time to say goodbye (for now)

As I am moving house the time has come to pack up the whole house. My wardrobe took two large boxes and I am living out of a small case packed with unmentionables (undies) and the hanger on the back of the door filled with work stuff and a couple of nicer outfits ( just in case but no chance) so that's emptied, then came my craft room OMG I need therapy there was so much stuff AND I couldn't throw anything away its taken me 2 days to box it up.... gulp... I'm downsizing not up sizing I'll deal with it later if I don't look its not there lol Anyway this is my work deskjust got to pack the mat the table looks a bit sad on its own doesn't it mind you the room looks enormous. Just got to clean it then 1 down loads more to go hopefully we should be gone soon
the uncertainty is killing me I have been here nearly 28 years good and bad and I will be sad to go but its toooo big for just me and linkyloo so I might post moving house traumas but crafting is on hold for a while x

Can't make my mind up

I've made two cards and can't decide which one to give mum for her birthday whether I go for peachy Tilda done with distress inks or do I go for a very posh Tilda( can't remember her name)
I put my self on a challenge with the blue one coloured with prismas but NO FLOWERS ALLOWED this was difficult for me but I had to use pearls the sketch is based on last weeks

I will have to make a decision soon its mums birthday tomorrow so Happy Birthday mum. Busy week for my mum isn't it x

Happy birthday Sara

This is my craftden layout from er quite a few weeks ago (bad girl) The recipe is black bazzil and basic grey origins paper the paper is so lovely that I thought it didn't need very much else on it so I just left the lace and distressed handmade flower as stand alone embellies the obligatory pin and a bit of tied net just finished it. The letters are just chipboard painted with dabbers stamped on, rubbed over with stickles frosted lace like Tim does with the finger In the flesh the letters do show up more it says "c'est moi" which is Sara very individual. Its her birthday today 24 today her bestest bestest BESTEST pressy are Tiffany pearl earrings that she will wear when she gets married in June.
