Copic Marker Storage

I have been using the Copic storage bag for quite some time. My only complaint is that I hate how all the markers fall together and I can never find the number I am looking for!! Someone shared in one of the Facebook groups about this fantastic storage container!! So of course I had to get one!!! You can find your own here -- Yuki's Girls Blog

Here's mine with all my Copics!! I left open spaces so I can fill them in if I add the markers I am missing. :-)

Here's the picture from Yuki's Girls Blog of it with the cover ---

I love the fact that it can be used standing up!!

Just had to share my excitement!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Blessings and Hugs!!

I am still trying to figure out time to work on Finally Home Crafts projects. You can find my current items for sale at The Stamping Boutique in the Finally Home Crafts section.  There is also a Finally Home Crafts page on Facebook.  I have several new items in the works and hope to post them soon!!

Sunday, February 22, 2015


I am really excited to share that I have decided to open my own crafting business. I named it "Finally Home Crafts' because I am finally able to stay home to take care of my kids. It took me several years and lots of gentle (OK not so gentle nudging) to make the plunge and give up my teaching job. No regrets but it was definitely a very scary step both financially and emotionally!!!

Anyhow back to my announcement....Finally Home Crafts can be found here on Facebook. I offer customized and themed vinyl items such as plates, wine glasses, and acrylic tumblers. I am also making paper products - home decor, gift items, cards, etc...

I found this jar at Target and just knew it was calling out for vinyl. I added the chevron on top and the saying around it. The full saying is "When all else fails eat chocolate."

If you are interested you can find my projects on my Facebook page and local craft fairs. I will be attending a craft fair Saturday March 14 from 1-7pm at the Joyce Hanks Community Center in Sheffield Lake, Ohio. 

As always thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!!!
