Craft space and announcement

I wanted to show you all my new embellishment center!
The shelves and glass jars were 50% off at Hobby Lobby. So I payed about $30 for those three shelves and 12 jars! I love how it turned out! Now I can see my embellishments and use them more!

Coloring a hermit crab with BIC Mark it markers.

The stamps are Studio G from the $1 bin at Joann's. I store them in a CD case as a set. I got quite a few that are ocean images. Love them!!!!

I found the Mark it markers at BJ's for $9.99. However I thought I was buying the set with 36 markers. Lol! I am in search of those to see what colors I am missing out on.
