Still waiting........

Hi everyone on this very soggy bank holiday monday! We usually have a full house this weekend as we have a bbq for my eldest son, Dom's birthday but Lara obviously didn't want to be so far from home and we are on standby for the baby :o)
My craft room is finished at last and it's very organised although it will take a while for me to automatically reach for a particular tool or stamp! I'm determined to keep the floor clear and have had a good clearout! It's amazing the things you find hidden away, come and see my new room:


7' x 3' sloping under front steps, used to be the coal hole!


Hope to keep it tidy!


Very useful peg board storage


You may have caught a glimpse of Dom's birthday card on my desk and here it is:


An embossed background from Tim Holtz with silver gilding wax to highlight. Some silver card and a piece of dp to make a book and a stamped pen fussy cut and gilded too. The other card lying flat is waiting for some liquid pearls to dry so maybe next time although that was the first card that I made today in my new room!

Love your card Val, very masculine. Your craft room looks very neat and organised. Will it stay that way long ? I know mine never does.

Your card is gorgeous, Val! Great texture and colours. Hope you get to see the family soon, including the baby! Your craft room is looking great. I wish I could keep mine tidy - I could do with having a big clear out and getting organised!
