About a month ago I really got back into my crafting about a bit of a break and I'm determined for it to stay that way. I think the reason that I stopped crafting though was because all my stash of anything and everything was kept either under my bed or in the loft. Not the handiest of places to keep things. So last month I decided to get rid of my "dressing table area" (I rarely used it) and create a crafting corner. My room is tiny but I think I did well.

Here's the pics:

A general overview of my corner ~ I bought a couple of cute jars from Ikea and found some empty pots of moisturiser cream that I decided would be perfect for beads and buttons etc

My wardrobe is right next to my crafty desk so I put some nice gift bags on top for extra storage

I hung up some shopping bags and old gift bags using some hooks from Ikea. Again, great storage for things I don't use everyday

My ideas board covered in "ideas" and a close up of items on top of desk

I made sure I kept plenty of room for the new love of my life ~ my own sewing machine (I used to always steal my Mom's)

We had this old Ikea set of drawers lying about which fits perfectly under the desk. One of the drawers was broken so I turned it into a shelf for my fabric

More fabric storage under desk

Thanks for looking Cheesy

What a sweet crafting corner you've made for yourself.  Very ingenious way of utilizing your space.  I love your shopping bag shelf.  Thanks for sharing.
