Well I‘ve not been idle, but still no mini work though!
I have added a number of pages to my blog (the the right of this post), these will be updated as and when I get time and when I have something new to add. There will be more pages, again, as and when I start on those projects. I also have approx. 4 or 5 kits that are currently themeless because I haven't decided what to do them as ! I have seen one more kit that I'd love...it's out of stock at the moment so I have to wait. Again, it will be a Harry Potter project (let's hope they restock it!). :o)
Anyhow, the space is clear on top of the chests of everything other than projects! YAY! The throw will be removed once my kits have their sticky foam pads on their bases (to protect my chests from scratches).
I have been sorting out and repacking on a grand scale. This weekend I sorted out my Summerhouse and took up there the majority of my supplies. I still need to go through some of the drawers in my craft room and check there‘s nothing lurking in there that I want up there now. It’s not easy when you have a fair bit of stuff…one's mind can get a bit overwhelmed!
It's getting there....
The unit with the ceramic and chrome handles will go under my new craft table when it arrives.
I have ordered the remaining pieces of furniture and it should have been delivered on Friday, IKEA rang last Tuesday to say it would be delivered this Wednesday instead. I have bought the largest white table in the design I wanted, the double shelf unit and a chair. Hopefully these will be in situ by next weekend. :o)
The delay has given us time to paint the wood and more time to keep tidying up! I have one more box to pack away…this can’t be done until I go through the drawers in the tall units.
As I was sorting out the built-in book case I had an idea. ;o) This was to take off the door and use this cupboard instead. I originally wanted a two foot wide unit but I couldn’t see one so I opted for two, one foot units instead. Using the bookcase meant I could now add smaller projects on the shelves. I’ve had the top shelf removed and I now plan to have a kit on new top shelf and a room box or small kits on the two other shelves. Books or DVD’s will stay on the very bottom shelf. For now I have other items on it…again it will be re sorted once the room is more done. The cupboard has been tidied up and redecorated.
Here is it revamped and ready for kits as and when they are completed.
The new high up shelf will hold lighter and smaller kits that I have...maybe one or two.
The plastic chests that were in my craft room are now in two's under the worktop. They were made in two sections already, so no sawing was required. :o) I have them all in there and this type of storage is far superior than numerous stacked boxes on top of each other! I will label the drawers for more obscure things that I have. It stays mainly damp free, and my mini’s are fine. I did spot that some of the paint pots were wet with condensation, so I’ve added some silica bags in the drawers to keep things dry. I will get some more in different sizes and I will add the smaller one’s inside my witches house (hidden from view) just to be on the safe side.
It will make my life so much easier and it shouldn't take me so long to get to some of my more obscure supplies!
Pull out drawers at my disposal!
New mini's! I haven’t shown everything I have received recently as I have no where to photograph them. :o((
I have some new mini's for Mrs Puddifoot's Teashop and these photo's, well they do zero justice to Jason and Jacqueline Getzan's outstanding craftmanship! I love them to bits! They are quirky and wacky! They wouldn't be to everyone's taste because of this, but they are perfect for a project such as this. :o)))
I bought this table in November/December 2011 and Jason and Jacqueline so graciously put the other two aside for when I was ready to purchase. :o))) Rather than choose all the same type table's (which I couldn't as I bought the last cherry cupcake table), I chose to have 3 different ones.
The Blueberry cupcake Bistro Table did not come with any chairs, I was given the option of design and type of chairs I wanted...I chose all matching chairs, so I had to wait for them to be made, and these two tables etc arrived today. ;o))
I have been looking at wallpaper's for shop and I think I have seen the perfect one for downstairs at least. :o)
They popped this current magazine article of their work in and it mention's my Bistro Tables etc. :o))
A big warm welcome to my new followers….I hope you don’t mind my ramblings and madness! :o))
