My beautiful Girlie. Steve and I bought Tess not long after we got married in 1994, Tess was 8 weeks old. Today we had Tess put down, she was 15. I wanted her to go whilst she still had her dignity, before she suffered too much pain. Tess had lost a lot of weight, her back legs were getting weaker. It was an easy decision but a hard one none the less. We will miss her barking at the kangaroos (whether they were there or not), tripping over her (as she loved to stand right behind you) but most of all her being there whenever we came home.

Rest in Peace, Girlie.

And now for the craft room

Well here it is, some of the photos were taken before I started hauling all of my craft stuff in to the room, a process that is still continuing as I sort through what I've got (lots) and find where I'm going to put it all so that it all flows nicely. I'm sure I'll rearrange the products several times before I'm happy with the flow. I've also yet to bring the central work table in. I know that this will seem to make the room a little smaller but it will be nice to be able to sit down and spread myself out.

I'm grateful for a supportive hubby who was happy to add a main bedroom, lounge, wir and ensuite to my craft room!

I'm looking forward to holding my first Kaszazz workshop in my craft room, I'm running the Bella Stationery Set Workshop on Tuesday 5th May. If you're interested in attending you can post a comment and I'll get in touch with you. Thank you to those ladies who have already booked. The workshops are something that I've been wanting to run from home for many years.

Here's to many happy hours spent doing arty farty things in my wonderful room.
