Hi Hope all is well with you this week ?
Question - Am I a very sad individual ? Do I need to get out more ?
Or is it okay to be excited & inordinately happy about my new craft storage unit !!!
For anyone who called by last week you will know that despite good, helpful customer service from Storage4crafts all went awry when Fedex got their hands on my delivery !
They delivered 1 of the 2 parcels on Tuesday - and despite all their promises it was Thursday before the other half of the delivery turned up !!
As we were setting off back to England for my Sister in Law's 50th birthday party on Friday after work, it wasn't until Sunday that we could put the unit together.
I say "we" - but happily my lovely Rich swung into action with a screwdriver with me only handing things to him & trying to look useful !
The unit was very well made & came with very good instructions - so he made a great job of putting it together really quickly - and with no stress or swear words !!
And here it finally is !!
And I am excited to finally (after 4 years !) have my Cuttlebug out of its box in the depths of the cupboard & poised at a handy height - ready to use as the inspiration takes me !!
So I have the stash sorted into boxes, the boxes all labelled & surley I am all ready to go !
With all the sorting out I haven't had much time to get any actual crafting done !!
So this week you can see it is all "things in waiting" on the desk !
A new clock set of stamps - well you can never have to many clock stamps can you ?!!
Some embossing folders ready to be labelled and popped in their new box in the new unit !
On the left is a bird & bird house gift bag that I bought in the shop at Saville Gardens on Saturday - and also some mini booklets of which I have scanned the covers & printed them out -they are destined to be cut up for my journal !
In the centre are some fuchsia & black sparkly stones that my Sister in Law had sprinkled on the tables for her party - I saved them from the bin at the end of the night - ready for when I scrapbook the party !!
And on the right the freebie Nitwit Christmas stamps & tags from Simply Homemade magazine.
Thought you might like to see the flowers I arranged for the party - you can see the pink & black theme going on !!
And one more thing I just HAD to share with you - 2012 has to have been the "Hydrangea Summer " - with the weeks of endless rain we have had all summer these huge beautiful flowers have been totally sumptuous & stunning in all of the gardens I have visited in the past month - blues & whites & gorgeous deep purples - thought you would enjoy seeing them !
Anyway - have a lovely crafty week & looking forward to seeing your desks & projects as always !
