Almost there!

Have finally sat at my (very) tidy desk! The shelves on top of the desk are done and my storage spaces are almost finished. There's still a little bit to do underneath the work surface - couple of shelves to separate 12" papers from other sizes etc needing fixing into the framework but overall 98% completed and my dearly beloved has worked his socks off!!
And I am one happy bunny!!!! 

Have been very good and stored all my stamps into folders - I took off most of the wood backs and the few that were left with the wooden backs fit neatly now into two drawers. I have longed for some ink rack storage for a while so treated myself to these two - one for distress ink pads and one for Adirondack/Versamark etc. - 
got all my promarkers into cases, my nesties also onto magnetic sheets and into cases, bought a case for all my embossing folders and so it went on!

Here's a pic now of the top of the craftie space (thought I'd take it now before I started making messy!!! LOL)

OH built me two shelves with removable 'drawers' to keep the embossing powders, mica powders and alco inks tidy and accesibile (they'd been stuffed in a jumble in drawers) and am thinking about what's the best storage for the Dewdrop and Versacolor ink pads... perhaps a small metal rack on the wall as I don't own lots will do the trick?

Still got the 'fabric bags' and the large wicker basket on the top shelf to sort and there's a couple of other boxes tucked away out of sight with lace and other bits in that I need to organise into the wicker baskets that are read and waiting underneath the work top - 

but .... I am seriously suffering withdrawal symptoms after being unable to craft for several days so without further ado am going to make a couple of CAS Christmas cards for my own stash... and I have a Wedding Card order to do too..

Hope you're all warm and DRY wherever you are - particularly if you're in our country which is suffering some terrible flooding - thanks for dropping in and am sure dearly beloved would love to hear your comments on his handiwork! xx 


  1. Well done that man, great space. Enjoy. xx Flora

  2. This looks fabulous Viv. I`m really envious.
    Because my craft room is in the loft, the two longest walls are sloping so I`ve got no height. I would love a `proper` room. Tell your OH it`s a job well done :-)
