Happy WOYWW. Sorry I missed last week but what with hubby's birthday and a new furniture delivery (well, new to us...it was from a charity shop but fitted the bill perfectly and was recycled) meant I was rather busy.
I do hope Julia doesn't mind, but we try to keep the postings short as there are many desks to get around-but this is both photo and text heavy as there is SO much desk/storage space to show this week! Sorry Julia.
The great thing about doors is that they hide a multitude of sins though I have started to make mini bolts of my fabric (or at least the stash that is big enough). It was an idea I found on pinterest where you use a piece of cardboard and fold the fabric-simple and meant that I created even more space!! Top left in my leather (I went on another workshop at the weekend so will be playing with this soon) and bottom is my quilting batting for the quilt I have been putting off making for a year now!!!
It is amazing as the dining room was crammed full but with 2 new pieces of furniture (the double unit replaced an old Ikea kitchen unit we used to have there) we now had lots of space AND room to move the record unit from the spare bedroom (you can see half of it in the picture above-yep, that is just a SMALL selection of hubby's vinyl-but looking at my stash I can hardly comment can I?).
What to do with the now redundant old unit from the dining room? I know, remove the very small unit from the craft room and replace it with the dining room one!! Now, in theory this was a great idea-in practise......this meant clearing out one side of my VERY overstuffed and MINI craft room (too small for a single bed when its empty)-not an easy task I can tell you (it's enough to drive a woman and certainly her hubby to drink, I can tell you!).
So, this is my craft room (with thrifted recycled curtains). The space on the right is where I used to have a small low unit that had lots of drawers stacked on top (which would be stacked on top of the new unit).
With all the crap off the floor etc now stacked on my so small desk space!
Now look! I know, most of you may not be able to see the difference-but believe me, it's a HUGE difference. The glass fronted cabinet from the dining room means that I have about 1 foot extra height in my storage. My coven secret santa was a notice board with pegs (next to the window) and on here I change the cards that inspire me..currently I have some from Coven members, a WOYWW one, one from a school friend and the lovely Zoe's colouring birthday card.
The red box is my scrap box and I even sorted this out so lots of my scraps are now in little A5 plastic folders from poundland.
I placed my stash in boxes and labelled them and even have a few boxes that are empty!
You can see how small the room is (but crammed full!) but now it is clean and tidy....place you bets as to how long it stays like this!!!
Phew, did you make it to the end? Well done....as a reward here are this weeks "Man Bites Dog" cards-'Heiress Burns Last Lover'....ooer they are once again a bit sensational!
So, why not join us across the globe (link on the right) and show us what is on your workdesk this Wednesday? Go on, its a legal snoop and they are a lovely bunch.
