my very own craft room, first pics

finally I now have my very own creative space, a lilac craftroom to craft to my heart's content.
It may be small and ever so humble but its all mine!!
Its 6 feet square, with lilac walls, heather carpet, funky pink and lilac curtains and decforated with Winnie the Pooh accessories, a crystal Tigger, W t P lampshade and wall art.

Above is my 5 foot craft desk, with my magnifying daylight lamp and my essential CD player. Below the desk are the 2 ornament shelves which will go into Carrie's new bedroom, when hubby gets round to it!
also when he gets round to it, 2 white wall units will be on the wall above my craft desk.

Below, my lilac bookshelves, ready to store my stash, most of whichis still in Carrie's (my grand-daughter) new bedroom, which was my temporary craft room after our son left home for uni and bought a flat last October.
 - Top shelf, my rub-ons and clear stamps in purple 2 drawer chest.
 - middle shelf my rubber stamps, inks and embossing powders in 2 storage units.
 - 3rd shelf, more rubber stamps in velvet box, and my cropodile.
 my pc desk with Kodak printer/scanner/copier.

can't wait to bring in all my stash, once the drilling of the units above my desk has been finished and cleared up, watch this space!
