Hello there everyone!
Welcome to my little space in our little cottage...
A few years ago, Darryl, my wonderful partner, allowed me to take ownership of one of the bedrooms we have in our cottage and set up a craft space. Darryl has been slowly building all the furniture in my room and I cannot tell you how well made it is, he is so talented and has the patience of a saint LOL.
This first photo that you see is where I sit to craft, this is a large table that is able to house a wood stamp storage, that has a tired system and allows me to view all those wonderful stamps. Darryl built this storage system to not just house the wood block stamps, but also has draws that pull out to house my Mr Huey's Mists, Distress Stains, Ink pads (my most used ones), Zing Embossing Powders, Perfect Pearls, H2O's, Crackle Paint, Stickles, Liquid Pearls and so much more. It really is a fab little storage centre and I love how everything is at hands reach.
I also have my Copics, pencils off to me on the left and to the right is my Making Memories Carrousel...
Here is a few close up photos of the pull out draws and my Copic storage unit..
Off to the left of the table where I sit to craft, I have a hook that I have a heat gun on and I also found these Crop Bags that Studio Calico stocks, this I find is a fabulous way to store my latest Kits that I am currently working with and also the latest products that arrive from Studio Calico.
Also off to the left of me when crafting is a card stock storage centre. Darryl, was able to build this so that one side was all uncut card stock and to the other side I am able to store my scraps of card stock, I also house any pattern paper down the side in Cropper Hopper's and have my main Embossing Powders that I work with.
On top of the card stock storage centre, I have 3 boxes that house all my clear and cling stamps, and yes I do own a lot of stamps LOL, I am slowly moving some of these stamps into my new storage centre, this one that you see below.
I can see that if I ever fill this stamp storage, then I am in trouble and really have a problem LOL, there is so much room for this to grow more stamps..the above photo shows how I store my stamps (thanks to Jennifer McGuire for the wonderful tip).
Moving past the card stock storage centre, I have what I call a cutting station, as you can just see I have my Cuttlebug sitting on top of this shelving, the shelving underneath, houses punches, dies, embossing folders, buttons and a few odd little bits and pieces.
To the left of the cutting station, I have my Original Silhouette Machine and Printer.
Keep going left and we now come to more bench space with a huge embellishment centre that has a lot of product in it..
Underneath the embellishment centre, I have a ink storage centre, here houses my Distress Inks, Jenni Bowlin Inks, Hero Arts Inks and a few odd stamp pads, each of these pull out to house more ink in the back.
Moving to the left again, we now find an island that Darryl built, this houses a lot of product in the draws, everything from paper pads, twine, pan pastels, glue, flowers, embellishment, washi tape and the list goes on.
Here is a close up of a couple of those draws.
This last shot if you are still hanging in there with me, is where I blend using Distress Inks, it is also another spot for someone to come on over to craft, not that it ever happens :)
So there is a look into where I craft and spend my spare time creating...I love the fact that I can come and go and shut the door if I have to when it is really messy...
Thank you for looking at my crafty space.
