More using what I have, plus Shop Our Stash!

I've printed off a topper from another unused CD Rom, this is Enchanted Dreams, another Joanna Sheen CD.  It uses artwork from an amazing artist called Jospehine Wall, look at all the little worlds within worlds and details she paints!  I've made a card following Claire's sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp.  Card is a gatefold, using the matcing backing paper, a LOTV sentiment (the only stamping) and a tiny punched butterfly in mirri card.   I'm also entering Paper Sundae's Magical & Mythical Challenge as well as Gingerloft's Under The Sea Challenge.
There is a new challenge blog called SOS, or Shop Our Stash, that is a theme close to my heart at the moment.   I am lucky that I can buy nice things and I enjoy getting them, but I do feel guilt as the new things I *need* that lie unloved and gathering dust.  Their first challenge is Show Us Your Stash , show off your crafting space.  Hmm... you know that rule that anything expands to fit its space... that would be my craft room.  DH and I have the biggest room in the house for our hobbies, it used to be a shop attached to the house.  We took out the shop door and big shop window onto the street and put a sash window and the front and French windows at the back.  At the time I was doing lots of quilting and the amazing cupboard I use is purpose built for quilting and now is crammed with crafting things.  You can just see that DH is expanding his fly-tying out slowly from the corner of the room...  I've a couple more pictures but for some reason Blogger is turning them sideways, drat maybe I'll get to them later lol!

Have a great day everyone, hope to see you Shopping your Stash:)
