I seem to have misplaced it and now I just can't find it! Maybe it's just hard to be creative when you don't feel so great? Anyway, tonight I WILL stamp....I'm just going to force myself to do it, even if what I make comes out crap! Plus I almost forgot that it is my lovely niece Abby's birthday on Saturday and I still haven't made her a card! So that's first on the list...she won't get it til next week, but she's only 2 and I don't think she'll mind too much :)
My lovely landlady Anastasia took me shopping on Tuesday....I've needed a filing cabinet to store all my *work* articles (there are about 100 of them!) so that the ever growing piles didn't fall on top of me and wipe me out. Anastasia had seen one on the weekend when she was out...a two drawer cabinet for only $50!!!! So off we went to have a look and I picked that up....well not literally, cause it would have killed my back...but you know what I mean. It took 2 hours to put the stupid thing together and about another 4 hours to fill it up....now I remember why I stopped doing office work...I totally hate filing...LOL!
While we were out we decided to go to IKEA to have a look for some new curtains....I picked up some lovely bleached cotton tab top curtains for my room...they're brilliant! They let in heaps of light, but you can't see through them. They've made my room look much bigger and very light and airy....love them! Anyway, when you go to Ikea you cannot just buy one thing ;) I also picked up some lovely plants and white ceramic pots for them to go in....wanna see????
Now I will have flowers in my room all the time and hopefully they won't die and need replacing...LOL. I also picked up this mini chest of drawers (put it together myself too!).
It's really cute and will be awesome for storing away bits and pieces. When I saw it in the store I thought that the drawer fronts would look cute covered in DP....then I got home and measured it to find that it's about 3cm too wide!!! (just over 1"). So now I'm not sure what to do with it....any suggestions would be much appreciated :)
Finally, I thought I'd show you the finished alterations to the ribbon box. It's painted the same colour as the other altered things, the butterflies on top are from RW Laser Cuts, the big wooden flower is Kaiser, the pink flower is Prima and in the middle is one of the cute pink rhinestone brads that Madonna sent me. The little sparkly flowers all over are from Kaiser as well. You can't see very clearly, but the butterflies have tiny little pink rhinestones down the centre of their bodies too.
Well, this turned into a long post!!!! Better stop procrastinating and go make some cards...hopefully tomorrow I'll have something *crafty* to show you. I'd better or you all might stop coming by to see me ;)
Birthday cards, Redux
