My craft room is now all boxed up along with the rest of our house ready for our move. We move out 14th november and have to go into holiday cottages as our house won't be ready to complete until 5th dec so everything will be in storage - not ideal but it had to be done to get our sale through. No crafting for me until mid december at the earliest.
Just hope it is not snowing when l make the 400 mile journey on monday.

Thank you for stopping by and for your comments x Susan x

I have been taking a bit of a break from crafting and commenting but am now back and rearing to go.
I have had a lovely holiday in Florida but was relieved to be coming home a day before the hurricane.
We have been busy packing up our house ready for our move. Our house sale has been on/off a few times but looks like it is definately happening this time.....talk about stress. I am so looking forward to not having to make the 800 mile round trip every couple of weeks to help out with the grandchildren.
I need to spend the next week making my cards for the DT's before l pack all my craft stuff away....nightmare but exciting times.  I will tell you more about our new place when contract exchanged on my house here., l got my priorities in order ... a nice big craft room ;)

Hope to see you over on the challenge x Susan x

I am late with my card and post as not enough hours in the days for me at the moment.  Quite a lot of my card and papers are packed away so l had to use standard white card for this inking project - it turned out ok but my smoother Clarity card would have given a better finish.

I had a trip up to Scotland this week for 5 days to help settle my grandchildren back into school, all went well. A long drive for me 403 miles each way but worth it and thankfully this time no traffic holdups. The weather was absolutely glorious around that area and l managed some good walks everyday and a couple of short runs too in a bid to increase my fitness.
Hope to see you over on the challenge x Susan x
