I thought today I’d share with you my ‘re-vamped’ craft nook which is where I create and work and do my blog posts 😉
Its not a new area but I do have a very new Ink Pad Storage unit that my lovely Brother In Law made for me!Â I’ve seen these online for a few years and have often wished I had one and now I do!
How cool is it?? It will hold 60 ink pads, ink refills and Stampin Write Markers. So now I have all my colours in the one place!
Mind you getting this wonderful new unit it meant I had to remove the shelf I already had there and rearrange where I kept things. Now if you are a crafter you will know just what havoc all this rearranging does to ones ‘neatness’Â and if you know me at all you’ll know I dont have that gene – my sister got my share (and some) of that!
- I dont really need 3 Chocolate Chip reinkers!
- I need reinkers for all my ink pads!
It looks pretty sweet hey??Â If you would like to purchase one of these units then please email me for price and postage details – Australia only (sorry) Dimensions are 805mm W, 125mm D and 330mm H.
Hubby did suggest it needs to be painted and when I suggested he was welcome to do that any time he then decided the ink pad shelves wouldnt then slide in and out easily! Typical!!
Now as for my work area I have a corner (nook) of the living room and have an L shaped desk with a hutch. So this is my area to the right…
You can see here that my computer is there and I have my Ribbons,Â Designer Series Papers and cardstock on the shelf above.
They are stored in the Cropper Hopper Vertical Storage. I do have those lying on their sides though so its easy to just stretch and grab whatever cardstock I need and it also comes in handy when I am ordering so I know at a glance what cardstock I’m low on.
I also have my drawers to the right of my computer which house all my scraps and off cuts. I have a drawer for each colour family and then if I need a smaller piece its easy to find.Â When I get to a stage when the drawers are so full they wont close I just make up ‘collage’ bags and give them to customers with their orders and they love it!
I now have all my inks and markers right in front of me and I love it!
My desk sure does look good when its this tidy!!
I am thinkin its time to do some more creating 🙂
