Hi Crafty Friends,
If you are new to my blog and Junque Journaling you might like a look at my Craft Space and how I store my crafty goodness! My space is in one part of our lounge room and my kitchen also has a few bits and bobs hiding in there also. At the moment my youngest son who is 21, is still home, but moving out in the near future I hope!! I want his room, so he is on notice lol!
Anyway, making the best of what I have, I found some useful furniture items. I am lucky to have some custom built storage and I have upcycled a few pieces too. I think I am going well as I haven’t moved it around for quite a while!
I have had a big corner desk for about 5 years and it is awesome. This half unit is on it and it holds some of my mixed media stuff like sprays, inks, glue, etc. The draws hold journaling stuff, pens, my small tools, tapes, labeller etc. On the top is my larger tools in the jug, my JJ basket has ephemera I have been collecting and which I must get some into my journal and my daubers on the end. I have a large Heidi Swapp non-stick mat on the desk at the front of this unit.
My computer sits to the left of this and I have a WRMK magnetic mat on the desk to protect it from the mess I make!! As it has a large ruler with it, it is very useful for holding items if I cut them with a blade.
This beauty sits behind me on a bookshelf and holds, 6×6 paper pads, stamp boxes which I use for storage, punches, wood stamps, my washi tape storage and small tools.
Across from my desk, near the huge lounge window, I have this repurposed bar with another shelf unit on top with stamps, my ink pad storage, ephemera folio and another paper storage unit. The tall books shelf is mainly 12 x 12 paper and cs. It also has large music sheet books and other different papers.
Next, to the vertical paper storage unit, I have some cube storage and a large paper storage unit, which I use to store lots of different supplies like tags, journaling stuff, ephemera and some stamps which are stored in tough plastic envelopes. My Raskog cart sits there when not in use 🙂 On the top of the cubes sits a spice rack for embellishment storage and some of my journals I have made, you will see sitting in the cubes.
I have just set my Raskog Cart up to hold my JJ goodies. It has some larger envelopes with found items, tags, stencils and different papers, on the top shelf. There is a box which holds napkins, paper doilies, fabric, tissue paper etc on the second shelf. The bottom shelf holds some mixed media tools like watercolour paper, paints and twine. The red buckets on the side hold pencils, distress crayons and markers. I have magnetic tins on the side of the cart that are excellent to hold metal embellishments, buttons, pearls my prima alpha stamps and other bits.
My Bigshot Plus and my dies etc are in the kitchen on a table I picked up from an op shop about 4 years ago. I also have a bit of a ‘mixed media’ station set up with a couple of non-stick mats and a spray box.
I am Greateful to have a craft space and some lovely items to use and store my supplies in. It may not be a fancy room with everything that opens and shuts, but its mine 🙂
I hope you may have found some inspiration for your spaces or some ideas for your JJ goodies,
Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know about your blog. I will hop on over and have a look too.
