After months of blood,sweat and tears the extension is complete and I have my new craft room finished. I have to say it was harder than I thought it would be, but thanks to my fantabaroonie parents we got there in the end. Huge thank you to my dad for running the whole thing and a big hug to my mum for helping out and telling me it would all be worth it in the end, when I was knocking down walls,eating dust, constantly hoovering it up and having a 5 minute breakdown on a daily basis. I couldnt have done it without you. x
Anyway, onto the craft room. I sat down last night all pleased with myself and thought I would put a card together. Oh! Where did I put everything????? I decided before the room was complete that I would be super duper tidy and keep it that way - start how you mean to go on, so I put all my stash in their new homes. Well, I tell you it took me forever to make what should be a 5 minute card. So, I have now changed my mind and I shall do what we all do (dont we?) and start with a big desk and then have foam pads, card cutters, scissors, glue etc... all around me and just have a little tiny workspace, at least I will know where everything is. I didnt realise until last night, that actually I am best at organised chaos. It is great to be in blogland again and just have a relaxing evening making cards.
Thanks to everyone who emailed me over the last couple of months, I appreciate that you took the time to see how I was getting on - hugs to you!!!
I made this little pot of flowers to put in my new bedroom, it reminds me when I wake up in the morning, that I love my job and as my mum would say, these are definately my kind of flowers, as they dont need watering. Also, Poppi comes in, in the mornings and either takes them out and rearranges them or brings her dolls in and uses them as umbrellas for them.
Supplies are: brads,ribbon,flowers and photo hanger - poppicrafts. paper - american crafts. Rub-ons - doodlebug.
Thanks for popping by.
