My Little Craft Space - WOYWW - Lots of Piccies!!

Ok as promised!

A few piccies of my new space.

My apologies that I can't get a full view of my room. As I have mentioned before it is quite little :) So wherever I stand in the room I can only get like a little corner of the room in shot. You will have to use your imagination to piece it all together!

So this was where I worked beforehand...on the dining room table. And it pretty much always looked like this. Or worse!




And now my dining table looks like this! That makes me happy!
So now let me take you upstairs to my little room!

Behind the door is a small but fantastic cupboard. So the next couple of photos are the shelves inside that.
The boxes have my stamps sorted by company.


This shelf holds buttons, paints, sizzix dies, paper,crop-o-dile blah blah blah

Across the length of the room my wonderful husband built a worktop. I can't fit it all into shot ! So onto the far left corner are all my colouring materials.  

On the far right is my tool bag and mini-sewing machine.

And this is the middle of the worktop where all my work will get done! I have a few coloured images...just getting ready for my next class at Simply Create and some that will be appearing on cards soon!

I also have a chest of drawers and this is the top of them:) The little Ikea drawers I altered are looking a bit tired now. I need to tidy them out and re-label them I think.

I recently purchased one of these paper storage racks and I can now see what cardstock I have. I am going to save up and get another one for my patterned paper.

So thank you for bearing with me on all the photos! This is now a wonderful little haven for creating. I now feel when I come up here my work is more focused. I have everything at hand.  I know and appreciate how fortunate I am to have this wonderful little space.

I am going to be entering in to WOYWW (What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!)

Thanks so much for your visit!

You are so organised and your workspace is very appealing. The dining table is beautiful... an art work in itself.

That paper storage is great...I would love to get one but I don't think I could squeeze it into my wee cupboard!

Enjoy your new space!

Fabulous! Props to Norman on the worktop. Completely unrelated to your awesome new room...Seeing your dining table made me sad :( Would love to sit for a cuppa while the kids play in the garden.

What a lovely space - you have it really well organised. I love your old fashioned pencil sharpener on your desk - not seen one like that since I left school, lol!!

susan said...

Looks fantastic! Enjoy your lovely new space xx

Julia Dunnit said...

Lovely calm and tidy space gal. You're right, the little chest needs updating -only because you couldn't possibly fit all of your buttons into that one teeny drawer any more! Love the scrabble tile collection too...am a bit green eyed about it actually! Happy new room and thanks for WOYWWing!

Paula said...

It looks a joy - & I love that shallow drawer paper unit. A bench is brilliant - I have one too. thanks for showing the way your organize too - I've recently switched to having my stamps by company so it was such an encouragement to see you'd done that.
Take care with all the prep work.

My goodness you've been hard at work. You've done a wonderful job on your new space. Thanks so much for sharing.

Di said...

My room is tiny honey - but out of little acorns and all that! I love your room - thanks for showing. I had to laugh about the dining table - same here for years, and such a relief to be able to plonk a vase of flowers in the middle now that it's free. Great minds and all that! Di x

Marjo said...

Thanks for the wonderful peak into your awesome workspaces! Thanks for the peak and sharing, hugs Marjo #6.

Cauliflower Cupcake said...

How organised are you! Wow that room looks like heaven. I really want to get one of those 12x12 storage racks - I can't see what papers I have -it's annoying because I know I have some really lovely ones. No excuse to create something really beautiful now!
Have a great day
