so much to tell......

well the summer holidays have gone, which means more time to craft, but as the days get shorter and the weather begins to turn, it reminds me that Christmas is on its way. So when I looked at my craft space over the summer holidays it filled me with dread.
I share the space with a large dinning table and a 5yr old and every November I clear the dinning table of my craft stuff, cram it underneath my nans old sewing machine table in hope that a tidy fairy will go through it all and sort it out... in my dreams.
I should have taken a pic before the transformation but I think I was so embarrassed by the state of it and the amount of stuff I had. So off we ventured to B & Q to by kitchen units and worktop and then to IKEA for shelving and hanging rail
 
Plus the mammoth sort out and selling of paper
 
 here is the much improved space which holds all my 12x12 paper boxes, my cricut and big shot. My sewing machine I bought 2 years ago, a hanging rail that holds buckets of sewing bobbins and threads and some of my punches
The expedit shelving unit which should really stand the other way up has turned the other way, thanks to my hubby and some industrial sized brackets. As I now have shelf and way to display my creations. The dinning table is the clearest I have ever seen it and it allows me to scrap and create without feel in clutter and chaos.
