Chewie...

Hi all...

Well.. my craft room is coming along nicely... could be quicker, but our precious little... should I say big... fuzzy, Chewie (Chewbacca) is still recuperating from his operation... this gorgeous puppy is the reason my craft room is delayed... but who could resist this cute little face... aawww... once I finish my room there will be a special mat for Chewie to reside... he is one spoilt little puppy... not mentioning he has cost us $4,000 in vet bills!!!!! ... still we all love him to bits!!




...above is his usual sleeping position... mmm... not very tidy...
...below... well... what can I say???  'Help mum... I'm stuck!!' He is such a 'dufus' sometimes!




Well... time to hit the sack.. Chewie is asleep next our bed already... snoring his head off...
I promise... crafty things will be coming soon... simply cannot wait..

Till next time...

Luv Deb... & Chewie... woof... xx

New Wild Wicks... coming soon...

Hi...

Well, the move has happened and the real hard work is beginning... the new Wild Wicks 'Headquarters' (as I like to call it...) reno's are underway! One little hiccup... our new puppy Chewie has broken his leg!!! We are having to spend all our time keeping him quiet after his operation... he has had his leg plated and the next couple of months are spent keeping him quiet... not an easy feat! Anyway, Wild Wicks will be underway again while I am on 'Chewie Duty'... here is a sneaky peaky at what has happened so far...

...above is my view from the window... nice... that is our main paddock.. looking at planting lavender, some vegies & fruit trees... below is my lovely partner in crime Torsten building the 'back room'... stage 1... this will be completed before the front big area is done so I can get some sort of order for all my Wild Wicks goodies for my online shop... thank you all for being sooooo patient... it will be open soon... I will keep you all informed..







The picture with the mischievous little Chewie is before the broken leg... getting into all sorts of trouble already... he thinks he is the project manager... checking everything out!!!

Well... I will keep you posted as the rooms are built and let you all know how far away the re-opening of the online shop is... thanks again for being so patient!!! My gorgeous man is out building as we speak... & I'm looking after the ratbag puppy... who has a plastic cone on his head to stop him pulling his stitches out... looking very sad... poor puppy...

Till next time,

Hello Daisy...

Hi all..

Well, my house has been sold and we are now living with 'the oldies..' ... feels like we are living in a motel.. the washing is done daily, the table is set every breakfast, dinner is waiting for us when we get home & hot water bottles magically appear in our bed!!! LOVE IT!!!

Today, I raided Mums craft cupboard for some much needed 'Crafting Therapy'... we also visited our local scrapbook store for some much needed supplies... you know how it is... I simply have no paper... needed more... and more... and more... oh yer... and a new die...  Mum bought this cute little Spellbinders Daisy Die... this is what I finished up with...




Well... 13 more sleeps till we move into the new house... simply cannot wait to play with all my beloved craft supplies again... miss my 'pretties'...sobbb.. sniff...

Till next time.

Just a quick post to show you some cute little table numbers were made for a friends mum's 70th birthday celebration a while ago... forgot to post them... mmm.. been a bit busy lately... anyway, the good old Silhouette Cameo came to the rescue on this project... quick & easy but very effective..




Well, time for breakie and a shower and think about going to work...

Till next time,

Debs Craft Shed...


Hi all...

Well... all I can say is its exciting times ahead!!! Our house has sold & we have found the house of our dreams... the second we saw it, we knew we simply had to have it... our offer was accepted and we move in on the 30th of this month!!  It is a gorgeous 2 acre property at Lewiston... the above pic is some of what I will be gazing upon from my kitchen sink... mmmm.... nice!!! Below is a view up the driveway...


I just wanted to share a few photos... (these were from the original add from realestate.com...)

This room will become the new 'Debs Craft Shed' headquarters... otherwise known as 'My Craft Room'... built-in cupboards will be put in & Torsten will be putting a huge 'communal' desk under the window...


Next is the all important kitchen... yes... food & coffee... err... and the 'occasional' bucket.. err... glass of red is needed to get the creative juices to flow... (that's my excuse & I'm sticking to it...)


Next is the outside area... I can see a few card making classes held here overlooking the property... nice... maybe a BBQ and a few glasses of medicine... mmm... nice...


The all important pool is there as well to cool off in summer... Torsten has big plans for this area... will keep you posted!!!


... and drum roll if you please... the little 9 meter x 6 meter shed on the right is MINE!!!!! This will become my new Wild Wicks showroom / workshop / shop / place of smelly wonderfulness... not to mention the occasional card making class!!! The front will feature a sliding door with veranda, big window cut out the back to have a view of the property, fully lined  with split system for heating & cooling... Torsten has a month off to do it... simply cannot wait!!! I will post pics of all the progress... I am toying with the idea of 'paper bagging' the floor!!! This is a very cool inexpensive way of flooring... check it out HERE ...


So, all this has been why I haven't been 'Crafting' lately... all my lovely goodies have been packed and put into storage... very sad state of affairs... I honestly feels like my wings have been clipped...

29 days to go... bring it on!!!

Till next time,

Calico Coffee Flowers...

Hi all...

Well, its been a while as my craft supplies are packed and awaiting a new home so not a lot of 'crafting' has been done... not happy, but a beautiful new crafting room is on its way... if all goes well, our house is now under contract so hopefully only six more weeks till we move out... VERY busy time at the moment!!!

Anyway, this little calico flower was make a few weeks ago but haven't had a chance to share... I plan to put a nice antique button in the middle... but yes, you guessed it... they are packed in a little brown box along with the rest of my 'pretties'...

It was coloured with coffee and a bit of Stampin' Up! Espresso ink... I have heaps of nice lace & calico stashed, so when I get a new room, I will be definitely making more...




Time to finish my coffee & hit the sack...
Till next time,

Luv Deb x
