Guess The Crafty Item - Revealed!

Hiya crafters!
Well there were a few very clever guesses yesterday evening as to what my new exciting crafty item is and here is the answer:

A Promarker Storage Unit!!! :D :D :D Yay!

*** A big well done to the winner chosen at random, ChrisAndCat!!! ***

Please PM me over on Docrafts with your address and I'll get your prize sent before the weekend.
Thanks to everyone who played along. :)

So, I had been saying I wanted a storage unit for my pens as I was getting annoyed with having them in plastic boxes and having to search around for colours. Well after a month or so of dropping hints we set to designing a very basic unit.
What you can't really see from the photo is that the box is 4" deep with a solid back and two lattice effect panels to hold the pens securely. This means it can be turned horizontally for transport to my boyfriends when I craft there over the weekend or if I go to crafty play days at a friends. Clever touch! ;)
Dad drilled all the holes, 180 of them! (for the basic collection, all Seasonal Limited Editions and a few extra just in case!) so we marked the grid out with a pencil as a guide, mounted them on the deep frame and it was pained white.
I am loving how easy it is to find my pens now! :D
No one except crafters would understand how exciting this is, so I hope you've enjoyed my little share. Ni. X
