Where I create.


I did another make over of my craft space, it’s nice and tidy again, ready to be messed up again…and…I found some misplaced supplies 😉

On the right is my favorite supplies on a lazy Susan and on my left are other supplies in a three tiered wire-rack on a Lazy Suzan.

You can see here how it looked before, the wooden Ikea boxes and drawers were pretty, but not very practical, as they were difficult to open while working.

In the winter I work upstairs in our home office, so that I have more natural light, it is warmer than My Craft-room, which is in the basement and I am closer to my family. I repurposed an Ikea bookcase that we had for my work-space. We have had the bookcase a few years now, so I don’t think Ikea sells them anymore.

I do Art Journaling, Bead-work, Bookmarks, Cards, Scrapbooking, Tags, Mixed Media, Steam-punk, etc.


I store Stickles, Ranger Distress inks, glitter-glue, etc. in Vanity Organizers for lipstick and nail polish. I store them upside down, they fit better and it helps keep the nozzles clear.

Mini diluted misters.


On the Lazy Susan is a pencil sharpener, water bottle, paint brushes, scissors, pens, coloring pencils, pencils, rulers, disposable cups, etc. The wire baskets are from Ikea and Dollar-stores.

This was a Thrift-store find.
A 3 tiered wire rack in a tray on a Lazy Susan,
which holds small supplies tools, etc.

The wire baskets are from Ikea and Dollar-stores.
The top-tier holds Emory boards (which I use for sanding painted surfaces
and distressing), small scissors, etc.
Center is sticky notes, (used for masking) erasers and photo-corners.
Bottom tier holds Adhesive, eye-shadow applicators, etc.
In the tray at the bottom are my punches.

On my left is a Råskog cart on the right is a small table with glass sheets to protect my work in progress.

    So ‘n georganiseerde wrkplek is ‘n groot plesier, maar myne bly nie lank so nie.

  2. Jy stel my bloot aan ‘n vreemde wereld 🙂 . My kreatiwiteit is soos Hester beperk tot my denke maar ook die georganiseerdheid van hierdie kreatiewe wereld van jou is absoluut merkwaardig Linda

    I wouldn’t think that storing the paint upside down would help keep the nozzles clear. Interesting. I am envious of your craft space. I am usually crafting on my dining room table and that gets tiring (having all the stuff out).
