My Secret Creative Cupboard
Secondly, on a very sad note, please spare a thought for all those in the UK who are dealing with devastation of having their homes flooded; between the heavy rain and the coastal storms, there seems to be no let up. My heart goes out to them.
This week I've hardly had time to turn around! I've been doing a lot of writing - which I'll tell you about later ( 'Hmm, how mysterious, what is she up to now?'.....)
Meanwhile, since I posted about my teeny studio - I have seen a lot of other people doing something similar. Now, while I now this is nothing what so ever to do with my post :) - many of you did seem to enjoy it. So I thought you may like to have a more in depth look inside my secret store cupboard....
Being vertically challenged (5 ft) the cupboard's too deep and too high for me without using steps! I have to manage my storage carefully, and try to make sure I can reach everything I need regularly. It has to be useful - or it can't stay.
OK then, oft we jolly well go, starting with that rather unattractive, but oh so useful, plastic drawer unit......
Shell introduced them to me last year with her wonderful gift. I have managed to find a UK stockist for Valdani, but sadly only for their stranded cottons.
The big plastic crate contains all my fabrics for embroidery and doll making. A smaller crate holds Vilene, fusibles, wadding, and useful stuff that you don't really want to see a photo of. Ditto the large bag of fibrefill stuffing.
That's about it.
So how about you - any stash revelations you'd like to share? Do tell!
If you enjoyed this - let me know and I'll share the other half of the cupboard with you !x
