Renovation Rescue

Well I said watch this space and here it is, after hours of work my new sCRAP room has taken shape, I emphasize the word CRAP as I seem to have found a lot of that whilst cleaning. Anyway here are some before, during and after photos. I still have a few too hard baskets and a little more sorting to do but I have put all loose pages in albums, and have done a heap of organising. I would still like 1 more shelving unit, which I might get later in the week and have to hem the organza curtains. From having a room that was a makeshift garage and craming all my scrapbooking into the dining room (with a table that we couldn't eat at) to a lovely organised and laid out area. I am really happy with how it has turned out.

Watch this Space

Well fellow scrappers prepare to be jealous. My scrap room is going to be awesome. I have made the decision to do a renovation rescue on the sunroom. Yesterday I spent the day buying supplies and removing everything out of the room and filling holes and general preparation. This morning I spent sanding the window edges and started painting. For those that know my sunroom it has horrible wood paneling on the walls, so I thought painting it a nice cream couldn't look any worse. I also bought some cube shelving from Fantastic furniture and some fab hot pink and lime green drawer type things to put in it. I am also going to head back to the paint shop to find something to paint over the tiles as they are horrible too.

I took some before photos (of course) so watch this space, I am going to be a busy bee getting this all finished before NYE when my friends will be decending upon me. Will put up the "before" photos soon.

Too many photos

I have been scrapbooking tonight doing more and more of my Honeymoon album. So far 64 pages done, but am getting a bit bored with it so thought I would cruise the blogs to see what my friends have been up to lately.

I am concerned that I could have the same amount of pages to go, we did take 14 GB of photos on the trip and I have culled and culled and then printed them and culled again. I need an album that is going to fit all these pages in, but I fear it could be a 2 or 3 album series.

I got a bit of inspiration from Inspired Blueprints with their latest sketch so might have a little break from basic holiday pages and do something more creative.

I am dreading the weekend, need to plant another new garden before my plants die in their pots, prepare the yard for turf, i am sure that means I will be on the end of the shovel and I would love to get my new clothes line up, only got it for Xmas last year or was it the year before, I can't remember.

I dream of a weekend where I don't have to work in the yard and can relax and enjoy the new facilities.
