My crafting desk

Hey guys,

I hope you are liking my new look blog and what's so cool is that I got my 1,000th lovely comment on my last post!!! I love reading the comments and am delighted to have 1,000 :)

So today I am sharing my craft desk-my desk is actually a large piece of lovely walnut kitchen counter that was left over when my parents did up their kitchen-my hubby is a carpenter so he had put together their kitchen and dad gave him the left over piece.

It's really nice and in my house all of our doors and wood floors are walnut so it matches perfectly. The desk as we now call it :) is about 7 foot long so you can see in the pic it can fit plenty of my crafty bits and bobs!! I also keep some makes I have received on the desk as inspiration but I also have shelves above the desk (not in pic) where I display more of the lovely things I have gotten in swaps.

I keep all my smash* books and notebooks and most used goodies on the desk for easy usage-like you can see my WASHI tape holder, little jars of embellies etc

My storage area then is a wardrobe in the room-the room is actually meant as a bedroom but with two kids and myself we took it over as a playroom/craftroom. 

If you would like to see more of my crafty space or a video maybe when I finish tidying the storage section-I NEED a trip to ikea :) let me know in the comments,

Sorry I should have posted this closer to valentines but my wifi was acting up! Anyways I have my wifi all sorted and my video is up so you can see how I made this shadow box frame for my swap partner Katya:

I LOVE these shadow box frames from crafty cutting -they are one of top favourite alterables for sure-you can check them out on my version here is the grey board one and you can also get them made from MDF. The cupid and heart are so SWEET and I got those both from another of my top shops for goodies for all occasions. The papers are Amy Tangerine, Die Cuts are by DCWV and the flowers are a mix from my stash....

CardznScrapz layout Challenge

I am off to my friends wedding tomorrow so I needed to make them a card-CardznScrapz are currently running a sketch challenge where you can win a fantastic prize HERE so I thought what better time to join in the fun.

This is the sketch:

So as you can see I just mirrored the layout to the opposite side of the card-the papers and embellishments are by Bo Bunny and I got them at cardznscrapz. Then the lovely lace is from my friend Kerry who got it in Dubai.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year to all my readers,
