As I have received a few emails asking me whether my Craftroom is ready and when I'll be crafting again, I thought I would just post a response on my blog, so that you are all in the picture.
I am pleased to report, that I can see some light at the end of the tunnel. The carpenter has been so busy with other orders, that mine somehow got put on the back seat. I was not pleased, but it has been a good exercise for me i.e. learning to control this impatience of mine! When I want something, I want it NOW.... uh, hellooooooooooooo.... life does not work that way, does it?
The carpenter is coming around on Monday and Tuesday next week to sort out my Craftroom and a few other bits and pieces I have commissioned him to do. So...... hopefully, I'll be able to start crafting by the weekend, once I've unpacked all my delicious goodies... yay!!! It'll be like visiting a craft store all over again when I start unpacking those boxes :)
As I don't have anything new to share, I thought I'd just post a few pics of some favourites cards / crafty items of mine that I've made over the years. I hope you like them as much as I do...
I just love the colours of the card above. That Tilda was kindly stamped and sent to me by a friend.
I just love this stamp from Lily of the Valley. It is a real favourite of mine.
I love the beautiful paper in the background, reminded me of strawberries.
Such a cute Tilda, which I can't wait to re-acquaint myself with.
Something totally different. This card was commissioned by a friend for an Aunt of hers.
Another style which I plan to rediscover one of these days. I think the ladies in our
complex will go for this type of card more.
I also plan to make more of these To Do / Grocery pads, as they've been very popular in the past.
They also make cute little desktop gifts for the office worker.
I just adore Elisabeth Bell's images and can't wait to wipe the dust off this cute Penpal.
Life in the new house is just so busy and the weekends seem to be getting shorter and shorter. There is always something to do or hang. I've decided to have some additional brick-paving done in the front, so that's also being done next week.
We are in the throes of Autumn in South Africa and it has been the warmest Autumn that I can remember. In Cape Town, over the past weekend, our temperatures soared to 30 degrees celsius. I couldn't believe it, as I've always known it to get really cold and wet after the Easter weekend. I was just telling my friend in the UK the other day that I think their Summer has moved here, as they have not had much of a Summer at all...
I hope you are all well. Would love to hear what you've been up to, as I am hoping to be back in my craft seat within the next week or so.... so please watch this space :)
Thanks so much for popping by!
