Craft Space

Although we moved into our little flat over six months ago, we've still got plenty of decorating and sprucing and organizing and beautifying to do. When we first arrived, my crafty area was a designated corner of the lounge, but when The Boy went from wobbling across the lounge to scaling chairs and sofas, I decided that it might be time for a little change.

And so, the Nearly-Husband kindly put up some shelves in our extra-large hallway, and I turned this into my little creative space. For a while, things were shoved in boxes, and slowly, piles of stuff began to appear on my desk (which will hopefully be replaced with some sort of retro table very soon!) Earlier this week, I decided that the piles of stuff were simply out of control, and something had to be done.

The floral bag on the chair (a Cath Kidston freebie, courtesy of Easy Living magazine!) was actually full of wool, which is why the pink basket looks much fuller in the 'after' picture. A place for everything, and everything in it's place!

It was a fairly quick project, as most of the pictures had been put up, the notice board had been made (that's another post entirely!), and the storage boxes were simply waiting to be filled. It was just a case of putting things in their final homes. And so, without further ado, I present.... my Creative Space. In an ideal world, it's an entire spare room, and the shelves run the length of the walls. But for now, it's a corner in an oversize hall - they do say the best things come in small packages...


  1. Your space is perfect and filled with lots of crafty items. Can't wait to see your creatons.

  2. It is my dream to have a craft room! Your creative space is fab. I look forward to being jealous of it on Friday!

  3. Oooh organisation, I love it! I wish my craft corner looked like yours! Also, love the new blog header, stunning. I'm amazed you have time to organise amidst all your wedding plans, or is it creative avoidance?!!

  4. Thanks Glor, hopefully I'll finish one of my many projects soon!

    Nik, I know exactly what fabrics I have there... I'll be keeping one beady eye on your wandering little hands, ha!

    Fay, that may possibly be the case... I'm also working on my first crochet commission! I'm more looking forward to our time in Brighton after the wedding!
