Poor Hubby had to pull every one of these nails out, after ripping down the laths.
I'm not usually one for painted walls, but I'd decided that for my room I just wanted Black & White- so three walls were painted white, and the chimney breast wall has a fabulous sparkly black wallpaper.
Just how cool is this wallpaper, lol ?
Expedit 5x5 cube was the first assembled-love it! Each cube is 13" square, so it holds pretty much anything.
Next item was another Expedit cube, this time a 4x2, with a desk attached. Absolutely perfect, as I wanted somewhere easily accessible for my Big Shot Pro, Cuttlebug etc, where I could also have plates/dies & folders to hand.
Everything starting to go in place-or until I decide it's in the wrong place, and start tweaking things.
The last big job is to un-mount most of my woodmounted stamps, I'm just keeping the really large ones on wood, all the rest will go into binders. Takes up much less space!
And this below was my old craft room- thought I'd better swap the posts round- it gets a bit confusing, lol.
My Peel-offs, stored in Ring Binders, and organised by theme. Mainly I use Letters & Numbers, and Borders.
My Unmounted stamps, stamped onto A5 sheets and stored in A5 ring binders.Stamped and sorted by theme, easy to find what I have in, say, Oriental, or Mens Images.
Shelves built by Beloved Husband, Binders on bottom shelf contain all my u/m stamps. Next one up is peeloff binders and card storage.Next shelf has binders containing vellums, decoupage sheets and ideas files. Top shelf is stuff that doesn't fit into the other shelves, lol.
My wood mounted stamps and inkpad storage, again built by Beloved Husband.
My Pc corner with my X-Blade PC, handbuilt by Beloved Husband, who is known as the IT expert in the house. The graphics card has blue lights on it, which obviously makes it better & faster, lol.
How cute is this? A squirrel having lunch, not bothered about us working in the garden at the time.
I'm Ambrose and I'm having a nap,ok?
This is me looking cute.
And this is me looking fierce. You can see that, right?

and our grandchildren, Mortimer & Merlin.
As the wedding was in October, we expected it to be quite chilly, hence Dougs Brocade coat and my Super-size cloak. As you can tell from the pictures, the men were in short-sleeved shirts, the women in strappy/strapless dresses. It was HOT!!!!!
