I do love my little crafting room. I am currently making plans to relocate the dolls house upstairs, so I can add a small desk with storage where that is housed, yay for more storage space. I also need to organise my stamps a little better as currently they are just thrown into the storage baskets. I am thinking cd or dvd cases might be the way to go.
I also forgot to say in the video that the lamp was from Studio (formerly Studio 24).
What do you use as your craft space? Let me know in the comments.
Pens, pens and more pens, fountain, gel, paint pens, chalk pens; a girl can never have too many. I will take you through some of my favourites to use in planners, planning and journaling as part of the Planner Girls Collective. This post uses affiliate links, but they are all for products I use and love myself.
Stationery Island Chalk Board Pens and Brush Pens
I love Stationery Island pens, they are such good value and are great quality. The chalk pens are perfect for lettering in art journaling and they go over paint easily. The brush pens are watercolour compatible and blend so easily. You can see me using them here.
White Gel/Paint Pens
Good paint pens are a good investment for art journaling and general journaling, Posca Uniball pens are a must and again these can go over paint. I also couldn't live without my PentelHybrid uniball gel pen in white and gold for extra detailing, they write so smoothly.

Mothers Day is fast approaching, so why not make a lovely D.I.Y Pocket Letter as a personalised gift or card alternative? I made my first one last week and I love the finished result, such an easy paper craft and quick to make too.
I have been planning on making a pocket letter for quite some time now after seeing a tutorial last year by Mrs Brimbles. I have been sitting on the pockets themselves for well over 6 months and finally got around to making one after taking part in a weekend of challenges lead by Michelle Mills and Louise Maylan as part of their Stampin' Up workshop/monthly kit. More information on the workshops can be found on my Scrapbook post.
