scraps on the floor

Several purges, a major stash buying lull and a new room later... my craft room. It's not fancy. The accessories don't match. My supplies don't live in pretty little jars and my ribbons don't make a beautiful rainbow but here it is, rubbish lighting and scraps on the floor. The desk and the unit are a scrappers staple; Expedit from IKEA. The drawer unit is also from IKEA (Alex) (another scrappers staple). I have some Cropper Hoppers; the ones on the desk are old and don't fit into the squares, the ones in the squares are the new ones that fit! Most of the boxes are from TK.Maxx, I've found a lot of good storage in there and it helps that I enjoy a good treasure hunt. The metal Coke tins house all of my Simple Stories Sn@p supplies. The tins are from BHS (they sell them at Christmas with glass bottles of the good stuff). I have a couple of wooden boxes I've picked up in Sainsbury's and Verbaudet as well. And I have a drawer in a daybed (also from IKEA - Hemnes) for craft supplies (not pictured in the photo but just behind the chair) and that's it. I have a lot more space than I did before with a lot less stuff. I'm looking to get everything off the desk so I have that space just to work on so that might mean another unit or it might mean another cull. I'm not sure yet. I still have a lot of finished albums at my Mum's so I'll need to find somewhere for them to go as well. And I've still my eye on a Raskog cart even though I'm not convinced I NEED one but they are kinda cool.


Thanks for stopping by please add a link to your craft space if you wanna share.

  3. I think sometimes the more we put into pretty jars and boxes, the less we use of it, so now you'll be super super productive xxx

  6. Oh I like it. Sometimes smaller spots are more efficient and easier than a larger one. You have everything in reach, can be so helpful. Beautiful space.
