Wow – thank you for the fantastic response to my surprise giveaway! I have enjoyed reading your comments and listening to your stories of gift-giving and receiving!
It seems like quite a number of you like to squeeze and shake your parcels, and ask the gift-giver lots of questions. I have a very expressionate face that gives away everything… so it’s a good job there’s no web-cam here!
Okay! So here’s a cryptic clue: You don’t need to be a General to enjoy this textured bliss!
Has that got you thinking??
On to other ‘doings’! I am SO excited because I recently purchased a pre-loved desk from my local charity shop.
I love it! What do you think? It looks in great condition but does need a new paint-job; so I’ve left it in our family room until I get around to doing the messy jobs of sanding and painting. I need to get some good lighting for it too – as that’s one essential element that is missing from my current work space.
My friends know only too well how I feel about my creative area – I refer to it as “the teenage boys’ den”. I only have one teenager but my husband counts for at least two more!!! The room is cluttered and untidy with chip packets wafting around the room like tumbleweed… oh okay… I’m exaggerating about the chip packets but you get the picture?!
When I spotted this desk I thought I could live in shabby chic heaven… even if the rest of the room is covered in Xbox games and controllers… at least I can look directly in front of me at the country-style desk, and lose myself in it! I’ll show you step-by-step as I make my sewing-space transformation!
While at the charity shop I also picked up this little wooden crib:
I have started base-coating it in white, and look forward to making some sweet bedding to fit it. It’s a surprise Easter gift for my daughter! Talking of Easter, I also need to make a bunny costume for an Easter-themed day at school this Friday… wish me luck!
Until next time – hugs! Vikki xx
ps. My giveaway is open until next Wednesday – so if you haven’t done so already – you can still enter!
