Hello, hello

Hello... it's me,
I'm singing ADELE can you hear me?

So much has been going on out there. I've tried to keep up but excuse me if I'm not on the ball.
What's changed in the blogging world? Is there anything I should be doing differently?

I needed a card so at long last decided to sit and have some paper craft fun.  It's been too long!

Wishing from Purple Onion was my chosen image. Nothing is more relaxing than colouring with Prisma pencils.  So here we go...........

 I like to pick out colours to match any design paper I'm using on a card.  

Once the image is complete I add some embellishment.  Pearls on the sentiment and some liquid pearls to pick out the seed heads and add some dimension.

Here we are ready for the mail box.  Quite Happy with the finished card.....sorry about the lighting.

I'd like to add this card to the Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge this week :)  

Where we're at:

We've been in our new home about 6 weeks now and they've been 6 very busy weeks.  We had around 200 boxes to unpack and guess what..... a large percentage of those boxes contained my craft goodies.  Sewing as well as paper craft so I think you can guess what it was like to sort through and find homes for everything.  Still working on the last few boxes but waiting for some additional cupboards to arrive.

My new craft room is in fact the 4th bedroom upstairs. I have somehow managed to get most things stored in a double wardrobe!  Considering I had the granny flat in the last house with plenty of bookshelves/cupboards etc. (that all stayed behind....boohoo) I think I've done quite well.  Lots of things have had to go but, it feels good to de-clutter!

Thought I'd share a couple of photos of my new space. Still getting used to it and the lighting in here for photos etc.  Notice no computer on the desk?  Sad to say my big screen Mac didn't like being turned off and stored for a year.   It crashed after a week on being switched back on!
I'm thinking I might just carry on with my laptop and  a bigger monitor attached.  One less item to keep updated......right?

Anyway, good to chat......If you call past leave me a message so I know you're still out there  :-)
