Over at Crafting with Dragonflies, we've been showing off our creative spaces, and this week is my turn!
Now, I don't have a craft room, unlike so many of you lucky peoples out there, but I do have a craft desk. And a craft floor, lol. I craft at a desk in the livingroom, and use the floor under and beside the desk to stack stuff too...
This is it. Most of it is crafty, except the drawers in the desk (household paperwork, booooring!)
The area under the desk houses my box of ribbons and my bag of flowers. Under the drawers I also have a basket of punches and a bag with materials such as hessian (burlap) and such.
On the floor beside the desk I have my 12x12 papers, my cardstock and my box of stamps. Also a couple of boxes for finished cards (one Christmas, one everything else)
In front of all that are my new embellishment boxes, which are always in the way! lol.
On the left hand side of the desk I have my 8x8 and 6x6 paper pads, and my jar of lace! Next to it is a box full of toppers and suchlike (which I rarely use anymore, so I should probably move to somewhere else!) on top of that box are some magazines, my box of charms, my box of card scraps and some bits and bobs I'm working on.
Shelves that house more ribbon and some buttons, and most importantly, my LOTV stamp folders and art pad and sketch pad. this is my favourite shelf! lol.
And finally, the area I work at. As you may be able to tell from the cutting mat, knife and ruler and distinct lack of guillotine, I cut everything by hand (card blanks, mats, you name it). I would be lost without my knife and ruler! On the righthand side are my two extra large pencil cases full of Promarkers, and there are various tools and supplies dotted around the desk. I also have my "Tim Holtz Corner", with my stack of distress inkpads, Stickles and other "potions" :-)
So there you have it. It isn't much, but we live in a shoebox and I am taking up far too much room already as it is! Hopefully we'be be building a conservatory next summer, which will then become my craft room, and give us a little breathing room back in the lounge!
Anyways, hope you enjoyed my little tour... I'd love to see where you all craft too!
Have a fantastic day!
