Today, whilst picking up some things for Lily at the shops, I was fortunate enough to have been spoilt with a few little pressies myself! They first, I scored whilst browsing the isles as the local "Dollar Store". My daughter Lily spotted a cute little trolley that she decided would be great to store all her art supplies and goodies... When I finally caught up with her she was happily showing her Daddy and pleading her case as to why this trolley would be such a useful and practical purchase, as 8 year old's do. Whilst initially not convinced they were both quick to point out that it was an excellent idea and felt that I was in desperate need of 3 or 4 of them myself!! Well I did not get 3 or 4 but I did get one and after dinner I dutifully got to task on organising my art journal supplies which where currently stacked up in little boxes all over the kitchen table.
I must say that once I started filling my first little draw I began getting more and more excited as I saw the table clearing and all my beautiful little supplies fitting nicely into happy homes all over this little trolley. I am now so thrilled with this little trolley, that words can not explain as only pictures do. The best part is that it is on castors so I can roll it from room to room as I see fit. Combined with my little fold up table I am fully mobile and can set up anywhere in the house now, yipee!! And here it is:
I was totally surprised over how much stuff this poor little trolley could hold and I am almost half expecting that I will venture out into the family room tomorrow morning to find that the poor little trolley has collapsed under all that weight. Here are some little close-ups:
|All my pens and glue's and taller bottles in my pen caddy.|
|More pens and brushes and other bits and pieces.|
|I LOVE my Distress Inks as you can see.|
|Here are my Tombows, Prismacolor Pencils, Water Soluble Crayons , Inktense Pencils and Water Colors. Plus a couple of my mica powder pots.|
|Some of my mediums and my paints. I was lucky enough to have been allowed to buy a Crackle Medium and 8 new paint tubes today. So, so spoiled!!|
|More Mediums and all my Glimmer Mists and Stickles.|
|The bottom drawer contains my journals, sketch book and watercolour pads and my Art Journal.|
|Hanging my Washi Tapes, Decorative Duct Tapes and my Colour Swatches allowed me to free up some room in my drawers and I love the way it looks.|
I am sure that you will agree, that it is an awesome little trolley and just stores so much stuff!! And to think....I owe it all to my little girl...well spotted darling!! I really was so spoilt and I am so excited to put all my new goodies to use ..... if only I could get some time to myself, heehee. Since its school holidays though I doubt it will be too soon :-(. Looks like it's going to take some rain and indoor craft weather before I will get a chance...lucky for me, we have been getting a lot of that recently..mwuaahahahaaahaaaaa!!
Until next time friends...I hope you are as blessed as I am and happy crafting!!
