We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Ta Da!

It has taken me nearly 3 days to put my craft room back together, but I am so pleased with it I'm going to relish the near perfect orderliness for 24 hours before I get stuff out!  It's clean and bright and airy, in very neutral colours.  I've got carpet tiles so should I have a little spillage (!), replacement will be no problem.

The room has had a couple of pressies from friends, some very fragrant stocks (divine scent), and some paper bunting - love it!

So here are some pics before it turns into a real (messy) craft room!

New desk is smaller so I'm going to have to try and keep it a bit tidy!

The book shelves I already had, but they have now been better organised.

A smaller desk means I can have a second, higher, work surface (to alleviate  my neck problems!), which is also on wheels, so I can push it around.

New unit, which is fab, as now all the other stuff has a place.

Wider view ...

Check out the bunting!

My friend made it from sheet music and dictionary pages, with cut out lettering, strung onto rick-rack ribbon.

And because this week's challenge over at the Craft Barn is all about bunting, I'm going to submit my friend's bunting - and if perchance the random number thingy picks it, then I will pass on the prize!

Happiness just is!
