We Moved!

Well we successfully moved house without any problems - so exciting to be in our own home and really make it ours. I would love to show photos but I have not yet unearthed my camera cable - I can't remember which box it is in, and as it's so small it isn't easy to find! The unpacking was initially quick but we have now reached a kind of limbo - we have everything that is essential out (stash included of course!) and are not decided where the rest of it is going to go. All our furniture seems tiny in these larger rooms, and somehow there seems to be less of it too.

We spent a couple of lovely days in the garden basically taking a couple of the beds back to basics - can't wait to have the time to fill them, I can see myself getting into gardening! Michael is keen on a veggie plot - we have space for one and so he has chosen onions, potatoes, tomatoes, parsnips, spring onions, carrots and salad leaves. We also have a big pot of strawberries, yum!

We've had our main bedroom decorated already - we picked some lovely wallpaper from Laura Ashley and matching paint in duck egg white - very fresh and sophisticated! Now we just need to choose a carpet, order furniture and get a door (no, there's no door, and all the other ones upstairs are original so it's going to be more difficult to find the right thing!).

We spent last weekend at my cousin's wedding - it was a fab day and so much fun, especially the white chocolate fountain - amazing! I have incriminating photos of all involved in the stick-as-much-food-on-a-stick-soak-it-in-chocolate-and-stick-it-in-your-mouth debacle lol!

A couple more layouts from my scrappy weekend away at the beginning of March - can't have a post without pictures!
Hoping to locate the camera cable very soon!

Last weekend I went away for the weekend with a fabulous bunch of girlies for scrapping, wine and laughs! We had plenty of all 3, and I was fairly productive even if I didn't do as many layouts as last time we went away together!
This is one of my layouts from the weekend - the photo was taken in Hawaii on our honeymoon last year, I loved the bold colours of this mini-kit from the Scraproom, and I just had to use those gorgeous new Thickers - perfect for a lizard layout lol!

We now have the keys to our new home! We picked them up on Thursday and last night we camped overnight which was fun. We move in properly on Monday - the removals are coming bright and early so we are last minute packing. It has migrated slightly from very organised boxes with numbers, colour coding and relevant contents to just-shove-it-all-in-and-see-what-happens lol!

More from the weekend to some soon, along with the obligatory new home pics of course. That is if we don't get cut off from the internet for too long!

Sarah's Cards Feb Kit

I can now show you my designs to go with Sarah's Feb kit - such a fun mixture of colours and patterns from Pink Paislee - perfect for fun summer photos!I had great fun with this kit, and subscribers are coming up with some gorgeous pages too. One of the most usable parts of the kit was the Prima tape - this stuff is genius, I love it!

Box city

Yup we are now officially living in packing box city! This pile arrived a few days ago so we've been cracking on. I do like to be organised so each box has a big coloured sticker on it which corresponds to a room in the house. It also has a number and we have a master list to tell us the contents of each box number. I think I may have said this before but I have just come off nights and my brain is mush lol! I am finding lots of things I'd forgotten we even had - always good. we've just under 2 weeks to go til removals, but we get the keys next Thursday! SO SO EXCITED!

Tonight I have been getting sorted for my weekend away with the fab lushalicious girlies. I am sooo looking forward to a couple of days to scrap, gossip and have a good giggle. I have yummy new CHA stash and I am ready to go!
