Where the magic happens.
Its a palace of peace and creativity.
Light and imagination.
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
Behind me in an old school cupboard are the embelishment drawers:
you name it, its in here, ready to be stuck on a project and altered or just admired for its beauty
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.
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.
All I need now is an excuse to start cutting, spraying, tearing and gluing to make another unique gift for someone.
