Craftroom Update

Sooooo exciting!!!!!! The wall to split stepsons room went up on Wednesday, the lighting was sorted yesterday and today the plastering was done!!!! Lovely joiner is coming back on Wednesday to put the skirting and architraves on and hang the doors and then I can be let loose to paint and then fill with lovely Ikea goodies and then all my gorgeous stash!!

A few piccies of the newly plastered room:

This used to be the doorway to stepsons bedroom - his door is now the one to the left

My doorway

From inside loking out of the doorway

Lovely area for lots of stash!

My gorgeous light fitting

I can't wait until it's all done and I'll post some more pics at each stage.

Thanks for looking.

10th Wedding Anniversary

Again - not mine!

I made this card for a work colleague who's 10th anniversary is coming up soon. She wanted something mainly white and fairly simple to give to her husband and this is what I came up with.

My colleague was really pleased with the card - let's hope her husband likes it too!

Something really excting happened today ... the wall that splits stepsons bedroom and gives me a craft room went up!! Electrics are going in Saturday and the plastering is being done on Sunday. A few days for the plaster to dry and then the doors and skirting go on and then it's all mine!!!!!!!

Thanks for looking.

Box Frame

Tomorrow is my great nephew's (how old does that make me sound??!!) 'thanksgiving' - kind of like a christening but not as religious apparently! I couldn't think of an appropriate card to make so I made him this box frame instead!

I've seen a few of these on the internet including some made by my lovely Stampin Up pal Victoria.

It was quite easy to make and I'm going to make one for my craft room when it's done :))

Sorry I haven't been around for a while. I have had such a busy time recently and was soooo looking forward to the half term holiday when I was going to get down to some long awaited crafting but then last Saturday I had a phone call that my mum had had a heart attack. Mum lives at the east coast so I can't just 'pop over' to see her so I have been quite worried as you can imagine. Me and hubby went over sat evening to see her in Louth and all was good. A mild attack, rest for 5 days then home - phew! Then the next day, its worse than they thought and they moved her to Castle Hill in Hull for a stent to be fitted. OK could have been worse! Then Monday, they do an angiogram instead of the stent and it's worse still and now mum has to have a triple bypass! I went (with my sis) to Hull Tuesday to see her and she was OK considering! Mum came home today with her sis looking after her and has to go back for the op in 2 months. So not much crafting done in the end!

Anyhow there is one card to show and a box frame but I've not taken the pics yet so I'll post them tomorrow.

Thanks for popping over.
