Well, I finally took some much better photographs of my craft room. It really is finished now apart from some window blinds but I really need to find the right ones so it may be a while before I get those. The light streams in the windows and at times it is difficult to see the computer screen so the blinds are a must, I just haven't seen any I particularly like yet.
I love my little room though, it is great having a (labelled) place for everything and makes tidying up so much easier. I do love organisation so I must admit I really enjoyed all the labelling!
Here are some (well, 20) pictures for you, I know that I love looking at craft room pictures so I though I would do plenty so that nosey people like me are satisfied - isn't it horrible when you see a craft room but can't quite make out what that lovely looking piece of stash is laying on the table?
This is an overview of the room
The television on the wall is a godsend and I love that it is on a swivel and tilt fitting so that I can position it just right and pull it out from the wall.

Little Red Cabinet
I just adore these storage boxes from Ikea.
I keep my tiny ink pads in this sweetie jar which is great for being able to find the one you want quickly and it looks so pretty!
Yep! It's from Ikea :)
I love this little rail above my workspace which holds paints and tools, great to have the stamp cleaner at hands reach.

Creative Memories Layout Frame
I love this layout frame from Creative Memories, I bought this ages ago whilst having a craft room was a distant dream - I am so glad I did, although I think I am going to cut off the ribbon that runs along the front of the frame (for pegs) because I never use it and would rather see my layout.
A fairy watches over me
Buttons in little spice jars
I have finally organised my buttons by colour, it is great. I used a glue dot to adhere a corresponding coloured button to the top of each jar, it just makes it that bit quicker to grab the correct jar.
Mini books in a basket
Paper holders from Muji
The one on the left of the photograph is actually holding a pile of layouts that need to be filed into albums.
Wood mounted stamps
I currently have my acrylic stamps in one of these boxes, the plan is to put them into binders and then keep the binders in the box.
I love the colour of the room it is Dulux's Melon Sorbet, it is exactly the colour I was hoping for. All the furniture is Ikea (surprise, surprise), I'm so happy they started a delivery service as our nearest Ikea is in Bristol, we did have to travel up to buy the boxes, jars etc because they don't deliver all those items but getting the furniture delivered was a big help (but, be warned, there is a £60 delivery charge!)
So, there you have it, my little piece of heaven! I love having a craft room and I can't tell you how thankful I am to my step-dad (who is like a real dad to me) for making this dream room for me (from this) and to Mark for helping Geoff every step of the way and, of course, paying for everything :) I love you both so much xx
