I chose to make a bag, using a paper mache blank.
I coloured some white paper using Distress Ink and then randomly
stamped images over it.
The main image stamps are from Lili of the Valley.
Some of the flowers I made myself and others are from my stash.
The fun bit was making it in my new craft room!!
If you have seen those 'Hoarder' programmes on TV, my room
is a bit like that at the moment. I only have a small space on my desk.
The contents of the bedrooms surrounds me.
We had the carpet laid in the lounge and dining room yesterday, Tuesday.
At the same time, we had the decorators painting in the hall and the plumber,
replacing the rusty radiators in both bathrooms, with heated towel rails.
Along with the carpenter replacing the door handles!!
Another quiet day! But well worth it!
As I am writing this, the carpet fitters have arrived
to lay the carpets in the bedrooms and hall.
The painters and carpenter have retreated for a coffee break!
This should be their last day.
The electrician is coming later this afternoon, to finish putting up the lights.
Hopefully that will be the end to the mayhem
and we can then finally unpack everything!
I can't believe that we have only been here for 6 weeks!!
This is the other side. I can't do both sides the same. Too boring!
Hope you will pop over to the Winter Wonderland challenge,
to see the stunning makes from our lovely Snowflake Teamies.
We have a number of new members and all are amazing crafters.
Don't forget you have to be in it to win it!!
Thanks for taking the time to visit, as you know,
I love reading your lovely messages.
