Get Well card for Purple Onion Designs (video)!

Today I have a video for Purple Onion Designs sharing a little simple Prismacolor pencil colouring and some really sweet images. Gotta say how much I’m loving this Candy Stripe Background, especially stamped tone on tone!

You can see my video here or Watch it at Youtube.

My Creative Place!

This is a post that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time and finally here it is.  I’ve recently had some time off work and haven’t been able to go too far so I have been spending much of my time in my Craft Studio / Room / Space…  anyway, it’s where I spend my time when I’m not at work (just ask my hubby).  I am lucky enough to have a rumpus room just for me and it’s connected to the kitchen, dining area so I try not to leave it too messy because it’s visible.

I’ve been organizing, and so I thought I would take some pics and share them with you, the trouble is that the weather isn’t being very helpful here today so I apologise in advance for a) the grainy photos and b) my photography.

My Craft Room

Colourful Cats

Paper Storage

The shelf under the desk is from Ikea this is where I keep my A4, 12 x 12 cardstock and 8 x 8 paper pads. Oh, and on the top shelf, that’s my ‘handmade’ light box ( HERE is the link to that post), I hope to have a permanent set up one day, I just haven’t worked out where yet….

My fave storage

This is my fave shelf, I bought it at Super Amart Furniture.  (I’m not sure if this is only in Australia) I just love all these little cubes.


I rarely use them but I love to have them and to look at them….  Buttons!


AnnaBelle Goodies!

My Stamps

How I store my stamps.

Drawers for Embellies & Bling

These drawers hold my embellies, bling, pearls, twine, glue dots, chalks and sweets…. but don’t tell my husband lol.

The Essentials

Literally my ‘right hand man desk’ everything that I use ALL the time is just here, my Fiskars Stamp Presses (ahem, yes I have 2), my inks, pencils, corner punches, Copics, Paper Trimmers, pencils.  And on top –  Scissors, tapes, baby wipes etc… This shelf is also from Ikea and my lovely husband has put in on casters so that it is the same height as my desk and it moves, who could ask for more.


Love love love my Copics, I just lift these containers up on to the desk when I’m colouring.  I store them in basic colour families, I find it easier that way.

And finally I wanted to share with you the VERY technical setup that I use when I am videoing tutorials….  there may be just a little room for improvement needed here lol.

Very technical video setup

Thanks for joining me with my journey around my craft room today.
