New Craft Area!

In the midst of losing my mum, we were changing my crafty area!  It was a bit hectic to say the least!

Lots of pics to come!....

 Teeniest bit embarrassed by this one!  Lol - normally it looked tidier than this!  I also had a large cupboard behind me with crafting stash in it. 

So, take one gorgeous hubby.....add a great big pile of boxes....

 This was the beginning of shifting stuff around....I laughed when I saw this and noticed the plate on the floor...gonna blame the child!

 ...but I guess I need to fess up that the yoghurt pot was mine! As you can see, I literally stopped mid-colouring - hence the copics out of their box! 

 ooo the shame of it - how did I ever get my legs under the table?  I blame the crafty weekend - I got sooo many goodies!  

We thought we would put up one cupboard and just move stuff into it - then move onto the next cupboard...
Man at Work!

Work in progress....

This was day two....notice the different colour tshirt?  ...and more cupboards are up!

 ...little shake to test they stayed up....looking good!  

 First things in the cupboard?....Copics!!!! of stuff to go in cupboard! 

 Then we discovered our slight hitch - no not the one where Tony had to take off the socket because its an oldish house and they are surface mounted (they stick out!)....No, not the one where we discovered the radiator, which is under the table, didnt fit so we had to cut a chunk out the back of the cupboard....

This particular hitch was the lack of two cupboard doors! 

 Got the doors - then started loading the cupboards!...

Needed somewhere for my inspirations pics - these are things Josh has made and also cards other crafters have sent me.  Aspirational!

All doors present and correct!

STUFF!  These are my beads and stuff!

Yeah - more!

Lol - not a picture of the lizard!  More a picture of the cutting machines - behind the eclips is my ecraft!  Need to find a home for these - Gwim Weaper (the lizard) gets a bit puzzled by the noise!

Just about done now!  My room looks alot tidier now - in fact, its even tidier since this pic was taken.  YAY!

Yep - theres my little inspiration gallery x

Well, hopefully, now that Mum's funeral is done (terribly sad, but went well), I can get to do some crafting soon.  The girls from Aud Sentiments have been fabulous whilst I have been away - hugs to you all - and thanks to my lovely crafty mates who have sent me messages and love.
