hello stranger


I've been a little quiet lately as a corner of The Craftroom
was soaked in the recent rains .
It was a great opportunity to have a big cleanup.
Lots of stuff was ruined and has been thrown out .

My studio was originally built for
teaching decorative painting
and before classes my machine and sewing supplies
had to be stashed away .

Now the Craftroom is just for me I'm finally
setting it up just the way I want it .
As I am running Clare's Craftroom from here
I want it to be functional but comfortable .
There is still lots to do sorting out as
well as running my business but
I'm getting there .
I can't wait to show you when it's finished .
Just thought I'd let you know in case you
thought I'd become blogless !

Life sure is pretty fun and exciting for your right now Clare. There's nothing like organising and setting up a studio to get the creative juices flowing. I can't wait to see your creative space.

Hi Clare,
your yummy collection reminds me of having 50 cents to spend on mixed lollies at the milkbar!!
So.... I'll have one of those, and ummm 3 of these ones, and...

Wooh that looks neat and tidy. Wish I could hire you for a couple of days.

Tania said...

So, so pleased to hear you’re not blogless (if a little damp). Meanwhile, am entirely in awe of your organisation and storage - just the fact that you don't have to 'unpile' containers to get to the bottom one. Sigh...

Shay said...

Love the boxes.It reminds me of a candy store.

Isnt it great when you have a space and you can claim it completely and utterly for yourself and do whatever you want!

Mistea said...

Looks like a fun place to work.
Lots of inspiration in those boxes.

Faeryfay said...

Very organised! Love those plastic boxes!

Allie said...

RobynK said...

Looks very colourful and very organised so far :)!

Tania said...

That looks fantastic, something to aim for my craft stuff is all over the place at the moment

Leni and Rose said...

Oh dear! Hope you didn't lose too much! LOVE that organisation. Must get onto a bit of that myself!

Red Heads said...

Baby Clothes said...

We can say one thing here "Rain rain go away, come again another day". Might this give you relief from this shower. But I must say you got some pretty good container to store your craft work.
