Not amused.

The aforementtioned desk i found from the Range, is on its way to being returned,  I am a good flat pack builder but thus was just shockingly poor!

The surface was starting to come away from the corky inside bit as i had just begun to build, as i tried to progress it was just getting worse so i have dismantled and now returned it.

Back to square one. Still need to move stuff into the craft room, and desk hunt again, hmmmm

When shall the crafting begin!!!

The spring craft room clean has begun

I now have a 3 drawer chest of drawers and a 4 drawer mesh unit to use as craft storage!

I have found this desk i will be getting and building soon!

Will start moving craft stuff into the craft room to be tomorrow!

Crafty Shopping list:

  • the above desk
  • a chair 
  • a3 folder for the years gone by birthday cards i have received and want to keep (non homemade - the handmade ones will go back on the wall after i have decorated!) found also from the range here. also on offer too! bonus!
will probably need a lot more storage ideas when putting the craft stuff away in the room.

hopefully when the craft room is sorted i will be crafting more as i wont have to keep tidying up after each crafty session!

do you have any storage you cant live without and that every crafter should have? let me know!

On a mission.

I have been and still am looking for furniture and storage to turn a room into a craft room!

I have been looking on freecycle and the like for a table and chairs and shelving units and other storage for a while now without any luck.

This next week I am determined to have made a start. I did at one point use the room as a craft room, then mum wanted it so got rid of the table and now she doesn't and i'm table less.

I do have a chest of drawers I need to free up and in time have everything at easy access/on display!

Car boots would be a good place to look but I don't have any transport!

At the moment the majority of my craft stuff is downstairs on a book case which I want free from craft stuff for more books! 

Craft Room shopping list:

  • Shelfing unit/Bookcase(s)
  • Storage Boxes
  • Table/Desk and Chair

Next weeks plans are to look around for the above and decorate the craft room to be!

I need to craft more .... and blog more

I have a birthday card to make for one of my friends for the weekend but I don't know where my crafty bug has gone, i haven't even used the Keep Calm stamps i bought at the craft show last month or than stamping some images up! .

might use them on the birthday card!

i have been browsing challenge blogs and got waylaid by MelJen Designs after seeing this digi image on an entrants card!(entry 27) i have bought 3 of their penguin stamps!!!

you know how much i love penguins!

It has also been a while since i won a prize via my crafts so i need to change this!

on another note i have been designing posters to sell as PDF  files for customers to print and/or get made into canvases! site is in the making!

hope everyone is well and all reading could send me a lil of their crafty bug to motivate me!!

I have also changed the design and theme of my blog, looking funkier than ever i say!!

ALSO: if you see this and i'm NOT following you but you are me, comment me your link and i will get right on it! clicking on followers and finding blogs that way is a right malarky!!
