|That little house there is the blooming of my lovely's latest project!|
Entitled to it's very own blog post apparently!
I've had a very little shop update today.
On a rather exciting note, I purchased one of These
& now I am putting snap domes on everything!
My brain is going over load for ideas at the moment, I only wish I had some scientific device to visually record these before I fell off to sleep and forgot them!
On another exciting note, I have a wee advertorial in the back of the latest extra curricular issue
My pic is a bit crappy, but with time and experience I'm sure it will (hopefully) improve!
Hope you are all enjoying this amazing April, with it's golden sun & stunning mornings!

The last few weeks have been total CHAOS in our house. It started as Ged & decided to destroy both our wardrobes & the girls room wardrobe creating a a space for an inside loo. Our current one is in the ultra cold & scary laundry. As one thing leads to another we ended up having to re-gib the girls room first so that we could get a sheet of board out from behind the pile of gib to make new architrave's for the new loo doorway...mental logic I know! So the girls have spent a few weeks bed hopping from our bed to the couch, big sisters bed, big brothers bedroom floor....the list goes on!
I love the feeling of completing a do-up around the house, but I don't love the stressed out chaos of the house during this time! Especially as were doing it all our selves so we can only do wee bits here and there, as well as what the budget will allow.
Most of house has bora somewhere! The girls room was no exception, we have had to replace (Ged has made them himself) all the window & door architraves, all the skirting & the window sill.
So now we have one fully insulated room, yep floor ceiling & walls!
I still don't know about what will go on the walls. Since taking these pics I've put the girls plaster casts of my preggy tum above each of their beds, I'm sure as time goes by it will fill up with something!
Behind Fleur's headboard here used to be a huge wardrobe door.
It's amazing how much the pink of the glass is highlighted since we painted the window frames. We still haven't painted the lower sashes as they need to be planed and new glass put into the right one......onto the list that goes!
A couple of pics of the 'doing up' process.
Next mission is our room, hall way & new shiney loo! Whipee.....sort of!

My Lovely has grown a rather impressive beardy weirdy.
I have to admit, I love it. It reminds me of Spike Milligan.
So I think Mr Beard needs a cheese cutter to match?
What ya reckon?
Only problem is, I can't seem to find one ANYWHERE?

A wee bit of crafting has been going on in the whare lately, not nearly as much as I'd like, but as we've been doing some pretty major alterations/ re-decorating, anything is better than nothing.
I have a few markets coming up over the next 3 months. the flyer above I am particularly excited about Alt Shift Craft is a very cool 'craft outside the square' kinda market!
So if you're around Palmy on May the 4th, pop on in!

Where were we before the computer?
It's just so easy to find the answer now days?
The answer to pretty much anything!
Remember when we taped our favourite songs off the radio, carefully trying to 'pause' out the ads?
video recording our favourite music vids during the weekend?
Going to the library for 'a book to answer that query?'
It's just so easy now isn't it!
And in the middle of all of this...where has patience gone?
I'm sitting here....
enjoying the ability ot look up pretty much any thing I want right now
Life is funny eh?
