Hello again Friends!
Thank you for all your comments yesterday...I got into the craft room tin the afternoon and made a card (Yay! My first of 2015!!) that I'd been requested to make, it's another card with a bit of an interactive touch and I'll be posting it tomorrow. It was a case of having to get on with it as it was a commission from someone who works with Tom and is needed for tomorrow :)
In the morning however, Tom and I completed the little project for my craft room that we started yesterday....amongst my crafty Christmas presents, a non crafty friend gave me some stamps from a Company called 'Stampscapes*'...and one of the stamps was a wooden one. This got me thinking that I do have a few new-ish wooden stamps, which are on a shelf, but most of them are just sitting in a drawer...forgotten :(
Just a few days ago, whilst drooling over the fabulous craft rooms on Pinterest, I looked at ways crafters store their wooden stamps and some of them were using shelving with a very narrow width that can fit behind a door. I have a very narrow space opposite the door in my craft room, no room for anything much and wasted space.....I showed Tom the pictures and he said "we can do that"....and this is the result:
We just got some wood to make the shelves and backed it with hardboard. I will paint it (probably) but I have some other items to paint and plan it all for the spring when the weather gets a bit better and I can take them outside.
I've got to say I am really pleased with our effort, plus I have visible storage for my wooden stamps and no more wasted space. I should have got the larger stamps out before, I didn't realise some of them were so tall. Tom said we can remove a shelf, but I'm happy with them on their sides for now...and look there's room for more:)!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
Love and Hugs,
* Stampscapes: I had not heard of them but by coincidence (and luck) they are featured in a tutorial in a recent 'Craft Stamper' magazine. I had a look at their website and YouTube channel, which features some incredible tutorials for the stunning scenes they have created with their stamps...also on Pinterest. I think the stamps will also mix well with some Lavinia stamps that I own...so can't wait to try!
