New home ....

.... the decorators have been in today - and these guys are just brilliant!  They've finished Ben's room, my room and made a start on the upstairs landing.  And when they'd finished painting, they dusted, cleaned all the woodwork, hoovered and put back most of the furniture.  They are polite, on time, clean and tidy.  Did I say I was impressed with their work?  So nice to find workmen who are GOOD!

And I've been productive today too.  I've been phoning mortgage and insurance companies, getting quotes for work that we need to do and finally when I'd finished all that, I even managed to have an hour in my craft room this afternoon.

I have a notebook - a really pretty one that I got from WHSmith - and I keep all my notes about the house move in here.  I decided to make a pretty label for the cover.  And there really was only one set of stamps that I could use for this - the cottage from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I just love the colours on the notebook cover so I used them for the colour of the cottage.


Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - A Cottage Home
Ink:  Memento - Tuxedo Black
Promarkers: Pastel Green, Turquoise, Cool Grey 1, Cool Grey 2, Soft Lime, Gold, Grass, Magenta

Now, I'm off to check that the paint has dried and move some bits back into our room.  That's all for today, I'll see you again tomorrow!

Why did I only buy the Christmas version of this set!?!?!? I must have been having a stupid day!

I love the colours you've used - no doubting what the notebook is for now and so much nicer than just writing "house move" on the front ;-)

Great Idea - I keep a similar book listing home improvements and major purchases for reference. Maybe mine could use an improvement on it's own!! Your book is gorgeous. Love the colors and the warm feel to it. Did you know Thomas Jefferson kept a similar journal at Montecello? You'll have to see it when you get here!!!

Terrific depth in your colouring & I love the way you have used the colours of the notebook for the image.

Looks like you will have your hands rather full.
