My [new] creative space
Hi, remember me? I thought that it was probably about time that I re-surfaced and shared some of what I've been up to. Like so many others, I've been finding that life's a bit too full to blog lately. Suffice to say there's been big changes (new house, full time job, etc.) since the last post. I have managed to squeeze in some crafting though, and am really happy that in the last month or so that's included some time in the shed.
This week I've finished (well, manufactured, undercoated and installed) some narrow shelves on the side of the small one's wardrobe. The wardrobe itself is built in, but only made of chipboard, meaning that the Cyclist and I installed the shelves by drilling and screwing straight through the end wall of the wardrobe and into the timber. They'll get their final coats of paint when we paint the room sometime later this year. In the meantime, they're housing some of our favourite reads (except when Abbie's emptied the bottom two shelves so she can sit on the floor and 'read' aloud to herself instead of sleeping).
Abbie loves them, and so do I - its an idea I've been wanting to use for a long time, and this's the perfect spot for it. She's two, so I figure we have a while before picture books are packed away. After that I can see them used to show off favourite pictures and photos.
