First video. Welcome to my world, my happy place, my craft room!
Since this is my first video, there’s obviously a steep learning curve and some rookie mistakes were made. So no changing camera angles in future and I hope you don’t get seasick!
No I hadn’t just run up the stairs, I have no reason for being out of breath – it was the first and only “take”.
It’s IKEA furniture galore and then a lot of the acrylic storage items are from Amazon. My sign arrived two days ago from Vistaprint so figured it was the right time to film the tour. Enjoy 🙂
Matchy matchy! Stampin’ Up! colour co-ordination is everything, the card, ribbon and ink is just the beginning. I don’t get into it in the video but there are embellishments, punches and dies matching stamps, designer patterned paper that matches everything. It just makes me so happy. *wiggle*
I’ve decorated with some wedding items and bits and pieces but a few things left to do. In the video I mention the blank wall ready for pictures and pin boards, but I also have various domes and glass jars waiting to be filled with pretties. Future projects just waiting to happen.
I didn’t discuss in the video but I just got some cards made for swaps at a meet up in April. I also have pictures of Binx and Iris on my desk (they cameo in the vid) and my late puddle Pringle. The picture of Pringle is the last one I took of her before she passed at the grand old age of 18, with filters applied to create what I think is a stunning memorial of her.
Fountain pens are another hobby of mine, and so they get their own area to shine. The ink bottles are so pretty. It really makes the room a special place to be surrounded by my favourite things.
I hope you enjoy the video and it gives you inspiration for your own happy space 🙂 Sam xx
Love your craft room! You have done such a great job and seem very organised!
I live in Australia and am just trying to reorganise my craft room – is it possible for you to provide a link to the acrylic storage containers you have used?

Hi Louise, thanks so much. I bought most things from Amazon and a lot of it is mDesign storage, so may be worthwhile searching that for options near you. Here are some of the links though 🙂
Marker storage: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00WR9X2CA
Nuvo nail varnish storage: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B073TYS1BC
And most importantly the wine rack 😂
Hope it helps! Good luck with your room, would love to see pictures x
Thanks so much Sam – I will definitely seem if I can find those over this way somewhere. They looks so neat in your space. I have found the opaque white ones at ikea (as you say great for hiding away the messy bits -but I think your choice of the clear ones look and work better ….so glad you added the wine rack ! 😉 😊
My space is a bit of a mess of the moment as we have just repainted and I have decided to move from a very cluttered office to taking over my son’s old bedroom now he has left home. It is lovely to have room but even after a cull I have way too much! Hopefully organizing it all will help – cant wait to have a space that works!
Thanks for your help, happy crafting!
