In my defense, during that time I have had Amelia at home for half term, several hospital appointments and for 4 days this week Amelia has been at home again due to the school closures and hazardous weather conditions! I am starting to feel a little housebound and if not careful, going a bit stir crazy! Just getting out the door for a short walk has been a bit of a challenge!
I needed to find something I could do that didn't need much concentration and that I could easily pick up and put down as Amelia is a constant source of distraction! SO, I decided to attack my Copic collection!
Now my Copic collection isn't huge and some are up to nine years old, when I purchased my first set. I have mainly Ciao markers but more recently I have treated myself to a few Sketch markers and I also have a handful of refills. I need a portable form of storage as colouring is one of the crafty activities I do tend to do sat down with the family whilst watching TV. So I need portable storage that is adaptable enough to cater for various shapes and sizes of markers.
Before I start working on that I decided to make up a new chart to show an updated list of exactly what I have, that way when I order more I don't end up with any duplicates which I did last time I treated myself! (That really hurt to think that I could have had more colours to my little collection! LOL)
Over the last few evenings I have made up a check list and very happily filled it in as I have gone through each of my colour ranges. It's very much still a work in progress and I am eagerly awaiting the delivery of another small order so I can colour in a few more boxes but unfortunately the bulk of the order is refills for colours I already have and it's not as satisfying as getting a "brand new colour" to my collection!
I will need to put the next stage of organisation on hold until Amelia is back at school so for now I will revert back to colouring a few of the images I have just sitting there waiting.
Take care out there.
