Copic Certification and Storage

I am SO EXCITED to be attend a Copic Certification Class tomorrow with Marianne Walker herself!  I can hardly wait!  I signed up as soon as applications went out WAY BACK in the middle of August and have been wait not so patiently for tomorrow to arrive!

I have been slowly growing my collection of markers and needed a better way to store them.  I wanted to be able to group them not only by color families but also by certain color combos that I love.  I also wanted to be able to take them with me when I work so I needed something functional yet portable.  After trying many different options I asked my hubby to custom make me a storage case.  He used scrap lumber so it isn't the exact proportions that I was hoping for but I LOVE IT!  It is really working out quite nicely.  It is a little heavy but that is good for me - harder to accidentally knock it onto the floor!  I got the idea for this storage solution from Theresa Momber's blog Crafting the Web. Thank you Theresa it is PERFECT!

We painted it a neutral light brown color (my husband says the color reminds him of a Wendy's Frosty).  Then I broke out my Gypsy and my Vinyl and decorated it up.  I didn't have all the colors of vinyl to do exactly what I wanted but the great thing about vinyl is that I can redo it at any time - so this is perfect for now.

This first picture is of the storage case open and showing the top where I labeled it with my name.



This next picture shows how I decorated the back of the case.





This final picture show 1 side (both sides are decorated the same) and how the front closes for transporting.
