Craft room

Apart from the bit of organizing i had done here. The craft room had pretty much been left and had become a bit of a junk room. Now the boys are back at school and i haven't got any fairs coming up for a while, i thought i should probably use the next 5 weeks to tackle it and other rooms i want to sort.

I started off tidying up my jumble of fabrics. These are kept in drawers in the dining room. My craft room is tiny, so there is no space for these:

The rest are kept in this pretty basket:

On to the craft room itself: This is how it looked on Tuesday morning:

By the end of the day it was much clearer and the shelves are now tidy. I have also completely re organised my writing desk and drawers in here too:

I can actually get to this desk now!!!!

Thursday morning i sorted out buttons and ribbons:

And sharpened pencils, organised the pens, scissors etc:

My label boxes - new, homemade and ones from things i have bought that i like to re cycle:

Odds and sods drawer:

Little bags, hearts and my handmade crafting pinny:

I added some extra piccies to the wall that make me smile:

My mum bought me this lovely new sewing box:

Another lovely tag to re use:

They is lots still to do, but i am getting there:


Lovely things:

- Eating the yummiest chocolate chunk shortbread with my eldest.
- Instagram - obsessed!!!!!!! Join me there at LissyLou123
- Watching The only way is Marbs (loved it!!!) whilst packing up orders.

Congrats on tackling it all, it can get to the point where you open the door and then just shut it again and walk away. It looks like a right little treasure trove, I could spend hours just mooching though all your lovely fabric and buttons. x

Hello LissyLou

That look soo tidy to see all that fabric. What sewing machine do you use Lissy? I want to get myself one but I have no idea at all which one. I haven't sewn since school ...yikes!!!
I've been looking at an Alfa but wonder if it'll be too difficult for me

your craft room may have needed a little organising but who's rooms don't from time to time. But what an amazing craft room you have - fabulous!
