Bosses Birthday card

I needed birthday card for the boss this week, my mojo is virtually non-existent so I CASed this card I had pinned on Pinterest by Nichol Heady


I’m really quite pleased with the result

New Craft Room

A good while ago I said I’d post pictures of my craft room when it was finished ... well after a very busy Christmas break decorating ... its not 100% complete but its nearly there!


There really wasn’t much wrong with my room before but it was very dark and I had some serious lighting issues out of daylight hours.

So Christmas Eve, we started stripping ... wallpaper


We took the walls back as far as we could, but they were still in terrible condition so we had to re-paper.  Hubby (Mick) did almost all the work ...



Re-papering and painting

The room is so much lighter now and once I get used to the space and move the rest of my stash in (I can’t wait to get organised) I know it will be even more functional than it was before.  We’ve still got some work to do, Mick is going to attach a small shelf going all the way round the room, then build me a new ink storage unit and I’m hoping a ribbon and button one too – then we replace the Ikea 4x4 unit for an Ikea 5x5.

What a fantastic Christmas Present!!!
