Another peek into my craft room

Good Morning to all my blogland friends!! Today I am writing here with a happy heart because as I sit here looking out the window, there is puddles and little streams of water all over and the rain is coming down ever so softly. It is so welcome as it was really very dry. In a weeks time everything is going to be green. We had 20mm during the night and by the looks of it we are going to have lots more during the day. Not a ray of sunshine in sight, only heavy dark clouds rumbling every now and then. In the distance I can hear the guinea fowl also being happy that it rained - what a wonderful sound! Isn't it just wonderful how the Lord looks after us and gives us what we need in HIS time, not ours!

Thought I would just give you another sneak peek into my new craft room. No doors on the cupboards yet as DH is just too busy with other things. I am not complaining at all - at least I was able to unpack most of my goodies and I was able to make my set of cards for our stamping groups Christmas card exchange. This is the one corner of the cupboard where all my embellishments, cuttlebug goodies etc. are kept. Once the unit that has to go above my work area has been put up, a lot of these will move into that. It will then just be an arms length away.

This is my workspace. Neat and tidy at the moment - haha! It is probably the last time that it will look like this. The pegboard is still to be fixed to the wall. I love having all of these goodies right in front of me. The wall unit will go up just above this across the length of the wall. The two trolleys under the counter have mostly my wood mounted stamps in and off cause some other have-to-have-close-at-hand goodies.

Once burglar bars and a security gate has been installed, my computer will go in this open space. (Susan, see that box behind the cello-tape? That is my swap ready to be posted to you). The CD racks contain mostly my embroidery machine pattern CD's and also some stamps in CD cases and my Nesties. Still have to make a plan with them at a later stage, as they are standing where my printer must go.

Well friends, that is all from me for today. Unfortunately no crafting for me today - I am off to do some 'farming'. Those of you who live on a farm will know that even when it rains, there are things that needs to be done on a farm. Today it is tending to a batch of sheep that was offloaded for the feedlot yesterday. Vaccinations, tagging, etc.

Hope you will all have a wonderful week filled with everything your heart may desire.

Thanks so much again for visiting!

  9. Hello!

    Your craft room is starting to come together! I envy you all of your space! It seems so strange to read of things beginning to turn green where you live - here in Wisconsin, USA it is getting so cold and snow is on the way! :<)

    Wishing you a lovely weekend!
