Delicious Doodles-Autumn

Autumn /Golden Brown is the theme for this week Delicious Doodles-  challenge
I used the delightful Rowena image and papers that I had lying about for my card

Hoping you can join in with the fun this week and autumn is truly here now- leaves falling off the trees, much colder at night and I have the obligatory autumn cold so feeling very yukky- hope it goes away for the rest of the weekend
See you over at Delicious Doodles

Shiny New Craft Room

My craft room has been bugging me for a while- it actually was like an explosion had happened in a paper factory, everything everywhere and so so messy.  On the plus side I did know where everything was despite all the mess.

Well I decided it was time to change so after a hunt about I picked some units from Ikea- two large and one small and a table that fits onto the unit.

After a few days building, moving, throwing out and generally making myself  sore and bringing back the tendonitis in my hand and the tennis elbow I am now nearly finished- just a few more doors to go- but they are proving harder than the units to build as there are no ready made holes for door option- maybe I should have went for baskets!!!
So here's the mess before

and here's my new shiny craft room- a few more doors have been added on since- will have some open spaces and some doors

the bit of mess at the side of the desk has still to be cleared as there's a small set of drawers coming this week
Looking good now but can't find a bloody thing!!!!
