Warning, warning, warning - picture heavy post!!!!
Well I'm slowly climbing out of the pit that I dug for myself and am determined to get back to my colouring / making. I'm still not sure exactly where I am going with my layouts, but it's a start even if a small one.
I sat and made a card or two today - yippee!!
Firstly I think I'll do the card and then the update on the building works.
So me card:
Detail of image:
The arty farty:
Stamp Boutique : Funtime Rosie - coloured with Promarkers, Copics and chalks.
Memory Box, Die-namics
Charm, twine, chipboard embellishment - all from my many boxes.
A challenge or two:
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Child's Play
Finally the building works - have I said that we've now had another planning application approved? Hmmm, can't remember so please forgive if I am repeating myself.
We have had approval to create a new floor above our two garages, which will give a 22 x 12ft room this will be hubby's hobby room - he's into trains y'know - which means that the room we have created in the just finished extension will be Emily's new bedroom. Not that she wants it!! We explained it to her the other night and there were tears! I'm sure once she sees it finished it will be different, but at the moment she is not keen.
The upshot of the new building is that all our current work is going at a slower pace, as some of the space is needed for storage for the things coming out of the garage. Therefore at the moment we are in a bit of a lull - the quiet before the storm maybe? Who knows, but it is nice to be peaceful again!
So here are some pictures of where we are now.
Stripping wallpaper from where the new door will be - what fun!!!
Look how much stuff has come out of the room! This is the door to our current 3rd bedroom - which will be a hallway (eventually!).
The other side of that door - it used to be a room! The plastic sheeting is there to keep the rest of hubby's stuff safe from the dust.
Dah, dah - new room!!!!
Under inspection (please do not notice the bag of crisps in her hand - bad mother, slap wrist!!)
That's how things stand at the moment.
I'll be back soon,
