About Me

Midway, NC, United States
I retired from Bali Bras, Sara Lee Intimates. Married in '76. I love meeting new people so hope you to hear from you. Drop me a line. I've been doing crafts of all kinds since I was a kid. I loved making things and especially things that are recycled. I had never stamped until 2001 when I went to a stamp class while on vacation. We went to a local store to buy the stamps we had used. OUCH. When we got home I saw a Stampin Up catalog and realized how much money I could save with their stamps and best part as they are sets that go together which makes for easy card making. After doing some thinking I decided I should sign up as a demo and see what happens. I didn't know the first thing about stamping and still learning. Retired from Sara Lee Intimates in '01. I was in sales after many years, since age 18, as an office person, secretary, office assistant, etc. I teach Stamp Classes in my stamp room and would love to meet you.

Marker Storage

Pin It

Now what do you think Crystal Light and Veggies have in common. Well now the container of course. Check out my new marker storage. I've been using Crystal Light containers for so many things over the years that I have a stash as I'd hate to run out.

I used Kiwi Kiss designer paper and round scallop punch. Sorry can't remember name of paper with blues and greens.

Recently I had reason to add some markers to my stash due to being dry on one end or another. Well of course having the extra markers meant that I could no longer use my marker container so it's now in storage as well. Have to save it in case I want to take my markers on a crop or something.

Well thanks to my neighbor, Freda, I acquired the needed vegggie cans and she was sweet enough to even wash them out for me. Well here is what I made and it's on a rubbermaid turntable and viola, I have some cute storage. The veggie cans are glued together with hot glue as they didn't touch enough for glue dots or sticky strip.

Now put on your thinking cap and share your ideas.

Please note that I can remove my crystal light containers if someone needs blues at the other end of the table.

I'm very pleased.

My Blog

May, 2009 when I started the blog and it's still a learning experience even in 2017.

If you are ever looking for a retired stamp set, ask me, I might have it and let it go.

As a follower you'll get emails when I post things which I tend to do in batches, once or twice a month once I get back on schedule.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all comments.
