My gorgeous fiancé bought me an amazing gift for my birthday last month; a new Lapdog!
Not a cute and lovable new pet; but a versatile crafting tray that sits comfortably in my lap. It’s no substitute for an actual dog, but it is an amazing product, and I don’t know how I ever lived without it!
The tag line is “The Craft Anywhere Tray”, which would be true as long as you weren’t leaving the country, the tray would definitely need its own suitcase!
When it arrived, it was a lot bigger than I expected it to be. At first I thought it was going to be too bulky, but when I filled it with my bits and pieces and actually started to use it, I realised that it needs to be the size that it is in order for it to function as a crafting tool.
The soft cushion is really comfortable, I can sit in front of the TV and watch my favourite shows whilst I make up orders. The plush velvet fabric on the bottom also means it doesn’t slide around, which is perfect for keeping my pesky beads in place!
The best thing about the tray is the storage compartments; and it’s really a credit to the designers as each compartment is useful and it all fits together so perfectly!
I’ve organised my supplies so I can make up my most popular pieces quickly, I keep my best selling charms on the left, namely my Big Sister Necklaces, and Bridesmaid and Flower Girl Jewellery.
On the display tray in the center, I keep the findings that I use for almost every piece of jewellery, and my glass pearl beads, so I can quickly access all of bits and bobs.
I keep my tools in the handy section on the right, I am forever putting them down and losing them so this is perfect for me!
The back section is ideal for storing my card inserts for my Birthstone Jewellery, I also keep my phone in this section, so I can read my messages and work through my Etsy orders.
I actually use one of the storage boxes for unusable materials and junk, I use the other one to store my finished pieces that are ready for packing.
