Beware, there's photo overload coming up.

I wanted to show you where I create, well, the messy stuff anyway. You see I am fortunate enough to have two seperate creative studios, the sewing studio is in the middle of our home. I have an old caravan out in our back yard that I stripped out, re-lined and painted and have been calling my second home for a number of years. This summer I intend on painting the outside of my studio, something nice and bright I think.

Lets begin....
hmmm, my very messy desk (not much creating going on here atm)

under my very messy desk I keep tools such as a heat gun, melting wax pot and an iron. There are rags and scrap paper for bench protection and my stamp making supplies. Let's not forget my old red slipper boots, they're so comfy.

to the left of the desk are shelves full of sprays, inks, embossing powders, tools, gel mediums and glues and art journals etc, etc, etc.

this is where I keep my stamps in cd cases, ink pads and stationery, brushes, tapes etc are on top.

in the black drawers are scrap papers, vintage papers and projects I'm working on. The pizza boxes on top are project boxes and the stacked boxes contain tags, lettering and bits and pieces.

a vintage shelf sits on the wheel arch and holds journals made by myself and friends and vintage pianola rolls.

oh gosh, these shelves have heaps of different stuff on them. Most important is my cd player and cds. There is buttons, ribon, lace, more journals, projects, folders of information and spare folders.

these stacked drawers hold lots of letter and number stamps, foam stamps, chipboard and rub-ons. The large containers hold kids craft stuff and on top, spare canvases.

'wet stuff' is in these green containers like paints etc. The cupboard underneath holds sample pots of paint and vintage books.

the box on the table holds papers that don't fit into my vertical holders and the little cases are a project on the go. The pin board behind has painted fabric on it ready to be cut up.

ahhh pizza boxes, what would I do without you?

artwork from friends hangs across the wall.

some pieces of mine around the place.

So there you have it, a peek into where I create. Where do you create? I'd love to know.


  1. Wow, you sure are organised Sue! That was fun.

  2. Great place to create. I love that you used an old caravan.

  3. I love it!!! what a great space!

  4. Oh my goodness, your space is incredible! How nice to have it all to yourself for creative pursuits. It's very well organized and I'm amazed at how many hobbies you have!
