More Organizing

 Hello and Welcome...and a wonderful Memorial Day to you!
Although I am not sure that's I how I should say it since
this weekend is in Memory of the Men and Women 
that gave their lives for all of us in United States 
to continue to live life as we know it.
Even though we may have some crazy times here in the U.S.,
I wouldn't trade living here for anywhere else in the world.
I am proud to be American and am grateful and feel blessed 
for all that I have in my life and owe it all to those Men and Women 
that gave us all their most precious gift.
Thank you!

I had the pleasure of having a long weekend off of work and was able to not only create, but organize!
Yes, for some reason, it makes me happy to organize...
I know, I'm crazy, but that's ok!  LOL!!!

I made a marker organizer a few months back with my grape drink canisters.
And although I loved that organizer, 
my collection grew and wanted them all in one place.
I also wanted to have it so that I could just use my watercolor markers,
or just use my alcohol markers since I use various desks to create on.

So I kept my alcohol markers in the canisters 
and made a separate part for my watercolor markers.

 On top of where my alcohol markers are,
I am able to keep my watercolor paints, and if my collection grows,
there is enough room for another layer of canisters.

 I then made a whole box out of foam board that fits both organizers...
all of my markers and watercolor paints, on my back desk.

 I then wanted to fix up the organizer I made for my pencils.
I had extra foam board and decided to make it a bit bigger 
so I can disperse my pencils more than they were.
I added chalkboard paper I had in my stash for the longest time
and was able to write on each side what I have.

 That was just an added bonus...
but I kept the toilet tissue rolls inside to separate my colors
and was actually able to add another roll to each row.

 In the middle I have my stumps, gamsol, sharpener, twinkling H2Os,
brushes and other various items that I use with my pencils.
Now I just pick the box up off my back desk and can move it 
around to wherever I am working.

 It totally works for me and I am loving it so far.

It's great to see everyone's different ways of organizing...
I was looking at store bought organizers, 
but they were either too pricey (would rather spend that on supplies),
or too stationary...and as I have stated, I need to have the portability.

Thanks so much for visiting and 
I hope you enjoy your weekend as much as I have!
