Nothing makes me happier than spending time with family. A few weekends ago, we had our grandsons over for movie night. When Brennar saw my blender brushes and asked me what they were used for. Once I showed him the Distress Oxides, he went to town. See what he made!
We had so much fun. And he is adorable! This kid is full of life. It’s so amazing to watch him figure out how everything works. Four is a fun age. When he saw the blending brushes, he wanted to make something. I don’t blame him, I find the colorful brushes inspiring too!
I looked long and hard for the right blending brushes. I knew I wanted them to be this medium size, the larger ones I tried were too hard to hold when blending the inks. And I didn’t want a label so I wanted the color to be part of the handle. These are perfect!
I recently moved these inks into the top Alex desk drawer so that I use them this year. I had them tucked away, inside the Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Ink Pad Tins down in a lower drawer. I also forgot to pull them out and use them on the backgrounds of cards. I’ve seen some folks build a slotted storage solution, but then I realized I could pull out the plastic holder inside the tins and place them directly into the drawer. Looks so inviting too!
See my video about the Alex Drawer storage solution for more ideas.
Here are the plastic trays in a close-up view. They are very sturdy and keep the lids on the inks. I’ve read that it is ok to store the distress oxide inks on their sides and I have not had any troubles with the pads since they are made of a foam pad.

I will cherish these memories for a very long time. Playing with the grandkids is the best. Looking forward to our new little grandson coming in September 2023.
