My Happy Place | Craft Room Tour

Hi everyone, today I thought I would give you a peek into my craft space and give you a craft room tour.

My Craft Room | Mixed Up Craft

So many of you have asked over the last year to see my craft room and up until now, I’ve decided to keep it private, however, this Thursday my husband and I move to Shanghai to start another adventure so I thought I would make a short video diary to keep as a nice memory to look back on.

For me, it’s not just a craft room but a place where I keep all the things that bring me joy, it’s a museum of things I’ve collected old & new over many many years.

From old family greeting cards to tacky Chinese decorations this room is full of curio’s and my craft stash and I love it. This room really does “Hug” me and I will be sad to see it all taken down but at the same time excited to start it all over again in another room in another city!

I’m very organised and feel you need to be if you have a lot of stuff. I need to be able to see everything and try to display it or store it in clear storage so I never forget what I have.

One of my favourite storage solutions are these clear perspex draws, each one comes with 3 draws and they are perfect for holding all your smaller nik naks, I store my brads, clips, hardware, sequins, buttons, embellishments, wooden veneers, trimmer blades and much much more. I purchased mine in China for 1.50 each! however, I have seen very similar ones onΒ eBay.

Another piece of storage I love is my A4 draws. I purchased 5 from B&Q a couple years ago for 2.00 each I have them stacked up on top of each other and they hold all my A4 papers, acetate, vellum, 6 x 6 & 8 x 8 papers, watercolour paper, laminating pockets, fun foam and lots more, it’s so handy and takes up very little floor space.

I was very lucky to have this built-in wall storage and matching unit which holds my die cutting machines on top and 12 x 12 papers inside.

My other clever storage solution is my ribbon wall, not only is it a quick way to decorate any craft space and inject some colour but also the fact that it takes up no shelf or drawer space.

Below are a few more close up’s of my storage including how I store my stamps & dies.

Have a wonderful week.

  4. Thank you Segovia. It stands for many things, I’ve always “Mixed” things up through out my life, weather in my fashion, my Crafting, Cooking, Boyfriends, Friends, I think you get the idea πŸ™‚ I have never done things the “normal” way so to speak, Mixed Up Craft seemed a good name as it covers so many things for me. x
