WOYWW, I don't have a craft room!

Hello my dear bloggy friends!

Been away again but believe me I have a couple of good reasons! First I am teaching my niece German - she is finishing high school and one of the exam subjects is German language so aunty is helping out, the other thing is I am suppose to get some guests from England and I decided to have my lounge and kitchen painted ( ha, ha the ones it concernes I am just joking - you are not the only reason I am doing this !), so I had to clear out everything fom those two rooms and stuff it all in the other two rooms one of which is my craft room so here is the result of that happening:
My desk.......

my craft room - don't have a shock ha, ha.....

So much junk in there - I can't even move......of course the kitchen and the lounge are all stripped down - waiting for the man to come......oh my if you leave the kitchen and the lounge out of that sentence ....well I better not go there - you can see I am going a bit mad....

and lounge....

anyway you can see that I have been very busy - I was thinking I must be mad doing all this with my knee hurting like this but I think it has to do with preparing to retire - you know how they say a women makes a "nest" when she is about to have a baby, well I think I have to redo the whole house before I retire as I won't be able to do it when I am not working - there that is my excuse! Still do not think I don't have anything crafty to show you - as I wasn't here last week I can now show you the ATCs that have been sent off  VERY late mostly because of all this going on....
Here are the ones I made - they are  all different as I don't do "series", I also tried as much techniques as possible! Ladies that are getting them please love them as they are my babies ha, ha....

So there - all done - I will come back with photos from my recent trips but please bare with me as I am a bit busy now!
Love and hugs to all

P.S.: I must be mad as I took a picture of all the ATCs I have already recieved but didn't add them to my post! So here they are.....





  1. Oh wow it will all looks so lovely when it's finished so it will be well worth the chaos while it's bing done.
    Your ATCs are really stunning....I really can't wait for mine to arrive now :-)
    A x

  2. Ha, ha kako podobno je v našem stanovanju. Se tolažim, da bo potem lepše. Kot kaže je res potrebno " zamenjati streho" pred upokojitvijo :)).
    Tvoja serija je čudovita, polna lepih barv in in v vseh mogočih tehnikah .... res lepo.

  3. glad you like the ATC, Jo and I think we may speak on the plane!!! we can't seem to catch each other 'in' she is coming to our house the day before I think - I'm pretty sure it's me driving to the airport - but Niall offered so I don't have to pay parking then realised the petrol cost more than the parking fee!!!
    we will skype you the day before we leave & give you any last minute details, I'll email the flight details etc this evening, hugs,

    I cannot wait - three weeks - yeeha


  4. Wow! at the craft room!!
    Love all the ATC's

  5. loving all those wonderful atcs - wow what a set of beauties... Good luck with the decorating - just smile through the dust! Thanks for calling by...Sarah at 2

  6. You do sound to be having a busy time - hope those visitors behave themselves in your beautifully decorated house!!!!! Fab ATCs - glad you like your little dumfling. x Jo

  7. Stripped and ready for the man to come, huh??? Is there something you're not telling us, lolol? That is one dumped in space, never mind, it's not for long and it's for a good cause!!
    I love your ATCs - I posted my version of a swap on Monday so it'll hopefully be turning up with you soon :)
    And Mavis and Kathy sound like two good time gals who like a laugh to me!! Maybe one day we'll meet up and raise a glass of champagne in celebration, eh??
    Hugs, LLJ #1 xx

  8. Love the atc's that are being sent out (can't wait!) I am glad my atc arrived safely - and good luck with the decorating! Helen, 3

  9. You busy bee... all that going on bless you... its so hard to do anything when the home is being decorated... it will look fab when its finished... love the idea to have it done before retirement. Fabulous ATC's Hugs May x x x#20

  10. Oh my gosh! That is quite the disaster area you have with two rooms stripped bare and two other rooms piled high. If I were you I'd be tempted to sit in a corner and weep. I think whoever received your ATCs will love them and keep your babies safe. They are great!

  11. Oh dear, I hope Blogger didn't eat my comment. Good luck with the painting. That room stripping and piling would be too much for me. I love your ATCs and I know they will be well loved by whoever receives them.

  12. Hi Cardarian I wish you speedy workmen so you can get your space back again. More beautiful ATCs WOYWW Hugs from Helen 14

  13. Oh my word, what a lot of work and clearing! Will be worth it but argh!! Your ATCs are lovely.

  14. Am sure J & D will love your kitchen when they arrive.
    Great atc's you made and glad mine arrived with you.
    Hope the knee is soon feeling better and you are able to get about much better.
    Hugs, Neet (like the White Rabbit - late) #59 x

  15. It looks like home ... The messy bit I mean. You know we don,t mind mess !!! Can,t wait to get there and will be home from germany on Sunday so hope to speak to you , and donna, soon. Got connection for a while as dh is watching footy in a bar so I am taking advantage of their free Internet. Having a joyous time with mein Kleiner fräulein xxx jo xxx

  16. I am loving the ones you made and the ones you received. This was such a good idea of Julia's!
    Hope your guests appreciate all the hard work you are doing.
    Happy very belated WOYWW

  17. Hi there, I also worked in a Library and recently retired from our local Main Branch where I worked for 25 years. I'm just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  18. You have your hands full that is for sure, better to the rooms quick so you can get back into your art room and play. I hope you knee holds out, don't do too much.

    Oh and great ATC's too.

    Have a great crafting week
