There is not much on my desk this morning apart from the Play Date Cafe challenge, not done much since then, well apart from purchase a couple of things that is LOL.
So this week I thought I would show you my cupboards that are below eye level, oh and my purchases of course. I've decided I'm becoming a little obsessed with storage at the moment, perhaps its all the blog hopping I'm doing to view everyone's desks, they are fantastic and some of you are so organised with products being colour co-ordinated etc, now that is very efficient.
This is to the right of my workdesk, as you can see the obsession with storage is very clear. I will show you my new basked which is on top of the cupboards in more detail shortly.
The basket that has items piled ontop of it is all the items I have been using for challenges and have not yet cleared away, job for tonight me thinks, or maybe I'll just start on the next thing and begin a new pile.
After viewing other desks last week I'm beginning to wonder whether I should sort all my draws out and label them so I know what's in there rather than rummaging through everytime I need something. Mind you I do enjoy rummaging and finding something I thought I never had.....
Housed in this cupboard is my paints which I moved from a cupboard above my head, I thought it was about time I sorted and disposed of any I have never used and in some cases had dried up.
Now my paints, tintZ inks, Gesso, UTEE, embossing trays, and non stick sheets are all in easy access, rather than spending half an hour every time trying to find the right colour medium to use when I want to start a project, well thats the idea.
As I write I am still thinking I should apply this mentality to the rest of my cupboards, problem is there are not enough hours in the day to sort all my stash.
This is the cupboard next to the paints where I store most of my inkpads, ones that I do not use frequently (I seem to use my Distress Inks most of the time at the moment).
I also store, pens, water colour pencils and buttons in this cupboard. These are the only two cupboards at the moment where I can actually say I know what is in there. Oh and to the left you can see my sponges piled high, these are make-up sponges that I purchased from a chemist a while ago and they are well used.
Now to my purchases, I found this basket in Dunelm Mill and though it was ideal to house my alcohol inks, silicone glue, mini canvases and other small bits and bobs that I need to hand. I love it and it was so cheap which makes it even better. Think this basket would also be ideal for buttons etc. Shame I don't have more space in my craft room, I would buy another one of these if I had LOL.
My last purchase this week was these letters ART, I absolutely love them and thought would look great in my crafting space. Hope you all have a great Wednesday, until next time..... Tracy x x
