Craft Room

Wow!! Check out my new desk!! I have so much space it's amazing. It took most of the weekend to get organised but it's so worth it.

I have a place for my laptop and printer, my Big Shot and I have drawers for all my
punches, embellishments, dies, wheels etc.

I also have custom made shelves in the wardrobe (I've had these for a few months). I use this for my demo supplies and my stamp sets.
