Where Bloggers Create

Karen from My Desert Cottage is having a where bloggers create party today, I thought that I would join in on the fun.



My Craft room is what use to be our formal dinning room, we found that when we put on a large rumpus room out the back of the house a couple of years ago that we didn't use the formal lounge room anymore. So a couple of months ago I decided to convert the room into an area where I could do all my crafting. I built (yes I did) a L shaped wall (with the help of cheap labour ie my 14 year old son). The purpose of the wall is so that I could have all my bone china displayed in it's own little area. Now building the wall is the easy bit the hard bit is the plastering, not one of my favourite things to do, anyway here is some photos of the new craft room, although it is not quite finished yet, still a bit more painting and plastering yet to go but you get the idea.




Lots of glitter and bling in this craft room.




I like to have lots of pretty girly things around me when I am creating.




Jars of bits and pieces, I must get around to taking all of the labels off one day, but with all the jars that I have it is a big job.






Paints and ribbon storage







The spot above my desk, I am forever changing what I have on display.






Thank you for stopping by and having a look around my craft room I hope that you enjoyed it.

Cheers,

Hi Linda,

I can't believe I haven't visited you in so long. Love your blog background makeover. Your art space is lovely. mine is a complete disaster right now after a weekend of mosaic madness. I love what you look up on...I look up to the clock you made me in our parasol swap. Still one one of my very favorite things.
XOXO
