I am not a domestic goddess, by any stretch of the imagination. Let's face it, I don't dust until things start growing in it, so when the Toad said about getting a man in this week (while we're off work) to have a look at refitting the kitchen I nearly went into meltdown. It's a bit like doing the cleaning yourself before the cleaner come in to do the cleaning - I just felt I had to clean the kitchen before it is ripped out!
We started on Monday in the garage - we have one of these really silly "tandem" double garages. It's only one garage wide but two in length. So, we had the idea of dividing it up, keeping the front as a usable garage and having the back, which is accessible from the kitchen, as a huge utility/store. But before we could even think about measuring, we had to find the floor. How is it possible for two people to accumulate so much rubbish? I reckon Toad will have at least four trips to the tip.
And as for the kitchen which we did yesterday, why would anyone collect beer bottle caps?
Anyhoo, it is now all clean and shiny and ready for the man with his tape measure at 2.00 this afternoon.
Now, I don't know who talked me into this craft fair but I am beginning to regret saying yes. I have been using every opportunity to make cards to boost the stash for sale. Here's a couple I made that are quite different from what I would normally do
I went a bit Hero Arts for these two - the flowers are from the same set, and the sentiments are from two different HA sets. Papers are from scraps box.
Then, for whatever weird reason, I had the urge to make a Treasure Box. Not done one of these for a very long time.
Now that's out of my system, I can get on with making a range of "age" cards for this blasted fair!
