Craft Palace

Where the magic happens.

 

Its a palace of peace and creativity.

Light and imagination.

My craft place has extra height and a very large arched window letting in plenty of natural daylight.

 

Perfect for colour work, photography and beautifully warm when the sun is out.

Behind the door I keep all those odd bits such as empty cereal packets which will be mailing boxes, drawers of buttons and spray paints displayed on an antique pine bookshelf.

 

The drawer unit is the perfect height for guillotining though I would prefer it backed by more shelving.

 

You can’t have too many shelves and drawers in a craft room

Kept to hand in the metal filing drawers under the work table are all the useful glues and stamps i use often.

 

The distress ink pads are kept to hand on the work table.

Behind me in an old school cupboard are the embelishment drawers:

  • Paper flowers arranged by colour
  • metal and wood embelishments
  • old costume jewellery
  • favourite beads
  • guilding flakes
  • glitter and mica powders
  • butterflies
  • gems
  • alphabet letters
  • 12x12 paper pads

you name it, its in here, ready to be stuck on a project and altered or just admired for its beauty

Paper

 

You can’t do paper crafts without paper.

I have 18 drawers full of loose paper, organised by colour.

I keep every scrap over an inch square because you never know when you may need a little bit of paper.

On top of those drawers I keep the A3 paper, nice and flat.

 

Pads of patterened and plain paper are kept in the cupboard or in the bookshelf

The metal office drawers contain all my tools for cutting; punching and all my dies, various circle cutters et al.

Pretty boxes

I have the stacking set of 3 very pretty boxes to contain my ribbon, lace and fibres.

They are full to the brim each one, mostly because I love looking at the intricate lace designs and stroking the fibre lengths, delighting in the variety of colours and texture to choose from to add interest to my projects, tinged with the reluctance to use them because they are so precious.

 

My treasures

All I need now is an excuse to start cutting, spraying, tearing and gluing to make another unique gift for someone.
