In a muddle!

Good Evening to you all, and many thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving all  the lovely messages.

Well today has consisted of trying to sort out the spare bedroom and make it more of a crafty space. We got rid of a huge wall unit as it felt that the walls were folding in on me, but where to put all the stuff collected over the years. It also housed my laptop which isn't wireless. I've had to be quite ruthless about what I'm getting rid of, but so many bits and pieces hold memories it,s difficult.  The dining table and livingroom floor is covered with stuff until I can think of what to do with it all.  We bought a new desk and Alistair put it together so that I could get the computer up and running again, and I did, amazed by myself that I managed to get all the correct cables in the right holes. Tomorrow will see my poor hubby puting together the other storage furniture and hopefully well get it sorted out.  However cardmaking is off at the moment but here is one I made a couple of months ago
The image is a Kanban stamp and colored with promarkers, I think the background papers are freebies downloaded from somewhere and bits from my stash.  The card was made for our friend's son who is having a tough time just now, he has learning difficulties and has been failed by the care system and is now in hospital.  He is such a lovely person, and as I am in the social care business I feel quite angry about it, but he does not live near us, so a card was the best I could do.  I'm told he has it by his bed.

Anyway thats me for tonight, Downton is on soon and I need my weekly fix of beautiful garments.  Goodnight and hope to be back tomorrow,
