House Updates

Hi All

Things have been progressing quickly with the house at last.  I think next week we will be at lock up and so I have been spending weekends shopping and trying to get quotes for bits and pieces for when hand over finally happens.
 The most important room in the house my "Scap Room".
 This is the front view - of course!
From the dining/kitchen down the hallway towards the front door. LHS doorway is my room and the RHS doorway is the scrap room.
 From the back yard facing the street.  Lounge window and the doorway is into the garage.
 The living area.
Alfresco and down the LHS of house.  Mum sticking her head out the laundry door.  (Her favourite room)
 From the dining room showing part of the kitchen and part of the lounge out to the alfresco.
 Stepping through the front door.  First doorway on the LHS is the front bedroom (Guest) and on RHS is the entrance from the garage.  Along that wall is my beautiful huge linen cupboard.
And lastly the side view of the house.

Sorry to all those people who are not looking at my site to see house photo's but as previously advised this is for my relatives and friends who are wanting updates.  Easier than emailing photo's.

Hopefully some scrapping soon.

New Home

Hello Again

This post is for my family and friends in the East that have been asking for me to share some photo's of the house developments.

This is a layout I have created with the first photo's of the footings and the slab being laid.  "Finally the slab is down".  It only took 10 months to get started!  I was told I would be moving in by Christmas 2012 but they actually  only laid the footings on 12/12/12.

This is the view from the Alfresco into the open plan living area.   These are two sliding doors out to the Alfresco one from the lounge and the other from the kitchen.  The doorway is to the hallway down to the bedrooms and the front door.
This is the view from the lounge area.  Dad and Wolfgang are standing in the kitchen.  The door off the kitchen is to my  (very tiny) laundry and the other is down the hallway.
This photo was taken today.  The roof timbers are all done and it has been measured for the Colorbond to be custom cut and hopefully will be installed this week.The power was all run through the walls today.  The Electrical and Gas Contractors are going to be a bit annoyed though as the metre box is supposed to be relocated to the LHS of the house and probably should have been done before they hooked it all up to the box.
We have many photo's that we take each time we go but this gives you an idea of what is happening.
Will share again once things progress a little more.

Love to all.


Scrapped At Last

Hello All

I probably haven't got any blog followers left since it has been so long since I have posted.  Still in the process of building my house so not much opportunity for scrapping as all my belongings are still packed away. Went to the country on the weekend with a girlfriend to help her out at a scrapping retreat so with her assistance and some new photo's I have created a few layouts to share.  Won't be able to share all the details of the layouts as I am not as organised as usual.  Basically this is just a post to share with family and friends rather than promote products.  Looking at my layouts I am so lucky I have got my gorgeous niece to scrap.  Thanks Maddie for sharing your photo's with me. x

I have tried quiet a few different techniques on some of the layouts using texture paste, gesso and stamping but unfortunately they haven't photographed with all the detail.

If you have stopped by to take a look - thank you.

Fingers crossed it will only be a few more months until I have my scrapping room all set up in my new house.

Until next time take care and happy scrapping!
