Well it is that time of year AGAIN when everything stops…………. Happy Christmas to everyone out there.
It has been such a busy time the last few months, teaching, making and deciding that I need more space. My cosy garden shed is becoming too cosy with unfinished projects and loads more fabric etc. So I have made up my mind to move into the garage. All of my hard earned cash went to a smashing local builder who completed all of the work within a couple of weeks, including putting in a double glazed window for me to keep the draughts out. Now all I have to do is work out how I am going to afford new flooring and all the furniture to fill this lovely big new space.
I have spent hours on the net researching cardboard furniture! Very cheap, but it will take me ages to complete a small cupboard. Never mind if needs must, and my needs are desperate!! Luckily a friend of a friend works on the market and has promised me all of his cardboard boxes, so I have a supply. Everyone thinks I am crazy but if it is going to save money why not? Cardboard furniture seems to be a big thing in France so it is possible, and some of the creations I found on the net were out of this world, but practical and the main thing, sturdy…..
