Moving Day - Again!


Morning Fluffers!

Yes, in a couple of weeks, we are on the move again! We always knew it would probably happen and I always knew it would need to happen quickly. I wasn't wrong! So, if you have my address, please don't post me anything for the time being...

We've had a mad few weeks already. We visited our house in Devon last week. (I didn't tell you in case you thought of pinching the bathroom from the garage!) And guess who forgot the dongle? Well, technically I didn't forget it, as I very specifically packed it. It's just I very specifically packed it in a different bag to the one I took to Devon! Ahem! And, who decided a dongle should be called a dongle? I mean, really?!

We've just got back from a couple of days in Derby, where we have been organising a new house to live in. After all that, I was pleased to get into My Very Messy Snug last night. This fabby sketch is from Sketch Saturday, so I will play there with it.

Now, where did I leave the bubble wrap...?

Love how this turned out! Gorgeous image and fun colors to play with too! I don't recall why you move about so much, but you amaze me girl! I detest moving and I cannot believe that you are able somehow to keep crafting despite frequent moves. However, if you are like me and crafting is what keeps you ticking, then you really, really need to do it! Best of luck with all the bubble wrap girl!

Fluff, your cards are always intriguing, to say the least. These large buttons are so cute and love the braided twine - works so well with the swing on the cute image which is colored ever so perfectly. I love the floral piece with the wonderful border punch - thinking about getting that one - much better in real than on the package. Have fun moving - one of the many things I just do not like! ;-)

Daniele said...

Lindsey said...

Okay. The bubble wrap is in the bag that you thought you had put the dongle in and the dongle is in the fridge.!!! Simples. Don't let Tractor Boy anywhere near the removal van. 'The Doc' is making his list of stratigic moves as we speak.
Luv Muver.
