WOYWW 116 Marker Heaven

 I've been having oodles of fun with markers. Since my budget does not allow for all the Copics my colorful self pines for, I was tickled pink to find Memento Markers at thirty percent off, some Adirondack Markers on clearance and a couple of the empty alcohol ink pens (to be filled with blender or alcohol inks of your choice) also on clearance. I'm loving the Memento Markers, but the Adirondack Markers are not really the color of the alcohol inks of the same name.

So I filled one of the markers with Citrus Alcohol Ink, and I've discovered it's very close in color to one of the Memento markers. I'm thinking it's a favorite color :D. I'm having a really hard time deciding which color to use in the other marker, but Stream is a front runner.

I found a copy of Craft Stamper at Joann Fabrics.

And inside an article from WOYWWer Hels Sheridan :D. Which reminded me, it really was Wednesday and I had not posted yet lol.

So if you are wondering what's all this WOYWW, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander. Better yet, snap a picture of your workdesk and join in the fun :D.

OK, a really ignorant person here. I've never heard of those markers, not a single one (except Copic of course). But I like that you got many on clearance or discount. Pretty decent, if I do say so myself! And that UK Stampers book is a jewel.

Great finds on pens there - I bought the Adirondack one years ago - must see if they still are active.
Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Neet #2

Great selection of pens! Thank you for reminding us there are wonderful sources of color other than Copics!

It is easy to forget that there is a world of pens out side copics and pro's ...and many of us have some of them in a drawer some where still. well done getting such a good bargain.
