My Craft Room

Hi everyone.  Sorry to have been a bit quiet - I think that I may have melted in the heat that hit the UK last week!!  Thankfully it has cooled down a little now and so I feel a bit more like doing stuff again!!

This morning I have finally gotten around to uploading my photos that I took ages ago of my finished craft room and I thought that you might like to see it now that it is finished. 

So here goes-

This is the view that greets you as you enter.

Then this as you come around the door.  The island (at the front of the photo) is for me to sit at my laptop.  It has a shelf around the other side which pulls out (under where you sit) to put the laptop on so it is out of the way.

As you go into the room more you can see my bespoke cupboards and fab work top.  (The work tops were left over from when we did the kitchen!!)

This is the room taken from my round table in the window.

And again. This time I was standing the other side of the table. You can see my Grand Calibur and guillotine which live permanently on my worktop.

Behind these purpose built cupboards lurks all my wooden stamps plus some of my papers and cardstock.

As you can see I've kept them all contained in Really Useful boxes and they are all labelled!! How organised am I??

This is a close up of what my handles look like.  The knobs that are on the wardrobe match these as well.  Aren't they pretty!!

Now I know that this looks like a built in wardrobe for clothes and indeed it did use to be!

But now it houses some of my stuff such as my 12x12 papers, cardstock, pens, dies, magazines, etc...

And more boxes behind the third set of doors that you saw containing things like clear stamps, re-inkers, glitter glues, pens, glue, ribbons, etc....

Then lastly behind these doors......

are some more boxes!!  This time containing packing materials, envelopes and odds and ends plus all Mum's quilling stuff.  (She has got the top and bottom shelves in here.  It is surprising just how much stuff she has got!!)

Would you actually believe that I did get rid of a load of my stuff too - lol!!!

Anyway I am now all sorted and it is a real pleasure to be working in there!!

I'll be back soon with a card but meanwhile I must just tell you that The Hobby House are currently having a clearance sale of some of their fabulous self-adhesive pearls.  I bought a whole load a couple of days ago as I just LOVE their embellishments.  So if self-adhesive pearls are your sort of thing you might want to check it out as they are down to just 80p a pack - normally £1.50!!!
