Creative Chaos

Sunday 22 February 2015


 It has been a VERY productive weekend. We have dismantled an entire room, got rid of A LOT more stuff and now have furniture spread around the house. The builder arrives tomorrow to totally destroy the room, put insulation in the walls (half of the house is un-insulated - so very common in older NZ houses - our houses are NOT known for their warmth and it does freak immigrants out...), rip out the awful wardrobe (not to be replaced by a permanent one either - less space to store stuff one does not need!), rip the carpet up and polish/varnish the orginal floorboards. it will be a lovely enw room for the teenager!

The upside is I get to have his desk in the corner of my bedroom. I have sat here a lot this weekend and written many, many letters, ordered several hundred photos to be printed on-line, found (finally!) Creative Memories stock on Trade Me at a price I am prepared to pay (months and months ago the prices had skyrocketed when the company folded - someone finally put realistic , normal prices on to sell the items - perfect timing for me. Once this is all used, I will flick over to Project Life) and sorted out stuff. I am enjoying the desk and perhaps it will be easier for me to study too. A place to spread out all my pretty writing stuff :)

I've been scrapbooking up a storm too - very basic simple pages to just get it done! And packaging up a few sweet gifts for birthday presents for even sweeter friends. I have also started cutting out pj pants for winter to sew up. The teenager is now spread out in the lounge for the next 4-6 weeks or so... record player included.

I'm looking forward to showing you the progress of the room over the next few weeks.
I have loved this weekend - we have two very tired kids after a weekend at a huge scout camp.
