Finally, I have some photos of my craft room to show you. The extension we've had built was supposed to be 2/3rds a sitting area and 1/3rd craft room but it's now 2/3rds craft room, lol! I've not put everything away yet as I'm still deciding where my stash should go. WARNING PHOTO HEAVY!
This is a dresser I had made to my design which I'm so happy with. It's really tall and wide so I couldn't get it all in the photo.
My jars with my ribbons and bits and bobs.
We decided a table with drawer units on lockable castors was more practical as I can give myself more workspace by pulling the units out.
This was my mum's dresser base which I helped her to choose and had always loved. The fretwork pulls down to reveal a shelf where I keep my 12"x 12" cards pad and cutting plates for the eBosser on top. My dies are in the right hand box and paper pads in the left hand one.
The last pictures show what's in the dressers. I put self adhesive Velcro on the ribbon hangers and attached inside the door and the other photo shows the fabric baskets holding my flowers etc.
I hope I've not bored you with all my photos. It's so much nicer working on a big table with everything in the same room and my living room looks a lot tidier without my crafty stuff here, there and everywhere too, lol.
Don't forget there's still time to enter my candy giveaway if you haven't done so already. That's all from me today. Take care and enjoy your crafting.
