It's been a funny old week - I seriously think my litle car must be in love with someone at our local dealership - three trips there this past week, plus an overnight stay! I think she's all better now, so fingers crossed.
This is what we've been up to here - Mr Fixit doing the drilling and myself directing operations and then me playing. My craft room is very small compared to many, so I keep lots of stuff neatly tidied away in Really Useful Boxes behind sliding doors. But, I found that staring at a blank piece of wall to one side of my corner desk was uninspirational to say the least. Mr Fixit wasn't happy about my original idea of shelving - and in any case I couldn't reach it without kneeling on the desk if it went too far along (that's how little space I had to play with). This is the solution - and I'm so easily pleased that I just love the compromise :)
I had such fun digging my favourite and most used bits out of their boxes. Martha Stewart punches of course plus other punches. Then a little selection of wooden stamps - these are the ones I'm using a bit right now and I'll ring the changes for example at Christmas time (probably should be starting on Christmas cards now really!?) and a few bottle of glimmer and shimmer mist. The bottom shelf was originally going to hold all of my Stickles bottles (got a load of Tim Holtz Distress ones this week and they're gorgeous). When Mr Fixit saw them he remarked that it looked a bit like a spice rack though so they have been relocated apart from a couple of plain glittery ones. I had to laugh though 'cos this IS a spice rack in any case :)) Bought from eBay here and really well made - just great for anyone with limited space or even a spare piece of wall in amongst lots of other display shelving. So hopefully no fears about the wall falling down which keeps Mr Fixit happy - plus I have something more inspiring than a blank wall to look at.
Right, I'm off for a good old nose at what everyone else is up to - join me at Julia's here to see what's going on :)
