I've finally got round to creating a blog!! It's only taken me forever!! You'll have to bear with me as it will take me a while to figure out how to do everything!!

New house

FINALLY got the keys for our new house on Wed, so not a lot of crafting going on, but a lot of creative thinking!! It's a total dump!!

This will be my lounge, but currently is set up as a kitchen

This will be my kitchen but currently looks like something off the set of Oliver!!!!

I have a lovely but badly decorated hallway, so had great fun pulling the wooden panels off the walls
to reveal ....................................................

this gorgeous wallpaper. We're trying to remove it v carefully so when I make the scrapbook of "Changes to our house", I can use it as backing paper!!

We have a beautiful stained glass window in the hallway too. Slightly ruined by the mank that surrounds it, but it'll be pretty again one day soon!!!

This is the tiny bedroom upstairs. Not likely to be a bedroom, but should be about the right size for the computer

This is currently in the corner of the master bedroom. Not for long methinks!!

And this is going to be my craft room. How much stash do you think I'll be able to get into that cupboard?

Don't think I'll be doing much craftying over the next few motnhs as I'll be run off my feet trying to get this place sorted, but there'll be lots of updates on here and I will still squeeze some crafty time in.
Hope you're all enjoying the weekend xx

Promarkers and Tilda

Howdy folks,
Been having blogger probs again this week so haven't uploaded much. Also had 30 reports I wanted to write before we got the keys to the new house, so not been crafting much.

Have finally had a play, both with promarkers and Tilda! I've had both of these items for quite a while and never got round to using them, and set myself the challenge of doing so following a thread over at Docrafts. Not turned them into cards yet, but whaddya think?

This was a new stamp that I got, and the pirate one I've had for ages and just never used.

Think I might be a bit hooked!!!

I also finally got round to making new new address cards. They're not quite finished, but neither is the exchange!!! Another problem has come up at the last minute and we're now not sure if we'll be getting the keys tomorrow or not!! Joy!! I hope we like this house cos after all the hassle we've had, there's no way I'm ever moving again!!!!

The stamps are from Paper Artsy and they are stamped onto all the scraps of paper I didn't want to move to the new house. The blue sky is sprayed with aqua lagoon cosmic shimmers and the paper making the hill is Kate Knight (I think!). I will be adding a little road sign onto the front with the name of the road on it, but don't want to do that until I've actually got the keys in my hand. Just in case!!!
