Nikki Joy eco-bags

Hello, my name is Nikki... 
and I'm a green-clubcard-point-aholic. 
Tell me I'm not alone!
I just love that feeling when Tesco says to you 
"Thanks for saving the planet by reusing your bags... Here's a point!"

The first step is recognising you have a problem... 
the second is embracing it and making it more beautiful.

Over the next month, I'll be creating and sharing my new range of reusable, fold-up-all-small-able beautiful eco bags, which will all be available for just £5 from my Nikki Joy Shop.




Perfect for the shops or the library or popping in your bicycle basket!

I hope you're having a lovely sunshiney week, whatever you're up to.

Planning a crafty corner...

With a wedding fast approaching, and looking forward to moving into my marital home, it's recently dawned on me that I will be acquiring a lot more space to use, but also that men just somehow don't see how fabric and sewing machines and canvases and cute books about nothing in particular can take up so much space.

So... I've been cruising the net for craft space inspiration
and there's some beauties out there!!

Look at all that space for lovely books and pretty things!
I love the quirky coloured chair.
using Ikea bookcases with burlap stapled into the back.

This sweet and simple space from Ikea Hackers is made from kitchen cabinets!
I love the simplicity and the fresh colours... 
but there's no way I could keep a craft space so... minimalist (as in tidy) 
I'm a total blizzard when I get going!

This is more work station that craft space
but I just love the fresh look of it and the little details that just make it so homely.
Go and check out the original post at Simply Kelly... the rest of the room is just too lovely!

Wow wow wow wow wow!!!
This post on Shop Runy Jean just had me squealing!
If Samm wants a happy wife, he'll forsake a spare bedroom in favour of this!

Anyone have any good tips on how to create an effective crafty spot in rather less space than this?
