Morning lovely crafters and dear WOYWW friends. Is it really Wednesday again? I can't believe it's a week since I last posted. Hopefully, now we are back to normal I might manage to get more crafting done.
I am very proud to give you a tour of my work space this morning. I spent over two days sorting and re organising last week and DH put up some new storage for my punches as the shelf they were on had started to bow.
I have even started some card making. I found a pile of old cards I'd made years ago that looked really amateurish but by taking them apart and re doing them they are now presentable, a bit of upcycling!!
Here's a view of the other end of the room. I added a lovely peg bag made for me by Lunch Lady Jan to the door storage and it now has my paper flowers in along with a spare heat gun.
And lastly, the new table that sits where the old chair was. At last I have room to have my 12x12 guillotine permanently out so that I can use it. Before it sat on a shelf and it was such a job to get out I tended to manage without it. The table is hollow and the lid lifts off so more storage!!!!
While you are nosing around my tidy room if you happen to spot my new Pebeo Prisme paints can you shout out. I've put them somewhere and now can't find them and I have a vase waiting to be painted. I must have wasted a good hour today hunting for them. Typical, when the room was untidy I knew where everything was!!
If you want to share your workspace with us, then pop over to see our lovely Desk Headmistress, Julia, HERE.
Just before I go I thought I'd share the first 12 x 12 layout DD has completed. We had a visit to a local craft shop last weekend to see what was in the sale and she fell in love with this Bo Bunny paper. I was really surprised as it's quite a grown up choice for an 11 year old. Anyway, she bought it and when we got home she picked out the photos she wanted to use, set it out, picked the title and arranged the journalling and I just assisted with suggestions of what else she could use and helped cut the paper with a craft knife. We had been watching the very inspiring Mel Heaton scrapping on Create and Craft over the holidays & DD had obviously been taking it all in as she repeated several things Mel had said about picking out the right colour to mat the photos and making sure you journalled properly. I think Mel would have been chuffed.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your Wednesday and I'm on my way to have a look at what you are all up too.
EDIT Just popped back to let you know I've found those pesky paints hiding at the back of that bookcase!!!!!
