I am Copic CRAZY!!!!!!

Wanted to pop in and let you know that I have not forgotten you all. We are back from Mega Meet...and what a great time that was!!!! I saw Tim Holtz for the first time and got him to sign his book for me "in person"....I say in person because it was signed by him to me...I just was not present at the time and it said something about me missing a great I had him sign it in person. He thought it was prety funny. He is not what I thought him to be. I thought he would be very uppity and standoffish....but I saw none of that from him at all. Very nice guy. Mingled and had lots of pics taken with lots of people.

Anyway, back to the blog....I am going to be working on this blog a lot in the VERY near future (I am actually figuring out how I am going to do it exactly at the present time). I promise you will like it when it is all done. I am adding buttons on it so you can click around and find what you are looking for very easily...and it will be in stay tuned!!

In the meantime, I thought I would share my Copic addiction with you all...hahaha. I have graduated to bigger and better totes to carry my markers to classes with me so I will show you what I had and what I now have....I still need something like 32 markers to have all 334 of them!!!! UGH!!!!

Anyway, I started with this....

Moved up to this....

and now have THIS!! .... are going to think I am crazy, but they need more colors!!! There is not a very good selection of yellows at all....and a couple others, too, but the yellows leave a lot to be desired for me.

Thanks for letting me share my addiction.....haha. If you want to learn how to color with these markers, come into the store and sign up for a beginner Copic do not have to have the markers for this class and you will love it!!!

And don't forget to stay tuned for the new and improved blog in the very near future!!!!!

Until later....Sharon
