Junk/Craft Room

I live in your standard 3 bed semi. It isn’t very big but it’s fine for our needs (there are only 3 of us).
I’m lucky enough that hubby let me have the spare room for my craft room. I’ve crafted for yrs but i can’t actually remember when it was. I think it must have been after my son was born so maybe 12 or so years. I predominantly scrapbook but also make cards and some other arty stuff which i’m sure i’ll share more of at some point. Here’s a few things i have made…..

Anyway, back to what i was talking about……my craft room. Since starting the kitchen, well actually probably since before Christmas, i haven’t crafted at all. I lost my Dad in November and haven’t had the inclination to do anything, and since my craft room became a storage/dump it/throw everything in there cause you don’t use it room it’s literally been a dump! Here, i mean take a look, this was my room this morning, i actually feel quite embarrassed just showing you!

Yesterday i bought a new scrapbook album from Hobbycraft and i’m determined to document our Florida photos from the last few years. So i set to work making it cosy again and it’s done! I’ve moved things, thrown things away that needed throwing away years ago, dusted and hoovered and it feels so much better. I need to sort out my cubed storage as there is stuff in there i’ve not used for years but it’s certainly ready for me to get crafting again and i can’t wait.

Here’s to actually doing something productive, although with it coming up to the kids school holidays who knows if i’ll actually find the time!

Happy Tuesday!
