What a month it's been. In amongst commissions for Crafts Beautiful, we've had all new radiators, new boiler and central heating system put in and we're trying to do up two of the bathrooms. Madness, utter madness...
Why do we put ourselves through it? Probably because we've been here nearly two and a half years now, the central heating needed doing and the bathrooms were crap ('scuse the pun, it's the only way I can describe them). Plus, we couldn't do one room with out the other due to the way the plumbing is. There's all new plumbing to be done, stud walls to build, plastering, tiling, painting, new flooring the list and expenses go on and on and on.The house is constantly dusty, with trails going in and out of each room. I'm sooooo itching to have a spring clean!
Despite all this, I am quite enjoying it really. We don't plan to move again, so we feel it's more for 'us' in this house. I've put getting my chickens on hold until next year now, and the canoe (another story).
Anyway, here's a sneaky peek of my projects in this month's issue of the magazine. Sorry about the quality of the pictures, the scanner decided to throw a wobbly (probably fed up with being covered in a perpetual blanket of dust).
For more crafting ideas visit Crafts Beautiful, or buy the magazine, there are loads of fab ideas and inspiration for Easter projects, with loads of hints, tips and articles, April 2012 issue out now.
I'm going to go now, I've got some filling and sanding to do (I feel more dust coming on), hopefully I'll get chance over the next couple of days to take a couple of piccies of recent cards I incredibly found the time to conjure up. Bye for now! xx
