As I said, it's been somewhat stressful but made much easier by my BFF Lorraine, who let me stay at her place for a few weeks until I found somewhere of my own. Last Monday I moved into a cottage in Newtongrange, which is about 10 miles from my hometown of Edinburgh (capital of Scotland for those of you not in the UK). I absolutely LOVE my cottage....it's in a village but only minutes away from Edinburgh. Lorraine lives a few minutes walk away and everyone else is very easily within reach.
With all my laptop problems - and the big move - I haven't been able to scrap anything for a couple of months....but I plan on doing some "before and after" layouts of the cottage as soon as I get to the "after" stage! It's very hard work when you're doing it alone, but I'm having a ball. I wonder what hubby will say when he sees my pink themed kitchen!! :)
Anyway, I am back now, so will hopefully be able to get back into my scrapping/designing now that I'm getting settled....and I seem to have solved the laptop problems for the moment. What a great day for me to come back too! Did you know that today is NSD - National Scrapbooking Day? There are tons of events going on in honour of NSD and the one I'm going to mention here is a special sale at Ahhhscrap.....30% off storewide! Also, every day this week you'll find a fab freebie on the Ahhhscrap blog. As if all that weren't enough, you can get this month's collab kit for free by spending just $10 in the store today! (May 1st 2010)....and you'll find that several designers - myself included - have sales running this week. Everything in my part of the store is 50% off so don't miss out on some great deals!!
I have a new kit - just released today - called Forever Friends - which I hope you'll like. You can get it on sale, 50% off this week only, at Ahhhscrap.
That's it from me for today....happy scrapping and thanks for stopping by!
