New Craft Room

I'm not sure if anyone is still checking in on this blog, I could very well be talking to myself right now haha!

I mentioned back in November that we were moving house and believe it or not, up until March of this year, all of my craft supplies were still in boxes...well, in one big box, I don't actually have that much stuff *sob* haha!  To motivate myself to unpack my one box of craft supplies (tee hee!), I decided to finally treat myself to a craft room...I've always primarily crafted at the kitchen table, so it was a case of starting from scratch.

The room is now complete and I hope you don't mind me sharing a few pictures of it, it's not a particularly big room but it's all mine...


The glass partitions are great because I don't feel completely shut off from the rest of the house, however, there are blinds integrated within the glass for when I do want to shut everything and everyone out lol...


The white units are from IKEA (I've seen them in most of my favourite craft rooms), they are very budget friendly...

All white units are from IKEA 'Alex Range' / Bespoke wooden work surfaces

I have a lovely view of the garden from my window...


A couple of very tongue in cheek phrases and a gentle reminder not to take myself (and my everyday challenges) too seriously ;)...


An example of the different containers I've used in the drawers to compartmentalise...

 
 
 
Small white containers from IKEA 'Tillsluta Range' / Translucent marker containers from Muji 

Finally, here's what the room normally looks like, when it hasn't been staged for photographs haha ;)  As you can see, I pull everything out from the drawers and place them within easy reach...


To those of you after an update on the re-opening of the Clearly Besotted store, I apologise for the complete lack of communication.  As previously advised, Jenny (my sister) is taking over and it's taken a while to get her moved from my parents house, to one nearby me...well, nearby my children's school, I live in the middle of nowhere!  This means she can run the business from her home, but I can conveniently pop by and help out if needed :)  At the moment, Jenny has no internet access, but as soon as it is connected, the store will re-open...I am reluctant to give a precise date because British Telecom have previously given us two dates and they both fell through *groan*  It's a brand new property on a new development hence the complications.

Anyway, thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic week!
