Ta-da!!

Im going to share a sneaky peek with you of one of the aprons I have started - it still needs some ribbon and buttons adding but other than that im pleased with the fabrics I got yesterday - something about them said BUY ME!! (its funny but this seems to be happening quite a bit lately - should I worry more for my sanity that fabric is speaking to me or the bank manager who im sure is having heart failure!) lol


Ok so its not a secret that I cant drive - yes I know I need to learn and I SOOOO want to have that bit more independence. I have my provisional license and have failed tests in the past but the thing is I know I can drive as im more confident now - its just the initial getting behind the wheel and some of the idiots on the roads now that scare the pants off me! Do you know we nearly got wiped out by an 18 wheeler that was bombing it down a country lane the width of one lane!!
Anyways, what prompted this outburst (lol) was todays prompt over at HS:MS - drive..... unfortunately this is the only 'vehicle' that im allowed behind the wheel of!! lol :)
Can i tell you about a special lady?? Meet Heather ...... not only is she a fantastic artist but first and foremost she is a mum, mum to 4 wonderful kids - go read her story and I dare you not to be touched by the heart this woman has! Heather has the ability to make you laugh within seconds of meeting her and she is so creative it has to be contagious (please dont shatter my hopes! lol)

We were looking for some storage for the kitchen to pop all the clothes in for the kids to take upstairs and put away and Heather came to the rescue! She suggested Ikea and the Trofast collection - well, I swear im in love - this unit now has pride of place in my kitchen and has had so many oohs and aaahs, is used all the time and I dont know how we managed without it! Thanks Heather!! :)

EDIT :- I made the Papercraft Junkies Design team!! yayyy :) ------------> see my blinkie for a link to the forums!!

I like your photo :) The eyes on the car are so cool.

And your kitchen solution and the sneak preview of the apron look beautiful. Love the colours.

Oh the aprons are looking great :)

Scrapbook papers have spoken to me for a very long time and I don't think there's anything wrong with hearing voices at all :D

Love the car. Neat idea :)

We have Ikea washing baskets upstairs that the children sort their clothes in to for washing, (hot whites, cool colours etc) but not thought of having something downstairs too :)

ooooh, I can't wait to see that apron!! That black and white fabric is sooooo yummy - I want some! And isn't Ikea the best for storage ideas. I think I may need some for my studio!
