Craft room - Ikea Galant range

Hello Friends,

I've been tidying up my craft room and have conjured up the courage to take some photos for you to see where I craft.  I took photo's around the room clockwise....here goes.....

These drawers are pretty well organised, the top drawer is for all my Silhouette Cameo supplies, the next one down is everything Stampin' Up, which can be fitted into a draw, next down is 6 x 6 paper, envelopes and bits I haven't used yet, next down is full of tiny embellishments and the bottom drawer is full of old stuff, punches that don't cut well, extra heat guns and just stuff.....


here is a closer look at the top of that chest of drawers....


This was a built in wardrobe, which my DH kindly refitted completely with shelves last year (bless his cotton socks)......


The shelves, they are really very deep, one of the shelves is full of magazines, 3 piles deep....


This is the new Ikea Galant furniture I had last year, I hadn't organised it very well until yesterday :)!......


I love how I planned this furniture, I planned it to be the perfect height for me to reach my dies and stamps from the glazed shelving unit, with extra storage on top (for the odd giraffe and pics)........


This is a closer look at what I'm calling my cutting station, my trimmer, Cameo and Vagabond do not leave this space......


Here is my A4 Stampin' Up card stock, lots of my unmounted stamp sets are in the white Ikea container on the bottom shelf, next to one of my scrap card keepers........


Moving around to under the window, this is a small Ikea Galant desk, just enough room for my computer, tissues and ancient pencil sharpener......


Had to show you a closer pic of my pencil sharpener.....


Moving around the room to that last wall space, is my huge desk, I'm a lucky girl to have such a big one ;)!  It actually measures 180 cm wide by 90 cm deep.  It is electronic and goes up and down too (actually it isn't really mine, it sort of on long term loan)!  You will see that I have my t.v. in the corner, next to that are two lamps, my daylight one and a torch type one that I can move really close to my work if I wish.  Next to that is another scrap card box (it's an antique, real wood desk tidy, type of thing - I love it!).........

The other end of my desk has pencil pots and one of those fabulous crafting carousels.  You can see the blue card stock on my desk is the 12 x 12 page I'm working on to show my crafting ladies next week, it gives a bit of a comparison on how big my desk actually is!......


Under my desk I have a cupboard, its full of stuff I've made and needs organising, I might do that soon ;) - next to that is our printer - it's huge, but a great place to keep it, well out of the way under my desk!......


As my desk isn't quite big enough, I have a temporary table, one of those t.v. dinner type of tables, always at the side of my desk.  It fills a gap and I keep my big crafting bag on there permanently.  You can see behind it is another temporary hobby table, which I do put up when I run out of crafting space ;)!.....


I hope this inspires you to organise your space.

Now for a little crafting, but I don't want to mess it up!!!!!

Happy crafting and thanks for popping by, leave me a comment, let me know what you think and if you could see any easy improvements I could make.
