Oh My! The big clear out has begun. We have started clearing out the study ahead of the work I mentioned on here a week or so back. Our builder is due to begin on 30th Feb so we thought we'd better begin moving our stuff. So I've been clearing some of the books and albums off the shelves and passing them to hubby up in the loft to be boxed for the duration. I'm now shattered and we've done just a tiny amount of what needs doing. The plan is to put the things we definitely wont' need up there first then we can move on to finding temporary homes for the stuff we're going to want closer to hand. I reckon this is the easy bit - wait till it comes to shifting and finding space for our desks and computer gear in the spare room.... I'm not looking forward to being in there - I'm used to spending time in here, where we have two decent sized windows and lots of daylight (well, when there is daylight to be had!), whereas the spare room is on the other side of the house and doesn't get nearly so much light.
It will be worth it when its all done, It will be worth it when its all done, It will be worth it when its all done....
I think there will be an overspill into the guest room - something I'd like to avoid, just in case we get visitors before we're all sorted out again.
I'm looking at my craft stuff on the tall bookcase deciding which things I can put away - it's a long time since I played with my beads so I think I can box those up for the loft for a start.
Anyway, enough of crafty clearance for now.
Here's the belated birthday card I made for Net:
paper: Basic Grey, Sentiment is pc generated
Ribbons, flowers, lace, card candy etc mainly Creative Treasures, other bits from stash
I made the organza ribbon thing using my new mini bowdabra
One more card for today, another made for the recent Funky Hand C&C TV programmes:
Papers from Funky Hand's "Craft the Year Away" CD, I cut the flowers from one of the paper designs and added Glamour Dust to the centres.
Buttons are also from Funky Hand - there are lovely colour matched ribbons and buttons for each of the colour themes on the CTA collection. There are new things being added to the Funky Stash section on the website all the time.
Twine is from my stash
