Crafting on my desk :-)

I always enjoy looking at my  miniatures:-) and I'm always on the look out for great display options for my minis. So having stuff I've made hidden in boxes isn't something I'm fond of :-)

A couple of weeks ago I took one look at my crafting area and all the stored minis, and decided I needed to display all the miniature craft items I'd made, especially replicas of my favourite paper packs, cardstock, stamps, stencils, pens, markers, colouring media etc; at least somewhere I could enjoy looking at them.

(I had even made rolls of double sided tape ;-))

So I decided to make a craft room scene that would sit on a corner of my desk. I wanted to duplicate my work area but that got a bit hard trying to replicate my storage units, so I decided to make Ikea inspired shelving that looked similar instead but still retaining the crafty atmosphere :-) of my space.

Almost everything has been handmade by me :-)

Making toy storage spaces...

... I needed more shelving for a toy room in my 1/6 scale diorama, and I was having a bit of trouble finding shelving |I liked.
My local craft store had  unfinished wooden bead craft organizers, so I bought a couple and painted them to use as shelves.

the finished shelving in the toy room :) and filled with lovely re-ment pieces
