Gettin' Organized



I love to organize. I love for things to have their place and I love having containers to help sort stuff out. I've been slowly getting some Copics markers and I had them in that little plastic bin on the right side of the photo, but I finally outgrew it. Ross actually got online one day, did a little research and came up with several container options for me to choose from. He likes things organized too :) I decided on this one and it's perfect. It's called the Magpie Nesting Storage System. We ordered it off of Amazon. I love that I can sort out all of the color groups and I have lots of room to grow. Plus the little drawer at the bottom is pretty big. I'm storing some additional markers and gel pens in there now. Do you see any colors that I'm missing that you use often?? I really need some more red and green suggestions.

Had to get my sheet before I could comment. Love the holder! I have mine in the case, but mine are also the cheaper markers, so the ends don't show the numbers.
Okay, went to see what I used often with greens. I have a lot of them, but I seem to use BG93, G99, G21 often. I saw you had RV34, R85 is a deeper shade that works well with that color. They're close together in shade. Love them both. I don't use reds often, but two that I do have that look like good solid reds are R27, R29.

Awesome, this is great! Mine are upright in a basket, I tend to color in different places, so I need something more mobile. :)

Hey Kim! This is fabulous, I need to get my hands on one!

Some good reds that I use are R29 Lipstick red, (my go to red), R37 Carmine and R35 Coral, ooh, R39, Garnet is beautiful too.

It's tough to make out all the numbers for the greens, but the ones I like to use are YG95 Pale Olive, YG03 Yellow Green, YG23 New Leaf, YG67 Moss, G82 Spring Dim Green is pretty and soft too.

I know you have lots of neutrals, but a couple of my basics are E53 Raw Silk and I see you have E33 Sand, but I also use E34 Orienatale a lot. Another good yellow is Y02 Canary Yellow, but Buttercup is my fave and you got it! :D Do you have RV02 Sugared Almond Pink? That's a pretty one too, RV10 Pale Pink is also pretty. Ok, I could go on, cuz they're all grea!!
