My shiny new craft/bedroom....

Well it's been ages in the making but here it is at last!!!

Taaaa Daaaa.........

My shiny new craft space!! YAY I can finally get organised! So much better than this don't you think.....just click on the pictures for a btter look....

Anyway what I did?....well, the black units are kitchen units from Ikea, as is the metal pole, the cutlery 'beakers' and the spice rack! I just adapted them to suit...The counter top was from the kitchen I had in this house when I moved here so before the guys fitted my present kitchen i just asked them not to chuck it away and recycled it. I have so much more space for all the bigger stuff I have, i.e. my big shot, bind it all, and the dream kuts machines as well as more storage place for my stamp folders, I'm really pleased with the end result of this as I just wasn't sure if it would look really 'kitchen' like. So there you go...just because they are kitchen units doesn't mean they need to be used in the kitchen! lol.!

I still have a few bits and pieces to finish off, but will need to wait until my friend has some spare time at the weekend, I've still got the handles to put on the units and don't want to risk doing that myself as I have to drill holes and knowing me I'll probably get it sooo wrong!

Oh yes, and I forgot to mention, incase anyone is interest the Wall paper is a gorgeous Charles Rennie Macintosh Rose, I struggled with a paint to match but was really lucky to spot that green, you would actually think it was made to match the paper! I'm not usually a 'green' person, but was pleased with the result.

Thank you for dropping by,

Take care everyone and I hope to get back tocrafting soon,

more digi scrapbooking

This time it's one of my son.

Now this picture means so much to me! It was the first major karate competition he entered and he won his category! So I just had to do something very special with it.

I really do adore this programme.....I'm telling you! It's the best thing since sliced bread!!! Even more so because I am NOT the best person when it comes to computers, it is just so simple to use, and very VERY addictive, so if you ever consider buying the Serif Digital Scrapbook Artist it's the best investment you will EVER warned!! All you'll want to do is play!!!

Thanks for looking in,

Digital Scrapbook Artist...a special friend

I made this page for a very special friend of mine, he has been so kind and sweet to me over the past few weeks by being my shoulder to cry on. Basically it is just a small Thank You gift.

The re-decoration and organisation of my craftroom/bedroom is coming along nicely, but I had to stop for a while yesterday as I have units that need fitting, and there just isn't enough room for more bodies, so while they were getting 'sorted', I ended up playing with the Digital Scrapbook Artist, seeing as all my 'hands on' stuff is still packed away in boxes! eek! I do so adore this's just so so simple to use and boy am I glad I spent the £80 on it! Worth every penny!

Thank you all for popping by and reading my little rambles....I am hoping to get photos of the finished room posted this space!!!

Take care all
