Labelled my Copics

Hey everyone, thanks to those who have been leaving such lovely comments.  My arm is getting better and I hope to do a little more computer time this week.  It's just the muscle in between my wrist and elbow that is strained. I have discovered that I am really right handed.  Every thing I want to do involves the used of my right hand and I am hopeless trying with my left.

Thought I would share this little project that kept me busy.  Thanks to my wonderful friend Helen who shared this idea and also tracked down the CD rack for me.  An item that is dying out fast we have discovered.  Due to people buying their music online and possibly furniture already having built in CD racks.
I really liked this idea of adding the Copic pen number to the ends of my pens to make them easier to find.   So I printed all the numbers on paper in Helvetica font size 7.  Then I used my hole punch to punch all the numbers out.  I did find that if I punched out the numbers with a double layer of the paper the edges didn't fray.

Next I grabbed my Dimensional Magic and added a daub to each lid before attaching the number.

The finished product.
The reason for me finding the CD rack was because I had too many pens to fit in my pencil case.  I felt like I owned a lot of Copics.  Now I look at them here I really feel I need to add more to my collection. :-)
Oh the shelving are the bottom half of empty CD cases.  Just the cheap clear thin ones you can buy.

Well have a lovely day.  Bit showery here.  Have a feeling the sun will be out to suck up all that rain and heat things up soon.  Humidity!


  1. What a great idea now you know what colours are where and it does make it a lot easier well done :)Sandra H

  2. Now that's a great way to organize those copics.
    I had trouble with the muscles in my arm to and I found Arnica Gel to help a great deal. It is clear colored dries quickly and comes from the Arnica plant. You might give it a try. I find it at health food stores. Just a thought. I am always overdoing and straining. LOL

  3. Great idea using a CD rack - very organised. Hope your arm mends quickly before you become a lefty ... ha ha ha
