My new craft room!

Hello everyone :o)

Thought I'd post a few photos of the new craft room, for anyone who'd like a peek at it... it was harder than I expected getting decent photos of a room though (I'd be a rubbish estate agent, eh?!).





There's a few things still to be finished, and loads still to be moved in, but I can finally craft in it, so I'm happy!

Can anyone recommend a good guillotine?  I really need to replace mine... the blade falls randomly and is going to chop my fingers off one day very soon lol.

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Oh, this looks fab, Lisa - I'm so jealous as I look at my stuff piled up in a corner of the kitchen! I'm needing new guillotine, too as mine doesn't cut straight now. Jennifer McGuire has commented that she loves the Tim Holtz one, but I haven't found anyone who sells it over here yet! xx

WOW!! I'm mega jealous of your beautiful craft room...and your beautiful craft room dog :). I have to share my crafting space with a chest freezer and a tumble drier so it's all pretty cramped. I would love to be able to get units right across at least one wall which would go a long way to solving a lot of my storage problems. You are one very lucky crafter, Lisa. I know you'll have hours of fun in there.

Wow your room looks beautiful Lisa, bright and airy with plenty of room for your stash. A well deserved crafty space after waiting so long for it to be finished. I see Chester has made himself at home too :)

Awwwwwwww now that is not nice Lisa :(.............. down in the mouth is what I really am. I keep buying units to store 'stuff' It's taking over my dining and living rooms. Oh to go back about 3 years and just have something like that in my dining room in an ash finish.
Hope you enjoy making me so miserable :(

ps. I loved my crafter's companion one that cuts 18' card but after 2 years it now 'chews' the edges a little (must disconnect the blade and take it in to be sharpened) have had the Tonic 8' for about a year and it's brilliant, so got the Tonic 12' the other day... fabulous 'crunch' sound when cutting.
pps Hope you have many happy hours of crafting in there,you deserve it :):):)

Amanda said...

Gorgeous room Lisa, I wonder how long it will stay so tidy, if it was mine it would be messy already lol. Hugs, Amanda x

Wow! Wow! Wow! What a fantastic craft room. You've got so much storage and workspace. I'm envious of your card cubby holes, I didn't have room in mine for some. Have a fabulous crafty time in your bit of crafty heaven.
Sorry about deleting the one above, I'm obviously not awake yet. Debra x

Gorgeous new craft room! I am just about to start mine, eek! The best guillotines for me are by Tonic; I have the smaller one for everyday cutting and the A4 one for big cuts. Ive had others for the big one but changed it to Tonic as my blades would wobble too. The best price at the time was on Amazon so have a look as I got it for @ £22 which is amazing for the big one.

This looks lovely especially once you have all your bits in there. I bought a trimmer from Clas Ohlsen and it is the best one ever. I have had it at least two years and haven't replaced the blade yet.

Pollard Carole said...

Craftdee said...

What a a great room, Lisa!! If you're anything like me you THOUGHT you had loads of stuff... then you get a craft room with lots of storage and the accumulating REALLY starts, lol. I'm really just saying that because my craft room doesn't look nice and tidy like yours any more, you may be able to control yourself better!! Chester is gorgeous btw :-) Donna xx

Pauline said...

Wow! What a wonderful room you have there! I love your white and light theme, and your storage solutions have inspired me!
