It's been an absolute age since I last joined in with
Julia's 'What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday' -
desks-around-the-world link up so I thought today's the day!
This was actually what my desk looked like yesterday -
I was working on an old canvas (revamping it) which
had altered jigsaw pieces on. If you want to see the
finished article it's in the post below this one.
Last weekend I had a change around in my craft room.
This followed a trip to Ikea on Valentine's day
(such a romantic my husband!).
We bought a large drawer unit and a trolley
(who needs chocolate and roses anyway).
This is what under my desk looked like before -
I had accumulated a collection of boxes, baskets,
metal trays and the like all which had an assortment
of craft items in (all essential of course!)
Once that was all pulled out and the new white
drawer unit put in this is what it looked like.
I suppose it was a bit optimistic of me thinking I could
fit everything in the new unit, but I didn't do too bad.
The other end of the room used to look like this
My Big Shot die cut machine was kept on the nest of tables
and the dies stored high up on the shelves - so every time
I needed one I had to get the steps out.
Bring in the trolley!
I'm so glad my husband suggested I get the blue one
instead of the dark grey I had in mind.
The Big Shot is in the bottom tray, embossing folders
in the middle and Bigz dies in the top.
Now I can see them at a glance without having to climb.
As it's on castors it's easy to move too.
I still have some on the shelves but the ones I use
the most and now to hand.
I thought I was done when I took this photo, but then
had a further tidy up of the first shelf!
The amount of craft stuff I have is quite alarming really.
At least having sorted it out I know exactly what I have
and maybe I'll use it now .... then again .... maybe not -
but at least I have somewhere nice to store it anyway!
Sorry if I've bored you and thank you if you've made it
to the end. If you leave me a comment, I'll come and
visit you (whether you're a WOYWWer or not).
Now to make some mess!
