Where bloggers Create

So as you know from my previous post below i am joining in the party for Where bloggers Create  if you go to the link, you will be totally blown away by all the spaces that my fellow bloggers have.  While this post goes live we, that is my family and i are enjoying the sunshine and waves of the Indian ocean on the Natal South Coast where my folks live, so pls feel free to leave a comment, i shall be visitin all of you when i get back.  For now here is a photo HEAVY blog post of what how my space looks.  There have been a few changes since the last time i posted pics of my space as if you scroll down you will see the changes i have made in the last couple of weeks or so.
 these are the paper stands on your left as you come in the main door to my craft room/studio
 in the centre of the room i have a table that i made from pallers and then put a huge plastic sheet over
 as you can see my punches are now on some old cot/crib rails that i salvaged from the side of the road, they we still smoldering when i rescued them, lol.  My kids in the back of the car were like "ah no ma, you aint gonna put those in the car, are you?"  damn right i did.  See how well they work for my punches.
 that there is my home made light box for taking pics of my cards for my blog, when i get back into the swing of thins.
 On top of my light box is my cricut, under a striped dust cover,
 My cutting station with my Ebosser under a gingham dust cover, my trusty cuttlebug and guillotine
 My home made swivel stand for all my dies, it opens up with more space inside, check the post below for more pics here, you will have to scroll down to see the inside of this stand
 And sadly my big shot without a dustcover and very neglected
 the little corner of the room that i use for coloring and stamping, lately though i find i use the centre table for a lot of creating as scrapbooking requires a lot more space than this, lol

 My Martha Stewart punches on another crib rail

 rhinestones and flat backed pearls in all the bottles on this stand
 the tower with all these plastic boxes keeps a variety of things, but at least i can see whats in the boxes at a glance
 these are some more rescued items, they were spice racks that now house my buttons, glittah and those nobs that you see poking their heads out have cut and dry foam on them for my distress inks, have enough to fill that stand just need to pop them in

 this stand at the end of my table has eyelets and brads in the bottles and those flat plastic boxes, each of the compartments open individually for easy access to the color brad or eyelet required

 Another view of those shelves that dominate my room, housing all my flowers in the jars, and then some garlands in teh glass jars.
Well i do hope you enjoy have a look around
