WOYWW-Just as messy today!

A very small amount of the over 3000 stamps I have.

If there was a prize for the messiest craftroom, I think I might win that one. It is not better today either. You see, I am tidying! It does not look like it, but right now I am sorting out all my stamps. Since an old woman crashed into my car some weeks ago  and left me with a serious whiplash, I am not able to sit there for long, so it's going to take like forever to sort them out, but I have a big plan in my head on how its going to be, not relealing anything yet...

I just had to show you the rediculous solution I have for my Promarkers: Toiletpaper rolls stacked into a tin box. I was just lost... I didn't know what to do with them. I first had them all laying in a box and found myself constantly searching for the right color. So I wanted them to stand. But in what? And how? If someone know of a better solution that doesn't cost a months salary I am listening. And it has to be something that lets me bring all the markers along with me easily because I always bring them along when I go to our summerhouse in  the weekends.



Woyww.... Det er "hva har du på pulten din denne onsdagen-leken" igjen, og etter å ha kikket på alle deltagerne tror jeg at jeg kan bli kåret til den mest rotete av dem alle. Og det er ikke bedre denne uken. Du skjønner.. jeg rydder! Det ser ikke slik ut men jeg har en ide i hodet om hvordan det skal bli så jeg sorterer og vasker stempler til den store gullmedalje. Har forresten funnet ut at om jeg stempler hver dag til jeg blir 250 år så vil jeg ennå ha forferdelig mange ubukte stempler liggende. Jeg har rett og slett for mange. Dette kommer til å ta vinter og vår for jeg klarer bare å sitte en bitteliten stund av gangen pga. nakken, men det kommer til å bli så fint når jeg er ferdig. Mer sier jeg ikke nå...

Jeg må bare vise deg min dorull-Promarker-holderen jeg har laget. Nød lærer naken kvinne å spinne sies det og jeg var så lei av å rote rundt i en eske etter riktig tusj farge og ville ha dem stående, så da stappet jeg en tinnboks full av doruller og satte tusjene oppi. Jeg er veldig mottagelig for en bedre løsning, men det må være en måte jeg kan lettvint få med meg alle tusjene, for jeg reiser mye med dem og trenger å få dem med meg på en kjapp måte.

  6. Jeg håper du kommer deg etter Whiplash'en, prøv å gjøre minst mulig så du ikke blir verre, hvertfall !
    ProMarkere oppbevares best liggende, for ikke å tørke ut, iflg de som kan dette. Fikk et tips om å oppbevare i CD-rack, med smale hyller.. (Ikea er et tips). Når jeg får eget hobbyrom skal jeg kanskje klare en god oppbevaring jeg og.. Foreløpig ligger de samlet i en boks...
    God bedring !

  15. Hi Tonje

    Love your idea for the promarkers - really quirky!!!

    3000 stamps - well thats a bit greedy (tee hee)!!! Hope you get them sorted soon - I bet they take loads of space up... I'd never be able to home all of those stamps in my craft room... I notice that you have posted relatively early this week... well done!!!

    hugs

    Paula

    p.s. hope your whiplash soon feels much better x x x

  19. Your stamps collection is amazing (did you see my puny one a few weeks back hehe?) I think that's a great storage idea for the pens - t=it would work for lots of other things too

  20. WOWZER Tonje. You have an enormous amount of stamps but I LOVE the snoop. Your toilet roll creation for your Promarkers looks good enough to me. A great way to store them. I hope you have a speedy recovery from the whiplash. TFS. ~Glen~

  21. wow I am jealous of your stamp collection!I think your pen storage is ingenious, well done.

    I have my pens in an Ikea dvd rack.

    great solution for in my craft room but you couldn't really take it anywhere as they would fall out lol unless you have a clever husband who could make a hinged acrylic sheet door to fix onto the dvd rack.

  22. Hei Tonje, vil bare kommentere hva du kan bruke og ha promaker tusj i Letraset har etui til og ha de i der det er plass til 48 tusjer og kan settes opp slik at du lett kan få tak i de når du fargelegger, har slike selv og er veldig fornøyd. Du finner dei hos hobbykroken.no under tusjer og tilbehør håper du blir hjulpet. Hilsen Anna Irene.

  25. Lucky you all those stamps. I have my promarkers stored in tubs from ikea that hang from a rail it works for me as they are close at hand, although it took me ages to colour dots to put on the end so I could find the right one quickly! Hugs Pam x

  39. med en sån whiplash skada måste du ta det lugnt så att du inte får dras med den alltför länge. Det vill säga inte städa och inte sortera för mycket ;)

  46. That's a lot of rubber stamps! And I love your marker storage - I'm struggling to find storage for mine that I'm happy with! My fairy stamps were from www.laviniastamps.com, they ship outside the UK but I don't know how much you would have to pay for postage. x
