I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

No card but some storage ideas!

Sorry there are no new cards but all cards I have made have been DT cards so you will see them in the coming weeks.

I thought I would show you a couple of ideas for storage.

The first I saw on someone else's blog (sorry can't remember who - was ages ago) for storing stickles glues. I bought some round magnets from Ebay and glued onto bottom of the bottle using pinflair glue. When dried it takes the weight of the bottle to suspend upside down.

My hubby then screwed a cheap 99p baking tray to underside of my shelf and...

voila - stickles glue hanging and with the glue always ready to stick. I have also done the same thing with my Cosmo glue so no air bubbles!

This next idea was my Hubby's! We were looking for storage for all my promarkers after buying the new 56 and with the old 92 they had outgrown the pots I used. Whilst "killing time" in Asda he spotted this cleaning trug. It is suppose to house cleaning supplies with one large section and two smaller sections, but after my hubby glued in two pieces of wood to separate the larger section into 3 it is perfect for my pens! I can now store them on top of a drawer unit and with the nifty handle it's easy to lift onto my desk. The bonus is it only cost £2.00!!!

What great ideas. I love the cleaning tray idea think I might do one for myself. I wonder if Asda will wonder why so many cleaning trays are being bought!?

Love your storage ideas - especially for the stickles. That's just genius. I just have mine wedged into a corner of my carft box so that they will stay upside down and ready to use.
