This is because there's not much progress on the kitchen yet; we're waiting for a green fridge! These are apparently very rare and created far away in Slovenia - by a magical band of ice fairies who appear only to those who really believe in them (?) Well, it is manufactured in Slovenia and I'm not sure that I believe it's ever going to materialize!
My table is what you might call busy - or a mess, if you're being frank! Somehow, I seem to have spread my activities right across the living-room! How does that happen? And it all has to be cleared away before tea-time!
Now as far as I'm concerned Magpieheaven is the cosiest place to be but storage is a problem! There are four of us in one rather small nest and , although we are not large, even for magpies, we each seem to accumulate vast hoards of 'stuff'. I have decided something must be done. I can no longer cram everything into the one little cupboard in the living-room, so in the spirit of 'If life gives you lemons...' I'm going to make some storage for my materials that can stand on a unit and - hopefully - looks nice while taking care of my stash! I'm die-cutting lots of chipboard shapes to go on these storage boxes I bought from Ikea ages ago and always planned to decorate. Fresco paints and Grunge Paste seem to work well on them. Watch this space to see how I get on with this project!
Before you start wondering, I don't use pepper and salt in my crafting - they're still on the table from last night! I must move them before I carry on. And there are my little purple-handled scissors - will I lose them before the day is out? Many, many thanks to all those kind visitors who stopped by Magpieheaven last week. It was wonderful saying 'Hello' to so many interesting people from here, there and everywhere - as well as those who are beginning to feel like old friends. Do hope you can stop by again this week. I'm off now to see what you've been up to! Happy Creating!
