Bit of old stuff...

Hello bloggers,

here's me trtying to be a better blogger and post something more often!
Today I thought I'd share my Copic storage caddy that I made myself from foam board. It's not superneat but it works very well for me.
Here is a side view, where you can see that I angled the whole thing a bit so all the colours are easily visible.


I am quite proud of this solution as I really wanted one of those cute cubicle things that you sometimes see in american crafters homes. But they were too expensive when you count in p&p and this cost me about £4 and took about an hour to do.

On to something I did in August for my new niece Helena. She is such a sweet baby and I wanted to make her something special, so I tried my hands at sewing a quilt... a small one as my sewing isn't that great.




As you can see, it's not perfect, but it's cute enough and I was happy with the outcome! The back is in the same stripy material as the surround btw.

Think your storage idea looks fab. Only recently I saw a blog where someone had made a stamp pad holder out of foam board. Looks a bit challenging to me though.
