OK so this is my mess, a table in the spare room, I can call it a spare room because its not in use since Debbie moved to Glasgow two years ago. It's now just another room that's full of junk, oopp sorry, I mean things we no longer need but are too expensive, sentimental or bulky to get rid of. My dream is to turn this room into a proper craft room but It's never going to be done as I spend all my free time downstairs on the sofa with my lap top! If there were to be power cut I would be so lost I would surprise myself by getting around to all doing all those jobs that need doing, does that sound familiar?
In resent years I have spent a lot on rubber stamps, yes I am a stamp tart, infact I am worse than that, I am a snobby stamp tart! I like my stamps to be quality rather than quantity, good brand names that you will all know
10 years ago it was all PSX and HeroArts
Then cute kids came on the secen and we discovered Magnolia & Stampin Bella in 2007, I have a box especially for these.
Sugar Nellie was born 2007 and I took a few home ;)
A visit to Sweden 2008 boosted by Hanglar Stanglar collection and this year 2010 ebay has seen a lot of my pennies for more Hanlars
CCdesigns and The Greeting Farm have a little space on my table too.
What I do miss out on are the sentiments, Hero Arts do a few sheets and Personal Impressions have some great value clear stamps that are always usable at £4.99 a set.
Rubber Rubber and a little bit of clear, but no wood mounted any more, those days are gone for me.
Buttons, ribbons,punches, bling and flowers, along with a couple of boxes of brads and charms.
A few boxes of 12" papers and pads, I prefer 6" when it comes to pads but sometimes need the bigger size for boxes.
A score board, cutters large and small and a few ink pads.
My couring choice is Prisma, Pro markers and Copics.
For cutting tools I have a cuttle bug, I did have a big shot once upon a time but there is not much in it between those two.
Somewhere in the mess is a Cricut and if only I could find the cart to go in them........
My biggest waste of money..................only my opinion..............craft robo.
I can't use it and don't have the time to learn.
All in all, after 10 years I don't have as much as some crafter's but then again, I don't get the time to
craft as much as I would like. But there is something about a craft shop, I just cant walk past without going in to see whats new...........
