What’s On Your Work desk Wednesday 327
It’s been a long, long time since I participated in WOYWW but as I now have my own craft space and not the dining room table I thought I would join in today. It’s all pretty tidy at the moment as for the past few weeks all I have been doing is sorting out my craft stash and waiting patiently until I could get a desk/table into the craft room. Fingers crossed I will now get my creative Mojo back and being more productive with my stash. On the right is a traditional style pencil box that I made and decorated at a workshop down at Scrapbook Magic last week. On the left is the beautiful leather journal which my dear friends Karen and Phillip gave to me for my birthday last year which I am now feeling brave enough to start using
While I was sorting out more of my crafting stash I came across the kraft coloured journal which I bought really cheaply at Hobbycraft last year I think. I have decided to use it as a Christmas planner that should help use up some of the stash and hopefully make me a little more organised for the upcoming festivities. I know it is still quite a few weeks away but it does have a tendency to creep up on you and I'd like to be a bit more prepared for it this year than I was last year..
Anyway for those that are interested this is my new crafting space. The table I got thanks to Margaret at Scrapbook Magic fitted nicely into the alcove of our back bedroom (my craft room). The cube units didn’t fit exactly how I wanted them to so they have had to be turned sideways but I can live with that. Behind the door I put a shoe rack up to hold some of my SU punches the others are in the bookcase which fitted nicely behind the door space.
Our bed sofa which I can use when all I want to do is stitch, knit or crochet. To the side of the sofa is a faux leather ottoman which is full of my recyclable stash which I hope to upcycle in the future. Finally my two units which are housing my vast collection of stamps, Cricut cartridges and a few jars which will eventually have buttons, brads and flowers in (when I get round to sorting those out).
I have to confess that I do have an overflow cupboard in our small bedroom which is full to the brim and waiting to be sorted but at least it is now finally out of the kitchen/dining room cupboards. I moved all of that stash upstairs today and have been busy cleaning out and re-arranging all of the cupboards. DH is away for a couple of days so I thought it would be kind of fun to confuse him when he comes back and can’t find anything LOL! Off now to check out other WOYWW bloggers.
