A great 'crafty' year!!

2017 has certainly been a great year for me. An amazing trip overseas with my wonderful husband and our two youngest kids. Also the year we had my studio built and I began holding 5 classes a week. 
My studio is only small but perfect for me. It faces our garden (divided by a fence) but you can see the silver birch trees and hear the birds. I can have a maximum of 6 people at each class and that gives us room to move around and use the big shot etc.

A few photos of my happy place 💖

The view as you come up the driveway.

Lovely bi-fold doors that can be opened up when the weather is nice.

All my card stock is stored in the clear storage units
The red Ikea unit has stamp sets in the drawers and bigger items in the cupboards below.

My desk is from Ikea. The storage unit on the top is made by a very talented man. You can find him on Facebook - Colcraft. This unit holds all my punches, ink pads and ribbon. It also has 4 drawers for other bits and pieces. The antique question mark was gift from my daughter.

The two felt display boards on the wall are inspiration boards and sometimes to show people coming to class what we will be making.

The desk is from Bunnings and folds down if needed,  chairs are from Ikea. 

Hope you enjoyed a look around my studio.
Looking forward to a great 2018 xo
