Why I'ts Been so Quiet Here Lately!!

Hello everyone!!  Hope you are all having a wonderful day!!

Just a short post to say what's been happening here.
'Not much lately' I hear you say .. LOL!!
Well, I have been interstate visiting rellies and catching up with friends and .. the main reason for going .. celebrating a couple of important birthdays.  Needless to say, we had a fabulous time  but, are certainly happy to be home.  I did take my Laptop with me but, apart from the odd comment here and there, didn't really use it much so I have a bit of catching up to do.

Before we went away, the cupboards in my craft room were finally finished!!  Yayy!!  Has been a work in progress for a while but they are now finished.  
Huge thanks to my darling hubby, my youngest son and our handyman.  
Only thing is, I still need to paint them and that's going to take a few days yet.  All my craft stuff is piled up everywhere so I have no idea where anything is.  Won't be much creating happening for a little while!

Here's a few piccies to show you what I mean!!
Pulled out all the drawers so I could paint the fronts.  They still need another coat!

Here's all (well, most) of my craft stuff, as I said, piled up everywhere!!

Big mess!!!

.. and a little sneak of how the drawers will look when finished!!  Can't wait!

So, I probably won't be back  in action until next week but, in the meantime, I will try to pay all of you a visit to see what you've been up to!  Looking forward to that too!!

Thanks so much for  dropping by and hope to catch up soon!!

Take care and God Bless.
Have fun crafting!!

  2. Welcome home Marg... Hope you had a fabulous time. Looks like a hot mess right now but just think how fabulous it will be when it is all done. Nothing like a tidy out :D will be gorgeous. Can't wait to see after pics <3

  3. Good to hear you had a lovely time away, but it's always good to get back home. What a mess indeed, but it will be so worth it, to have all those drawers and a good old sort out along the way. Welcome home. We've had three boys here from 8 am to 6 pm today and it rained a lot of the time, so I'm ready to put my feet up with a cuppa. x

  4. Woweeeee new craft room!!! You must let us see it finished. Pleased you had a good time away, back to the painting I think! Happy crafty week, Angela xXx

  5. Great to read you had a wonderful time Margaret. Nice to have you back and looking foreward to see more of your gorgeous creations. Hugs Veerle

  6. So good to hear you had a lovely time away, and good to have you back home too.. your room may be a mess now but it is going to look wonderful when the cupboards are done.. so I am sure it wont take long and you will be back in your tidy room creating up a storm again... I hope your week is going well.. we have had some glorious days up this way, nights are cool though... and sent us the rain if you dont want it, always welcome here!!! hehe!!

  7. Margaret, I'm so happy to hear you had some fun time visiting family and friends! Ah, what a wonderful space you have, and all this temporary chaos will pay off in the end! I can't wait to see the end result! The sneak peek of the drawers has me drooling! Oh, to have all that space! Meanwhile, I'm toiling away in my little cubbie hole! Sending hugs!

  8. Wow Margaret, it looks like you are on your way to a brand new shiny craft room! Isn't it a pain though, how you have to make a mess in order to clean? lol. Can't wait to see the final results, hopefully you will be all done soon. hugs :)
