WOYWW #258

Well I have been missing in action for quite a while now but I have a good reason for it.
My last desk was 10 weeks ago wow how time has flown.
We've successfully moved with a few hiccups but it's all good now and this is the state of my craft room which I should add is twice the size of my last one which was 2 meters x 3 meters (8x12 feet)
This one is now 8 meters by 11 meters (26 x 36 feet).
When I first saw it I said to hubby "this room is too big", he rolled his eyes as he knows well how big is never too big for crafting.

 Another view
 Michael can also have a desk in the corner, what a mess!! Paper shelves still waiting to be filled
 My corner desk with computer and my brother gave me his tv so I can watch downstairs when Michael goes to bed upstairs. or just watch tv while I am crafting
 To the far right  is a room that has shelves and no windows which I will use to store my jam, perfect room. We shall also grow mushrooms in there too. The room with the door open is the toilet and bathroom.
 As you can see it is an ironing room too, I don't mind as its so big and I haven't totally unpacked yet, I counted 70 boxes still left to unpack
 This corner was used as a kitchen by the previous tenants, it is also the laundry too
Looking from the laundry side towards the back of the room, my desk is at the far right corner under the window. Michaels desk is to the left corner or the middle of the picture under the light to the left. The unpacking is slow going because I had to start work a week after we moved in. So I am unpacking a little bit at a time whenever I get a spare moment.

Linking up with Julia's Stamping Ground to see more crafty desks

Micheal is right - no space is too big for crafting!! love the look of this room and looking forward to seeing you crafting again Bridget :-)

Evelyn S. said...

I think that might be larger than the entire living space of my house! And my house isn't really small...
Nice to have the space, I'm sure!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I see lots of potential in this room. And having both a bath AND a kitchen area will be quite useful, if you do any wet type art. I think it's fabulous, and can't wait to see progression shots each week.

Happy WOYWW from # 1.

Nikki C said...

Wow that is one big space I'm sure you'll get it all sorted and enjoy going through all your stash hugs Nikki 6

Helen said...

Neil said...

It's been a while I know, since I last managed to link up but I'm back now and just popping my head round the door to say hello!
That is a massive space but I'm sure you will fill it before you know it!
Thanks for sharing your creative space and I hope you have a good week too.

One thing I totally miss living in the UK is the HUGE basement we had in pretty much every house I ever lived in in the States - well, not the browstone in NYC when I was a kid, but all the rest of them. Such a useful space and not as dark and dingy as people assume, esp. with a walk-out that has a door and windows and loads of light. Your space looks fab and has the advantage of being able to hide it all away. What I wouldn't give.... :)

Happy WOYWW!

Carole said...

You certainly do have a good reason for your absence...but what a great space...and a lot of work. Be well Carole #44

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Wow...what a huge space! You are going to have such fun in there when it's all sorted :-)
Good luck with the rest of the unpacking!
Hugs, LLJ 22 xx

Julia Dunnit said...

So to sum up - apart from a bed - everything you need is suddenly in your craft room..and your husband will keep you company some time. OMGee perfection!!
Happy new home Bridget, nice to see you surface from under the boxes!

RosA said...

Oh Bridget! That is the most FANTASTIC craft space! Everyone will be green with envy, I certainly am!
Thanks for dropping by, and yes, I did take some rather good photos on the weekend (Sydney to Cooma), mainly of sunsets and clouds which I was thinking of printing as backgrounds for some "stampscaping". Maybe I will put some of the pics up later?
Have a good week,
RosA # 17 said...

I could really spread out in that room. How lovely it would be to just have too much room!

Chrysalis said...

Wow - what an amazing space to play in! Congratulations on making it through the house move, too. I look forward to seeing all the lovely things you're inspired to make there. Hugs, Chris # 23

Welcome back Bridget!!! I've been thinking about you so here you are!

What a great space. Look at all those boxes to unpack - lucky you! I mean that sincerely because it's crafty goodness inside. I'm slowly moving boxes from my storage unit back to my house and it's amazing at some of the things I've found in those boxes. It's like Christmas.

Are you still in Australia? It seems you were going to move to the States (my memory is terrible) at one point.

Welcome back to WOYWW
Hugs, Kay (35)

Angela Radford said...

What a great room. You are very right to take your time with the unpacking to make sure everything is just right.
Happy crafting,
Angela x 50

Elizabeth said...

Hi Bridget, what a fabulous room - you will have hardly any reason to leave it as it seems to have everything and such a great size too. Good luck with the remaining unpacking and have a great week, Elizabeth x #78

Andrea said...

Ohhh Snap said...

As my nephew would say, that's fancy living. Not only a craftroom, but a room for jams and growing mushroomss! I still have boxes to unpack from 2006, but to be fair, whenever I unpacked the last box I had to move soon after so... Happy WOYWW! #66

Neet said...

Now I am completely green with envy at the space you have. Fantastic! You will soon fill it all up I am sure.
Now - FS will be on her way to Australia soon and now I know you are settled an waiting I will place you high on the list. Hope you have visited the new neighbourhood so you can show her around.
Happy crafting - Hugs, Neet 13 xx

MaggieC said...

Definitely not too big for crafting - not possible. Just to cheer you up, my camera recharger turned up last night so I just need to find my acrylic paints and my expensive handbag mirror. Hope you soon find the right box to find yours. xx Maggie #20

glitterandglue said...

Too much room, Bridget? Never. My hubby reckons that I could manage to fill Buckingham Palace, given half a chance - so you will do just nicely there. ENJOY!!

Emily said...

What a fabulous space and I'm sure you will fill every corner and spare inch with creativeness in no time at all.

My name is Cindy said...

Well I have just moved into a slightly larger room and the extra space means I can have a little dance when I'm feeling happy! This is truly and awesome studio space, lucky you, I'm sure it will be put to good use. Happy WOYWW Cindy #45

Darnell J Knauss said...

Eliza said...

Hi Bridget,

I have been wondering how you have been going, if you were settled in or not. What a massive space, you need office partitions for that room but what an amazing room it will be with all your goodies. Take your time unpacking it can be tedious. Have a great week. When you are ready can you send me your snail mail addy please.

Hugs Eliza & Yoda 90

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Bridget, what an amazing space! So glad the move went off ok- unpacking does take forever though, I agree. You have no idea of the heated discussions I had with the courier company- who were the problem, not the supplier- over the two weeks we waited for a next day delivery! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #29 xx

Kyla said...

Too big for a craft room?!! Hilarious :0)

Thanks for visiting my desk already


Nicky said...

Wow good luck with all the unpacking and filling your lovely new craft space - love that you have given Michael a corner! have a great week -happy WOYWW - Nicky #30

Neet said...

Oh WOW. What a room. I would love one so big - mind you I would spend far too much time jut planning. My room is about the size of your old one so I am green with envy.
Hugs, Neet xx
