other things take priority for a little while!!
I helped where I could & kept out of the way the rest of the time & I am very happy to say this job is now nearly finished :) New plasterboard replaced the soggy stuff that crumbled onto the floor with the tiles &, in the hopes it will prove a better waterproof layer than the tiles did, it was covered in sparkly wetwall...
We replaced the old cracked sink & repainted the room, then hubbie made me a couple of shelves for the corner which I covered in good old sticky back plastic. I also covered the plastic storage for the shelves in the same pebble design sticky back plastic and voila! - one almost finished bathroom! :)
Okay you know it didn't go as smoothly as that but anyways... In the midst of all this I (rather selfishly) had a birthday. Work stopped for a little while as I opened my goodies, including these lovely handmade cards from crafty friends Cathy...
and these beautiful pressies from Lori!
Thank you so much I love them!!! Oooooh red gingham and little padded hearts? I think she knows me too well! I don't know that I will ever be able to bring myself to deface such a beautiful notebook by actually writing in it but it looks gorgeous sitting on the shelf in my craft space :) Hubbie remarked that I have been meaning to make myself a pincushion for a long time so now I could use this lovely biscornu, but I'm not sure I could stick pins in it so for the moment it is sitting next to my work chair in the living room where the sparkly white beads round the edge & the jewel-like button in the center catch any stray bit of sunlight that happens to show itself round here! The cards will stay up in the living room for a little while longer & then these two will join the notebook in my craft space because the next DIY job on hubbie's list is repainting the living room :/
I hope to be back with a couple of catch up posts before then, as long as I can find a little patch of peace & quiet to write in! Thank you for dropping by to visit with me today - I hope you are having a lovely week whatever this summer is bringing you :)
