My Little Craft Room

May 6th, 2010

Hello Crafters!!!!

I thought id show you my craft room. Its only small but i like it, because its manageable. (It used to be my husbands office, lol. Which i don’t think he is too happy about! lol).

Storage for Card & Paper For Crafting

A4 Folders For Storing Card And Paper

I try to keep it organised, it helps to know where everything is especially when i have loads of cards to make.

This add on unit for my desk from Ikea, not sure if they still sell it though. Its really handy for storing my crafting stuff, it also has adjustable shelves in the middle which is handy for storing my A4 ring binders on the bottom and ribbon, brads and other stuff on top shelves.

Storage tip
I keep my coloured/ patterned card and paper in A4 ring binders. Arranged in coloured sections, this way i can keep offcuts of the same card or paper together in same sleeves. I never throw anything away because i think its a waste….. and these small bit of paper come in use sometimes! I used to have a small box of offcuts but i found it time-consuming sifting through bits of paper. By keeping the card/paper in the folders helps tremendously especially matching up with pretty pattern paper and ribbons etc. On the spine of the A4 folders i have a few pieces of card/paper swatches so i know straight away whats in each folder!

I only put 1 or 2 sheets of card in the folders and any extra sheets i keep in a box. Its helps to make the folder lighter to hold.

Hello World Wide Web of  People

Testing testing, one two testing . . . . . just making sure it works i am not very computer literate, lol!

So . . . busy at the moment with craft shows. Tommorow we are off to do a show in Leigh, have to get up at 5:00 in the morning – hope its not going to be cold.

Lots of our regular customers who buy from MeiFlower at the shows ask me to show them how to make my card samples. So i thought i would start putting them on a blog where it would be easier for me to share my ideas and thoughts with everybody.
