Good morning all
Happy WOYWW 387 to you.. if you want to know more do hop on over to Julia at The Stamping Ground to discover what the heck I'm talking about! lol
Basically.. a bunch of us crafters like to get together each Wednesday to share our desks.. whatever their condition (!) and show each other what we are making or have made during the previous week.
Well.. today my desk is IMMACULATE! Why? Well two reasons.. firstly my house is on the market and it needs to be pristine for when viewers come and secondly because I was at a retreat all weekend and I took LOADS of stash with me and I haven't got around to unpacking it all yet..so its tucked away out of sight for my photo and when a viewer comes around I shove it in a large cupboard! lol
So without further ado.. here is my spotless craft room.. drink it all in.. once I have a buyer it'll soon revert to the mess it usually is..lol
Now, some of you may remember that last week my dear husband was half way through painting my kitchen.. (again 'cos we're marketing the house) and I promised you a looksee at it finished..so here it is before
and here it is completely finishd..it took him 2 loooong days but since we've done it we have had lots more viewings booked so it was worth it. We even have a second viewing booked on Thursday so keep your fingers crossed for me! Even if it doesn't sell at least it is a whole heap better. It's pale grey in real life but it looks white in this picture..
Finally I guess you'd like to see what I have been up to since last week.. well as I mentioned, I was away on a scrapbooking retreat at the weekend. Three days of sheer peace and quiet from all the hum drum things in life and LOADS of laughter.. and wine.. lets not forget the wine..lol .. oh and cake..and chocolate! Just what the Dr ordered after a stress filled few weeks with my Mum. (My sister was looking after her while I had my break) so I had a blast.. and managed 11 layouts in total. Less than I normally manage but a decent number regardless.. so I'll show you a few here but I'll save a few for other weeks when I have less to show. So here goes:
and finally here are my Halloween decorations with a very dodgy looking pumpkin carving! Don't laugh..especially all you Americans out there who are all but professional at these things! Lol. I literally did it in about 5minutes flat because it was almost dark and I wanted to get it out there quick smart so it is what it is...
I got the skeleton from good old Poundland and I made the little Halloween canvas a few weeks back
So..that's another week in my life.. I'm off now to see what you've all been up to too.
