Jen has some new videos for how she stores larger sets. I'm pretty sure it was sometime this month. Definitely this summer.

I use a ranger Teflon mat but only pull it out when I need it. I protect my surface with a self-healing mat I bought from an art store (cheaper than a sewing store). Then I use the cardboard at the...
