A Winner, a Challenge & a wee craft room update

Hey everyone, Happy New Year! I hope that 2011 holds lots of wonderful things in store for you and your loved ones. It blows my mind to think that i’m having a baby this year! All of a sudden this all feels VERY real and very close! I start maternity leave on 14th February, and already i’m seeing Valentines cards dominate the blogosphere, so I guess the final countdown has already started! (eeeek!) ♥

A week or two ago, I offered up a copy of Scrapbook Trends For the Home Inspiration book to one lucky reader. I’m sure you had all thought I had forgotten about it! heehee! But, not so – i was just waiting until the New Year to announce a winner. So here goes: Start stalking your mailbox LINDA as you are the lucky winner of this book. Please email me on lez (at) hungryheffycrafts.com with your address so i can get this shipped to you. Congratulations, and thank you to everyone who entered.

A New Year, A New Challenge!

For those of you who may not know, I help host the Paperclipping monthly challenges over at the Paperclipping Community page, and now that we have survived holiday season, we are celebrating the New Year with our January challenge! Each month we pick a few topics that have been discussed either in the Paperclipping Roundtable podcasts (a scrapbooking podcast full of great conversation and lots of laughs) or in one of Noell’s fabulous video tutorials (some of these are free, so be sure to check them out by visiting her website) The challenges themselves are all about having fun and finding inspiration, so why don’t you check out the challenge topics for this month and see if you want to join in. The details on how to enter can be found here.

Mission Craft Room continues

Yes, we are another few steps closer!
And every time i think about it, my heart beats faster and faster! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! (*jumps up and down clapping hands and grinning from ear to ear*) ♥

With New Years eve celebrations out of the way and after getting through the inevitable New Years Day full of movies and mooching about, we finally finished putting together the furniture for the craft room. I can’t explain how exciting it was to see the crisp white shelving standing against the wall like a blank canvas, awaiting for me to unleash my creative wrath onto it! In my mind i can already see where certain items are going to live and its very exciting!

I wanted to share a few photos of where we are just now. I was hoping to be further along by now, but there is no point unpacking boxes when there is still drilling and sawing to be done -otherwise every project would be coated with dust and nastiness. ugh! They do say that good things come to those who wait….(i hope they are right!)

I dreamt of these for so long…

My darling scrapbook paper storage unit, the best present ever!

A bookcase to the untrained eye, but i’ll not be using it for books….just wait and see!)

Just a few more bits to do, so we are off to B&Q first thing tomorrow to buy skirting board, roller blinds for the window and doors, wood for my bookcase (a secret project that may or may not work out), some wall plugs for the shelving and rails and then hopefully i’ll be ready to rock and roll! { ♥ sigh ♥}
