Our art cupboard (as you might imagine) is full to the rafters. I don't mind getting out the boxes when we are all going to sit down to craft, but I was getting really fed up of having get out the pens every day for drawing. It got even more annoying when the set of felt tips I'd found weren't the exact felt tips that the kids wanted - back into the cupboard I went, again and again.
Something had to be done. I thought about regular pen pots, but they had 2 faults 1) they aren't big enough for our huge collection of drawing implements and 2) if my son wants a red felt tip you can guarantee that it will be on my daughter's side of the table. So I came up with this:
I couldn't find the Lazy Susan on my Ikea visit, so I found a staff member to ask. Problem was she was Spanish - and I assume from the look on her face that the term Lazy Susan isn't something they teach in English lessons!! Does anyone know the Spanish for Lazy Susan? Uno Susana vago?
