Crafting Forever

Good morning and the clouds are still in the sky.  Forecast is for a warm day with no rain.  A few plants have taken a bit of a battering with the downpour we had yesterday so will have to get some sticks to prop them up.

Here are some more cards that were made a couple of weeks ago.

I really am loving this stamp set and wish I could play with it a little more.  It is called Crafting Forever and I used the watercolour pencils for some adult colouring, I did quite well considering my fingers were not the best.  If you would like to purchase this set, you can do so online through the store and the stamps will be delivered straight to your door, if you need a hand to do this, just get in touch.

Our kitchen saga is really getting difficult but I hope we have found a solution. We would like a new kitchen, one of the two projects planned for this year. After months and months of searching, we thought the Ikea kitchen was perfect. Before it can be installed quite a lot of building works are required, re-plastering half the kitchen, lowering the ceiling, drains built at the side of the house, current breakfast bar/wall knocking down, new radiators and pipework to be installed, new pipework for water to the other side of the room for washing machine. Not too much but enough and we explained this to Ikea. No problem Ikea said, the company that will fit the kitchen will undertake all this extra work. Great. Company contacted, appointment made, they cancelled it 10 minutes after they should have been here. Next appointment made and then cancelled as he had an accident on his way here. Next appointment made, chappie changed the time by an hour a few minutes before he was due to knock on the door. He turned up and was here for 2 hours. He explained it wasn't his normal role within the company but he was helping out? We got a quote though the post and there were lots of additional bits added. We called and left a message, not heard from them for a week. We called again, nothing and that was in May. Had our holiday and called again well this has gone on for a month now and we are getting no where. Ikea say they are a good company but we feel that we are being fobbed off. Do you know when you get a 'gut feeling' that something is wrong, well this is how I feel.  Went to see a local kitchen company earlier this week after 4 friends recommended the same guy. He was lovely and we are now waiting to hear from is on hold. Phew.  I will keep you posted.

All SU goodies have arrived, are sorted and kettle is on all day and evening today.  I have sent emails and left messages so I hope everyone has got these. 

Tonight it is the Christmas Card and Chatter night.  You bring along all your own crafting supplies and sit with like minded folk to either make Christmas cards or just sit and chatter.  Lots of room, lots of biscuits (cant bake today as hands are not too good).   If you fancy coming along, just get in touch for venue details.

Right, off to start my day, fingers have warmed up a little
