Craft Room reveal

Over at Crafting with Dragonflies Hilde challenged us to reveal our craft space. So here goes for what it's worth.
 Not got a lot but I manage. You could say I'm lucky that I do have a separate craft room but guess what I rarely use it. Why? Well in the Summer it gets extremely hot. There's no Air Con and fans just blow crafty stuff all over the place. In the Winter it is freezing!! Can't wear gloves to craft now can we. So I prefer being at my desk in the main house with the PC and I nip in and out for tools and goodies as and when. Keeps me fit you could say. I do tidy everything away on the desk at the end of the day but it's a mess during the creative process.

Craft Room

The blue boxes have things like templates, punches, large flowers etc.
 The see through boxes have smaller flowers, wire, some ribbons, bows etc....all your small fiddley stuff. The jars hold buttons..... colour coded.

You can see two boxes of 'sayings'/small tags here too, flower soft and a cutter.

Tissue paper and ribbon bows and plastic wallets are in the drawers. The blue box holds my card stock and the white box fancy/glitter/mirri card. Circle cutter is on top.
On top of the spare freezer I have baskets with more jars of buttons and sequins. Small blue boxes as before.
This is my desk that I should work at but don't!! To the right are files with colour co ordinated scrap papers in.. Large hole punch, box of small embossing tools, circle cutter and small non stick mat. My stamps and inks are in the brown box and along top of desk. The heat gun and notebooks to alter are there too. On the left I've a box of jewellery making tools and findings and some beads that my daughter donated to me when she gave up jewellery making....thank you Debbie.

Top drawer of desk holds toppers and ATC's. 2nd drawer bright coloured ribbons. 3rd drawer pastel ribbon. Bottom drawer ready made tags and die cuts.

On another wall I have a shelf unit which has large purple boxes storing DP and one of these has Xmas stuff in it. You can see staplers here too and the tin behind contains sand and small sea shells.

Boxes with a wide variety of envelopes and boxes half made up. More Xmas stuff on top shelf.

This is where I have my paints and brushes stored and decoupage and more DP are in the blue boxes.

Messy space
This is my messy space. PC, printer, card, paper, CD's are here. Very untidy!!

I'm outside too in the Spring and Summer
My work area outside..... if it's not too windy.

And if I want a view of the pool I just move my craft stuff around to other side of table.

I have my craft group tool box in the boot of my car more or less permanently....then I'm always good to go each week to my craft group.
So that's it. Not a lot but then there's not a lot of craft goodies to buy here!!

Pop over to Crafting with Dragonflies  to see what my teamies have to show with their reveals.......way more than me. You'll be amazed....well I was!!
