Studios

Sorry about the awful photo, it's dark! This is the first thing I have ever bought via the internet. I know! Amazing, huh? I have ebayaholics here at my house, but I'm not one of them. I really love "Cloth Paper Scissors" and have been looking for this special edition since it came out. I hadn't seen it anywhere here so decided to buy it from their website. It cost me the same amount that I would have paid for it at my local newsagent and only took a week to get to me, so I was very happy with my purchase. That's a bit scary. Now that I'm comfortable making internet purchases I will have to be careful. Shopping any time. It's a bit of a worry.

I have had a great day looking at artist's studios and storage systems. Being an artist or crafter entails a lot of stuff. I have been spending this year sorting and organising my house and it's still going on! This is my stitching trolley. I have put everything I need to stitch in or on this trolley. It sits in our making doing room (under a cover) and can go anywhere in the house with me. It holds all my projects and I can quickly grab something from it as I rush out the door to be the taxi for the kids. Being organised makes life so much easier. Hopefully my whole house will be completely organised by the end of the year!

Love your stitching trolley - great idea! Glad you have your priorities right and started the organising in your crafting space!

You have a lovely organised space there, you really do need it for crafting. If I could get a set-up like this, then maybe I could give making a few things a go. x

Great to have a sewing trolley - hubby made me one when I came out of hospital a year ago - so handy to wheel about and to have everything on hand, however I often find there is always just one thing you need from the "other" room! Hope you enjoy the miniature show, unfortunately I wont be there :( but am sure you will have a good time oohing and aahing :)

What a fabulous idea! I find I get so much more accomplished when I have things organized too. I never thought of having a trolley to sort me out. Thanks for the inspiration!
