Craft room makeover and a card

Hi all
Well I am now a official empty nester after our youngest son moved out to live with his girlfriend. And as sadly I lost my beloved Sam at the end of June you an imagine how quiet and tidy the house is!
This is one of the last photos taken of Sam and Peter. Sam always liked to sit up, we think he thought he was one of the boys :-)

Anyway I have spent the last week painting his room to be the new guest room as luckily all the boys keep popping back and this led me to finally properly sorting out my craft room.
These are some before photos

So not too bad as I am a tidy crafter but also not matching as I have built my collection of free storage over the years. So on Thursday it was a trip to Ikea

Which then lead to this

Along with a matching work top to follow on from the oak unit I already had

Filled up with red and black boxes and drawers and all labelled

So I know have a bigger desk, matching storage and a guest room!
And this is the card I made just before I moved everything around

Ingredients used -
Mama Elephant 'Birthday wishes' stamps for sentiments
Lawn Fawn 'stitched circles' die
Glitter card from stash
Docrafts - gems

Having a crafty day with friends today and then will be catching up with your blogs x
