What's on my desk

As I'm still swooning over the luxury of having my own desk, I thought I'd share a few snaps. I bought it from eBay and had it delivered the day after we moved - and I already can't imagine my crafty life without it.

My sewing machine takes pride of place on top, alongside my all important stash of washi tapes. I bought the mug tree from a charity shop thinking that it would easily hold them all; alas I clearly have too many (joking of course, you can never have too many!).

When I was looking to buy a desk I knew that I wanted a writing bureau for the drop down top and awesome amounts of storage. I'm super duper happy with this setup as as the end of a sewing day I can just shut the top up and hide the mess!

Inside I have a complete jumble of sewing and crafts materials. To be honest, when we were moving I just emptied all of the contents in a mish mash thinking that I'd come back and organise it all, but so far I haven't needed to. I can pretty much see where everything is as I'm so used to having everything in jars and boxes, but maybe one day I'll reorganise it all.

There is also a drawer that I've filled with stamps, inks, stationery and paper, and then a cupboard at the bottom that fits all of my fabrics perfectly. I've had to put a few other supplies in storage boxes, but for now this desk is just right for storing all of the essentials :)


  1. Gorgeous sewing machine!

  5. good organisation! i like your washi tape collection ;3

  6. This must make crafting so much more enjoyable! I find the hardest part is often clearing up the (creative!) mess when the space is needed for something else, and now you don't have to worry about that :) xxx
