Aah winter. Already laid me low with a 2 week virus and set me up nicely with a cough that will probably last till next summer, hence MIA last week. But enough of my ills, here's my desk this week.
Centre stage is my pop up card using some gorgeous Laurel Burch stamps. Totally inspired (enabled) by the lovely Neet as I had never really registered these images before. Thanks Neet!! Otherwise just a complete mess. In the interest of full disclosure, here is the view from the doorway:-
No excuse really. I really hate it like this, especially at Christmas time when I am often working on multiple projects at once and consequently I have to make use of my lowest shelving options (the floor) increasing the amount of bending I have to do (How does Helen do it?) and making free movement around the room rather difficult. There is a little bit of residual stuff to go away after class yesterday but not too much. I'm basically stuck like this till 2020.
My dining room is in a similar state - we had new furniture delivered yesterday. There is so much packaging to get rid of (by volume larger than a double wardrobe). I really hadn't considered this consequence of buying ready made furniture rather than flat pack. I am quite in shock as to how much there is to get rid of. (Hubby almost goes into cardiac arrest putting flat pack furniture together so I have vetoed it for the future. However he was halfway there just getting the new stuff out of the packaging so I doubt I've gained much. I thought they did it for you. My bad, didn't read the small print). So will have to sort this afternoon as I can't put everything back in the new cupboards as there is no room to move there either until I get rid of it. First world problems I guess.
How I hate decorating/home improvement/change.....how you coping Julia?
