New Copic Storage!

Here are the pictures as promised!

This is the box itself. I got it at Tuesday Morning. It is material over a very hard casing.  I assume it is a very very strong chipboard type of material.  It zips shut and as you can see has 2 zipper pulls.  There is also a business card pocket on the front (very hard to see in this pic).  The card that was in there just says "storage"  and underneath that says "Raymond Waites". Hopefully if you are interested in the case you can google it with that info.

This is a view of the side.  Both sides have a very nice fabric handle.  I think you can see it in this photo.

Here is what it looks like inside!  It holds more than the amount of Copics that are cuurently available although right now the exact number eludes me.

I was trying to get a good shot of the inside of the case.  What I have done is taken plastic canvas (I got mine at Hobby Lobby) and I used embroiderey floss to sew the four pieces together to make a square that fit perfectly into the box.  I then attached the cross pieces using floss as well. I did this to both ends of the cross pieces. For the pieces that go from front to back of the box I cut up into the canvas on both pieces so that would slide together.  These steps were not done in that order and I'm not gonna lie, this is something that I would NEVER take on again!!!!  If I get people interested I would be happy to take my markers out to show better pics of the insert.  Feel free to leave a comment or question and I will answer as soon as I can. Keep it colorful!!!

Ok I know! Where in the world have I been right?  We have had major computer issues and I decided to stop posting until I had my very own laptop. Well that happened for me last night!!! Why did it take so long? Well so much has been happening in my personal life that it was very much put on the back burner.  We bought a house this past December (a real fixer upper) and that is exactly what we have been doing since the beginning of the year.  Still not totally complete, the contractor has just a few things left to do in the kitchen.

So enough about houses!! Let's talk copic!!  Still teaching classes at Cord and now have a group of women that will be seeing me for private monthly classes!! I have also replaced Roxanne.  Roxanne was my previous copic case that I created (look back to my previous post).  I just had to name her and that's what I came up with.  I will put pictures of my NEW copic case on here ASAP.  I also would like to start doing some youtube videos but I have no idea how to do it yet.  I am so computer illiterate!!!  So that is all for tonight.  Be back soon!!!  Keep it colorful!!!
