It is actually a hugely heavy jali fretwork dining table with a glass top. It is not ideal - it has a 3 inch lip of wood right the way around to contain the glass which I would rather was totally flat for obvious reasons. I have my basket for my current project which is my kit and "in progress" album for Shimelle's "Learn Something New Everyday". Next to that now is my black set of drawers which used to hold scraps and now holds my ribbons, chipboard and die cuts. The stack of tins holds gems, baker's twine and embellishments for my current project. I still keep my black crop bag to the right but I still have to stand up to see inside it if I can't find what I want by feeling with my hand! Under the table there is where I keep my bin and I pull it out when I'm working there but push it in out of the way the rest off the time. I've sorted things so that the bits and pieces I go to regularly are behind me or all in one cupboard and it seems to be working but boy oh boy this was a tough job. I had so much stuff across the floor where I had had deliveries just before we went on holiday and where I hadn't put things away after my crop and after the crazy weekend of Shimelle's on-line crop. I ended up rolling over my photos and finding bent PP so I had to just stop creating more mess and put it all away. I thought I may as well sort it while I was doing it and I'm glad I did. I just need to keep it like that. I love to see other people's ways of organising things so if you know if any good ideas please do let me know.
I'm about to spend some precious one to one time with L (while B is at nursery) before he goes back to school next week. The summer holidays have just gone far too quickly, most likely blown and washed away! I wonder what lessons I will learn this September and if any of the things I learned last year have actually sunk in to my tiny brain! Please say hi if you are joining in Shimelle's class too, they are always great fun and so full of inspiration.
And in the meantime, for the list of other workspaces, please drop by Julia's blog and say hi.
