Posh Drawers!


Aren't my new drawers fabulous! My craft room doubles as the dining end of my living room, so when craft stuff threatens to take over my whole living space looks messy. I bought one of these units last September and quickly figured that I could fit 3 of them in where I currently had a low blanket box. It took a while to save for 2 more units but I finally got them last week and have spent most of the past week arranging and rearranging. Everything had a knock on effect so if I moved some stuff into a drawer I ended up having to sort out the cupboard that that stuff had come from. I now have fewer bits of storage all over the place but I doubt that will last long. I just have 2 drawers still empty (and they're the shallow 1 inch ones) and I've bought yet more stuff this week. I'm beginning to think this craft obsession is a life threatening affliction!

And I've been so busy sorting and tidying on top of all the usual work, house, garden chores that I haven't had time to do any actual creating. Fabric and stitching haven't had a look in for what feels like months. The Take it Further challenge has been abandoned I'm ashamed to say and I've only done the odd bit of stamping. I did make this which was quite fun and it's being displayed on top of the posh drawers for the moment:

I love your posh drawers. Where did you get them? I need some new storage.

:-) I know that feeling - we have a one bed flat and way too much craft stuff in it!!

love the drawers.. I could use some of that organisation!

Wow! Great project. Is it a screen? Not sure of the scale from the photo. I love the stamps you've used - especially the masks/flourishes/arch. Haven't seen them before. Would love to get my inky paws on some like these. I'm checking out your storage too but I think I might need to move house before I'd be allowed anything like that!

I'm just having a look through your posts and this one especially drew me. Your screen is lovely and as for the drawers...envy!

What a wonderful creation, great architectural feel to it, really super! Speaking of super, your storage units are amazing! I am so far gone on the organization front....it's chaos here. I keep telling myself as long as good things keep coming out of my studio, I don't mind.....but it's getting pretty bad. Your word "affliction" is pretty accurate LOL

It is, indeed a life threatening affliction - or maybe just life long. anyway, just for fun, in composing a magazine article - after going through my own stash and descending in madness, I paraphrased the AA 12 steps to recovery. Not sure I really want to recover, tho. "Admitted I am powerless over threads and beads and stuff."
