A Pretty Place To Craft

My Little Craft Room...

Hello and a very big welcome to my little craft room 'A Pretty Place To Craft' named by my son Nathan. I feel very lucky to have this lovely little space & try to keep it tidy & organized (my Mum says I have a touch of craft room OCD) as it makes it easier for me to know where things are when I work on a project.

This is where I spend most of my time card making & looking at all your lovely blogs. I have a desk big enough for two as my Daughter Jessica-Mae likes to craft sometimes as well.

On these bookshelves I keep all of my embellishments in the stacking boxes. My ribbons & flowers are kept in recycled coffee jars sorted by colour.
I keep my rubber stamps (LOTV, Magnolia Tilda & Molly Blooms) in recycled laundry tab boxes. All of my images I have stamped or coloured are also kept here.
The smaller boxes on the lower shelf hold my sentiment stamps.

I keep pull out pages from magazines in the blue files. These are for cards, scrapbookingrecipes, home décor & other craft ideas.  My A4 coloured card is kept in the pink files.
This room used to be our dining room so needs to have the wallpaper décor changed at some point soon.

I keep all of my 12 x 12 Papers in plastic files in these pink boxes
sorted by company name & in the small boxes are my die cuts sorted in colours. (I need to make labels for these)

In the pink files on the lower shelf I keep all of my seasonal stamps & embellishments for Easter, Halloween  & Christmas.
In the white files are stamps & embellishments for baby boy/girl, valentine, wedding & anniversary. 

Many Thanks for looking at my little craft space today.
