Jennie's Copic Refurbishing Station
Okay, there are several of you who have said "I would LOVE your job". LOL I love my job, but this is my least favorite part of it. Each Marker needs the lids removed and cleaned, find the correct lids for each marker that guests mixed up for me, tested for ink, refilled, nibs checked and replaced if necessary, then I need to sort them into packets of nicely arranged and coordinated colors. This will take me days. Volunteers???? LOL
COPIC BONE YARD. Dear wonderful US Airways was kind enough to smash my luggage that was carrying Copics and popped the lids off about 50 markers. Normally this does not happen so they must have REALLY SMASHED my luggage - they even cracked the side of my hard sided suitcase. Of course they don't cover things like sports equipment and hobby materials or their cases - it's in their disclaimer - these just happen to fit into that catagory. The worst part of the ordeal is it was summer in California and I left my luggage in the garage for a week before discovering the mess.. by then the markers were all dried up because they sat in 100+ temps without their lids for a week. Don't do that you guys! Bad idea. I always share the fun days of my job so I thought I would make you guys feel better by sharing that not all aspects of any job are perfect..... LOL I still won't trade my job away.... love it. However, I will put off my manicure until after this chore is done! Inky messy hands are on the way!
