Rock Music and a craft room make over pictures

I've been awol from my blog since Sunday,but still busy with crafting and improving my craft room. I'm very lucky to have a whole room for crafting, but it is a small box room so space is a premium with all the stash I have . Bob and I went to Ikea and shock horror....we never had a row...just got lots of ace furniture . I always wanted an A2 size set of draws and I got one and a tall set of 9 draws. My punches had become a real problem, not now though, with my adorable red metal draws, they are so cute and deep but take up so little space. No punches to fall on my head now. Most of the boxes are filled with clear stamps. The 4 square box unit on the landing holds wood stamps and stickers etc. Bob has my old unit for his hi fi in the extention. So I've took some pics to show you, not posh at all, but it's my little heaven on earth.

Just bought the new  double cd's from La Pashe and just inked, they are fabulous and great value. The image on my card is from just inklined ,considering this one digi image costs £3 to buy on line , the 2 cd's for £18 where a must have.
The card is for our friend Nick , he has a birthday next Friday, he is music mad and has more cd's and records than HMV. I've coloured the image with pro markers, the papers are pet stack by DCWV. I've added a star brad threaded with red ribbon and a craft work cards sentiment.

Hope you like my pictures, like I say nothing posh but I love it. The wooden shelf box my hubby found in a skip at the Post Office where he works , his boss let him bring it home for me, it's an old letter sorting box, I wish there were more but there was only 1.

well enjoy the rest of the day, quite pleasant here. Just bought a few bits of clothes in the sale at M&S. Gosh the amount of spending I'm doing and no job yet. My son Sam has just been offered a full time job so is leaving education for the money.
happy crafting. janex

Great card Jane, I was thinking of making my son a card with this image.
Your craft room looks so tidy, you managed to find lots of fab storage - I'm also in the middle of sorting out my craft room, lots of storage being delivered by IKEA tomorrow - so no prizes for guessing how I will be spending my weekend.

I couldn't resist those CD's either but haven't had a chance to make anything from it yet. Great colouring in the image above - must have taken ages.
Can you come and organise my craft room then? It's nowhere near as near and organised as yours.

Wow mrs thanks for pointing me to see this, don't know how I missed it. Love your craft room. I have that tall set of drawers and love them too. Also have some of the wee cups but no wall space to hang them at the mo:( Love how you store your ribbons!! Might have to try that, my drawers are bursting at the seams lol. I am definitely going to treat myself to that cd now, you have convinced me. I love that card.
