Hi, My Crafty Friends,
Firstly, an apology as I have not posted for more than a week! Work is pretty busy at the moment and I do a lot of morning shifts so it is a long day! Anyway…….. I have been able to spend some time with my boys as they have both had some time off work. They are very excited also as they are going to the USA next year! We went to Melbourne on Monday for a day out together and it was a lot of fun. I have also spent the weekend with my sister which is always a nice break 🙂 We decided to get a new lounge suite so yes, I have had to move my Scrap Space from the lounge to accommodate it!
Oh well…………….nothing like a change 🙂 The boys helped me heaps moving some of my heavier furniture which was great and getting rid of our old chairs etc ready for the new 🙂
It was a bit of a job moving things AGAIN, but well worth it to have the loungeroom back 🙂
As you can see I like setting up my space along the wall in our quite large dining room, as there is great light in the front window and it makes it look very roomy! I try not to overcrowd my desk with STUFF as I like to have a good space to create a MESS!
I invested in a new bookcase as my old one was getting a bit beyond holding much these days! This is just as you come into the kitchen door and on the left. I have a couple of pieces displayed on the top-shelf, the second shelf is Napkins, book pages images, etc for mixed media and my sewing box. The third shelf is all my pretty trims and laces plus my ATC holder and a couple of friends;) Forth shelf is some stamps, Junk Journal stuff and my large dies. The fifth shelf is my fabric and 6×6 pattern paper pads. To finish is a few of my journals and my recipe folders.
My Raskog Cart which I purchased from IKEA a few years ago, has been an invaluable piece of storage. It now keeps all my most used Junk Journal supplies, and I can move it closer to me if I need to or use it in the lounge room to craft when I am spending time with my boys.
This table has some storage cubes on it and is covered with protective plastic plus my Hedi Swapp nonstick mat. I can use this space to use mixed media supplies. The cubes hold my die cut machine and dies, more stamps and ephemera for my Junk Journals, a few of the journals I am using most at the moment, my washi tape storage, the tins hold my watercolor and distress markers and any other supplies I use often.
My little white bargain desk, I have had forever and I decided to use it for my computer. This gets it off my large corner desk and gives me more space with the tower underneath and my craft sewing machine, when not in use. I have two large jump rings with stencils on them so they are easy to find.
I have one part of a custom unit, on my large desk to keep my most used scrapping and stamping supplies handy. I have a few of my punches, stamps, tools, extra supplies like adhesive, staples, ribbons etc in the baskets and containers.
