My craft room...

Hi guys,

I am uber busy at the moment doing design work for my next project and don't want to stop whilst I am on a roll and the creative juices are flowing - hence the shortage of posts yet again!  I am sorry!  Instead, I decided to update you on the progress of organising my craft area and just look at the result...


...I have to say, it's not always this tidy, but as I was hoping, in between crafting moments I can take 10 minutes and put everything away...plus, I know where everything is!!!  I know, it's not normal, and if I had spun around 360 degrees and taken a pic of the other side of the room, it would look a lot different to this! I am contemplating saving up and getting some more cabinets so that I can tidy away all DH's computer and electronic stuff (which is what I was talking about on the other side of the room!)  but until then, I have to be content with my tidy half of the craft/work/supposed to be dining room!

Well, I do have a card to share with you...



















I made this little easel drawer after seeing Rachel's version that she made for her grandparents at Christmas.  I wanted to do something with Valentine's Day in mind and just loved Shy Valentine Nessa over at Mo Mannings shop and had to have her!  I coloured using PS (though I am seriously considering buying a set of Promarkers - I know, I know, where have I been?!)  The little drawer would be lovely lined and filled with expensive chocolates, or jewellry, what the heck, I'll have both!  The flowers were from in my stash, though I have invested in some paper roses from WOC, just haven't had chance to make something for fun with them yet!  Once again, designing takes over my life - when I'm not ironing that is!  I'm sure the neighbours are sneaking theirs in when I'm not looking, the pile seems to be never ending!  I am determined to sit at my now empty table and create something just for the heck of it, maybe once the kids are in bed I might get to play...until next time, Happy Crafting!

love this little valentine, so cute...my craft room is a mess! I should go clean it but it's more fun crafting then cleaning...LOL!

How true Jen! Cleaning is rather low on my list of priorities, but you have to try sometimes!
