I'll admit, I like to be organised. When I'm baking I wash up as I work. It's got to be neat, tidy, straight and ordered, otherwise I fret. In my ideal world I'm a minimalist, but I live with a hoarder. It's been good for me as I've had to learn to be a bit more relaxed!
Enough of that, let's see the pictures! So, just like going through the Wardrobe into Narnia (well, ok, not really!) let's visit the magic world of art supplies in my secret store cupboard.
Not a pretty picture, but I love my tools and equipment. My latest joy is a modelling tool set himself bought for me several years ago, because he said I would find it useful one day. He was right! I finally needed a mini drill and now I am drilling holes in everything which does not move! The blue fishing tackle box holds spare art and drawing things. The green one is full of clays, sculpting tools and moulding silicone.
Yes, I love paper too! Watercolour papers, sketchbooks and journals, new and used ( There are more full ones stored away) Cartridge paper and Khadi paper.
I fell in love with the pencil case which is an Emma Bridgewater design. (In my ideal home all my china is by Emma Bridgewater, and there is lots of it!)
There's also several folders of my designs and information, fabric papers for digital printing, assorted notebooks, my camera, pro light-box, silk painting frame, embroidery frame stand, A2 and A4 self healing mats, quilting ruler, mini household tool kit, watercolour paper stretcher and my A3 drawing board - (stops to pant...) but you don't want to see all that! Phew! And it's all in my cupboard !
Over to you - what are your favourite arty things? We want to hear!
