New Year New Focus!

Hi all,

After having another hiatus, I am sincerely hoping to stay on track.

It has been difficult to become motivated given the weather conditions and the failure to get all our crop off...BUT....New Year....New Focus!

I have been asked quite a few times to take some piccies of my new stamping area, so I have started the year off with just that. I took over my daughter's room and just love the space and size of the room. (Magella is now living away from home, so I didn't kick her out of her room. I DID tell her she can't come back, coz I am now not giving it up for quids.) I inherited the purple, but decided I quite liked it. Magella helped me with the lime green curtains too, much to the disgust of her father!

Having JUST finished sorting through stuff, the room is really neat....well...as neat as it ever would get. In another half an hour it will not look like this as I am off to settle to the tennis and some stamping in the cool of the room.

It's funny....Neil is still calling the area Shell's Dungeon....I have been trying to re-educate him to Shell's artroom...or Shell's Studio.....but he is really hard to budge on his little catch phrase.

So here it is....



This is my teaching desk (but also general dumping ground when not teaching!)

My most favourite part of my house....My stamping table!

I really must do something with all the cards i have made. They are in all the little blue baskets. Under them is all my A4 card and paper.

All of the cardstock I have on sale.

Note the shoe hanger has a new mission in life....to store my punches.

Personal storage space. You gotta love those cabinets....My stars! You can fit a tonne of stuff in them! The Brisbane Open Tennis for 2011 is playing on the telly (the Aussie lass is currently in the lead.)
