My new craft room...part solutions

Today a bit of an 'upclose' look at my storage solutions, what works best for me in my smaller space.
Number one is drawers, the ones that are designed for scrapbookers, I am sure everyone has them, because they are so practical. They are big enough to fit the 30cm x 30cm paper in and shallow enough so nothing gets buried, never to be seen again!

I find my guillotine is the tool I use the most and you might be able to see my  'Stampin up" stamp and scrub beside it, my new favourite as it allows me to clean and dry my stamps as I use them...thanks Rachel!

My next most used storage is little divided craft boxes, they are right in front of me all sorted into similar groups...this is a box of cabochons ready to be made into some lovely rings and earrings 
heavy plant pots work really well for pencils, scissors and other tools

I find these book boxes work well for my stamps,inks and embossing powders
Old moccona jars are great for storing beads, buttons, cottons and all sorts of things

I left the best for last, I love this vintage sewing machine desk, it is on wheels which is handy and my sewing machine is always at the ready!
I hope you have enjoyed a look at my craft room, I always love to have a peek into people's craft rooms, so please share links to your blog if you like :)

My New Craft Room...part one

As promised, some pics of my new, smaller, craft room. I am still surrounded by things that inspire me,  it is a little bit more squished up but it is more organised, which is a good thing !

All my goodies within reach at my desk

A storage shelf for some of  my finished products, stamping stuff, books and beads
inspiring vintage treasures mixed in with some unfinished projects

computer and printer...essential tools!

not so much a mood board as lovely things and mementos that make me happy
Keep an eye out next time for a closer look at some of my storage solutions

My Craft Room

The lovely Simone from Beach Vintage did a post on my craft room this time last year (follow this link to see ) I lived in a much bigger house then and had the room to spread out.

I am always interested in craft rooms, and how crafty people store all the bits and bobs that tend to collect. I have been inspired this week by Cathy from the Daily Marker who did a little feature a while ago on her craft room and her various storage techniques here is a link to her first post   A craft room to be admired !         
Watch my blog for some pics of my new, much smaller :( craft room, I will show you some storage solutions I have come up with to try and fit more in!
