WOYWW - Mini Tour

Thought you might like a more in depth tour of my little craft cupboard this week and when you have finished here take yourself over to Julia at mission control to see more facinating spaces :) I had to take a few different shots as it's difficult to see it all on one photo as the space is limited.
So this is the full cupboard on one wall of my bedroom...there are two full sliding doors which obviously means that I can only work in one half at any one time.

...I can reach over to a certain degree for the odd thing but after that it's slide the doors over!
This side is the inking/stamping area...

...I really had to make the decision to dedicate it to this space as I have had too many near misses with the ink pads falling on my beige carpet in the dining room! Lucky for me someone up there was watching and they all fell butter side up if you get my drift!! LOL
My DIY skills came into play again when I hit on the idea of putting these metal clips under the existing shelving my DH made for me...

...all my ink pads are here and my gel pens and markers...and on top are my mini misters and spray inks......and now I have a tidy place for my ink brushes...

...the darkly inky one at the end is the first one I bought about 3 years ago...just a cheapo shaving brush from a pound shop and I had been cursing not buying a couple more ever since!! Then I went to the NEC last November and YES! I saw this set of "Ink Dusters" from the Inkylicious stand on special offer....well you've just got to!
The cupboard wall on the left has some narrow shelving... houses stuff like Distress Ink refills, various re-inkers, Alcohol inks, Adirondack acrylics, Stickles and glitters.
I've tidied the cork board and on display at the minute are a colour wheel chart, some keys to remind me to think about using them LOL, an antique metal book mark/paper clip that has the most gorgeous sort of green man image,
(I love green men....did I hear someone say beam me up?!!! HOL)
and of course my T!m photo with my ticket attached for the big event in only 22 days time...eeek!

Well this is getting to be a bit long winded so I'll wrap it up there and show you the other side next week! :)
Thanks for looking and don't forget to wizz over to WOYWW to see a whole load more.

  3. Great idea with the metal clips Sioux. Your workspace is looking fabulous. 22 days is that all. WOW! Exciting stuff. :)

  4. Wow! that is a really brilliant workspace. I love the way everything has it's own space AND is visible as well as being just a hand reach away. No wonder you produce fab things with that plus your amazing talent.

  5. Lovely tour around your cupboard - craft space! I find it very organised - I think that more space you have the less you are organised! (thats me - always a mess)
    What do you use those big brushes for??

    Have a great WOYWW,
