Sometimes the littlest thing can make life so much easier!
I always keep Zentangle® tiles in my purse just because you never know who will keep you waiting (well, sometimes you know that) or when you will be struck by inspiration.(You know, that time you were sitting in the restaurant deep in conversation with a friend and then you all of a sudden saw the pattern on the wall behind them!)
I like the idea of putting the tiles in a plastic floppy drive case. That keeps them nice and tidy. The problem was not with that case, but with the abyss that is my purse. I could never keep the pens from flying around or hiding in the congregation of crumpled up receipts. I was always digging, and then I may or may not get the right pen, since there is a whole congregation of those, too!
Wandering around my local office supply, I figured, if the floppy drive case worked, might there be some other new gadget case that I'm not familiar with? And what do you know? How exciting to find this hard drive case that not only fits the tiles, but also fits the pens and pencil in a whole other area away from the tiles! Zip it up to close it and the whole thing fits nicely into the abyss! I am so excited by this that I have to wonder about myself, but what the heck. Life is full of surprises, big and little. A mess of little ones is ok by me.
