The very first card!

Stamped with Kanban peacock and flowers.  Peacock stamped with Black Memento ink, coloured with flex-marker ;Shocking Pink' and tail-feather 'eyes' glittered with cerise pink fine glitter.  The base white card has been stamped with flowers and sprayed with Crafters  Companion glitter spray (silver) and the main card with message has been designed on Serif Digital Craft  Artist and printed onto white card.  

My craft room - FINISHED!!

The 'machine' end.  The electricians have used trunking to neatly hide most of the wires.  I thought I would only fill two of the shelves but no.... I have no room left!  The middle shelf is full of wood mounted rubber stamps.  One of my drawers has all my unmounted rubber stamps.... hundreds of them!

I love my papers shelves.  At last I can select the right colour without getting reams and reams of paper out.

The venetian blinds have added a lovely touch.  They match the wallpaper very well and I can adjust the incoming light really well to create different moods.  The ceiling light is fantastic - it's designed for medical purposes like operating theatres or dentists and is a bright white light so I can true colour match at any time of night or day!

Work in progress

A very busy few weeks.... but now complete!

I have hardly had time to breathe lately and my house has been completely upside down.  Still, it was all very worth it because my craft room is now up and running and I am more than pleased with it.  I have filled every cupboard, drawer and shelf with goodies and still could have done with more storage space!  I have a fabulous carousel in each of the corner cupboards which has made very good use of the space available.  The drawers are fantastic and I have carefully arranged everything - tidy at the moment!  I love my paper shelves and can at last see what colours/textures I have and had a really good sort out whilst I was filling the shelves... I have so many things I had forgotten about and I must admit, there are some things that I have no clue how to use!  The ceiling light is wonderful - it's an Actulite and manufactured with the medical world in mind.  It's a very bright, white light so no matter what time I am crafting, I can see my colours accurately.  Hope you like it :)
