Forgotten Friday 54- Having a good sort out

Hi folks, as I mentioned in my earlier post, I've been having a hectic week this week. Our heating packed up yesterday and we were left without hot water as well. However, the kettle still worked, so I could still have a cuppa!

For the past three days, I've been sorting out my Craft Room, it desperately needed it. I have started to sell some unwanted items on Ebay, and will continue to sort and sell as I go along. It all helps to fund my new stash, so that's good!

As I've been so busy, I don't have a project for you this week, but I will take you on a photographic tour of my rapidly improving Craft Room.

My now very tidy desk, this is normally piled high with avalanches of magazines and stacks of card and paper. This is the first time that my Big Shot Pro has seen the light of day, and I bought it last year., I just haven't had a space to put it on my desk. That qualifies for a Forgotten Friday post!

My new storage racks that my OH has very kindly given me to put all of my Really Useful boxes on, I have 41 of them! All joking aside, I make jewellery as well as use them for my unmounted rubber stamps, so they provide great storage for both types of crafting.


One of my shelves has been relocated to sit above two that I already had, and I will put artwork on there as it is so high. I need steps to reach it, so it is impractical for holding craft supplies.

I have lots of boxes still to sort through, and am sure to come across loads of items that I can use in the coming weeks for my Forgotten Friday slots. I have found some great bits and pieces already.

Hopefully by next Friday, I can show you the rest of the room, and I will feel as though I have beaten the job of tidying up. I keep telling myself that it will be worth it in the end!

If you do get a chance to have a rummage through your crafty stash this week, and actually make something, please leave a comment on this post, and I'll pop along to your blog to take a look. Thanks for stopping by, xx

You've put us all to shame now Judith, I might have to have a sort through my piles of craft stuff on my worktops. I might then be able to use my Cricut thats sitting in the corner half buried. Here is my contribution this week.

Goodness this is taking shape - the shelving for the boxes looks superb - I thought I had loads of plastic boxes but I can now safely tell my husband I know someone with 41! Keep going it looks super & I love your work area.

Wow you are having a major sort out and those shelf units look brilliant for the really useful boxes (my favourite storage boxes). I'm sure you will be pleased you've made space for the Big Shot Pro which has been neglected so far.

I seem to be making a habit of combining your challenge with MMM but this bird stamp hasn't been used in such a long time but luckily I remembered I had it somewhere (fortunately didn't take too long to find).  Card is here
