Little Wee Peggy

Hope you have had a great and yippee the weekend is here. I just wondered before I get to my card, where do you craft?. I have a shed in the garden, sounds bad doesn't it but it is so not, my other half took an normal 8 x6 shed and added another bit to it about the same size he then plastered it all out added electric and painted it a sugar pink, then added a work surface for me it is lovely in there I have tv and love it but now it has grown a bit small for me, so my fab other half is adding another bit for me the other end how cool is that. The frame work is done the roof is on the floor is down just praying it doesn't rain as it hasn't been water proofed yet then the tongue and groove will be added to the outside it has been insulated and also needs the electrics done for the new bit, then some painting and new flooring and bobs your uncle, I can fill the other end of my Wendy house lol I will add some pics when I download them to show you the progress. its going to be mainly for my cutting machines I have 3 cricuts an imagine a expression and a mini one but cant use them due to no room but the other end with have a whole work bench at the back for them so cant wait.

Sugar Bowl Challenge 91 Sketch and Shabby Chic

Hi folks well summer is nearly over and the kids are back to school well one of my is still at home due to having an op they were suppose to do it at beginning of summer holiday so he didn't have any time off but then they canceled it and he had it done a week before school restarted, so total waste of time he still has stitches in and can't wear cloths yet as they rub, so wont be going back till at least next week. They weren't to impressed when I told them not my fault I didn't cancel it. He has been quite traumatised by the whole thing lol, was a bit worried at first, it was the first time he had even had surgery or had been put to sleep bless him. He is loads better now especially now the swelling has gone down he looked like he had been hit between the legs with a baseball bat (you can guess now what he had done lol) he did look very sore
