WOYWW? September 12th {a change}

Morning All, hope you are all well, this will be a picture heavy post as i have as the title suggests had a bit of a change so the first photo will be my desk last thing at night – nothing will have changed since then as i have only been up a little while! lol And then i will show you my re organisation and the change of look in my craft area for those that wanna stick around :)


So this is what is on my desk at the moment; the start of my convention swaps turned over so as not to spoil the surprise for the recipients, a gift from my friend and upline Bekka, a few new stamps, and a couple of stray hair clips.

SO the last few weeks i have posted pictures of my huge pile of mess; well this week i tidied it all up, and i mean ALL i pulled everything off the shelves and sorted through it all before putting it away i also reclaimed a dresser from the children’s craft stuff to put all mine away out of sight. 


So now that it was tidy i was thinking i don’t really like the fabric on my chair and footstool anymore and in our new house we have a different colour scheme so it was time for a change so off i popped to the local had dash and an afternoon and evenings work with the staple gun and hammer later here we are;


                Before                              After


This time i went for a nice mocha brown with a silvery tree pattern on which toned in well with our creams and browns in the living room.

Here are the rest of the shots of the chair, footstool {that Mr.C made a while ago} and a new notice board to match. 


if you are still with me thank you for looking what do you think of the change?

Until next time

So Long, Fare Well…. {blog hop}

…………………………. auf weidersehen good-bye! You know the song lol i couldn’t resist!
We are coming to the end of the Current Catalogue so that means in order to make room for our new and extended range some items sadly have to leave us; some of these our favourites and will be missed but on the positive side it does mean lots of yummy new stash coming our way next month {eep!!}
A few of us on In Love With Stamping decided to do a blog hop today to showcase our favourite stamps sets that are bidding us farewell this month.  Now if you are new to this a blog hop is where a group of blogs link together in a big circle and we hop from blog to blog ending up where you started again.

So onto the Stamp set that i love; and i do mean love it was a long held joke between a demo friend of mine that she would hear me scream NOOOOOOOO! if it was retired! It was one of the first sets i brought even before i became a demo and i have used it for so many occasions it is perfect for both Men and Women.

Here are some projects i have made using the Trendy Trees set;
Mini Milk carton and gift card
Trio of mini cards
gift box for the trio of cards
So i will really miss this set i use it such a lot.  If you would like to see what is on the retired list you can find it here;

but be quick we have had some sell outs already and once its gone its gone. Email me your order NOW so we can do our best to get your must have items
Don't forget to head on over to Leanie to see what gorgeous projects she has in store for you
Enjoy the rest of the blog hop
Until Next time
if you get lost on the blog hop here is the full list

Morning quick one from me today as have tons to do M went back to school yesterday so know is time to get the house in order.  Me and Mr.C sorted out our out building so that you can walk in there without being attacked by garden furniture!

To the desk……………………..Okay not much has changed since last week except that more Cr*p has joined the pile!! Sunglasses my mum brought back from Spain for me from the looky looky man {he walks along the beach going looky looky so the name stuck!} a pack of new seasonal catties waiting to be sent out.  So my mission today now that M is at school and Mr.C has gone back to work is to tidy and sort my desk so that tomorrow i can craft!! i have sky +’d Downton Abby, Holby City and the soaps and plan to have them on in background now that i have regained control of my tv from the Disney Channel!!
