There’s a chance that you’re not actually reading the introduction to this DreamBox Review and skipped right to the video, the Scrapbox offers, or photos, I really don’t blame you. Getting to peek inside other peoples craft rooms is a hobby of mine too! It’s probably a big hobby for a lot of crafters, judging by the repins I get. At least I know that I’m in good company 😉.

Can you identify the precise moment my husbands butt popped out of his trousers and I had to re-edit 6 times to cover!?!
Being creative is the most important aspect of my life. Having lived with so much doubt and confusion about how I wanted to live a happy successful life when growing up, discovering crafts and creativity was a mind-blowing, life-affirming moment and just pure magic.
That’s why every day I need some quality time with my supplies. I love to consider Crafting as a big part of my self-care and self-care is necessary for everyone. Being the best version of you is the best gift you could give yourself and your family.
It took me a long time to rediscover the world of crafts. Seriously. I am a country bumpkin from Northern Ireland and discovering a scrapbooking magazine on a visit to the big city was the turning point!
The DreamBox Review; More About Me And My Medical Conditions:
Around the time that happened, I started suffering from mystery symptoms after a really really bad infection. I ended up being pretty much bed bound for a few YEARS. Yes, YEARS. I’ve been housebound ever since that time and only really leave the house for medical appointments. My mystery illness ended up being a connective tissue disorder and a seizure disorder. Meaning that I can dislocate my joints very easily and the seizures make it happen.
Being stuck in bed all of the time, whether sleepy or not, the walls get dull. The specs on the wall really start to stand out, you know what time it is because of the way the shadows hit a certain part of the room and you slowly start to lose your mind.
There is also only so much TV and wall watching that one can do. With your body not being able to do the things that you tell it too can be very difficult to come to terms with.
For instance, I get too tired to chew my food and my jaw now threatens to dislocate if I attempt to eat a baguette. Sometimes I’m too weak to lift drinks and have to drink through my reusable straws.
The Dreambox Review; Being Chronically Ill and Being Creative:
Even though I experienced that type of exhaustion, I would also have GREAT days where I could actually sit upright supported by pillows. You’re thinking, how hard is that?
Well, like a baby’s head, when I’m tired, my head starts to just list to one side. So, during the times I could be upright, I wanted to learn a new creative skill.
I took my very first online art class, I learned how to draw, how to paint, how to letter, then I got published a few months after that… and I have never looked back.
From then on I vowed to learn a new creative skill every year and it’s been a real journey to get to this point. I’m very well managed by my GP, I’ve got a good balance with my medication, so give me a cat and some easily accessible craft supplies and I am very happy with my calm life.
Staying Creative When You’re Chronically Ill
My continued creativity is down to easy access to my supplies and the fact that I just feel serene when I’m being arty and also a little bit farty. I’m probably best known for planners, art journals, and a lot of home decor crafts. I LOVE art journaling and using lots of pastel shades, colourful supplies and scrapbooking ephemera.
My Previous Craft Room Setup
Before I got this DreamBox from CreateRoom (formerly known as, The Original Scrapbox Company), I was using a very large Ikea Kallax unit with boxes. What you need to know though is that I get very tired, very quickly. So I can grab my supplies, do a bit of crafting and then tap out. Putting the supplies away is where it gets tricky for me. I normally end up jamming them in a box and wondering why I can never find anything…
For years, I’ve been sharing decluttering guides and regular blog content to try and encourage me to organize my craft unit. Years. And it may have been a box or two but my decluttering efforts quickly went down the toilet.
DreamBox Review; An Amazing Craft Cabinet
I’ve never actually been able to organize everything in my craft room the exact way that I would like it due to the wrong types of storage for my budget, but this DreamBox from CreateRoom is THE best.
Those wrong types of storage I was talking about; the large Ikea Kallax cubby unit. It became a black hole for my supplies because they were hidden in deep totes. That’s useless and actively discourages creativity.
My supplies were out of sight, out of mind and so was my creativity for self-care. Something had to change.Claire
Just looking at it makes me smile and that’s how your creative haven should be. It should be a space to dream, to smile and make a mess that’s a heck of a lot easier to tidy because every item has its own space. A place for everything and everything in its place.
Not only is the unit itself very sleek and functional; when the supplies are all in the unit it’s an absolute dream to look at! There’s nothing better than being able to display all of your favourite craft supplies because that way, you enjoy looking at them and you’re less likely to forget that you own something or where it’s located! Not to mention, that promo code. It’s like a little icing on the cake.
The Original Scrapbox Company’s DreamBox Review | The Delivery Process:
Delivery of the DreamBox from CreateRoom (previously The Original Scrapbox Company) took between 8 and 10 business days and everything arrived in one massive crate. I was thrilled when it arrived.
Word of warning; it will be too big to go through your front door, you will need somewhere safe for it to live before you can open it and take everything out.
My husband was in charge of opening the crate and taking the contents out and then upstairs to my craft room. He was immediately ecstatic because inside of the crate was a rubber mallet. So for him, it’s all about the free mallet. It was like Christmas morning for us both. Thanks, to CreateRoom!
The DreamBox Review; Accessories
Available options of the Dreambox + discount code info; HHMUK100 is the current working code!
‘Totes’ include plastic trays and organizers.
Please note that I have package 3, a crown w/ light on my unit which arrived with an American plug from The Original Scrapbox Company. I was unable to get an adapter in time for the video but this is how yours will look when you switch the light on:
The additional tables are also easy to insert into the shelving space and are incredibly sturdy. I personally love the fact that everything locks and lines up so perfectly! Every Dreambox probably looks this good though. That’s how much I love it!
Dreambox Review: Building Your DreamBox Unit:
Mr Heart Handmade was very impressed with how the unit was all organized within the crate. Overall, it is very easy to find and gather everything before building starts.
The building process itself was straight forward. He read the instructions and said that it wasn’t difficult to build compared to other flat pack furniture that he has built in the past.
More points were scored because the quality is really, really good. The wood is very strong, after buying flat-pack furniture exclusively for a few years, I had forgotten how truly sturdy a quality piece of furniture feels. When building, my husband was happy as larry, every hole lined up with what it was supposed to and it was a piece of cake. It took a while, but it was an enjoyable experience for him to drink wine, listen to his music, and be left in peace to build. The only problem was all of the individual little shelves, but with a glass of wine, it didn’t take too long apparently.
Dreambox Review | The Verdict:
I would give the entire process a 4.8 out of 5 stars. They’ve lost part of a star because I had to go and get an adapter; every other experience I’ve had with companies sending me European plugs, always included an adapter. The biggest thing that I’m excited about now, is the fact that I get the share the best discount for CreateRoom so you can save $100 at checkout.

Everything else though has been outstanding. I couldn’t be more thrilled! My crafting has definitely increased and my time in the craft room, in general, has increased. It has gone back to being my happy place, instead of a nightmare mess space that is impossible to stay on top of.
I can’t wait for you to experience the same thing.
