It's my Birthday!

Hello my followers,

First I would like to say thank you to all of my followers!  I am up to 714 of you!  I appreciate all of the hard work you do to makes your blogs so special that every time I go around visiting, I get new inspiration!  I would also like to thank you for all of your comments over the years that have kept me blogging!

So today I don't have a project, I just want to show you what my husband gave me for my birthday!  When I did my first Kit and Clowder Class I wrote down the markers that I didn't have and handed over the list to my man and he bought them for me!

Whooo hooo!  I ask for copic markers for Birthday, Mother's day, Christmas and any other holiday I can think of.

Here is my collection to date!  I went to an Intermediate Copic course years ago.  There was a gal there that was storing her copics this way.  She went home and told her husband how much I like this and he made me one!  You notice that everywhere there is not a marker I have tried to put in a wooden peg.  This is to stabilize the box when I travel with it to make sure nothing comes out.  When I am coloring I prop the box up on the lid to make it easier to see the copics. 

My friend took this picture of me at my birthday dinner on Saturday.  I can't believe I am 60 years old, but I am looking forward to the next 30 years a lot!
