Hiya everyone. Am late this morning. Been just putting some finishing touches to
my new craft space and got completely carried away lol.
We have a fresh challenge for you over at Totally Papercrafts today......
Thats right, there has to be a girl on your creation this week. Oooh I can just
hear your creative juices going into overdrive - maybe its an opportunity to use a new image or a favourite neglected old stamp! Can't wait to see what you come up with.
I've used two rather adorable images from Karen's Doodles. Initially my intention was to enter this into their doubling up challenge last week - but then I decided to upgrade my craft space so I blew out on that one lol.
Aren't they just adorable!! My 10year old daughter Emily is just starting to get a bit stroppy at times so I reckon her hormones are just starting to kick in. It's making me long for the days when she was a toddler rofl!!! These images just remind me of her time at day nursery and bring back so many memories!!
Since recovering with my HRT, my craft space has been driving me more nuts with each passing day as its been soooo hard to work in the dining room with no real designated space! Desperate to get back to blogging properly I took the plunge last Saturday and had a trip to Ikea in Leeds, West Yorkshire.
I have new shelving, cupboards and desk in a corner of the dining room now which means I won't have to clear everything away at Christmas time EVER again - whooo hoooooo!!!
and a side view......
I have a filing cabinet with 12x12 drawers - perfect for my 12x12 scrapbook papers and it just fits beautifully under the desk - like it was meant to be rofl.!! Pete was on his way home last Saturday when I bought everything. He walked into the house to be greeting by loads of boxes, stuff everywhere and me up to me eyeballs in instruction papers, nails and screws "What the chuffing 'eck you doing" or something to that effect was the first thing he said to me rofl. He was a little star though and finished helping me put it together as I was nearly done.
I love it - sometimes I just go and sit in there and I always pop in just before I go to bed and just before I go to work - sad or what pmsl. I don't think its sunk in yet that its mine - keep thinking I'm dreaming rofl. There's even room for the pupsters crate under the desk when he comes home in August!!!!!
I'll post more pics over the next few months as the room itself is finished. The walls opposite my desk and out of view are still awaiting wallpaper and Pete is plastering up the chimney breast as I type and a wood burning stove is planned... I might NEVER leave once its all done rofl.
Thanks for stopping by!!
