About Me

Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Clean Craftroom

Good Morning All
I took these pice a cuple of weeks ago when I had completely cleaned and sorted out my craft room after having the window cleaners in to do inside and out.
You can see why I have to move everything for the window cleaners.  It was originally an open veranda and the previous owner had it all glassed in, so gets very, very hot in summer.

I bought the little veg. trolley on wheels a while ago and it is great for pulling upto the side of me and putting stuff I need  at hand.  Like one of the drawers with the colour of paper or card I am using at that time.  It leaves more of my desk space free to actually work on.  I did get to the point where my only workable space was my glass mat, now I'm determined to keep more space free to work and to keep it TIDY.

These are the two book cases behind me where I heep everything, alot is in plastic boxes and nearly all labelled.

And finally, this is my desk and to the left of this is a unit with cupboards where I keep my stamps and inks in one side and punches and odd bits of material in the other.  And on top is my Cut N Boss.
I love being in here now, I was getting to the point where I didn't want to craft as I was getting frustrated with it being so untidy and messy.
As you can see, when I'm sat at my desk I can see the world go by right outside the apartment.

The question is Wendy, can you keep it that way, but how nice to have such a lovely light work space. The veg trolley is a great idea and wold be very useful at my end as well, might have to spent a little time searching the net for something similar.

Wow what a fantastic,tidy craft room :-)

It must feel great to have everything organised and ready to hand now Wendy.. it all looks very neat and tidy! I can certainly empathise with a cluttered room… as mine is a mess… and some days it does put me off crafting! I keep plodding away with the sorting and tidying… progress is slow but I am making some headway at least. One day I will get it tidy and organised!!! Lol
Hope you have a nice evening!
Big hugs, Sue B xx

Looks brilliant, wish I had a window cleaner, when my Hubby retired he sacked the window cleaner, said he would do them himself, well he does, once a blue moon and then they always look worse after he has done them, sigh.

What a fantastic space I'm lucky enough to have a craft room and it is a TOTAL mess! It's also a bit if a dumping ground for other stuff too Everyday I promise myself that I must sort it out I do need more storage/shelves though

Elaine said...

Hi Wendy
Yikes....having sat on our friends balcony on the Costa del Sol, in Spring, with their glass "curtains" closed, I can only imagine how hot that room gets in the height of Summer.
Will take a photo of mine when its tidy..........it may be some time lol!
