WOYWW 100

Morning everyone, and Happy Star Wars day! - May the 4th be with you!!!

Well there's lots going on in my craft room this week!  I have gone from this:


to this:

and then after a sleepless night worrying about all the weight and whether it was going to go crashing through my ceiling or not, to this:

Have moved the heavier weighted stuff such as paints, sizzix dies and lots of the childrens school stuff and some holiday memoribilia downstairs (managed to fit those original white drawers into two old wardrobes we have in a spare room after a big sort out) so I have slept peacefully since!

For some reason I am still scrapping on my dining room table at the moment though probably because the children have been off school for the holidays - hoping to get round to a few of you today and tomorrow but the children are off yet again tomorrow for voting so it depends upon whether I take them out for the day or not!

If you want to join in the fun and show off your workspace to the world pop over to Julias for this fun and addictive once a week excitement!

Thanks for looking :)

Oh wow, that's really neat and pretty.

I completely understand your worry. I'd once had a bookcase collapse in my room while I was asleep. I woke up to the crash, groaned to see that all my books were on the floor, rolled over and went back to sleep.
I had hoped it was all just a bad dream, but the books were still on the floor when I woke up again. XD

Oh, I came over from WOYWW btw, and I didn't know about May 4th before, thanks for letting me know!

Gosh it looks marvellous - amazing what a couple of sets of drawers can hold! I think it's important to craft everywhere in the house - that way, the family take it seriously!!

I sooo wish I could have cupboards like this but I don't think Brecon Beacons National Park would be happy about us changing the shape of our roof!! My room is in the loft!!
Hope you are happy in your lovely craftiness!

SueH said...

Oh wow, that’s some reorganisation!

It looks great and isn’t it lovely to have everything to hand so you can find what you’re looking for straight away.

You haven’t got my number peel-off’s over there have you because I’ve been looking for them on and off for days. Lol!

Love your brilliant new storage.

Elizabeth said...

Lovely transformation - and so much more storage for more crafting goodies. I did have to have my bookcase re-inforced recently and moved some heavy stuff off onto much sturdier shelving too so completely understand your apprehension. Our polling station is not a school so no holiday for the children/teachers here - shame :) Have a great week. Elizabeth x #38

len said...

It must be the time of year or something, I've had a bit of a tidy up. My chap has started to realise just how much stash I have, whoops! I think I should have left it all round the house as it didn't look as much ;0)
Love those cupboards, it looks so organised. Do you fancy organising mine for me?
