Aw, it's What's On Your (NEW) Workdesk Wednesday!! It's been a bit of a rush, a push, a shove, and a squeeeeeze but I'm in my new craft room!! Yayyy!! Here's the old one, with everything waiting to be moved out... Here's hubby John in the room next door after having moved all the bedroom stuff out (don't ask where it is!) he's now laying the new carpet. (a real bargain!)'s the new room (Emma's old bedroom) with my crafty 'stuff' moved in! At first glances it looks the same, (different pictures on the wall) as I've laid it out almost the same way as before (otherwise I'll never find anything!) I've re-painted an old bathroom shelf , which my dad made years ago and put some paints and large glitter pots on it.
Filled up this purple shelf unit with very useful boxes (They're soo useful!) and then added...
this old kitchen top as a nice long desk. This has been in this room before. When Emma first moved out to go to Uni, then ended up in the shed (studio) when she came back!
And is now back in here again... all my ribbon jars are along the window seal... might move them as it's quite sunny in the mornings and I wouldn't want them to fade. If you look you can spy the mouse John threw at me last week!! He's not that scary after all!! (The coloured drawing was done by my youngest daughter Maria (now lives in USA) we found it in the attic along with some of her primary school books. I wonder where she got her artistic flair from??)
And here we are back at the door...Door Stop Bunny just had to get into the picture...oh...and so did John! He made the shelving unit slimmer so it would fit behind the door. And then a little to the right again....
and we're back looking at my usual'd hardly know I'd moved at all!! If you want to see what's going on in my old craft room, pop over to John's Blog later...he's soo chuffed with his 'new desk''ll never guess what he made it out of! So that's what's on my Worktop this week! What's on yours? Pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join in!!!

  11. Love your new room Lyn.Wish I could go mad with mine but it still has to be a guest bedroom from time to time so I have to keep most of my stash in cupboards etc out of sight. Mustn't complain though lots of peeps have to use the dining room table.

  32. A brilliant new space. Now just tell us how many things you found while you were moving that you had "lost" or forgotten all about.

  33. Hi Lyn, Thank you for your visit and kind remarks. If you use the Spray and Shine, just use a very light mist to fix the ink from your printer. I use it with the Aquamarkers and Promarkers and it seems to stop the bleed problem for both.


Thank you so much for your comments! They make my day!!
