

Here are some of the items I got...

All of the six-packs of Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers!!!

Some of the stamps I got...

Even an Adult Coloring book!!!

So, when I received all of the markers,
I knew I needed somewhere to put them in arms reach so I would use them.

After a bit of thinking...
I remembered all of these grape drink canisters that I have been keeping,
knowing I would use them for something...someday.
Well, here's the day!!!

I removed all of the labels, which was easy,
just cut and off they came!

I then decided to put them five across,
and started up the hot-glue gun!

Then added another row, and another...and so on.

Until I had thirty canisters put together.

I then took foam board to enclose the canisters.

Hubster actually came up with the shelf on top for papers or whatever I wanted.

I decorated it and placed all of my markers inside.
I added my limited amount of copics, prismacolors and sharpies.

So now it is on my back desk right next to my pencil storage 
I made a while back with toilet/paper towel rolls.
Here's the link to that blog post. - Pencil Storage

Now I have a home for all of my coloring...well, most of my coloring.

I do love making the storage myself since I can never find exactly what I want.
Or if I do, it is was too expensive, or it's not portable.

I would love for you to let me know what storage you have made.
Please comment below!

I hope you enjoyed these creations...
