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

Ladies, I'm absolutely wrecked!!! I've done nothing but strip wallpaper and move boxes!! The house looks worse now than when we started, but will try to upload some progress pics tomorrow before we disconnect the computer. Final day in rented house is Sat, so all will be removed by Sun!!!!

Wow - what a project! I sympathise as my daughter has just had an extension done and we had rain in the lounge over several days during the winter with the ceiling being held up with huge jacks. lol

Thanks for following my blog and I shall enjoy seeing your house transforming too! Good luck!
