It's the weekend...

Another week has flown by with the 'inconvenience' of having to go to work which gets in the way of being crafty!

It's been all systems go here as my brother has moved back out of my workshop and into his own rented flat and we've started to remodel our workshop room before I move all my craftyness back in. Last night was spent between IKEA and B&Q looking and measuring and planning and measuring some more and then making the plan on paper. It all seems to fit in and now we just need to get the work done. Luckily little brother has only moved to the other side of our estate as he is the handy one and he's coming this afternoon to fit a new radiator and then start ripping out the old carpet and laying my new wooden floor. Dad has already stripped the walls and we were really pleased to find that the walls are in quite a good condition so won't need plastering, just a touch of TLC.

So not a lot of craftyness going on here in my temporary workshop in the utility room. I've made a set of tags all about me for a swap with my ScrapPad friends when we go away in a couple of weeks and started another set of birthday tags for a swap with other friends. The only card I have to show you is one that was on It's A Creative World last week - I challenged myself to get out of my comfort zone and make a card for a teenage boy.

I used The Shabby Princess digi bits and bobs, Making Memories chipboard button, Pink Petticoat black and white stripes and my PSX alphabet stamps.
I'm off today to a craft exhibition at Harrogate today so hopefully I shall come back this afternoon loaded with new purchases to play with and tomorrow I have planned to get stuck into my new Design Team kit from GoGoGreetings and use the new Magnolia stamps that got delivered this week.
Love Andrea xx
