Anyway enough of my waffle. I can show you some progress that has been made to my little craft room.
I had an old spice shelf that I have been hanging onto since we moved here 10 years ago. Last year it got moved from the loft and into the craft room but it has sat on the side feeling rather unloved as until the room (and me) were more organised I never really knew what to use it for and where to put it. My darling hubby sanded it all down for me at the weekend and hung it in a little corner of the room by the window for me to start storing some of my mounted stamps. Up until now, most of my stamps were in a filing cabinet, but now I have freed up another 3 drawers to store my A4 paper or card.
Next on the list was lowering the make shift worktop I had just propped up (blush) under the window, it's still not 100% but it has cost us nothing as the worktop and wood were all just laying around in the garage waiting for a home! I wanted to use the space by the window to make the most of the natural light (and to gaze at the trees when I need inspiration!) but we had to work around a boxed in area over the stairs- I have now used that boxed in area to store my Cuttlebug and dies. Still a long way to go and my Cropper Hoppers haven't arrived yet, but progress has definately been made.
With all this going on in my little craft room and sand and a tonne of slate needing to be carried through to the back garden, I haven't found much time to actually craft! But yesterday I had a last minute order so I used this weeks Dottie's World challenge as inspiration.
This week it is a template- to include at least one download and at least one buttonb or brad!
Here is what I ended up with. This little Dottie has got to be one of my favs!!
