Back in November I met a lovely circle of Crafters who were linked by two common things... crafting and blogging. I had one thing in common.. I love to craft. I enjoyed the meet up so much that I thought, why not give it a go and try blogging (again).
I've not had a blog since the days of live journal.. and that has to be about 20 years ago, so please bear with me!
I thought that I would use today's post as an introduction to my Workdesk as it is usually tidy... and is unlikely to look like this again for a long time! Welcome to my space.
|Welcome to my Craft Room|
There... see... it is almost completely naked... this makes me feel both proud (it is a beautiful space after all) and sad (beautiful spaces inspire messy inky playtime which I have not really had mojo for in the last few months).
In this first photo, you can see my love of Iron Maiden, and some random mittens.. the little container with all the lids has seed beads in it.. and the rose on the door handle is one I dried a very long time ago in memory of my Dad who passed away 3rd January 2003. This space is actually used to hold my larger card blanks and envelopes.
|Bits & Bobs|
In this photo, you can see the shelves which hold my papers and card sheets.. you can also see the start of my work space which has a Hard Rock Café bag.. which is filled with the swag from my recent holiday in San Francisco. Also on the side are paint brushes, my inks, drawers with my stencils and texture pastes..
This is the other side of my workspace.. smaller card blanks, gel pens, glitter watercolours, a spring wreath I made.. and even a couple of paper craft magazines which I bought for the cute stamps hehe. If you look real close, all the way at the back, you will see a photo of my best friend and I 'murdering' each other for a photo taken at the London Catacombs lol.. it cracks me up every time I see it :)

Lastly.. this is my actual workdesk.. well.. at the moment it is home to an orchid my directors at work gave me for Christmas as thanks for the past year. I need to have a tidy up to find it a permanent place.. as the windowsill is full of candles which I love burning.. and it's a bit too cold for it to sit on the windowsill at the moment. In the background you can see some things I made at an Inky Workshop.. the first time I learned about making backgrounds.

Hopefully this little blog and overly tidy workspace will help me ease back into inky fingers and creative fun. Here's hoping anyway!
Happy 2017 to you all... thank you for visiting x
