Hi Folks - I'm back and with a very heavily laden photo post; so take a seat and pick up your cuppa and come have a look!

Firstly I want to wish my special friend Dippy and Mister a very, very happy anniversary and I have a card for them.  I think it's fitting for Dippy as I'm sure she's up in the air most of the time!!!  lol  Just joking Darnell - you're a great blogging buddy and so supportive.  Hope you have a wonderful day.

Next I have some photos - also for Dippy (as she's been gagging for them) but also for everyone else who have kindly been enquiring how my new craft room is going along.  Well, it took much longer than anticipated but it's finally there - everything moved in (hope I can now find stuff!!!) and I'm sure I'll be doing some reorganisation along the way as I start working here but at the moment it's fine.  I'm also entering the great WOYWW blog.  So here they are:

Looking in through the door

My new card/paper unit

My desk

My eBosser station

My dedicated sewing area

Old pine unit "upcycled"!!!

Computer area

My A1 Architect's unit holding all my stamps

Think I might have a bit too much!
 You can't imagine the number of storage boxes and drawer units I took down to the charity shop yesterday - it was quite cathartic!!!  My room is on the other side of the house and faces West so is much lighter/brighter than my old room, plus it has a lovely view out on to fields.

Can't wait to get crafting now - seems like it's been far too long.
One last look at my very clear desk - it won't look like that for very long!!!  lol

Thanks for stopping by.  Hopefully I can now get back to normal with posts and commenting.

  10. Hi Karen. First of all - love the card ... and you're right, Darnell is up in the air most of the time so it's very fitting :)

    Love, love, love your craft room. Fabulous!!! So many storage units and everything stored away. When I grow up, I want to have a room just like yours :) Loll xx

  11. Oh, clap, clap!! Hello, it's me, up here. Looook up!! In the air!!

    First, such a pretty hearty card you made for me and Mister, Karendipity! I LOVE it and have pinned it to my special Pinterest board for the occasion!

    Your post is a surprise to me in TWO ways with the added treat of finally seeing your new and beautiful craft space! (I hope gagging means something not so bad over there as it does over here!) It was well worth the wait! You and your Mister have outdone yourselves. It's awesome and clean and organized and bright. Swoon me to the moon! Good job!!

    I do hope you took lots of 'before' pictures as well. THAT's the most fun for everyone to see. These 'after' pictures are certainly 'magazine ready!' I'm so happy for you to find drawers like mine for your woodens and hope you like it. I hope you like everything!! Well, really, duh, how could you not?!

    BTW, can you send me the month and day of your anni so I can return the flavor and send you a congratulations comment on your special day? Please.

    Thank you again for taking part in this! Mwah! Dippy
