So finally, after all the promises I have a ‘Craft Room Tour’ video to share of my crafty space. This is definitely my Happy Place, I love being here and of course it is ever evolving.
I am lucky to have a large room but decided that I didn’t want to spread things out too much as I know that I would just try and ‘fill it up’. So what I did was use some old desks and Ikea furniture to create a ‘U’ shaped space and I can literally roll back and grab anything I need.
Main Work Desk
Can you see a few changes that I have made here even since I returned from my holiday, I now have a Gemini Junior so did decide to move a couple of things around to suit that (like I said it’s ever evolving).
Oh, and would you believe that I now am probably in the market for a new computer, mine is at the Doctors.
My most used stamps, cardstocks and embellies are here. I bought the top storage unit from Amart years ago
and wish I had of bought two as they no longer make them anymore and the little cubby holes are perfect!
I had to have one (an Ikea RasKog Trolley) and I love how easy it is to change what I keep in my cart according to what I am using most frequently.
On my Right Side
At my finger tips is everything that I use the most. ATG, blocks, cardstock, mini trimmer…
On my Left Side
My Inks are right by my side, right there with my Fiskars Procision Trimmer and MISTI tool. Of course my computer has pride of place (and do you like my bigggg screen, I inherited that from my husband after he finished studying this year and it’s brilliant!).
Extra Wall Storage
Still easy to get too and I can access any of this in a minute.
You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at YouTube.
I like to be able to see my stuff, I find that if it’s behind closed doors then I ‘forget’ that I have it and then it’s not used. Though, I do like drawers as they hold a heap of stuff and I can keep everything similar together and this makes it easier to find.
Stamp Storage – I am too lazy to totally repackage everything so I use card pockets that will fit the original packaging from the stamps (either the Marbig or Altenew pockets will do this). I only use labels on the dividers between the brands or types of stamps and I type these labels on computer paper, cut them out and tape them down on a piece of very thick cardboard (I am too cheap to pay for a label machine or the refills which are even more expensive).
Thanks so much for visiting today, I hope that I may have helped with some ideas for creating your own fun crafty space. Have the bestest day!
