Mirror, Mirror On The Wall!!!

Hi there, it's me here!!
I am never moving house ever again!!
What a nightmare!!
We have had even more problems with the internet, (AOL), as we upgraded to
Windows 10 before we moved. Apparently, AOL was not compatible with it.
They then had an upgrade to download, but it did not work for us.
To cut a very long story short, 3 days and 3 different technicians,
they finally sorted us out! Well nearly......technician number 2, messed up 
our main computer so bad, hubby lost all saved emails!
Then I had lost my access to all my blogs!!
Another 4 hours later, all was ok!!

We have been really busy and have got my craft room ready for the carpet to
go down and then all the woodwork to be replaced.
We bought all the shelving and work tops with us.

On Monday morning at 8am, (ugh!!) we have carpenter, decorators and 
a plumber starting work here. 
They have said it will take around 2 weeks or just over. 
On Tuesday, an electrician will also start! 
Plenty of tea and biscuits me thinks!!

It should be a bit of fun too, as the carpenter is an Australian, 
from the same area as my husband! So we had a lot of Australian
strange words being used, when they came to give us a quote.

This is a mirror I made before we move and has been sitting is draft
for a while.

I painted it with Paper Artsy Chalk Paint I bought from the Craft Barn.
Along with my favourite mask, Honeysuckle, from Imagination Crafts.
Also the diamond shapes that were from Tando .


The die in the background is from Sizzix. The name escapes me and 
all my dies are buried in the spare bedroom.

The blue flowers I made but the others were bought from Hobbycraft.


Well that is it for now. I am doing my first craft fair up here on the 1st March.
It's in a hotel on the beach. So I am hoping my room will be ready in
time for me to make some more stock.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me all the wonderful, supportive messages.
you are such amazing friends.

Biggest hugs,
Carolxxxx
