My craftcorner

Carlz needs help with some inspriation to her craft area, storage etc. She has just repainted her room and I think it will look fab! It's grey and lime and from what I've seen it's mucho trendy :)
She wants to see our craftspaces and although mine is a constant work in progress I must admit I'm very proud of the shelves and birddecorations I managed to put up on my wall. I even sewed the curtain you see on the pic :) I need it to be colourful in my corner. It's very sunny and bright there and I love how the bright colours look in the sun!

She will be giving away a blogcandy, so clean up your corners, photograph them and put them up on your blogs. The candy is open until friday april 3:rd 10pm GMT.

I'm very proud of the white shelves that we put up a while ago. They hold my old jamjars (now for flowers etc.) and decorations, things that inspire me, things I've made and so on. I love it! On the wall I have put walldecos I think they are called. It's like a big sticker for the wall that you can reattach (and it doesn't ruin the wall) I'm quite happy how the corner is looking. It's very me :)

Old pic of the corner with some last minute curtains (if you can call them that) that I put up before my stepdad came to visit after we moved in. Somehow they stuck around for another year or two. It's basically a long sheer fabric tied to a curtainrod, lol. I like the new curtains better, but when my mom came to visit she wasn't impressed especially when I told her I had made them myself, lol. I don't think she will ever apreciate "homemade" stuff. I guess it reminds her of macaroni necklaces and horrible homemade 70:ies outfits :D

My "stampeater". It holds all of my woodmounted stamps. I'm totally gobsmacked that the drawers haven't broken yet, lol. This piece of furniture has plastic drawers and I got it second hand. Talk about good quality! I have 3 layers of wooden stamps in every drawer. Do I need to say this is the lifesaviour for my stamps? :D

Speaking of finding solutions for your stuff I found this terrific idea for ribbons. I tried it, but it didn't work for me. I don't have any good place for it and the place I had in mind didn't look good with it. Maybe you'll use the idea? You can see what I'm talking about HERE.
