A true addict shouldn't hold anything back...

So.. yesterday's post was mild.. I didn't show you underneath and around... oh dear.. I really DO have a lot of work to do.. that is todays plan, and as an added incentive to myself, I will post an 'after' pic by the end of the day.  I know my Mum watches my blog.. oh this is bad.. sorry Mum xxx LOL

So.. First pic is my trolley of current projects/handy things which kind of got out of hand with purchases being dumped in there.. yes that will get tidied up today.. The bag next to it isn't mini stuff.. it's old clothes ready for the op shop.

Now.. in the mess is also a huge collection of motorbike helmets (hmm perhaps 8?), gloves and boots that I really must either get rid of.. or store somewhere...  this little area is designed to be the 'door' to stop my dog getting into my craft area LOL - yes it needs sorting (I have already started on that bit and lots has been removed!)

The pierce.. has things stacked in and under it.. the bookshelf to the left, full of books (of course) and some mini stuff, helicopters on top.... and boxes of handy things. See the flowers? They were chucked out the front of a shop that was closing down.. well you never know.. they could be useful?

Under the homestead.. various bits of furniture I have bought still in boxes.. and handy packaging for stonework.. oh and the famous mars bar shelf on the left I'm storing papers in to keep them nice & flat, gosh I even kept a bra.. what the?? That can go out..

Those drawers are full of mini stuff.. as are the baskets, boxes and red bag on the right.. on the left is a pile of stuff that I'm not sure what to do with - things from my old car that I don't want to put in my new car.. and old school work I don't know if I should keep or not.. and a bear I bought from work because I thought at the time it was a bargain.. I'll give it to the KMart tree this year or something :) A collection of digeridoos.. so aussie ;-) - oh .. see the shiney blue thing on the far right? That's a plastic sheet to protect my carpet if I ever find room to craft in here. Of course, every mini person should have.. a softball bat too.. (I should make a find the game out of this!)

Under the other house (which is sitting in front of a bir door.. so I can't get in there) is my Lisa's cottage unopened.. and the front of said house.. and other bits.. 

 Oh.. one more thing.. a while back Kez bought a stationary cabinet.. I thought yes!! What a great idea.. so.. I copied her idea.. it's a pigsty.. - bottom half.. (getting desperate for room things have just been chucked in there)

Top half... at least all my glues and stuff are in one area.. and the 2nd shelf is mainly 'kits'

I found something tidy!!!!!

Guess I should get busy.....
A note to Andee, if you read this.. you have now been officially warned just what this mini little hobby can turn into.. ;-) and I KNOW I'm not alone! Welcome to the club hahaha!


  1. You are in a similar situation as most of us miniaturists. The trouble is, once you tidy up you don't find the things you need next. When looking for them again you start a new mess. If you through out anything, later you will need it and be sorry. But we do have a wonderful time while we tidy up, finding things we already forgot we had.

    A mini hug, Drora

  2. Oh boy, this post was an absolute hoot! But you certainly have a TON of stuff! I can't believe it. So far all of my stuff is mostly in one container, and I know I need a bigger one. I'm sure that will grow. Or I could put all my other craft stuff away and just have all the mini stuff needed out. Looking forward to the after photos!


  3. Haha nice to see some more of you coming out ;-)
    Rest assured Andrea.. this is not a space-saving hobby!!

  4. No, it is definitely not. I'm just amazed at how much you have there. LOL!
