Coming along....

Slowly, slowly the room is coming together, some snippets to show you. One of the things I am most happy about is that my fuse machine now has a permanent place on top of the Alex chest of drawers - I love this machine, with the adapter plates you can cut and emboss all sorts of dies, even wafer thin ones and big steel rule dies. So my Big shot has been retired - after all I don't need two machines that do the same thing....


and the adapter plates, big dies and the Fiskars dies sit nicely in the drawer beneath the machine....


My Kallax units now have drawers or doors...I chose the bright teal colour on a whim, but I am happy with it. The other units hold some paper trays which are perfect for all my cardstock 


To be honest, I find the drawers more useful now that I am beginning to put things away than the cupboards with the doors, I don't have that many tall things to store, so I feel there is more wasted space...I should probably have gone with just a couple of cupboards and had drawers in the other units. Never mind...


and at last my sewing machine has it's own space, all hooked up and ready to go so expect to see a lot more sewing on my cards. I debated about slotting another drawer unit underneath, but thought I would leave it until I see how I get on with the unpacking, if possible I would like to leave the space, so that when the wood floor is eventually laid, I can scoot across on my chair and start sewing - the Fiskarettes design team come up with some beautiful sewing projects, I am even tempted to have a go at some of their projects 


When I am totally sorted I will take a few photos, although it is going to be a while before the window and floor get sorted out, so I will just take a couple of shots in the next few days

Sharing the first card made in the still chaotic room, a simple hexagon patchwork card, made with the Fiskars hexagon punch. 



A facebook friend tagged me with this video after my tales of Ikea visits - watch to the end, I get a mention! It made me laugh......I hope it raises a smile. Mind you, if he is like that all the time, I think that sweet girl will get pretty fed up rather quickly!

  1. I love how your room is coming along. I love Ikea too. Check out stampnstorage.com for paper inserts that fit the Kallax. Oh and glad you liked that video, I thought it was pretty funny too.

  4. Great to see this coming along. When I kitted out my garden studio I bought Ikea cupboards found it helpful to buy and fill really useful boxes which I labelled...they were then stackable to fill the space.Lovely card, I'll have a peep at the video when I get home from work. Enjoy the bank hol x

  6. The room is coming together beautifully Enfys. I'm sure there will be a few tweaks as you go but it is looking great.

  7. Love the 'in progress' photos - thanks for sharing. I'm afraid the guy in the video has my sense of humour- I would have been joining in and it would have been a contest to see who could come up with the corniest statements!

  8. Looking great! You've come a long way. How big is your room? I don't know if my room would be farther along if I had some IKEA furniture. I know my bank acct would be much smaller for sure! You've already made a card, so your moving right along. Hugs, Jess

  12. OMG ... that video is hilarious!!! Looks like your room is really coming along. It's quite a job to create a full craftroom from just a shell, but you're doing an awesome job. Can't wait to see it when it's all done, I know it's going to be spectacular!

  13. Loving your new room Enfys! I use these on my shelves to give more useable space. I got them from Poundstretcher for about £2! I do use baskets that are designed to hang on the edge and below the shelf, turned upside down! http://www.amazon.co.uk/Betterware-Wire-Add-A-Shelf/dp/B0014QLU9Y
