My craft room


A few piccies of my re-vamped craft room October 2012

There's always a helping hand close by, this one's called Daisy

Keeping faith with the Liverpool Reds



The main stamp store

And a few more tucked away




Ribbon could be great fun thinks Poppy

The non business end of the room

And this one even folds down to a bed

I am moving in! It looks brilliant, Brenda. When can Eddy start on mine?!

pinky said...

Oh it all looks so fresh and clean and very inviting Brenda. Glad to see there is a bed settee for when I come visit lol. The wallpaper is just beautiful, Eddy did such a great job! I hope you feel inspired to get in there and create now. I'll let you off with the Liverpool stuff though:)

Lynne K said...

Speechless with admiration!

Crafty Kitten said...

Wow Brenda this is fantastic - I'm gonna print these off and show them to hubby!! Bet he doesn't take the hint though - I think you should hire Eddy out - you'd make a fortune!! LOL

Shirley said...

My goodness Brenda your lovely craft room puts mine to shame. You are so lucky.I laughed when I saw the settee that pulls out as a bed. That is for a very serious crafter who needs a bit of rest time in between crafting and blogging lol. A great retreat too.

Jules said...

Morning Brenda

How wonderful!! You certainly are one luck girl!! Well done Eddy!!! Can you send Dave instructions!!

My whole craft pod would probably take up the space your lovely sofa bed would once folded down LOL!!!

Love the beautiful clean colour scheme very much and it is so nice to be able to picture you crafting away in there.

Hope you had a good weekend.

Love Jules xx

Wow Brenda, what a fab place to craft! Hmmm, I wonder how open my wonderful Dad would be to setting up an area like this for me...!! I'm really happy for you that it's all back in place and ready to go, having it up in a heap must've been awful. Poppy and Daisy are adorable, and I love the background on your laptop - so cute! :)

Theresa said...

Amazing space...the cabinets and organization are just wonderful...a perfect space for cratfing. Well done...a dream space!!! Your husband did a fab job!

Ella's Design said...

Oh my word, Brenda, what a fabulous place to craft! I would love to be so organised and tidy, but have already outgrown the units that I put in for my crafting! There's obviously been a lot of thought put in to the layout and you seem to have made use of every nook and cranny...and a sofa bed, too! Talk about craft room envy! Hope you enjoy your new crafty space! Lisa x

Kelly Lloyd said...

walchowDesign said...

Congrats with your new craft room, Brenda! the room looks so fresh and "rejenuvated", spacious and so well organised! Goodness me! You have so many stamps and how I envy you! thanks for sharing! btw! Your helpers are so adorable!

Marianne said...

Your new craft room is looking absolutely wonderful Brenda. I hope you will be able to enjoy many lovely crafting hours there, and I'm sure Daisy and Poppy (surely that name is not a coincidence?) will be more than happy to give you a hand, even when not needed. Your stamp storage looks very impressive (inside and out). Are these ready-made craft or kitchen drawers? We're still planning to turn our third bedroom into a crafting/guest room, but we first have to sort/clear out everything that's been stashed in there after we moved here.

Desire Fourie said...

Oh wow what an amazing craft room. It is so organised and now I can see why your creations are so amazing - as one wouldn't have been able to achieve your creative standard being disorganised. I am sure that couch is only utilised by your 4-legged friends lol.

What a beautiful area to craft in.
All that light and do I spot patio doors ?
So much inspiration when you can see directly into the garden.
Lucky you.
Daisy is beautiful and looks so peaceful laying there :)

mckinkle said...

OMG I am in total crafting awe of you Brenda!

I can house sit whenever you need especially if I get to have cuddles with Poppy and Daisy!

I adore the fresh colour scheme that just continues the garden into your creative space, all of the storage is mind blowing and I have to agree with all of the girls above, you are one lucky gal!

No wonder your crafting is so stunning with such a gorgeous place around you!

Enjoy!

Crafty Humphreys said...

Hi Brenda, I stumbled across your blog whilst looking for a few challenges to enter, not going to lie, the Cricut bundle drew me in, (but I see it's for regulars only so won't waste your time entering!). Anyhooo I had a little peek at your blog, love your work and also noticed your craft room 'peek'. Had to take a look as I'm moving into a bigger craft room in the house so redoing everything and looking for inspiration. LOVE your storage cupboard with all the drawers - just wondered where you got it as I'm struggling for good storage, also are the drawers easy to pull out? Best wishes, Suz xx

Butterfly said...

Brenda , your craft room is so special :) LOVE IT ♥♥♥ really good work and crafts need such a place like this

thx for sharing

CraftyLoops said...

Oh, oh, oh I got so excited when I saw at the top of your blog, that we could have a peek at your craft room, Im such a big kid, lol. As I said in my recent comment, my Craft Room is getting an major overhaul. So I need all the help I can get when it comes to storage ideas. And Im in a wee box room which is about 1/4 of the size of yours or smaller actually. The built in wardrobe is looking like it needs opened up....heehee, you should have seen my hubbys face when I said that! But he actually agreed with me....yippee! Your room is beautiful Brenda. A lovely light and airy space. Beautifully organised too. I need some of your organisational skills. Lee x
