WOYWW 425


It's Wednesday, so it's time for WOYWW 425 - please click on the link to find out what it's all about (is there anyone in the crafting world who doesn't know what it is?!?!) and join in the fun.

On my WOYWW last Wednesday I said: 'I hope to return again next week and show some more of my craft room - in fact, I'd like to think that the sorting and labelling will be finished ... but I keep hoping that - lol!.'

Well, I'm pleased to say that quite a lot of progress has been made and I'm able to share quite a lot of photos, although it's still a work in progress ... think it might always be, although I really do like to be organised and long for the day when everything's sorted and labelled. I think I've come to the conclusion that I have too much crafting stuff ... did I actually just say that - lol!! Surely, you can never have too much!

The room that I craft in is really a second bedroom, but there's no way that you could get a bed on here - lol! There's a built in wardrobe - we use the right hand part of it to store our coats, but the left hand side is shelved, so that houses some of my crafting stuff. Because the shelves are deep, I have to put boxes in front of boxes which does mean that I need to remember what's behind. It's been very helpful to have everything out to sort through, although I confess that some of the boxes have gone back without being labelled because I ran out of enthusiasm. My ultimate plan is to draw up some sort of table that shows what's on each shelf and stick into inside the door ... but there are lots of other things to be done first.





And then there are the trolleys that house my really useful boxes - they came with us in the move from our maisonette. I've been through quite a lot of the boxes, sorted and labelled, but there are still some to do. We recently had the shelf put in above some of the trolleys so that I could display some of my wooden stamps and I couldn't resist putting the fairy house in the middle.





The big box on top of the right hand trolley is to house any 'work in progress' (really meaning anything that needs to be put somewhere ... but where?!!

As for my workdesk, you can see that there's only essentials on there atm, including the vital cup of coffee ...  and labels still to be put on the right boxes and the dymo at the ready to create more.

Although it might look organised ... well, it is to a certain extent ... there are still boxes that need to be sorted a bit more and labelled. I think now I need to have a rest from it all and get some stuff out on to the workdesk and make some more cards.

Now I'm off to link this for WOYWW 425 and then have a look at what others have been up to - that might be a bit later today.

  1. Hi Hazel, thank you for sharing your photos. I love your craft room, promise I'm only a little bit jealous. You can never have too much craft stuff though - don't say that out loud! Happy WOYWW, Lyns xx #20

  2. Wow, that looks like commercial premises. Those boxes are so neat and tidy and there's just so many of them! It's easier to keep things tidy when you have somewhere to store them! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa #26

  3. Hi Hazel, I think sorting and tidying are things that we never stop doing- well the sorting, anyway! I love Really Useful Boxes too- I have loads, they are my favourite storage method. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #3 XxX

  4. I have storage envy!! Look at all that neatly sorted stash, it makes me heart sing :-D. Not for me the mountains of craft supplies all piled up randomly, I do love seeing things sorted. I bet you know where everything is now and that saves a whole heap of time when you're looking for something particular. Sorting also reminds you what you have and had forgotten about...or is that just me?!

  9. Oh Hazel like Jan said, I have storage envy, that is an awful lot of storage, and an amazing amout of stuff. With luck in our new house I might have that sort of storage, in my dreams.
    Thanks for dropping by at my page,

  10. You have such a nice large room! I'm sure your sorting will come to an end some day. Well, maybe. Seems mine goes on and on as I clean out old stuff to make room for new. Thanks for the visit and have a great week!

  12. Wow - that's organised! We are both on an organising trip at the moment, it seems! I love all your coloured RUBs - I've just got the plain ones. They make a lovely display! You've got a great room there. Thank you for your visit.

    Happy WOYWW,

  15. Looks very organized to me! Gorgeous colorful carts! My kitchen cupboards are like yours, very deep, so I have everything written on the inside of the doors. It's a great help, as I always forget what's behind! Thanks for sharing, Lindart #33 - but Mr Linky will take you to a page that says my post does not exist - Fake News! click on "home" and it will take you to the post!

  16. Just a late flying visit - to your oh so beautifully organised crafty space! x Jo

  17. A very organised craft room - I think we crafters spend as much time organising and tidying as we do actually crafting. The idea of labelling the inside of the cupboard door would definitely be useful - we did that for all the chemicals in our school science laboratory and it has definitely been a success - we printed off the contents of each shelf in a table, laminated it and stuck it on the inside of the door beside the relevant shelf. Sorry for the late visit this week - internet issues (AGAIN!)

  18. WOW that'a a lot of boxes but all looks very organised and colourful too. Thanks for the visit and sorry it took me so long to reply BJ#21

  19. It certainly does look organised, Hazel! Love the colour co-ordination too. I think the labelling thing is only necessary f its a box with a lid or if its not immediately obvious what the contents are....how's that for allowing you a break!
