Hello everybody, blimey another week has flown by… where on earth does the time go?
We’ve got the workmen in this week sorting out the hole in our floor, the wet rot has all been burned away, new joists put in, and the wood and bricks all treated so hopefully that should be the end of the problem
It’s horrible thinking that this has been under our floor for goodness knows how many years, this is a few days on when it’s started to dry out so you can imagine how horrendous it was when Keith first looked, OMG
The foot size hole you can see in the board is where my Sister in Law fell through, it was quite funny…
ok, it was actually hilarious!
…and you can’t see but there is a matching one at the other side where Keith fell through on Sunday, he pulled the curtain down, that was hilarious too
…looking a bit better now, Manny thought he was project manager!!
Plastering and skirting boards tomorrow and then we have to start decorating, but, that means the other rooms will all look scruffy and we’ll probably end up doing the whole downstairs!
Jess is going to a wedding on Saturday and asked me for a special card as it is a good friend of hers. I’d seen this pretty shaped card on Teresa Allday’s blog and wanted to try it for a while...
Here’s what I used;
Doohickey heart border
Image from one of the discontinued LOTV art pads
Centura pearl card
NitWits Mr & Mrs papers
The front flap lifts up and I decorated the inside to match (although I forgot to take a picture)
The names and date are printed on vellum and then I just stuck it at either side with a tiny blob of glue and covered with a gem
Right, time for a nice soak in the bath for me! I can’t wait to get stuck in and have a good clean, we seem to have been surrounded by muck and dust for weeks!
Enjoy the rest of your week crafters
