Prismacolors

I never made it to Michaels last week to look for Cuttlebug Folders… Keri suggested that I purchase the Folders from All that Scraps, they have super quick shipping and carry all of the Cuttlebug Folders.

I did go to Hobby Lobby and JoAnn’s. Hobby Lobby had all Spare Parts embellishments on sale 50% off, I picked up quite a few of those. At JoAnn’s I picked up a Fiskars Caddy to hold my Prismacolor Pencils (thanks Emily).

Last Mother’s Day, Riley and Austin bought me the 120 set of Prismacolor Pencils that come in a tin with trays. Those trays were such a hassle for me… I found it annoying to keep moving the tray’s around until I found the color I wanted. I picked up this canvas container at Sam’s Club just before Christmas (it was filled with Godiva yummies) and I thought it would be perfect. Plus, the canvas with brown matched my other storage containers in my stamp area. As it tuned out, it was more of a pain to find the pencil I wanted, at least when the pencils were in the trays I had them divided by color… here they were all clumped together. I definitely needed a more convenient way to store them.

I was reading one of Emily’s entries on her Bloggabella about the Fiskars Caddy that she picked up at JoAnn’s, I went to JoAnn’s that afternoon and bought one! I love it! I had a hard time deciding on what color I should get. The caddy comes in Light Green (the one Emily bought), Pale Yellow, a really pretty Powder Blue & the Rose that I purchased; I may go back and pick up one more…and it’s only $9.99.

  2. Hey now that is neat! I have mine sorted like that but I just took old veggie cans and covered them in paper... LOL I am too cheap to spend ten bucks to hold my pencils! And also this way I can have the cans all the way to the back of my table in a thin row...I like lots of room on my table!
