This week we head to Surrey in England to get inspired by Torie's lovely organized craft space.

"I love that it is just my space so is super girly!"

Is this also your work space?
This is my work and office space too, I like sitting on my couch in my living room to knit and hand sew. My craft room is a single bedroom upstairs at the back of our house, I used to share it with my partner, but he now has the guest room as his office. The crafts I do most are sewing, paper crafts, glueing, painting. I love that it is just my space so is super girly!

What have you done to make your space cosy, beautiful or inspiring?
I painted it in my favourite colour and searched high and low for a vintage 1920's filing cabinet so I could keep all my paperwork organised in style. I have pin boards, hooks and clips so I can be visually see all my inspiration around me.

How do you keep organized?
I start with a very organised space so I can find everything I need and be inspired my crafting supplies, then I get messy during a project and then have a big tidy up before I start the next big project. I have a big stash of craft supplies that are stored in clear containers on shelves in my room.

Any tips & tricks for organising supplies?
I group all my craft items into colours and keep them in clear containers. I hang scissors from hooks and have pots attached to the wall to keep my most used supplies to hand.

Which are your favourite possessions and are there any of your own creations on display?
My tolix chair, tailors dummy, vintage filing cabinet, tea trolley  and pink sewing machine. Yes, I have some of my crafts on display - pen pots, artwork, bunny jars, up cycled tea trolley.

How do you organise your inspiration and ideas?
I have a pin board  and a hanging clip rail for my ideas and multiple Pinterest boards.

Where do you look for inspiration?
I start with a colour palette and then get inspired by my craft supplies, magazines, Pinterest, flickr and the world around me.

If you had three wishes, what would you do to make it the dream craft space?
I would make it much bigger, add a big crafting table  and a vintage armoire so I could fill it with pretty glass jars full of craft supplies.
