The day before my birthday in July, John (DH) told me that he hadn't gotten anything for me for my birthday. One might think that is pretty lame, but after 17 years of marriage, John knows I'm a girl that appreciates USEFUL items as gifts. Sure, it would have been easy for him to order flowers, but he knows I'm really not a flower kind of a person when it comes to OUR pocketbook! I told him that he knew what I wanted (I had only mentioned it a several times in the weeks prior!). Of course, typical guy ... he had no clue what I was talking about! I wanted an Ink Pad Storage Unit from Storage Units Ink! Luckily, I had several ebay auctions end that day and had the money to pay for my own birthday present! John's response: "Perfect! Order it!". It is was done! Thank you, honey!
Denise Wenzloff and her husband offer a full line of HIGH QUALITY, HANDMADE WOOD STORAGE UNITS for rubber stampers. Denise's husband has a full time job during the day, and handcrafts these beautiful units in the evenings and on the weekends.
In July, Storage Units Ink had a discounted price on their units, and were bombarded with orders. That is why I am just now receiving my unit. Let me tell you, it was so-o-o worth the wait!!!
I got the Wall Unit Plus which holds 60 Ink Pads, 60 Re-Inkers, and 60 Stampin' Write Markers! OMG!....it is so nice to have my Re-Inker and Marker right next to the coordinating Ink Pad! Love it love it love it!!! This unit hold all of my 48 Stampin' Up! Classic Colors, 6 Neutrals, and 6 Current In Colors. The quality of workmanship is incredible ... it is just perfect in every way!
This is my Wall Unit Plus. Notice I can even display some of my artwork on top of it! I've been stamping for several years, so some of my ink pads are still the OLD SU style, which I am slowly replacing with new. Until then, I'm going to use my Dymo labeler to label the outside SIDE of the old style pads.
I also own the Stampin' Up! Color Caddy with Extender Kit (pg. 193) ... which I also love! I really needed something that didn't take up the "round space" on my workspace that the Color Caddy did. I've moved the Color Caddy to my nearby shelf and use it for my Craft Ink Pads, Versamark, Encore, Staz-On, and duplicate Classic Ink Pads, etc.
