My Creative Space Thursday

After another little posting hiatus, I'm back on the Thursday bandwagon!! This week I'm displaying some of the reasoning behind some of lazy posting.

I have been a busy bee and have almost completely tidied up my Creative Space, to allow for more effective Creativity!

Is that a fabric shop I hear you say?? No dear readers, this is my collection of vintage fabrics, many of which I found in my Grandmas sewing box. To tidy them up and store in them in a way which allowed for easy access, I cut up all the removalist boxes (seen below) and used them to make fabric bolts.

The other benefit of this exercise (other than neatness) is that I can now see the wide variety of fabric I actually own!

And although the above looks a little messy, it is actually all my vintage tins which hold my colour coded threads and buttons, lace, and sewing bits and bobs.
This is the before shot. I'll take and After shot on my newly purchased Canon 1000D soon!!!!

Great job you've done there. It's a fabulous feeling, isn't it? I just wish the order lasted longer in my work room! ;) K
