Busy, Busy, Busy

Hello everyone. I hope you are all well and enjoying the glorious weather we have just now. I couldn't believe how warm it was today - washing was out and back in within about 2 hours, lol.

I don't have a card to show today but I did want to show what had been keeping me so busy the last fortnight! My mum, wonderful woman that she, is decided to give her bedroom a lick of paint. Now, since mum has very sore hands and wrists at the moment - they think she has rheumatoid arthritis - what this really means is...Suzanne has to give the room a lick of paint, lol. Not that I mind BUT...what started as a plain and simple job turned into a workathon! AFTER painting, she decided that she wanted coving up - to hide my not so straight paint line. Then she did a feature wall with this gorgeous paper - she did that part! THEN, she wanted a new bed from IKEA. Gorgeous and the flat pack boxes fitted into the car no probs...What she didn't tell me was that it was going to take me 5 HOURS to build the blooming thing!!!!!
So, here's a wee pic until I can get a card made...I am making one in between all this madness but, I can't show them till the end of the week as they are DT cards.

Anyway, That's what I've been doing and I really don't mind because she does lots for me and I actually quite like much so that I've now started mine, lol. And, this is what I am faced with this week...

Thanks for taking the time to look. Please leave a comment so I can return the visit

HI Suzanne,

You have done a great job on your mum's bedroom! arthritis can be a pain, my gma had it really bad.
I just love the look of the room, it's very catching doing some renovating isn't it!! lol..
Your weather sounds lovely, I live in tassie and it is freeezing at the moment, to hang my clothes out I need gloves and then make a run for it to the warm house!!!
your blog is great, hopefully you can check mine out, I am new to the world of blogging, a friend introduced me to it not long ago, I just love it now, i was up late last night making a vintage felt clutch bag!!! am pretty pleased with it,
happy creativity
Kate :-))
