Back To The Crafty Day Job...

Hi folks...it's been a bit of a juggling balls and spinning plates kind of a weekend for the cubbyhole crew starting off with unpacking the 22 box delivery from Ikea...
the unpacking took way longer than the actual construction and I now have enough corrugated cardboard to last me for the rest of my life...
but when it comes to flat pack....Ikea units are the creme de la creme...they are so easy to put together and I even managed the last one single handedly when hubby took time out to have a cuppa and my Furry companion decided he'd had enough of construction for one day and sneaked off for an afternoon snooze.
but Rome certainly wasn't built in a day and this particular project is far from completion...there's still a pile of door and drawer inserts to tackle... 
the bookcase wall to move back in from it's temporary home in the kitchen...
and get the worktops fitted when hunky joiner who has just become a Dad for the second time returns from his 2 weeks off  "bonding with new baby" paternity leave. In the meantime...we're making do with our temporary cardboard work surfaces and happy that we're back to working in a 50% functional clean and bright crafty space instead of a grotty building site...
and I have to admit...I'm grateful for a little breathing space before we contemplate the most daunting task of all...moving the rest of the crafty stash back in and deciding what's going where.
In the meantime...it's back to the crafty day job to catch up with a list as long as my arm...nailing magazine commissions...having fun with the gorgeous June Card Kit and a fabulous new release from Simon Says Stamp and fingers crossed...if the aforementioned all goes according to plan...some much needed "sitting at the kitchen table with a cuppa" relaxing playtime with another yummy parcel of Assemblage...
Have fun whatever you have planned this week
Toodle-oo for now
