Today hasn't been a great day in the great scheme of things.
I am not good at having work done on the house and it has all been left in a bit of an unfinished state which I am not happy with. The company were quick to take our business, the work was due in January or early February but they were too busy - it took 5 hours in total!!! We were patient and waited and waited, communication was bad. Until they came to send the invoice - within five minutes of supposedly finishing the job. It was a lot of money and it has left a bit of a sour taste in our mouths to be honest. We will see what tomorrow brings. If I spend that sort of money on a job I don't expect to spend time cleaning up and having a brand new product left in a dirty state.
However, on to nicer and prettier things - the Pickle Barrel sale is still on at PBP.
This is the amazing collection by Fayette Designs which I loved
and this is what I made with it - the first one I have been able to scrap of my beautiful model with her fella.
and the amazing collection by Jumpstart Designs - I absolutely loved the folk art feel of this - just gorgeous
and this is what I made with this collection
Today I am thanklful that
- the workmen have gone (I think)
- that the job is done (I think)
- that it is OK (I think)
- that I had a few hours at art to take my mind off my worries
and Jacky I didn't see the coverage on TV until today and am mortified I was in the shot! Not as sad as Nigel - he hosted and MC'd the whole event and wasn't even seen!
