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 :-)


  1. That looks amazing! So realistic!

  2. Wow Natalie, it looks so real. I'm just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

    1. Thanks Chris, for your lovely comments:), I'm off to check out your blog ^^

  3. Hi Natalie, this is my first visit to your blog. Your craft room is so cute! Do you work in 1:6 scale or 1:12 or both? I am just starting out making doll tutorials and I picked the 1:12 scale because I thought it was most widely used, but now I am not so sure. I'll follow you from now on. You have some really clever ideas. --Julie

    1. Hi Julie
      Thanks for your lovely comments and for visiting:-)
      I work in both 1:12 and 1:6 and I also work in 1:16, 1:4 and 1:3 scale.
      1:12 is definitely the most common among adult collectors and most of my miniatures are in 1:12 scale! I'll check out your blog to see your tutorials
