My Creative Space


I think Kirsty's still on holidays this week, but I'm still playing my creative space anyway..... mainly because I wanted to show off the fact that I actually cleaned my workbench!

I spotted the plastic container idea over at Kimono Reincarnate last week. Melanie has all of hers nicely labelled, but I haven't managed to get that far just yet.

The great thing is that they're see through (so you can actually see whats in them), and they stack nicely, and I only paid around $15 for 50 containers and lids from Lombards.

Now, lets see if I can keep it this way..... wishful thinking?

Aahh, it's a nice feeling to be organised. You've such a brilliant space, it looks great! I love red your scales up there on the shelf, too..

Michelle said...

The plastic containers are a great idea, and your space looks so very tidy. Mine is a shambles....

Chantal said...

Looks great. Is that an old sideboard you've used to store your things in for shelving? I've only just noticed it but it's a great idea. Just the right sized shelving with drawers to have at the back of your work table.

It's looking great Cam. I tried to do the plastic container thing but I still manage to get into a complete shambles. It's a semi-organised shambles though. So plastic containers do control it a bit!

Jennie said...

Me too although about MCS, but it wasn't so much a decision than forgetting for me, and then I thought what the hell.
Your space looks amazing. Bravo for organizing and cleaning. x

I think I've asked you this before, but will you come up here and organise my life for me Cam? You are the most organised, and prolifically talented crafter I know...
I wonder if plastic containers will save me from my chaos???

Looks great! I am drooling, such a lovely space :)

Amanda said...

Looks wonderful. Makes me want to sort out my stuff a bit more.

This is a good storage set up. It's like a tv series called Mr Maker, which has this storage wall made up of lots-o-boxes, filled with lots of wonderful craft things.

How very organised - I'd like to see another photo in a months time to see whether the tidiness has been maintained!

Melanie Gray Augustin said...

It looks great Cam! And yep, the plastic containers really do help... my room is still a mess, but a little more of an organised mess with the containers :) Love your sideboard!

Selina said...

Looking good Cam! I just paid the kid to clean my room. Ahhh, to be 13 and think that $2 is well worth the trouble of folding and shelving an entire wall full of chenille!

m.e (Cathie) said...

very organised Cam! I saw that on Melanies & thought about it..stopped at the thinking about it though ;)

Miss Amy said...

oo very nice! I acquired my very own sewing table this week (ahh free cycle I love you) so I have done much the same as you! :D

Christina said...

Fantastic idea and perfect for those shelves. The labels sound like a great idea. Enjoy your new tidy space! And if you make a mess that is part of the process! :)

Jennifer Rose said...

What a transformation!! I hope it makes it easier for you to think and create.

The Clip Cafe said...

Very nice! We all know it wont stay that way long though :-) It never does - mine is due for a clean up again and only did it a couple of weeks ago....

Running Thread said...

I'm so impressed and so jealous! My creative space is a shamblesm .... thanks for the inspiration to start a clean up. Maybe tomorrow while the foot is on!

willow and moo said...
