I Love Pens!

Kelly Kilmer is asking for a little show and tell about pens and their homes on her blog which I am nerdy excited to both post my collection and read about other peoples collections as well. The majority of my pens live in three places.


First, my very favorite pens and markers are packed in little travel sized containers to travel in my journal bag. I have a spotted make-up that stores all of my must have Sharpie Water Based Poster Paint pen and Permopaque markers by Sakura. (Who needs make-up when you have pens?) I also have a metal tin that used to be filled with Christmas goodies that holds my favorite Gelly Roll pens including: Dawn and Dusk Moonlight, Dark Metalics, Black Glaze, White Glaze, Stardust Glitter, and a few other colors that were just loose in my collection. This container also hold a few colored Signo pens and a white out pen.


Then I have these cute containers that hold pen, markers, and paint pens on my desk. They remind me of cupcake wrappers and keep more writing tool, including some backups, at my finger tips.


Finally, I have a little wire basket on the top shelve of the supply rack next to my desk that holds sets of pens and markers. These sets include Gelly Roll Gold Shadow, Twilight Colors, Bright Metalics, and Souffle. Pilot Latte pens, Popcorn pens, and Zig Metalic Writers to name a few.

I know I have a problem but Kelly and my mom both support me in it!

Notice I only photographed the pens. While I do like to be organized my desk always looks like it has just been hit by a tornado. :)

Great collection! I have that lime green plastic "cupcake container" and I never thought of using it for pens! Great idea! Thanks, &rew

Dawn,
You MUST try a Gelly Roll Black Glaze pen! They are divine! Debbie has them in two packs for $4. I will bring mine for you to try out this weekend.

You put my (small) pen collection to shame. Where did you get those cupcake holders?

Clever and colorful ways to store pens!
I have a question though...
I read that we should be storing our gelly roll and most other types of pens in an upright position...with their writing tip down so they won't dry out...so I am wondering how others do this?
