If you have been following CASology, there is a special feature on all the DT craft spaces on every Thursday and Friday since October 15 and it will end on November 19.
So today, I am going to bring you to my little craft space, though small but good enough for me to work on my craft.
It is an L-shape room as part of it has been “carved out” to be the laundry area where my washer, dryer as well as ironing are tucked nicely in that carved out space. It makes it convenient for me to squeeze in craft time while waiting for the washer to be done.
Walking into the room, I am greeted by my desk, which I use it for crafting as well as for some paper work.
Yes, my chair wears socks! It is an old dining chair, super heavy and hard to move around. I decided to put these on and now I just glide it here and there without the worry of spoiling the chair or leaving marks on the floor. These are from Daiso…everything for just S$2 (about US$1.43). I LOVE DAISO!
Just behind my desk, there are two little cute trolleys (IKEA) of all sorts of things that I use it quite frequently. They are both tucked in the space next to my desk when not in use.
Here’s a closer look, you will see all the little tiny stuff that can’t be sorted out properly and so, I just put them all T-O-G-E-T-H-E-R! But…there is some order in what looks like chaos. I do get what I need so it works perfectly!
And here is how I store my clear stamps and wooden stamps,
I love these “pigeon holes” shelf from Ikea, it is so good for organizing stuff and it fits the 12X12 papers too. This is how I store my paper in one of the shelves,
I want to share this wonderful storage clear plastic bags from Daiso that I use it to store my clear stamps set when the original plastic bags give way. I find that it is the most affordable clear storage and the quality is really good (S$2 for 22 pieces!). Best of all, the size fits into the storage boxes that are also from Daiso.
Here’s a look at my markers storage as well as inks. There is a small recess into the wall. That’s actually due to the window ledge on the outside (I should put more flowers on the ledge, it’d be perfect to look at while crafting!). But this little recess area is good for me to tuck my Evolution Advanced when not in use, all my large craft dies, embossing folder, etc.
And a simple holder to clip my iPhone for my quick videos.
The little wooden storage for different inks is a simple DIY I made using wood from Daiso. It’s modular where I can move the small wooden crates around to re-configure to what I need. Or add more wooden crates if I need to stack them vertically up.
All my pigment inks are placed upside down, so the pigment stays on top of the ink pad that helps to keep the color rich. That way, it doesn’t sink to the bottom and make it look as if the color has faded and needs refill.
Lastly, this is what I do when I have all those work in progress or stamps I intend to use for certain projects,
I hope you have enjoyed this little tour into my creative corner.
Tomorrow, we will get to see Melissa’s workspace, so be sure to visit!

All the furnishings you see here are from Ikea while other accessories or organization storage are from Daiso, just in case you want to know.
Would you like to try out the

Do leave me a comment and share with me how you store yours. I will randomly pick a winner next week. It fits well for most brands of stamps like Mama Elephant, Lawn Fawn, Waffle Flower, WPlus9.
