Retreat Weekend is upon us...

Finally the 2nd retreat weekend is almost here.

Following the success of our first weekend last Nov, Sandra and I are holding another fun filled weekend at my house this coming Fri, Sat and Sun.
All the ladies are new to us and I'm looking forward to sharing our love of the Stampin Up products and crafting in general.
We have lots of lovely projects planned aswell as each of the ladies getting their free stamp sets and some extra goodies.

I have been busy working on the pillow gifts which I will be back to show you once the weekend is over so as not to spoil things for the ladies.

If any of you are intersted in future weekends with fun filled projects, freebies and friends don't hesitate to contact me.

Till the next time

More Mermaid Moments...

Hello and Happy Tuesday to you all...

I don't have a project to share with you today but I just wanted to let you know about my new blog Mermaid Moments.

I am keeping this blog and hope you will continue to follow me here for all your Stampin Up needs and inspiration.

My new blog is a more personal insight into my Mermaid Moments although it will still feature crafty projects, mostly those where the images are non Stampin Up.

I do hope you enjoy being part of my new venture and look forward to seeing you over at Meramid Moments.

I made it...!

Firstly let me say Happy New Year to you all.

To be fair I made it out of my craft room some time ago but was sooooo busy moving into my new room there just wasn't time to post.

I'm happily settled in there now and the creative mojo has returned (think it got lost in all the 'stuff' that was in the girls den).

Its been a long time coming and not so much a "labour of love" for my other half but he persevered and without too much fuss. Here he is levelling the floor prior to tiling. Let me just say buying an old house to do up seems like a good idea till you realise nothing is straight or level!!!
After bucket loads of self levelling compound ( a misnomer, as it certainly doesn't self level lol), he finally was ready to tile.

Fully tiled and ready to go!

I was soooooo excited last fri when we got to this stage that I didn't sleep too well that night and was like a kid at Christmas waiting to move the shelves etc in. 

So from this...............

With a little help from Caiden.......

I finally ended up with this......

Its still a work in progress and believe me you do not want to know how much stash is still stored upstairs but I finally have my own place to go and escape the madness that living in a house with 4 kids and 2 huskys brings.

A HUGE thank you to my gorgeous OH who has never once moaned despite being nagged by not just myself but Jeannie via Skype to fnish the room.

Till next time
