Craft Room Reveal : Hilde

Hi everyone, there is nothing more fun than to have a bit of a snoop over at someones else's craft room...
Well over at Crafting with Dragonflies, we are having a bit of a Craft Room Reveal, no one more excited about that than me, I love checking out where my girls do their creative stuff...

I have been very blessed indeed to have my own craft room now...but after 32 years of marriage, I don't feel guilty one bit....when the kids were little we never had the money, time or room....but now I can enjoy things a bit more and have more 'me' time....my husband loves to sit on the couch and play on his Ipad and I often hear the sound effects when he watches his car you tube restoration videos.
So we both enjoy each others company, and he shows me his video and I show him my finished creations, and my daughter who still lives at home will often use the computer, when I am crafting...

I have done a bit of a before and after....
Here is one of my corners before- bit messy 

Here is the after
 I finally got myself some cheap cube shelves from Fantastic Furniture and I like the look of it a bit better. You can see the ribbons in the jars to the left and my stamp pads...More ribbons, stamps, embellies and stuff are in the shelves...this corner is to the right of me where I sit.


This is a long desk that I can spread out across, sometimes I spread myself a bit too far.....
but this organised mess is how I create, to the left you see punches and stuff, lots of stuff .I need this organised mess, it helps my creativity....so I dont tidy this one............grrrrr
When I look out the window, I can see a bunch of eucalyptus trees, watch the Rainbow Lorikeets play in my neighbours gutter, and at the moment a beautiful Jacaranda tree in full bloom....very nice.

Before: Here is a shelf with all sorts of wonders, as I was tidying up,
I found stuff I didn't even know I had.This is right behind me where I sit...
Here it is after, changed a few things around, but not that much. Got rid of the tall skinny shelf on the right and replaced it with a wider one I had, just rearranged things a little. I use the ironing board for my die cutting, not for ironing, who likes ironing, bahh, not me, found a better use for it...
At the bottom right you can see my card stock....my stamps and dies are all in the boxes in the shelves.. 
Well there you have it, maybe not as big or as much as some, but still massive....and I  am very blessed to have it and I enjoy working in my creative crafty room....
I hope you liked having a look, blessings Hilde

  1. Craft room envy here Hilde! I have a cupboard in the garage and my dining room table... perhaps I should make my girls share a bedroom and take over one of theirs!!
