Birthday Blog Hop With Giveaways - celebrating 1st Year With Swedish House Crafts

Welcome to Swedish House Crafts 1st Birthday Blog Hop!

If you have come here from lovely Anna you are on the right track.

If you have lost your way? There is a list at the bottom of my post of the blog hop order.

I am so excited about this celebratory blog hop, and to be a part of the fabulous team fills my heart with so much joy!
Us DT ladies are showcasing our craft rooms.
I hope you like what you have seen so far???

I am going to give you an insight about my my craft room, my happy place, where I like to sit and craft for hours at a time.

Let's start by showing you my craft room. 
This is where all my work takes place.

I'm a very tidy, and organised crafter.

The trolley in the far left of the photo is filled with glues, foam tapes, A4 card, and flower soft.

My favourite place in my craft room is where I sit and craft.

On my desk everything is in the right place.
I have OCD!!! Right?

The drawers in my work station are filed with ribbons, lace, pearl strings, punches, metal charms, distress inks, and pearls.
Inside the cupboards is where I keep my card, some dies, magazines, and boxes that I use to put my finished hand made cards into.

Inside my cupboard is about as messy as it gets.
To me that is called clutter, but at least I can close the doors 😊

I hate having the drawer storage units on top of my work station as there is no space elsewhere in my craft room for them to go, but, it works out okay as the units are still easily accessible. and it means no bending down. Lol!!!

I keep my design papers, most of my metal dies, chipboard pieces, freebies from magazines, and scoring mats in the drawers.

I like to keep my rubber stamps, and mulberry flowers in plastic storage boxes.

My favourite rubber stamp collection is Magnolia.
There are 3 full boxes.

I like to stack the boxes that contain the flowers in size order. 
30mm, 25mm 20mm. and 15/10mm mulberry paper roses. 
The bottom two boxes contain leaves, stemmed flowers, and berries.
Like i said, I'm very organised.

I hope you like my crafty space? 

You can win this giveaway!

Magnolia Miracle Love Tilda rubber stamp.
All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning this gorgeous stamp 
is leave a comment on my blog.

The blog hop is open world wide, but not shipped to India as unfortunately the post gets lost.

I will pick a winner on 12th November.

You will also have to grab the letter from here, and all all the other letters that are on my teamies blogs. Guess the word, and enter the giveaway on the Swedish House Crafts blog.

Thank you for the chance to win.
