Crumbs - these Wednesdays come round quickly!
Firstly a little peek at my slightly OCD storage - it's nice to be able to hide all the Really Useful Boxes as I don't have the luxury of lots of beautiful open shelves with fancy baskets and colourful containers. I had to make the most of what space I knew would be available so opted for this set-up. I'm with Wipso in that I have to be organised otherwise it all becomes a jumble and not so easy to pick/mix/match whatever I might need. So I do 'generally but not always' try to clear stuff away from my desk once I've finished using it.
Without standing on my desk and pressing my back right against the wall it's hard to get much of the row of three floor to ceiling sliding doors in :) When they are all closed it does look very neat and tidy.
This is the left hand side door slid open with my 'can't be without this' trolley (bought from Costco). I've had it for years right back from when I first took over the dining room table for crafting, as a 'prolonged interim measure', so it just had to stay when this room was built - a faithful friend :) The shelves were built just at the correct height so that it can be wheeled in and out if needs be. There will be much weeping and wailing if it ever collapses under the weight of all the card etc. in those drawers! Maybe it's time for a sift through to redistribute some of the stuff...ha, that's the spare space I'm just gonna gloat about already spoken for :(
And this is what's actually 'on my workdesk' right now:
I seem to be happiest wielding a pair of scissors and recently sent for the La Pashe Build-a-blossom set. This is an azalea I'm partway through making. I suspect that these flowers will look their best just left to make their own statement on a very simple embossed background maybe?
I'm off for my weekly nosey at what everyone else is up to! To join in go to Julia's here!
Thank you to everyone who left such lovely comments last week - I'm pretty sure I replied to them all. Much appreciated ladies xx
