Organizing Shelf for my Inks

First I have to apologize for neglecting my blog lately. I really thought I would have tons of time this summer with both kids working but they still seem to rule most of my days. LOL I wouldn't have it any other way though. I love my kiddos and miss them terribly. My sister also found out she has advanced stages of colon cancer. She's in the hospital and my mom has been staying with her. I really worry about my mom because she's diabetic and just had several surgeries to open blockage to her heart. They're an hour away but I try to take dinner to my mom and make sure she's taking care of herself. Well enough about me let's get on to the project for today!
I saw this shelf made out of foam board a while back and thought it was the coolest thing. Well I finally picked up some foam board and tried it. I love it! It works fabulous for all my inks including my copic markers. It is a lil shallow for the markers so I'm going to make a modified version to sit along side it for all my markers. Ok, I don't have all that many now but give me time. LOL

I have my SU pads on the far right and then my Memento and finally my Distress inks. The first I put slanted shelves in to hold my Copics and I have my versamark in the bottom right corner. My cat eye inks are on top along with some stickles and other tools I use often. This whole project cost me $2, can you believe it?! My husband was really skeptical at first because of it being foam board but it really is quite sturdy and plenty durable for inks. Now that he's seen it all set up he thinks I'm a genius for doing it for $2. LOL

The website that I got the pattern from is http://RebelInker.blogspot.com
She has done a lot of work and put an entire pattern together for it. Be sure to thank her if you download and use her pattern. She rocks!!

And if you try it be sure to let me know. I would love to see it!
