Craft room prepared for New Year of Crafting!
I thought I would show a few pictures of my craft room, it isn't this tidy very often mind.
I like to split my work space into two areas, one for jewellery and one for Card Making.
I think that one problem we all have is storage space, I am very lucky in that when we moved to this bungalow it had a spare room, which I soon put my name on! We have added more storage items as time as gone on, I would welcome any good space saving ideas that anyone wants to share.
I have a big butchers block style table that didn't
fit in the kitchen in this house, its perfect height to work at and sturdy enough for any craft job.
We used an old Ikea storage shelf on top of the desk for added storage area. Someone locally had taken an office suite out of someone's home office and was selling it for £30 yes £30 so all the desk with cupboard underneath came from there.
No matter how much space I have, I always seem to end up so cluttered that I have a one foot square work area, I can't seem to get the habit of putting things away as I go.
I use old large yoghurt buckets to store my craft tools in, very handy.
I would love to see your craft room/space, so if you feel like you would like to share yours you could email the pictures and I will gladly show
them. just for a bit of fun.
Another view of some of the storage areas,
I have an old cassette tape holder on the shelf
its perfect for ink pads, the jars on the middle shelf have buttons in.
the space to the right here is my jewellery making space, the drawers on the window sill contain my gemstones.
Well I am going to go and mess this once tidy space up to make some cards to share with you all. I have ordered some more of Sue's Dies, the Scandinavian collection, I can't wait for them to arrive. I had money from my Son and Daughter to spend on craft goodies, perfect gift!
Thanks for stopping by my lovely friends, all being well there should be a card for you to see tomorrow! I was going to do one today but for once in I don't know how long I had my four children all home together, just them, it was lovely, so we celebrating with another Christmas dinner, it was perfect, I am always grateful for family days!
Crafty Hugs to all,
