I'm still here

Morning folks.....yes I am still here and don't want to tempt fate but things are ticking along nicely...have managed to get lots of stuff moved into the new cubbyhole and it's beginning to look a little bit like a craft room although still  has that "hit by a bomb" look but as they say I can see the wood for the trees now and hopefully I will be able to clear some space to get  my DT stuff done today although it's going to be really strange working here and I must admit I am a little bit sad.....the old cubbyhole is looking a tad abandoned. I know it's going to be quite emotional when it is completely cleared and I come out and shut the door for the last time.....and what I can't fathom out......I have more space in the new cubby why am I struggling to fit everything in....wish I had bought more shelves but another day out to Ikea.....don't even go there.

And surprise surprise I have a card to niece is leaving work on maternity leave and her colleagues asked me to make a card with a huge bump.....happy to oblige

Papers: MME....Wild Asparagus
Bloom & Grow
Image: Pink Petticoat....Pretty Lola Rose
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat....Alphas Tiny Typed
American Crafts Thickers
It's looks as though it's going to be another gorgeous off to get the washing on the line...a quick cuppa outside with my birdie friends and then  "The Budster" and I are off for our morning stroll.....believe me he's been keeping his head under the radar lately......nowhere to be seen when there is work to do but he seems to be taking a bit of a shine to the new crafty space.....more space for him to chill out but that may change by the time I squeeze everything in.....catch up with you all tomorrow for a brand new challenge on Polkadoodles.
Hugs Kath xxxxxxx

Kath this is looking great, just give me your order and I will go to Ikea for you....My hubby is coming to Dundee this weekend and next weekend for some parties...he would bring them through and you can meet him....just a thought, I would be more than happy to do this for you my friend. Love the Card as always. Hugs Avril xxx

Carol said...

The card is perfect Kath, bloom & grow papers must have been made for cards like this!!
The old cubby is looking rather sad.....but hey the new one's bound to be fab and surely there must be enough space! :) :) although my theory is even if i had a massive room, i would still manage to fill it and i'm sure you will too......

Have a great day..

Kat said...

Great card Kath. I love that paper too. I'm always using it. Love your new craft cubbyhole. My daughter and family just moved house last Friday and they were at Ikea on Tuesday. Scared to ask how they got on!! Beautiful day here north of Aberdeen too.

Have a lovely day, Kat x

Kath my room is looking fab.....wish I had a room like this....and what a lovely card.


Dolly said...

Love this card Kath it's perfect, how you've decoupaged the bump, great idea. The cubbyhole is looking a bit lonely, you could always rent it out to holidaying crafters, a crafty retreat! :)xx

Pumpy said...

Julie said...

Gorgeous card Kath, hope you've got the new craftroom all sorted soon!

Angelo said...

Oh, Kath, I love your cubbyhole. Moving stuff around always takes time, but you'll be at the end soon. Slow, but steady, you know :)

The card you made for your niece is lovely!! You are just so clever getting all the right details.

Hugs, Kristin :)

That card is adorable! I am so interested in watching your progress in getting your area set up. I have loved all things Scottish, English, Irish since I was a girl. Your descriptions of your morning with your cuppa outside, hanging out the wash, and your walk with your doggie all warm my heart, as I imagine it in my mind's eye. All my life I wanted to visit....but it didn't happen and now I continue to enjoy hearing about life in your part of the world!!

Tab said...

Oh sweetie I love your card, such a sweet image and I love the colours you have used!

Aww your little cubbyhole, but just think of the big cubbyhole that your moving into.....woooohoooo, can't wait to see it finished!
Hugs Tab xxx
