My New Craft Room

Good morning Crafters,
Well we have moved, decorated, unpacked and I have a craft room all in the space of two weeks :o)
I am a happy bunny today because I can now show you my craft room, it's not completely finished yet, there's a few shelves to go up and other bits but here it is...

I put a throw over my chair because it was blue and didn't match :o)

I'm so happy, until now I crafted in the dining room on a pine sideboard so it's great to have a whole room all to myself. 
Time to catch up with my DT cards now... I can't wait! 
See you later, hugs


Hello, I'm back online yippee!

Oooh I have missed my blog and all of you too.
 The move went very well despite the snowy weather, we managed it all in a day, we were totally shattered but we did it! I've been busy painting & decorating whilst waiting for the internet to be connected and unpacking boxes, it's been great fun (I know I'm mad but I've really enjoyed it)
Anyway my craft room is painted, I've unpacked half my stuff so far, I'm just waiting for the delivery of a new desk so I can get card making again.
     See you all very soon
