Completed Craftroom - 5 days!!!!!!

Blimey what a week it has been, I'm totally knackered!!!!

Have finally finished my craftroom, so if you are interested, sit back and enjoy the tour.
As you walk in and turn to the left this is the sight that greets you, not sure everything is going to stay where it is, when I start working things may move.

I really pondered the worktop choice and final decided on two tables from IKEA, only £30 each, bargain, one is where I will work and the other one is for my class on Tuesday's.

Here is where I have put my Bigshot, Cuttlebug and Expressions, but I'm not 100% yet what is going to stay!! I may still get rid of bits and pieces to make room on the shelves, for these to live when I'm not using them! I have 2 Bind-it-alls, bought them bought for classes, If anyone is interested I'll take offers for one.

Here is where my Copics and Promarkers are going to live as they are used constantly, along with my tool tote. I don't know about you guys but I still haven't found anything to keep my tools in that I am totally happy with. The red things on the window still is Emily's Foot Mould that was made when she was 1.

Here is the sight that greets you as you walk in the room. Its fully now, this photo was taken yesterday as I was sorting. I'll work from left to right.

Here are most of my Sizzix Dies, I think I had forgotten what I had, but can't bare to part with them. My Billy Bookcase is going to look after them though! There is a second Bookcase which you can see that is housing my SU inks, til I buy the storage unit!
Now here is where I have put, my SU stamps, almost floor to ceiling, Benno DVD Towers, brilliant, adjustable shelves so you can have them to the heights you need! The other one has various bits and pieces, but its the third one I love! All those jars with bits of ribbon, Just like a rainbow.
More ribbons, I have absolutely loads!!!!! The shelves on the wall were £2.49 each and are perfect for Martha Stewart and New SU Punches. OH!! There is a gap, will have to purcahse a few more to sort that problem out!!!
And more SU and EK Success Punches, the baskets have gone, I don't really use all these anymore.
Three more shelves with yummy MS Punches, and my collection of Cricut Cartridges! Plus a lovely Halloween Card front from Ria.
Now this bit was the part of our trip to IKEA which caused a discussion. Emily thought I ought to go for Black and White, but Andy thought a bit of colour would be better, so went with orange and white. Again these where a bargain. The magazine holders hold a complete set of Colour family Card!!!! Good excuse to stock up!!
The CD Boxes underneath have all my stamps in !!!!!
Hope you have enjoyed the tour.
Now I might go and create my first card!!!
Have a lovely evening, thanks for popping by and Thank you for all you lovely comments!!
