Hello. It all took a bit longer than planned, but these things do don't they? Not helped by a tooth extraction and the two day migraine that followed. Anyway, that gave Mr Buttonsforbrains more time to give the walls a second coat and build the furniture. So working around the room this is my Raskog trolley and the left side of the desk. The trolley holds all my colouring gear - copics, watercolours, pisma pencils, stabilo pens, inks etc etc. The desk is a large table top that simply sits on the drawers at one end with the other end attached to the Kallax eight cube unit using a couple of clever little brackets.
I have loads of space compared to my old little desk. I also now face out the window so it's much brighter. My Big Shot plus is handily right beside me - makes such a huge difference.
Swinging further round here are the top four cubes of the Kallax unit. The top nearest cube holds all my planner stuff. The cube below that, in the white basket, are my dies. Now all neatly stored in CD wallets on magnetic sheets - it's working well. The other four cubes below the desk hold lesser used items.
Then there was a change of plan. I was going to get some deep drawers for this length of wall but I loved the cube unit so much that I decided to get a second and have it lengthways. This means I can have some baskets along the top (although I don't know where those natural ones originate from cos' they are a bit smelly!)
I already had the little unit that the printer and laptop (when not in use) sit on.
And moving right round to the wall opposite the window, another last minute decision. This is a Hjalmaren ladder shelf. It's really cool and I love it!
Beside the ladder shelf is my spare chair for any guests that want to come and play!
And finally (thanks for sticking with me) close ups of a couple of the things on the walls. This butterfly free motion applique is from Sunroom Sewing. It matches my Mint Macaroon walls perfectly.
And this is my pride and joy. A cross-stitch sampler made by my Mum. I have quite a few of her cross-stitches but this one is my all time favourite.
So there we have it, I'm a very lucky girl. Now, where did I put that cute little hedgie stamp?
Hello, I'm Liz McGuire. I have been designing and making cards for over 10 years, serving on numerous design teams and completing assignments for various papercraft magazines.
Along with my cardmaking I like to try my hand at art journaling, memory keeping, smash books etc. And there is also my new obsession - planners and stationery! So there may be the occasional blog post on these topics.
I do have a real job but that's just to earn enough money to buy paper, stamps, pens and, of course, buttons!
