Hello .......... what's news around here.........
I have given my bit of the study a make over of sorts. Still school holidays, and the boys seem happy to hang around at home , so I have been trying to organise my wool storage and give me somewhere to do crafty stuff that doesn't end up spreading through the whole house.
We took a trip to Ikea on Sunday to get these square boxy shelves. It pays to be prepared when you shop at Ikea, the place is enormous and like a great shopping conveyor belt, everyone moves in the same direction, and it is like swimming up stream if you want to back track and check something out.
Note to self: don't go to Ikea on a weekend ever again thinking you can just quickly pop in and grab what you want and be on the road again in 20 minutes. It ain't gonna happen. Best leave 4.5hrs for the round trip, (3hrs driving, and 1.5 to get the stuff) , and be ready to go, go, go!!! It is not a place to browse in peace, be ready to contend with 50 million other people not really sure what they are looking for, and then all trying to check out at the same time. It is an amazing shopping experience.
So anyhoo, we bought these new shelves and I am soooo happy with my new organised things, all the colourful wool sitting nice and neat in their little squares. Moved the table around to a new position, tidied up my wool scraps, gave it a bit of a dust and vac, added my blue chair and had fun rearranging stuff, and there you go, one new improved crafty space!
Think I'll have a little sit in the blue chair with a nice drink and do a bit of hooky, I've got a few ideas swirling around trying to get out, and it is great to have a nice tidy space to use!
Before I go, I just wanted to say hello to anyone who is new to my blog. I seem to have gained quite a few followers recently, so welcome, it's nice to have you visit!! I'll be trying my best to check out all your blogs too when I get some free time on the computer. (Not that easy here, as the middle son has introduced the youngest to the wonderful World of Warcraft. 2 gaming nuts in the house now. What joy.)
So thanks for popping over and I'll see you soon!
