Poorly and grey.
We think the jab has knocked the wind out of her sails from yesterday and it almost killed her to take the day off school because it meant missing Science.
The supposed a.m. call turned out to be p.m. call which meant the a.m. delivery of our beautiful sofa had to sit on the drive until 2pm. Thank goodness it was dry outside.
Situating the sofas.
We got the one seater chair in and the two part 4 seater in but could we get the 3 seater in? No way matey. We even took the window pane out to try and shove it through the gap.
No way. Nuh, uh.
Cry Cry Cry.
Pah, whats number four when one, two and three sucked big time.
Mark and I have been frantic with it all this week.
I even considered divorce because it would have been less bloody than murder.
On top of that I have been busy in the makery department and have made a total of 15 layouts and a number of papercraft projects this week which has kept me sane into the wee hours of the morning. Studio Calico's Center Stage kit went live last night/this morning which amounted to 5 layouts. I have 5 Basic Grey layouts from the new line which I loved working with but have to say that Granola is not my bestest out of the lot. Love Ambrosia like I knew I would and Eva is just this acidic looking plum with undertones of blush which is gorgeous. Then I have two layouts for Practical Publishing (so happy to be working for the Scrapbook Magazine again) and then 3 layouts for my class tomorrow over at Dawns. And guess what, Ive still got hundreds of photos to scrap. Whilst ever there are photos, there are layouts to be made.
Ive was approached to make some stamps by a UK manufacturer this week (quite out of nowhere) and its given me the chance to think of some ideas of when you have those moments when you think"I wish this was a stamp" or "I wish there was a stamp that did this". Do you ever think like that? I also do it when Im working with photos that have no matching papers. I dream up this patterned paper in my head but it never materialises. I think in December I can take that on and will now be able to showcase them at Stitches in February along with my software CD of printables for card makers. The shift back into cardmaking is slinking furiously towards reality. The uk being a nation of Carmakers, it was only going to be a matter of time.
So as you can see, its really been a fabulous week - either with tongue in cheek or poking out of my mouth. Decorating sucks for the house but decorating with crafty papers - I lubs it.
