No Time

I've had no time to craft this week.....DD1,OH and myself had the week off work.....DD decided to have a clear out of her very small........very messy bedroom.......which developed into a major make over.......which developed into re-painting the walls....which developed into a total re-decoration.......which developed into replacing and then laying a new carpet.......which led to.....a visit to the tip with a car full of her rubbish and old carpet.....which has led to OH and me finally collapsing in front of the TV tonight!!!!!!
I have managed to get a few photos from christmas time onto the computer.......and despite this not being a great photo......it's one of my favourites.
The start of a new family

And good for your DD for sorting out her belongings. I need to do the same thing to my closet! Enjoy the rest of your weekend. xo

Wow - you painted and carpeted in one week! Ambitious. Hope your daughter is loving her redecorated, less cluttered, clean room!

It's amazing how one thing leads to another, but it sounds like you've been really productive.

Yes, it does sound like a really productive week! I wish our project was a start and finish within the week type of thing!

That's a really lovely photo :-)

Well done with all the sorting - I'm so relieved that when I get my kids to tidy up it doesn't develop into a redecorating frenzy lol....

Sounds exhausting~!~
We are decorating at the moment too but it hasn't been as bad as your experience by the sound of things. :)

What a beautiful family photo! One to treasure definitely.
