Good evening everybody!
Welcome back to my place, and my first dt post for Deep Ocean challenges in 2013! Im so happy to learn you are still with me ;)
This first challenge is a very special and fun one me thinks, I dont even know if it qualifies into the category of challenge. He, he, he!
We are so exited to give you a little tour of our crafty spaces. I used to have my own little room but as some of yo might know I had to switch rooms for my gear as Ella needed her own space too.
Besides this open space I have to closets I will show you later on. Hop on the tour bus ;)
This photo actually shows all of my workspace. Yes, its kind off small, I know. I bought all the furniture in a swedish very famous furniture store named IKEA. They are all over the world so you might have been in one ;) What I love about them is its so cheap! You end up ruining the desks anyway with glue stains, and tears all over from moving gear around so I don't think its necessary to buy some expensive furniture. I have also change my desks and the rest of the gear twice already and I have only done this for four years...Let me show you some more detailed pictures.
At this little side desk I store my sewing machine and my Silhouette Cameo. I love them both dearly and really believe I couldn't cope without them. As you can see I have also bought a few shelfs at IKEA (called LACK) and Im using them to store all the inspiration I have been lucky enough to receive from all over the world. Most of it is for Ella when she was born but I will hold on to it til she gets big enough to treasure it herself.
This is my big desk, this is where in usually seated. Except for when I´m showing or cutting anything, thats of course when Im placed at the smaller desk ;) I have managed to get hold of the most amazing storage for my dearly loved di pads (and other pads of course) Its called a Porta Ink and I love it soooo much! Its not really very visible here. Its the black little spinner in the upper right corner. Heres a better picture for you:
(The picture is borrowed from the scrapstore I bought it at: Cili in papers)
To store my Copics which I haven't been sure I would keep or not I buy these smart containers from Åhlens in my hometown, Malmoe. I dont know if theres any relevance to it but I have heard you do best if you store markers lying down??? Have no idea if thats right?? Maybe you know better?
I store my small embellies here in small containers that I bought from Panduro Hobby. Such as brads, pearls, pins, flowers soft, snow tex and buttons.
My inspirational shelf! Lots and lots of beauties.
My beloved sewing machine and my cameo
In this beautiful hanger I hang my designs to dry. I got it from a very dear friend for christmas! Thank you so much Debbie Dolphin! You are amazing!!
And now...hold on to something cause now we are going in the closets...
On one shelf I store my dies and my die cutter
Sorry for the bad quality on this one, its so dark here now. :(
So anyways...that was my crafty space...now Im dying to see yours!
If you have a link or is planning to write a post regarding this now and wants to leave some words for me pls include the link and I will run to see you ;)
Loads of hugs
