Time Flies

oh wow its been awhile since I've updated this poor neglected blog of mine… but lots have been happening around this place of ours including a house move…

After only been in our house for 7 months we got the letter to say that the owner wanted it back and we had to move out… we were devastated that we had to move again but it has all turned out for the better well its actually much much better…we are now fully moved into our new house and its so much nicer and bigger then the last one which is good for us… i now have a new scrap area in the lounge room and my awesome husband has been so good to me and spoilt me lots with new desk and area that he has built for me in just a few short weeks… love this guy to bits definitely a keeper that's for sure…

Here are some pics of my new scrap area
