Whilst we are away our bedroom is being decorated so as well as packing for 2 weeks I've had to pack all my craft stuff away (mainly it's all stacked up in Charlotte's room). We have been in our house 8 years in November and is the only room not to have been decorated (some other rooms have been decorated several times since). It is a large room with loads of dark wood, awkward angles and I have hated how it makes the room dark and depressing for ages. We have decided to paint it white so it should lighten the room up no end. I'm so looking forward to seeing the end results. As it's a large job we have got a decorator in that Les knows to do it. So here is the before shot and then I will post the after shot when I return home.
Last week I signed up for Shimelle's new class Explore, I haven't really managed to get started with it. I have some good ideas but just need a few more hours in a day. I did manage to complete the sketch on Friday though just need to add some journalling under the flowers. I love Shimelle's work and I find her so inspiring, I was clearing some of my old Scrapbook Inspiration magazines out and tore out loads of her layouts and sketches which I plan to scrap lift. I really miss that mag and in my opinion it was the best.
We have just recently joined the National Trust and plan to see as many as places we can in a year. Last Sunday the weather was lovely so we went over to Droitwich to Hanbury Hall, it's absolutely stunning and well worth a look even if you aren't a member. The gardens were amazing and so well cared for.
Righto I'm off to the shops for garlic bread cos we can't possibly have pasta without it!!!. lol.
Take care all.
