and while i am here over at deep ocean this week we have a fun theme and that is simple to show us your craft space we all love a nosey round other people's rooms dont we so get a piccy and join us !! 

so here is mine !!

now bear in mind that as the room is a massive attic conversion i very generously (make that VERY GENEROUSLY !!) share it with 2 very messy boys !! i did consider cleaning up before i took the photo but then i thought nah its school holidays they will be back messing up again in a few hours !! so i just kept the camera away from the worst bits !!

actually quite a tidy desk for me !! what you cant see is the boys mess directly behind it !! i have them contained in the corner so i can keep an eye on them while im at my desk !!

i used to have all  my ribbons and lace stored in a massive jumble in a box then after visiting my lovely friend kat (go check out her gorgeous room i want it!!) i was inspired to make mine pretty and girlie !! sooooooo i found this fab stand in ikea and massively reduced so snapped that up,it is sitting on a lazy susan so i can spin it round ,i got loads of dolly pegs and spent ages rolling ribbons and lace on them and for maybe a week or two it looked gorgeous !! now as you can see its back to being messy !!! lol 

hiding beneath some gorgeous lace curtains are boxes of stamps a mountain of papers and a very massive basket full of flowers oh and just a few dies and other assorted lovelies !! what you dont see is the bottom of the curtain where the puppy has chewed it !!! so there i am sitting at my desk with more often than not 2 boys cutting up ,glueing and generally destroying (sorry creating) anything they can get their hands on and a very small dog who eats anything she can get her teeth into her favourite being giant pipe cleaners and pom poms from the boys stash !!  !! oh well i can dream of a lovely shabby chic room i guess ....

hugs sara x x x
