Lots of glitter and bling in this craft room.
I like to have lots of pretty girly things around me when I am creating.
Jars of bits and pieces, I must get around to taking all of the labels off one day, but with all the jars that I have it is a big job.

Do you like my moat around the front and side of the house?
I went to take the boys to school, got a little way up the road and had to turn around, the roads were all flooded, one house that we passed had a ragging river in their back yard, I got the boys to try and take some photos while I was driving, but even those don't show how bad it is.
Those grey areas are normally front lawns now turned into rivers!!!

I know it is not too pretty at the moment, I have to spend some time on prettying it up like Rachael did with her journals. This book is the ultimate list, my renovating projects folder, the folder is divided up into rooms and in each section I have a list of jobs to either finish or start, as well as some pretty pictures that I have found while looking on the Internet for inspiration.
I made this folder a couple of months ago and although I have finished and crossed out a couple of projects there is still so much to do. I have decided that I will tackle the list by doing one project or room a week, so each Sunday night I will decide what project I am going to do for the next week and I will do a short post about it including a before photo, then when the project is finished I will post again and show you all the finished product, that way if I don't get the project finished in a week the whole of blogland will know about it. Nothing like a bit of shame to get one motivated.
So here is this weeks project - The Laundry
Man I can't believe that I am showing you all this mess.
During the Easter school holidays my boys helped me to paint 5 rooms, they wanted guitar hero for their wii and I wanted some painting done so a deal was made, they did all the roller work while I did all the cutting in. The laundry was one of those rooms, but we were not able to completely finish it as there was a very large fridge in here and I needed Paul to remove it so that I could finish the painting. So now with the fridge gone I have no excuse. I will show you a photo of the finished laundry as soon as I have finished. Until then...........
Cheers and Best Wishes,
