WOYWW - For Those Of A Nervous Disposition....

...Look away NOW!!! I missed the fantastic WOYWW crew led by Julia last week... there was me thinking that I will give it a miss for one week cos you don't want to see loads of cardboard boxes do you?? And that I would have the new Room of Stash organised and ready for showing off by today.... errrrrm... here are some pics of how the room is now... one week after moving in to the new house all I have managed to do is clear a space for the desk and the essentials...it is a pigsty in there, filled with boxes from every other room in the house too....




For some reason the men who did the moving decided cos Hels had the most boxes, then they would all go into Hels' room!!! And...I cannot set anything up yet cos a desk has to be rebuilt, furniture has to be moved into place before boxes can be unloaded.... oh, woe is me!!!




Listen to me moaning on, actually, I looooove my new room... even in the messy boxey state now, it is really bright and bigger than the old one! Look at the state of my desk though...you may notice a mirror under it, along with my hairdryer...cos it is doubling as a dressing table at the moment... erm, nope, bedroom boxes still not unpacked either ROFL




I am really loving the new house - it is perfect, bigger, brighter and it is soooo quiet here.. all I can hear are the birdies chirping in the trees and the odd hooty owl... perfect! Anyway, before I turn into a house bore *whatcha mean I have already?? LOL* over on the Gingersnap Creations blog today there is a brand new challenge. The theme for this one is Kraft. Now, over here in the UK, and me being a bit dense couldn't get my head around Kraft... I mean...do I use Dairylea spread??? Nah! Silly me, it is the colour Kraft...which is like a buff colour, but you are all a whole lot cleverer than me so you knew that anyway! So, waffling on as usual... the only sad thing about moving away from Lutonia is that we have had to leave our lovely next door neighbours who have been the best! Everybody needs good neighbours *sang to the tune of the popular Australian soap that, yes, I am addicted to ROFL*







So, we have had to leave Sham and her lovely brood of gorgeous kiddlies and cos I am going to miss them (not to mention the divine curries and pakora's she used to make for us) I have made a thank you card - just a quicky one, using Kraft cardstock and some Wendy Vecchi stamps - oh boy, I have missed using these stamps, I shouldn't have favourites but I can't help it with these LOL




So, there you go - a messy and boxey room, a card and a very happy and contented Hels - even if the back has given up the ghost - and, thank you to everyone who has been asking after AlfieCat. He loves his new home. He was soooo good on moving day, apart from the yowling in the car journey he has settled in, he is still confined to barracks at the moment, til he gets used to the new place - and he never went out at the old house cos of the busy road - he is sitting on the windowsill eyeing up the birds though...mmm, think I may have to watch him on that one LOL Don't forget to give Julia a visit... this WOYWW lark is the best, especially if you are a nosey parker like me ;O) TTFN

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh my, this is going to be amazing! Give yourself a break over the unpacking - it takes ages...the trick is not to settle when you think you've got what you need done and there are still loads of full boxes! The boys are good at that......
Happy new home Hels!

Helen said...

I'm so glad you showed us all your boxes! Good luck with sorting it all out... I envy you, not a lot! Now I understand why we've not seen much of you since you moved, lol!! Are you behind some of those boxes?
Love the card you made, beautiful stamps!!

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

It'll be a long hard slog sorting all your stuff out!

Fiona said...

Esme said...

I think we have that same mirror that's under your desk. For a makeshift one it looks pretty darn good!

voodoo vixen said...

LOL Hels, those photos remind me of when we came back from South Africa... and the shipment arrived 6 days after DH left the country for another assignment leaving moi to unpack all 348 boxes... and they were all labelled 'ornaments' which didn't really help with knowing where they should go without actually opening them and unpacking them!! I don't envy your task but it will be so worth it when its done!! Hope Alfie loves his new home too??

Twiglet said...

Thats a lovely card Hels - good luck at getting your room just right and enjoy your new home, its sounds brill.

Lothian Crafts said...

How lovely it will be once you get the boxes sorted. kraft is cheese to me as well.

Lori said...

Love the bright, new space! What I can see of it, anyways, around the boxes...lol. You'll love the quiet, I know I do, we're in the middle of nowhere. Makes for great creativeness...lol. Alfie will LOVE it, and the birds, lol.

Heidi said...

Oh this is going to be a wonderful place for you to creat! I can't wait to see all the new idea/creations coming out of that room, and off that desk!

Linda Elbourne said...

craftimamma said...

Wow, Hels! That room looks biiiiiigg!!! Can see you're going to be one happy bunny once it's all sorted. Don't envy you that job though as I think it's worse than packing it all up.

Good luck.

Hugs
Lesley Xx

PS Love the card BTW.

DonnaMundinger said...

Oooh looks like you're making progress, Hels. Definitely looks like lots of space. So happy Alfie is happy in the new house. Change can be quite traumatic. Your thank you card is beautiful! xxD

Karen said...

WOW Hels, even though its full of boxes your new room is super-lit isn't it??? Thank you for showing us your boxes.

I wonder how Alfie will cope with the big wide world. Do let me know honey XXX

Rosie said...

It's going to be great, its full of light, you survived and you have a desk!! What more could anyone want? Oh, erm yes, stash ....

Foil Play said...

Your desk already looks well organised, and the card is beautiful. Your new home sounds lovely, hope you manage to get fully dettled in soon :-)

Val said...

Wow - your room looks the size of most people's 'master' bedrooms. Bet when you have finished it will be fab. At least it looks if you might have more stash than me! When we moved two years ago, I didn't think I was going to need all the space I have, but now it is overflowing ...
Hugs

I dont think I could get a desk organized when there were so many stray boxes filling my room. ... I remember moving 5 years ago and how long it took to get boxes unpacked.

Love that card ...design and colours
Have fun with your new room

Ooh Hels, glad to see you survived the move! The craft room looks like it's going to be fantastic. Where (roughly) did you move to? Knowing Luton as I do (used to live down the road in Milton Keynes and Newport Pagnell) it won't be very hard to best it!! Wonderful card for your old neighbour too.

Hugs
Brenda

Mummylade said...

sounds like it will be fab when it's all done =)

scrapcat 1 said...

looks like your space will be the place to be when you've got it sorted now if you're like me that may take some time, looking forward to seeing your progress with your crafty room.
Sorry I'm a bit late but I will get to everyone eventually.

Tracy
