I hope that your Monday has been kind to you.
The weather has been lovely here in my neck of the woods but is likely to be going downhill .. ready for it to pick up again at the weekend. Let's hope so!!
Here is my share for the day:
Backing Papers: Raspberry Road
Sizzix Die: "654901" Daisies #2
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
A pair of those old fashioned plastic fancy edge scissors
Ribbon and brad from the Stash Box
and that is it for my make.
Now for the tale of the window blind. My little craft pod is the very smallest bedroom in our house and I have been struggling by late afternoon with the sun blinding me and I have ended up having to pull curtains across and work in semi darkness !!
Anyway, I had a brainwave and asked hubby if we kept the old venetian blind that used to be in the small bedroom many years previous when occupied by little baby boy. A search in the roof space found it!! Yay!!! That should improve matters.
But then the problem was actually fitting the blind back up. We have changed the windows since then and the screw holes were now in a different place .. .. but the biggest problem of all .. .. my desk is pushed up to the window with no chance of it moving backwards or left or right. Which meant hubby needed to climb on the desk!! Eeekkk!!!
Big clearing up job to give him access and me lurking behind him with the vacuum cleaner sucking up the plaster and brick as he drilled. We must have made for brilliant and bewildering entertainment for anyone looking in.
I gave the blinds a good hoover, washed them down twice (they were very dirty as they weren't wrapped up in the roof) and then I cleaned them with Mr Sheen (all whilst the blind was in-situ and whilst perched on the top of the desk). They are sparkly like new again now!! Plus I have taken the curtains down altogether which has made my little pod much brighter and given the appearance of being bigger.
So all round much better .. .. apart from feeling very old whilst perched on the desk cleaning. What happened to the days when I could just leap up and down from anywhere and twist my legs any which way I wanted?!?!? I must have looked a right sight from outside .. .. I certainly felt it .. .. especially when I kept getting cramp in my foot!! LOL!!
Anyway off to the bath now .. .. and I will catch you again tomorrow.
