All White!

Hello friends
Getting there with the painting....what a difference a ceiling makes and many many litres of white paint!
This is the hallway leading from the kitchen to the shop front, it isn't until you are painting
that you realise just how much wall and ceiling there is!
I'm pleased I've gone for white, it has made everything so much lighter and it means
I can adorn the walls with anything!

Getting back to my 2012 craft/life recap.
September 2012

For Spellbinders, I created one of my most favourite cards to date using Les Papillions,
and Foliage.

My niece went off to Uni so I packed up a chocolate gift for her.

And for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L I created a little home decor frame.
 Totally LOVE Bitty Blossoms!
Monday tomorrow and I've got an appointment with the Bank Manager and a 
trip to the dentist...most definitely a grim day! 
On a positive note, I hope to bring you more shop/studio progress photos - itching to put some
wallpaper up on a couple of walls and start to move stuff in.
Thank you all for your comments, words of advice and encouragement -
I'm trying to slow down a little bit but my brain has other ideas!
Take care friends - enjoy your Sunday - I'm cooking roast lamb today - 
Elliott's favourite.

You are workig wonders on the Studio - will be finished before you know it.

Enjoy the lamb

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Christine, Wow, the butterfly card is one of my favourites to, I love it, also the bitty blossoms are gorgeous.
That piccie of the hallway, it really shows the length of it, no wonder you say it felt like you were going on for ever, a really good job though. It's coming on really well.
Have a good day tomorrow, yuck, both scenarios are stressful, it will soon be tomorrow night.
Have a lovely dinner with your roast lamb, I used to love it too, but haven't eaten red meat for years now.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Morning Christine

Its been lovely looking at your projects that you have made over the year. Love the chocolate bar and yours inspired me to make some for Christmas

Your shop is really coming along now and looking good.

Good luck with the bank manager, hope he understands crafters lol, and hope the dentist finds no cavities

Morning Christine, with the white walls you could but up any projects made in class to display them! I hate painting ceilings, always end up with more on me than the ceiling!!!
Good luck for the dentist and bank tomorrow hope both goes well. Emma

Beautiful butterfly card, the paper helps to really 'make' it. I don't know how you managed to make three projects and continue to paint!

Elizabeth said...

Morning Christine, ooooooo lovely lamb for dinner - enjoy. We are having homemade pork meatballs and tagliatelli.
Your new shop is really coming on, you must be shattered.
Hope your appointments tomorrow go well for you.
Lovely to see the project recap of September.
Enjoy your day everyone.

Hello Christine

The studio is really coming on, you must be so pleased. Love the photos of your recap of the year again. You have chosen some fab makes.
I have promised myself to go back through your blog sometime, (to before we 'met') to catch up on your lovely, creative makes. I reckon I'll need an hour or two and some cups of coffee :-))

Good luck for tomorrow, hope both appts go well.
