Woo hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am beside myself with excitement! I didn't even sleep properly last night cos I was so excited! Tee hee.  Guess where I'm going today?... Ikea! Why?....because my husband has agreed that I can have a permanent crafting area in our spare room!!!!!!!!!

I've wanted a proper crafting space for ages. At the moment I craft on half our dining room table and the floor is stacked with boxes. I also have craft stuff in the spare room and some in the loft! It's pretty rubbish because I never know what I've got because it's all boxed up on top of each other and in different rooms. Our spare room isn't very big and currently houses our PC, a sofa bed, a folded up treadmill (as I can't run at the moment), a chest of drawers, stackable hanging files and my craft boxes!!! But we've decided we don't need a sofa bed and could have a single bedchair/futon in there instead so this will definately create more room. I still don't know how everything will fit exactly but I'm not worrying about the little details, we're going to Ikea!!! ha ha. 

I've already decided what I want. It's a white desk attached to a big storage bookcase and then I want to get a filing cabinet for my stamps (I already have a couple of stackable trolleys in the loft I can use too). I've also seen some little bits I want for my desk from Ikea and a cute little drawer thing for my tools from Betterware which I'm about to order. I absolutely LOVE looking at photos of people's craft rooms so I will take lots of before and after pictures and will take lots of close ups of how I end up organising everything.

Anyway, I'm off to surf Ikea and dream til my husband wakes up and takes me to Ikea to find my crafting heaven!! x
