Welcome to my Hobbit - my little crafting world

Good morning peeps, I've got my days mixed up lol, I said I would post my craft room on on Monday......I forgot oops....but in my defense I was making a card to enter into a few challenges today & it was a bit out of my comfort zone so took a wee ickle bit longer.... Anyway lets pretend its Monday ok......here we go; Good morning all, well its Monday morning & for some reason this morning I dont have the Monday morning blues lol, I'm posting my craft room on just as I said I would ;-)...................actually I'm gonna pause as my hubby has made me a cuppa & I really need some bickies with mmmm choccy 1s he he he he.....be bk soon.....
I'm back now, I was good & only had 2....ok ok I had 4 but who's counting sssshhhh........
Well here is my Hobbit......welcome, come on in & have a look around........
This is obviously the outside of it lol the blue cover is covering the bbq. This origonally was our summer house that hubby built but then last year he had a go at building our conservatory(he did a fantastic job of it....I am so proud) so once the conservatory went up the summer house ended up not getting used barely....its a shame really because we even have a real wood burner in there, you can see the chimney sticking up from the roof. Anyway in March of this year I come across some blogs & found out about stamping & then about Promarkers.....well I wanted then to get back into my card making so we brought me some stamps & hubby got me some Promarkers & before I knew it I had so much stuff & no where to put it...........so my clever hubby said I could have the summer house & he will put a strip light in & some benches, bookcase & shelves for my stamps as they were building up in a very large box......
So here is the inside of my ickle hobbit.....
For Father's Day I brought hubby an I-Pad so sometimes now he said he will sit in here with me which is why there are 2 stools......funny thing is tho that only 1 has still been used.........lol. My hobbit was done basic, we just brought plain white cheap worktops from focus, got a bookcase from there as well & some sheets of white melamine to use as shelves underneath the benches.........I absolutely love it tho its my little crafting space where I can do what I want, make as much mess as I want & even have my music loud lol...............cus of course we have to have music while we craft, I'm forever shaking my ass whilst working & as I'm normally working in front of the window for the best light I must look a sight lol............but who cares!!!!!!
This is on the right hand side as you go in........its my little jewellery making section( which I havn't used for few months cus I'm enjoying my cards way too much...sssshhhh dont tell hubby). This whole bench used to be for jewellery but as my craft stuff keeps on expanding for some reason I've had to squish it down to give me a little bit more space lol. The purple thing you can see up against the wall is my clipboard which I use when I'm colouring with my promarkers....I dont have to worry then about colours seeping onto anything....there is always a sheet of A4 card on there with stamped images lol.
The shelves contain all of my mounted stamps & all my un-mounted stamps are in a drawer....... the can there with the blue cap is damn blooming fly killer......pesky little things actually its the bees that bother me the most & in this heat we have been having I like my window & doors open!!!
This is the bench that faces you when you come in...I have my pics of my Dad(my bestest friend) & my Nan(she was like a mum to me) they are in here to give me inspiration...love them & miss them SO SO much!!! The black tub at the back that holds my pens & pencils is actually a sink tidy from Wilkinsons, its cheaper than a desk tidy & holds a lot more lol. The pic in the right hand corner that you can just about see is a pic my hubby made for me when I first got into stamps & promarkers.....he wanted a play & made me a picture for my hobbit lol.....bless him!! He also brought me a little sewing machine so it would take up a lot less room than my standard 1.....it was just £25..bargain...
This is on the left hand side, its where I mainly sit cus its right in front of the window & just in front of the window outside is the pond with a little water feature so when the window is open all you can hear is the lovely sounds coming from the pond.......altho you have to be careful cus the running water can make you go piddle more......lol. There is a big empty space on the bookcase.....this is where I keep my Magnolia's, but they are inside in the kitchen having a sort out as new 1s have arrived & there is still some new 1s I've not used yet........oops I am naughty!!!! The red box you can see underneath my back bench is my spraying box....its an old show box that I used when I'm spraying glitter or anything else like that & it sits in the box whilst drying as well. Everything is labelled in my hobbit & I mean EVERYTHING....I'm very organised & I like knowing where everything is.......I wish my home was like that but living with 3 males does not allow it lol...
Hubby came back an hour later whilst I was working on my card for the PFP Challenge & took this....so here is the back of me in my furry slippers lol. Well thats it from me.......thank goodness for that I hear you say.....I know I am SO sorry this ended up being a long post, I honestly didn't think it would be!!!!! I will be back later with a quick post for my latest card......gosh I have freed up some time, 3 cards in 3 days WOO HOO....I'M LOVIN' IT.........
Take care every1 bye-d-bye, thank you for visiting me I really do appreciate it & thank you sincerely for all of my wonderful comments that you all leave me, you are all GREAT!!!!!!!
