Hi, and welcome!
After posting my ikkle Christmas card, last night, I realised that one of the piccies showed a tiny bit of me work desk.....oooo......don't think I've
slipped up done that before...hahaaa!
So, methinks, seein' as my desk is tidy for once, you might like to have a
nosey peek around my craft room......I'd take the chance now, because it's not likely to stay this tidy for long.....hahaaaa!
Sticky Beak Victoria, beforehand.......will definitely not be up to her exacting standards, no matter how organised and tidy I think I'm being, lol......
This photo is taken from my swivel chair....love that I can push with my feet (lazy slob!) and my chair will wheel me to where I want to be......the "mess" in the flowery containers is actually very well organised....by my standards, anyway, lol.......the big grey coloured mat is from IKEA and is designed to be a work-surface on a desk....love it because it's so easy to clean..ha! The wooden drawers are full of paper flowers, cotton threads and needles, and a packet of Polo mints just might be found in there, too.......
There's my ikkle netbook....aawwww...and the pink thingy is my mobile phone....and those scissors are my favourite ones in the whole wide world.....heehee......had 'em for years, and abuse 'em terribly, but they are still as sharp as ever......more than can be said for me, alas........
This basket is where I keep my latest magazines......some of them are actually months old, because I never seem to just sit down and properly read them! I've recently gone through that basket and thrown out 22 mags.....I kid you not!
I've just realised that I only took photos of my desk and one side of the room......will have to maybe show the other side, where I have my paper storage and Big Shot station, another time....if it stays tidy......
The little file box at the top has photos in it, waiting to be scrapped....it's been waiting for quite a while, now.....and then my stamping mats are beside it, next to the mini sewing machine (for cards) that I never use....the gold box holds my Christmas card makes (got 21 now!).
The red and white boxes were bought from Costco, a couple of years ago, with Christmas biscuits in them. They were a gift for my Mam, but I nabbed the boxes back when she'd snaffled all the biscuits....hahaaa! They now hold my collection of lace, wound around old-fashioned wooden clothes pins....very pretty! The files hold my Fiskars shapes templates.
Further along the shelf......next to the Christmas box is my collection of Unity Stamps...don't use them often enough.....then some clear boxes that have embellies in them. The kraft box holds my woollen felts, and there's another pack of cheaper felts, on top of the box. Underneath, there's an assortment of more tiny embellies, my pastel coloured buttons, and the jar with the pretty heart on top holds my coloured netting....the little black and clear drawer set holds some die cuts, waiting to be used, and the red drawers house my felt markers, Sakura pens, and Sharpies....my Promarkers are kept on another desk, under the shelf, but no photo yet.......
More boxes, on the top shelf, holding bits and bobs...we've all got some of those, right?......and the bottom shelf holds some of my plain card stock, and pouches that have vellums and such like in 'em. You can just about see, in the corner, my Xyron machine (hardly ever used), my Bind-it-All (hardly ever used), and my Silhouette machine....yep....hardly ever used!
The slope that you might be able to make out, above that corner, is actually the staircase to the loft, (it's not actually in the craft room, lol.....you go out of the craft room, down the landing, and there's a door to the staircase)....the loft that is supposed to be my sunny, bright sewing room, but is actually being used as a bedroom by Jonathan and Tanys......still saving for that deposit!
If you can stand it, I'll get the rest of the room clicked soon....but only if the maid has been in to clean it...hahaaa!
