More Storage - for my great bargain!

Hi everyone.  Thought I would share a mega bargain, I got on Tuesday, well at least I think it's a bargain.

But, before I do!!  Look over there to the right, go on!  See, I have a blog button, yeah!!  Lissa Marie, of So Many Crafts, So Little Time,  made it for me when I won a blog candy on her blog.  I gave  her free rein to create what she wanted with my blog in mind.  So pleased with it, what do you think?  Thanks Lissa :-)

Onto my bargain.

In the local adds here, I just happened to have a quick look, there was a lady selling up some stamping inks. The ink pads that I have tend to be the little round ones from Michaels, with a couple of Memento, Tim Holtz and thats about it.

So, anyways, this lady sold me 22 CTMH stamp pads (practically brand new) with 17 of the CTMH ink markers (not the alcohol ones), 10 of which matched the stamp pads.  Also, 6 Stampin Up Stamp pads and two blender pens - all for $60!  For me this was fabulous.

So of course, yesterday, I had to make some storage for my new stuff :-)

Using the same method I used for my Spectrum Noir Pens here, I used two of the Michaels Photo boxes and made this.  Each shelf is 4" deep by 7.5" wide and they are spaced approx 1.5" (give or take) apart.  At some stage I might connect the boxes completely and decorate them, to make it one complete unit.

The one on the left, the markers are the ones that match the ink pads. And then I slotted in my Memento Tuxedo Black.

The one on the right, holds the spare markers and also my two Tim Holtz Ditress Inks on the bottom.

There you have it - I am one happy bunny and now that I am slowly getting a little more organised I will hopefully have something to share with you again soon :-)

Have a great rest of the week.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
