WOYWW 143

Do not adjust your sets.  Normal service will resume shortly.  I hope!  My table has gone to pastures new (my Dad's house was left very bare when his partners family removed many of her belongings and they tried to take some of his stuff too... gggrrr to the horrors that death brings about in people) so I am in the market for a new table to work at.  This is what my pink spotty tablecloth was hiding... no not Management and the children, just that gorgeous table.


This is the situation today.  Management is off and as B is at nursery we are trying to get this room completed so that we can move on to the bedroom which was the intended current task!  Oops!


I am very twitchy not having a craft room right now.  You'll notice a few baby pink things on the floor where I have been spraying.  I moved the mat out to spray in the garden and a pretty misted rectangle was revealed on the floor.  B then romped around in it and managed to clean the floor but end up very pink herself.  The previous evening I went to my Slimming World meeting with pink hands, and socks with a pink slipper shape misted onto them!

I'm taking the time in exile to complete some more pizza box storage and to plan a rather special project involving plaster cast.  If you have any ideas on this or you know what does or doesn't work on plaster then please let me know before I damage something that can never be repeated.

And here's a little card that I managed to sneak in before the table escaped.  One of B's preschool teachers left and so I used some Kirsty Wiseman inspiration because I love her cards.  I can't wait for the room to be finished so I can get back in there and get back at my scissors and glue!


I'm sure I will need a break during the painting today and what better way to relax than to have a peruse of other crafty desks around the world.  Check out the list with Julia but don't let your tea go cold while you snoop ;-)

Bye for now

  17. It's after midnight and I'm quite tired and I have no idea what you meant about your table.

    I think you are saying that the lovely table that I am drooling over was loaned to your Dad (due to the unfortunate circumstance of his partners family). i will never understand why death does seem to bring out the worst in people.

    And, I think you are moving rooms.
    Hope I'm right...If so....Good luck with the move.

    Oh, thank goodness, I checked the other comments and I am not the only one who is confused!

  18. Oh isn't that horrible, its hard enough coping with the loss of a partner without having to deal with greedy relatives adding to the pain - I did smile at your pink socks and hands tho. Never ever used plaster cast for anything other then fixing broken bones! Love the card a nice simple design, letting the papers 'shine'. Hope you get your room sorted soon Hugs Lou x

  21. Love you card, the blues are perfect! Take the time to get your room right, before everything comes in, that's sooooo much easier!
