My Very Own Hand-Crafted Copic Refill Holder!!!



Happy Saturday Everyone!!! I just have to show you a very special gift I received this week and have already installed it in my craft room!!!! I apologize for the poor quality of the picture BUT... Christina Carstensen's husband hand-crafted this wooden Copic refill Holder for me which will hold 200 various ink refills!!! After I fainted, I gathered my composure, and remain in complete awe of his amazing talent and beautiful work!!! Gosh, I am still amazed and shocked!!! Thank you so much Cartensens for always thinking of me in such delightful ways but this was a REALLY special way!!!! I just LOVE it and know there will be envy out there in Copic world!!!!! It is spectacular!!!! BIG HUGS!!!!!
