Today is the fifth Friday of the month so at Card Makin' Mamas Challenge we are doing something a bit different and the DT are showing off their craft rooms. This was the reason I had a mega tidy earlier in the month - not before time I may add. My craft room is in the loft, my husband converted it for me a few years ago and I have gradually taken most of it over now, he just has a tiny desk in the corner! There are a few pictures so get comfy!
As you walk in this is on the right. The basket has bits and pieces, mainly new things waiting for me to try out. The CD holder holds my smaller dies in CD folders arranged by type. The plastic basket has my Magnolia and Lily of the Valley stamps. My husband made the rack for my Stickles, they don't all fit in so my less used ones are in a drawer.
Below that shelf is a storage unit for most (not all) my Coredinations Card stock and in the drawers are ink pads, gems, embellishments, Stickles etc. Behind it are pull out shelves and there are all my flowers, scrap books (waiting to be done) 12 x 12 patterned papers, more card stock!
My storage for Copics above some re-inkers and various glues.
This is my work area. Love my carousel it keeps my scissors, Primas, Distress Ink Markers, spare Copics and all sorts. On the little shelf things I use a lot like Black Memento and Versafine and bits and bobs. In the little drawer unit on the end are charms, brads and all sorts of bits.
Underneath that is more storage - tapes and foam dots, acrylic blocks, Promarkers, envelopes, polybags, stamps, some larger dies such as Dienamics and Cheery Lynn, more ink pads, glitters, chalks.
Next to the drawers are some shelves where I keep more glues, glitters, even more Coredinations, Paper pads, folders with papers in and Martha Stewart punches. Then I have my Cameo and printer and pc.
On the other side I have my guillotine which is sitting on top of a big unit from Storage 4 Crafts which has all sorts in - white card for stamping, ribbons, flowers, stamps, coloured card, felt etc. Beside my guillotine is my Big Shot Pro which is sat on top of a drawer unit which has all my Spellbinders dies (I do have quite a few of those lol). On the worktop my scraps and card stock in the racks, Cuttlebug, Melting Pot, Embossing folders, heat gun. On the shelves are buttons, cards from blogging buddies and some of my ribbons. My sewing machine is just on the floor and there are more shelves underneath you can just see which have all sorts of stuff on and my finished cards!
Here is a closer look at the top. I store my 6 x 6 pads along the back.
And that's my craft room. Because its in the loft its a bit awkward because there are no straight walls. All along the end is a row of wardrobes my husband built which I just put my winter or summer clothes in all hung up and then swap them around each season!
Hope I haven't bored you too much but if you are like me I love looking at people's craft rooms especially some of the super duper ones you see on Pinterest! If you fancy having a look at the other DT's crafty spaces clink on the InLinkz below and it will take you there and you can have a peek!
I've schedules this as I will be at the hospital with Dave - our second home at the moment. Thank you so much for looking, take care xx
