I know, I know......you are all starting to get that little niggle in the back of your mind arent you? The one that says "I feel like Ive forgotten something or something is missing"!. So before you start patting yourself down looking for your keys or looking through your handbag to make sure your purse is there, checking your pockets for your mobile and checking the kids to do a head count.......Its ok............the only thing that youve been missing is ME!!!!!!
Heehee, Jeez I have a high opinion of myself dont I? Lol. Im so sorry I havent been about to fill your heads with some (opps, Im mean "all"!) of my silly nonsense and making you laugh until tea comes out of your noses (again....high opinion of my comedic value too, lol), I havent actually fallen off the Giants Causeway and been swept out to sea. I have been MIA for a number of reasons. Ok, theres one major reason for crafting MIA and it has to do with the simple little fact that my Craft Room has serious issues! Yes......my craft room has issues....not me. Its issue is that it refuses to tidy up after I make something in it! The cheek of it! And now, Scrubby has decided (with a little help from wee Jiminey Cricket on his shoulder......thats so much nicer than saying "nagging wife"!) to decorated and is painting the bathroom and kitchen, pulling apart and kitting out a big cupboard with shelving and storage, putting shelves up in my craft room amongst many other decorating and DIY thingies. The bathroom is now complete but the rest isnt. And living in a teeny tiny 2 bedroom bungalow means space is a major issue so guess who's room has been turned in to the DIY and decorating dumping ground? Yep......my craft room. And thats on top of the fact that Im a messy pup to start with....opps, I mean my craft room is a messy pup....not me....never me!
So my room refuses to tidy itself up, my desk......well my desk looks like a tip and somewhere in there buried beneath paint rollers and dust sheets sits my big comfy chair......sitting neglected and alone (Queue lonely, sad music), shivering and scared by its lack of use and feeling distinctly abandoned from the lack of my squishy bum sitting on it! Did I just say my bum was squishy?? I meant to say "my athletically toned perky bum" (aye right.....maybe 10 years ago Loops!!).
So I have created nothing, nada, zip, zilch....not even one tiny flower petal and I feel like I am getting Craft Withdrawal. Oh yeh.....thats a real Withdrawal thingiemabobber. It can be fatal for mojo if left untreated. And as my Craft Room is out of bounds, the Craft Doctor (my very own professional craft doctor-ey mind!) is telling me I need a dose of a crafty shopping spree at least once as week. And if thats not incentive enough for Scrubby to work quickly, well I dont know what else is, heehee!
Ive even been trying to get decent photos of the Journal I bound from scratch and decorated for Scrubby but as Northern Ireland appears to be the grey-ist place on the planet the photos are AWFUL! AND I uploaded my Bookbinding tutorials and in the ones I talked in, I sounded like a bloomin' Leprechaun on fast forward and when I did remember to slow down my talking, I just sounded like I was drunk and then to top it all off Youtube gave off about the music I had put over my talking instead and you'd have thought I had committed a murder!!! So they have to all be redone again. So Im sorry I have had nada to show you.
If I dont get me some crafting soon, Im gonna go crazy!!! Oh and if I havent visited you in a few days.....well, Super Geek strikes again! Scrubby had to reinstall Sammy....my laptop.....Sammy the Samsung! Im sad I know. So not only can I not get into my craft room but I was laptopless for 3 days.....that sounds kinda wrong doesnt it? But Sammy is back to full health again....WOOWHOO!
So now that I have bored you all to tears with my tales of Woe......Im outta here. Hopefully I will have something to show you soon. Dont forget me! lol
