Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.
I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!
Thank you for visiting my blog.

One of my solutions to this problem is to make my own storage boxes. This way I have a box in the precise size I need.
I like to use bright materials to cover my boxes and find the nicest ones in the quilting section of my local fabric shop. I use a plain contrasting colour for the lining.
My very dear friend Stephanie-Emma recently asked me to make her a couple of boxes.
Stephanie-Emma wanted one box to store her Copic pens and the other the protect her 12 x 12 papers.
The box for the papers is a little larger that a sheet of 12 x 12 so you can easily remove the sheets without damaging them.
For the Copic pens I added some movable dividers to help keep the pens in place.
And if Stephanie-Emma decides to use the pen box for something else in the future, the dividing walls can easily be removed.
