This week we head all the way to Singapore, to tour paper crafter Yenni's organized and beautiful craft room.
"I love to make cards most of the time but if I had spare time and space I would love to make lots of other projects. I love the feeling of turning an ugly useless item into pretty things. I feel like I am the fairy god mother to abandoned stuff."
Is this also your work space?
I do normally only tend to craft in my dedicated craft area as I dont want to make a mess in other places. I love to make cards follow by alteration projects (mostly out of recycled items).
What have you done to make your space cosy, beautiful or inspiring?
I need to paint my craft area in colours that I love such as pink and white. I can't really decorate my space as my outgrowing supplies have taken over but I still steal a little space to to display things here and there, such as the birds figurine I like (spot the birds in the photos).
How do you keep organized?
I was a very organized crafter until I became a stamp addict and the supplies updated weekly. I gave up on tidying up the place and then a messy crafter named Yenni was born! However, every time I finish a project, I will try my best to tidy up so that I am ready for the next project.
Any tips & tricks for organising supplies?
I am not good at this but I love to organize all my stuff in to boxes and I created handmade labels for them. You can see them on some of my photos. I also love to keep reorganizing my stuff until I can find space to hide my new stash :P
Which are your favourite possessions and are there any of your own creations on display?
I must have stamps, paper, flowers and dies. I couldn't live without them! Sadly I don't have any of my creations on display , my space is just too small so I have to store most of my projects in boxes.
How do you organise your inspiration and ideas?
I love to browse the internet and use my phone. When I find something I like, I always bookmark those inspiring ideas/project. I steal a little time while waiting for the bus to work to browse around those bookmarked blogs/sites.
Where do you look for inspiration?
I always look at Pinterest, Etsy shops, Scrapbook company blog such as October Afternoon and Challenge blogs.
If you had three wishes, what would you do to make it the dream craft space?
1. Expand Expand Expand,
2. Expedit Expedit and more Expedit (One of series of ikea cabinets)
3. Extra Extra Extra pink and white stuffs such as birds figurine, Angels, Chandelier....etc (Am i asking more than 3 now? ) :)
