Beautiful Craft Spaces - Giveaway

 
Hi all, would love to say that I am a tidy Crafter, but that would be lying. I really do best when I am surrounded by my crafty mess!! I wasn't aware at the time that I was being photographed. As you can see I have some intense concentration happening there, luckily my tongue isn't poking out as well, lol.

I often use my ironing board , I like to stand when I do my cutting and when using my dies. I am afraid the board doesn't see much ironing.

I must of had a busy day, as you can see some of the ribbons hanging out and stuff everywhere. Just the way I like it.
I love all those photos of other peoples craft places, and they look so neat and tidy. Well, one day.  Every time I clean up I can't find a thing........................
Head on over to Beautiful Craft Spacesblog and enter the giveaway.
Blessings Hilde
