Handily, this small bookcase I already had fitted perfectly into the alcove and it houses my envelopes and other packaging (as well as the soft toys I can't bear to get rid of!) The pail on the top shelf contains all my ribbons.
The cupboard under the alcove contains my stock of completed cards:
And my two Billy bookcases are home to my filing "system" and other bits and bobs:
It all fits in wonderfully!
The only messy bit is my craft desk, which is covered in various works in progress, but that's as it should be!
My computer would normally sit here too, but it's still relegated to the living room floor :o(
I have no excuse now for any lack of creativity!
