The end is nigh!!!!!

Well it will be soon, only got about 10 boxes left to unpack yippee!!!
As you will see I have been making cards & all my stuff is now sorted out, so I really have no excuses now lol....my mojo seems to be working overtime tho, think its wanting to make up for the week without making anything lol
I will be taking pics of my new little crafty space, when the light is right, because I think right at this moment, its looking like we are gonna get wet again.
Last night my old neighbour Ammara & her boyfriend Pete came around for a takeout, & great fun was had by all...she is one of the things I am gonna miss most about our old house. We didn't spend loads of time together but we did get together maybe once a month for a crafty night...gonna have to try & carry on with them me thinks lol I hope you are all having a fab weekend..
