My lovely new Craftroom and a winner

Here it is, my lovely new Craftroom. It's been quite difficult to take pictures as the airing cupboard is just inside the door on the right so it's hard to get far enough back to fit it in. I had the shelves specially made and how wonderful to have all my punches at hand instead of scrabbling round in a drawer as I had them before. The coloured plastic drawers you can see are part of an 11 drawer unit from Hobbycraft. It has all colours in it so I swapped them around so that the pinks and purple are at the top. These house my papers and card.
The small drawers hold all my Promarkers, conveniently situated on my desk.


The teapot, cup and cupcake string with pegs is the item I bought at the Royal Norfolk Show. Only £5 and just perfect for holding sketch and challenge details.


Here you can see some work from Crafter's Companion on my desk and a view of my lovely new purple chair which is so comfortable and comes with loads of adjustments. Expensive but worth it.

The other side of the room with a smaller desk and a cupboard unit which was in the room before and is perfect for housing lots of stash.

As you can see I have a thing about pretty storage boxes. 

2 handy noticeboards as a reminder of things I need to print and days to post DT cards. The one on the right holds a large e-mail from Sara at Crafter's Companion detailing lots of launches for July. The wall at the back is the side of the airing cupboard. CD rack and laptop conveniently to hand and away from the crafting desk.

I am so happy with my room after 5 years of working on the dining table and having my stuff all over the house. I'm sure I won;t have everything in the right place but need to use it and see how it goes. I hope to finally have some time to make something this evening now it is all sorted.

And the moment you have been waiting for, dada, the winner of my candy is..........
That's Shirley C aka Nannieflash. Congratulations Shirley, e-mail me your address and I'll get your goodies in the post to you. Welcome to all my new followers. I do hope you will continue to follow me I have another small candy to give away to celebrate my Craftroom and I'll post that above.

Heidi said...

You are such a lucky lady, this is an amazing crafting space ( I still work on the kitchen table!!!) The shelves are wonderful, love the colour coding for your papers etc and the wee washing line is a fun addition. I am always losing my wee note book, where i jot down the sketches etc. Know what you mean about pretty boxes, several of my crafty friends have a few of these scattered around must be part of the crafty addiction and love of pretty papers. I am really chuffed that Shirley has won the candy, she's a lovely lady and makes some amazing cards to boot. Hugs Heidi and Happy Crafting in your new room.
