Wahayy its WOYWW

Well as you can see it's nice and tidy, but not a lot going on, so I thought I would give you a 360 round my craft area, its in the conservatory at the back of the house, when I started crafting I had a magazine rack and everything fitted in there, as you can see things have progressed significantly since then, about 5 years I reckon since the obsession began. 
As you can see I like to be tidy and enjoy tidying things up into their right place, love cruising the local charity shops for shelves and things I can use to store things, and of course I love a good craft sale, the big chest of drawers is full of other things like finance stuff (yeuk) and old sewing stuff, lots of spare material for things I was going to make and never got around to, I was never a natural at sewing, but lo and behold on my 21st birthday (last year . . LOL) I got a sewing machine just like my sister, i was so unimpressed with it, but I have learnt to appreciate it over the years. The drawers have seen better days and one day my OH will get around to realigning the drawers, not holding my breath for that one to happen.The sewing machine is the piccie is a mini one so much quicker and easier to use for crafty stuff, and I love a VW camper van, should have been a surf chick in another life.  The pink cupboard was another charitiy shop find for £2, was a wardrobe for a dolls clothes, needs a shelf and perhaps some grunging up, but I love it, next piccie shows the hatch to the kitchen and my wall of art, video cases have all my unmounted stamps in and are organised in categories, you can never have enough stamps, two drawers full of wood ones and another drawer with Tim H stamps
and finally back to the desk and an old TV stand that holds the things I use a lot, my laptop, my heatgun and the minstrels, hehe.  Hope you enjoyed the 360, follow this link to get to WOYWW so you can go and nosey around more worktops.

Hiya
Thank you for the comment I never actually thought of it as OCD but yep think that about sums it up. I am also not that tidy everywhere else in the home, as never get time to get on top of it due to the crafting.
Love the way you have organised your pens, had to zoom in and have a really good neb. Showed the hubby the tv and said mine is still on the floor in the bedroom (he is an electrician) no excuse for not putting a plug in the top of my cupboard (will show that next week)Love the depth of those draws lucky you.

Hugs Kate xx

Thanks for sharing you space, it looks great, like the mini wardrobe. When you say you started with a magazine rack - yep - kinda gets out of control doesn't it!

This is an amazing craft space. I really love all your storage solutions and containers. Very tidy and well organized, which is half the battle. Happy WOYWW.

Thanks for the fab tour. My OH agreed to me turning out conservatory into my craftroom at the beginning of this year. It's brill but have you been as hot as me this past week? 50 degrees c yesterday after I had been out for a couple of hours and it had been shut up. Yikes, that was hot!

I did enjoy your 360 and qam hugely impressed at how organised you are. That dolly wardrobe takes me back - what do you keep in it? It's been so hot in our conservatory this week that the candles have melted - I presume when it's like tha tyou don't do much craft - hate to think of you suffering for your art!
