Welcome to my Craft Room!

**Picture Heavy Post**

OK so this post has been a LONG time coming…. the craft room officially 'opened' back in Janurary, the 14th to be precise - I only know that as it was my mums Birthday!! I have ALWAYS wanted to join in with the WOYWW posts and share my room - but since having my own little paradise I have always distracted myself - too much to do - and so today…. well today I'm going to do my best to share with you my little world! 

So yes I have the most AMAZING sized desk in the world!  Its an office desk and was a steal off e-bay at £20 (and the nice man put it together for me!)  I have to say looking back at this the room looks HUGE and empty! - but crafting isn't about emptiness!!!

As the day went on (January 14th) more and more and more went in…. yes it seemed never ending - I mean Im sure I don't have this much stash - yes and there was more…. and more!

A certain little cat ensured her presence on the happenings!  even if it did mean knocking stuff off my window ledge! - Yes you may know how much I LOVE Orchids too - I have 3 in the room now!! 

And so on 'opening day' who better to take the seat than Miss N - Yes she decided to try to 'help' - I think it was more try to see what stash mummy has that I can play with - but she is just so adorable when in the mood!! 

Now you can't have a craft room without lots of storage - now I'm kind of limited in my room and so after a trip to B&Q I have some 'custom size' shelves on the wall - they are about 1m wide.  The top shelves are deeper than the bottom ones and I now have another shelf on the bottom! Well done to Mr B for putting them up without too many cracks in the plaster! 

Then the shelves got filled…. and once again more 'neglected' stash was found! 

The shelves look pretty tidy there - they are nothing like that now! its move 10 things to get to what you want!  Anyway I needed more storage - and so a trip to Ikea was in order, and I purchased some of the *kitchen bars* that I have seen many people talk about!  BUT it meant that I had to clear the desk for Mr B to put them up! ohhh and get him a drink while he was working :)

And so here is my desk in a *clean* state - yes that clean and tidy….. 

well in comparison to now!!! 

So I suppose I hope today marks a point at when I will start to join in with WOYWW - Here is my desk today…. yes and that mess was creating one card…. I think I may have issues or maybe obsessions!! I have found that I have become used to my space in there - I shut myself off from everything other then creativity!!

And yes since January I think everything has been moved at least once!! I now have some hooks from Ikea that I hang my dies on - I can never see the floor for more than five seconds when I'm in there on my own! Its my own little paradise and I LOVE it! So as of next week I *hope* to do my first WOYWW post as this week I have just jabbered loads! 

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon
