About Me

My photo
I retired on March 11th 2014 after 26 years as a doctors receptionist. I am now looking forward to the freedom to enjoy my days doing anything I wish to. Spending time with family, catching up with friends. Playing in my Scrappy Shack, scrapbooking, cardmaking, art journalling, quilting, gardening, baking. Spending wonderful times with my beloved other half. I am so looking forward to this time in my life.

A Work in Progress

It is taking longer than I thought to sort through all my "Stuff"
But I'm getting there slowly.

Decanting from the Old to the New

We have been busy decanting ALL MY STUFF from my old craft shed to my new Scrappy Shack.
It is taking longer than expected and I have to send quite a lot of MY STUFF to new homes.
It is well known that scrapbooker's/crafter's are Magpies...I have been a Very Greedy Magpie!!

So there are bag's and boxes of MY STUFF going to , granddaughter's (with daughter's consent hopefully)
and Rainbow's and Brownies.

Trouble is I went to COSTCO for the first time in years on Saturday and spent £79 on more scrapbooking STUFF!!    I think I need treatment....

Now that I am working part time I hope to be in my element for at least an hour a day, it will probably run into three hours but I really need to be getting down to having paper pleasure daily.

There will be photo's soon, I would love to have a photo spread similar to those in Studio magazines, but this is real life so we shall see......

My New Scraping Shack

A Ten by Eight Shed is transformed into my Scrapbooking Haven.
It has been insulated, flooring put down, bookcases and desk installed.

Tomorrow the electric's will be completed, a new shelving unit from IKEA will be put in position and then I will have to be ruthless with my stash of crafting stuff. Everything MUST have a home in this room, I am not going to have a craft STOREROOM again.

I believe a ton of stuff will be given away to grandchildren and their schools and clubs. I have not been able to do any scrapbooking for such a long while because of the lack of space.  I am determined there will be space to work and create in this new room.

So watch this space, let the fun begin....
