Never trust the colour on the box!! I decided to dye may hair darker for the autumn/winter and chose a nice shade of deep mahogany - or so I thought. Well, it's probably my own fault coz my hair was slightly lighter than the before ones on the 'colour results' pics on the back but, suffice to say, I'm now thinking of applying officailly to become a Ribena berry :)

I'm off out later and if my friends keep on looking at me strangely I think I'll be going to Boots on Saturday to buy a nice, safe, chocolate brown!!! Mmmmmm - talking of back in a bit - just going to raid my Thorntons bag :)

Crafts-International - some candy up for grabs

There are some lovely Laura Ashley stamps up for grabs over on Jude's blog, why not pop over and take a peek...

Candy Time!!

2 of my stash orders arrived today so, as promised, I now have some blog candy up for grabs.

Just leave a comment on this post and a link back to here on your blog - easy peasy!!! :)

I'll pull a name out of the hat - or my OH will - and announce the winner on Friday 3rd October at around 8pm. I'll contact the winner via their blog - I've put a reminder on my phone so I don't forget - memory like a sieve me!!

Well, I think that's all apart from to wish you good luck :)

I need my wrists slapping!!

We got our bonus from work today so I thought I'd have a bit of a splurge.......and I saved nearly £20 on a few of my orders by using discount codes - a couple of which came from the booklet that came with Crafts Beautiful magazine (usually I always forget about discount codes that I've seen in mags and on forums) - yay me!!!

As usual, I've spent FAR too much (and still a QVC craft day to go) but can't wait for all my lovely packages to come through the post - I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas :) I was practical too - I ordered 10 stackable paper trays from Storage4Crafts - and saved 10% by using a code!!! And I've ordered some bits for the blog candy so as soon as it arrives I'll get a pic and post the details :)

I'm sure I'll have forgotten to order something though as I've been on about 10 sites looking for stuff :S

Some new cards - at last!!

It seems to have been so long ago since I made any cards so I thought I'd better make a couple quick before I forgot how! Hopefully I should get into the swing of things before too long - I've still got a load of sorting out to do to put things in some sort of sensible order but I'm hoping to order a bit more storage for papers and things over the next couple of days (along with some celebratory new stash) so I can get the craft room sorted for once and for all :)

P.S. I haven't forgotten about the blog candy - I'll be sorting it when I order some new stash :)

Okay - so here's what's been happening on the craft room front (item names are included just in case anyone wants to know what they are)...

Small Expedit unit

On top of the small unit.

Desk (1.5m Vika Amon table top & Vika Artur trestles. Snille swivel chair)

Look - I have legs!!

Well on the way now...

....we went to Ikea yesterday to get the rest of my shelving etc and - yay - they had my legs in stock ....we got a full refund and they gave us the two trestles for free because of the hassle we've had trying to get them :)

It looks fairly organised now but I've still got some shelving to get put up and I need a blind for the window. I also have a lot of sorting to do as I want to try and rearrange what is in each basket/box and put like things together to, hopefully, make me a bit more organised when I'm making cards but no doubt I'll end up putting that off as it will mean everywhere being in chaos again!!

I'll try to get some more pics on later so you can see where I'm up to so far :)

Coming up - Blog Candy :)

Once I have got my room sorted (or as near as) I'll be off on a shopping spree to buy some new stash and decided that, to celebrate, I'd offer some blog candy too so keep your eyes on this space over the next few weeks. I haven't decided whether to make it into a challenge or just a give away yet but will let you know nearer the time :) You never know - if I still can't make my mind up I might do one of each!!
