Pen Storage & blog Hop Reminder

First of all this morning I would like to remind you that it's a blog hop at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, celebrating 6 years on our challenge blog.  For this Blog-Hop Challenge the theme is 'Brrrr........It's Cold Outside'
With great prizes to win and even candy from me too.  You can find it here, but don't forget to read the rules.

My husband has had to re-do my pen storage as my collection has grown.  He has used overflow pipe, cutting the pipes to size then gluing them together.

It took him quite a while, the pipes are cut a bit shorter then the length of the pen so that you can get your fingers in to pull the pen out.  See he thought of everything bless him!!!

So he carefully calculated how many pipes were needed to actually house the full range of Spectrum Noirs and all the Promarkers I have collected so far.  I won't be purchasing anymore Promarkers because I have to admit the Spectrum Noirs are better at blending than the Promarkers.

As you can see I still have a few Spectrum Noirs to go but hoping Christmas will take care of that.  And I would really love the Crafter's Companion tutorial DVD's so I can improve my colouring.

So a big thank you to my hubby for coming up with this, it's brilliant and I love it, now please can I have the rest of the pens LOL!

Thanks for popping by my blog,
Happy crafting
