WOWW creative times are back....

 My first LO in months! I thoroughly enjoyed getting my paints and brushes out for this one. I had a lot of help from Shimelle on UK Scrappers. She takes you step by step through how to make this layout, starting with splatting paint on the background. I nearly stopped at that point....I cant do that! I would recommend it to everyone it was great fun!!

Here is my new workplace, I've started a new LO from my sister's wedding 2 years ago. Just love the photo of my niece twirling in her bridesmaid dress, she loves the feel of the netting swishing on her legs!
 It is so nice to be back, I'd lost my creativity for a while! I haven't scrapped a LO for nearly 3 months! It had being playing on my mind since February, what would get me back to regular creative times now I have lost my early mornings due to starting a new job? I normal take up the dining table and shuffle it all when we ate but that's not ideal. So I'm now under the stairs! There is not as much room but that might make me a bit more tidy! I can but hope!
I'm off out today to buy a daylight bulb to give me more light under the stairs. On the positive side I can leave my scrap booking out so I can grab 5 minutes creative time when I want. The things we do to get creative, hey!

Your desk looks good in the custom spot under the stairs. I think you could even get a piece of wood cut in the curvy front, corner shape of your desk and install it as a floating shelf (or even 2) above your desk!

The bulldog layout is fab. You have great writing!

I would say that's the perfect space, and then the piles and shuffling for meals are totally avoided. Glad youre back to scrapping, bet that as you settle Ito your new hours, you'll get more and more into it now you have a dedicated space.

Lynn Holland said...

I like the curved shelf bit on your desk thats a great idea. I might have to get the other half to make me one.

I love your nook under the stairs! I do think it will make you more tidy... or make you expand out of your nook. It is nice not to have to pick up your stuff all the time. Like you said, you can grab a few minutes here and a few minutes there. Super great layout. The kids look like they are ready for adventure!

Awww, aren't your dogs just too cute! I had to put one of mine down Sunday - a heartbreaker.

Your desk looks very nice and tidy.

I'm so late visiting this week so I apologise...but better late than never eh?
I think your blog is so cheerful and I loved meeting your pooches. I have a shih tzu diva so I can understand when you say you are owned by Daisy Bo!
See no wonder I'm struggling to visit everyone ~ I keep getting distracted :D
Must dash....thanks for sharing Neesie #30
