Happy Birthday to me ;)
Yup, it's all true - I'm 38 years old today, although I don't feel any more grown-up than I did at 21. In fact it only seems like 5 minutes ago that I was 21. And just to make me feel good about myself, Faith is running around telling everyone that will listen that I'm 38 today lol ,Willow, ever the thoughtful one has been asking if she can have all my craft stuff when I die - charming eh?
The kids are actually a bit upset, because dad is offshore and so they haven't been able to go out and get me anything, so I told them I'd be more than happy if they either drew me a picture or made me a card, so that's their plan when they come home from school today. Graham will be home this afternoon, so I thought I'd treat myself to some new rubber from funkykits, I ordered 3 of the newest release Sassy's - Windswept, Skater Girl and Call Me, along with one of the new Leanne Ellis stamps and the Vintage Baby stamp. And they arrived this morning, perfect timing!
Well, there's no rest for the wicked, have loads of tidying up to do before Grahamy gets home, so I'll leave you with some pics of my new hutch......
Well after I tidied up the desk last week, I decided that the shelf above my desk just wasn't cutting the mustard anymore. I had a bit of a brainstorm and decided I wanted a "hutch" for my desk, googling it came up with plenty of results, but most were more than I had planned to spend. As you know I like to "adapt and overcome" so I decided to use the faux leather dvd unit that I'd bought in Asda ages ago to hold all my 6x6 and 8x8 papers. Well of course it was shorter than my desk, so I nipped down to Asda to buy another 2 and the fab news was they were on offer - 2 for £15.
So this is how it looks....
See those baskets on top of the hutch? those were another bargain, in the bathroom accessories part of Asda I found a pack of 3 wee baskets for pennies.
