Sharpie madness

Today I bought some new sharpies, and decided I finally needed to organize them. It can take time to dig through them all to find the right colors.

I was in for more than I bargained for.

First of all, I have 132 sharpies. Had not counted them all until today! The organizer I ended up making only holds 123, but the extras are repeated colors that are wearing down.

This took me a couple hours to make and I'm quite happy with the result:
Just now need to make a drawstring bag to keep the roll in, so I don't lose any. Might make it difficult to find a place to roll it out when I'm drawing, but I usually choose my handful of colors before I start a project.

Anybody else have a sharpie addiction?

Seriously, that's the biggest collection of Sharpies I've ever seen. I think not even Staples has more.

I think your post is very good, rather I would have liked to read a bit more about this topic because I think it is quite interesting
