It's not often I get a gift that has meant so much to me as this one I received from my brother Greg.
I know that all my markers need to be stored horizontally but nothing I saw in the stores would hold as many markers/pens/pencils as I had. I was lamenting this to my sister-in-law who suggested I email my brother (who is a wonderful wood-worker) to see if he could make me something that would not only be practical, but become a work of art on my studio wall.
Greg said "of course!" and sent me this fabulous wooden display unit that I now have on my wall. Easy access to everything I need and also a work of art. I smile every day as I see this above my desk.
Getting a gift, made by hand, is something so special. In these uncertain times, perhaps this is something we can all do as we self-quarantine.
