It's been one of those days!!!

Today has been one of those days when you kinda wished you had stayed in bed!!! It all started out when I burnt myself on my hair tongs this morning....ouch!!! I then thought, I know I shall make some fresh bread for lunch....there's nothing quite like the smell of bread baking is there? Bread done, lunch time arrives and then I nearly slice the top of my thumb off with my very new and very sharp bread knife....another ouch...this one was slightly louder though....did you hear me???

I did manage to get painty today too, not the fun variety though, a spot of bedroom decorating, not my favourite pastime at all but I'll be pleased when it's done.

So......what does one do when one is painting a bedroom......well, one's mind wonders aimlessly whilst singing at the top of one's voice to Adele. Then bingo, I have a genius idea for a project with Grungepaper and I then can't wait to finish said painting so I can go and try it out. Biggest disappointment of the day.....no Grungepaper at home....will have to wait until I go back to work on Tuesday to see if it will work.....the suspense is killing me now.


The highlight of my day has to be the progress in my studio......lookey, lookey......I have work tops....am sooooo excited. One side of the room has worktops at a height for standing at.


The other side in front of the windows is at a sitting down height......perfecting for making lampwork beads.......now it doesn't seem such a bad day after all.



Enjoy the Bank Holiday tomorrow, hope you do something fun.....I'm off out with my daughters tomorrow.....can't wait!!

Your room looks like it is going to be fabulous.

hope you have not had anymore accidents and the day continues to improve.
Looking forward to seeing your grungboard idea come to life. Also to seeing your finished room.

My mind wandered when I was reading the painting part lol, wonder what Fresco Paints would look like on a huge scale .. like a bedroom wall, with crackle glaze too ... hmmm.

Ooooh Lynn it sounds like you have had a painful and slightly frustrating day, but the progress on your shed must be so satisfying. As someone who also crafts in a shed, believe me you will want to move in! Thise shelves under the work surfaces look really useful - you will have them filled in no time! Elaine
