Painting ladder FireplaceI've just about finished going up and down this step ladder. (Legs say yay to that!)  Just two more walls to go in the laundry and the wall painting is all finished.  (Don't look too closely at my bits if you come over - not sure I'd pass as a painter!  Was fun though.  John and I make a good team. And white is a forgiving colour to paint with.)  

Floors have officially started.  Lots of banging at our place today while the crew nail down the cement sheeting upstairs.  Tiles start next week - I can't wait to see what they look like in the rooms.  Getting closer to the finish line!  


Host parcels are running VERY late - apologies.  Just waiting on a table or bench to be dust free so I can spread out and get chopping.  Will pop a little extra in to make up for the delay.  


For those customers waiting for the Purple Posy Ink from our new batch of in colours - that colour is proving to be difficult (for weird technical reasons I didn't quite catch.)  Just letting you know it is not looking like it is going to be coming soon - still in the hands of the ink mixers.  Thank you for being so patient.  I'll let you know if I hear anything further. 


Almost the weekend.  What have you got planned? I'm escaping the renovating chaos (and the teenagers - wink) to head back to a lovely craft retreat for a couple of days with friends.  I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to pack - my craft room is a crammed full disaster zone.  Think I might pop one of our new kits and some colouring supplies for some low stress creating.  Just what I need to recharge the batteries.  

Have a great weekend.

Cheers, Sue

Time For Some Colouring? Start Your Blends Collection

This meme made me laugh today.  


It also reminded me of the therapeutic benefits of doing some colouring.  Concentrating on colouring takes your mind off some of the daily stresses and helps you relax.  

Blends projects

Our Stampin' Blends are lovely to colour with and come in your favourite Stampin' Up! colours which helps you coordinate your projects.  

Find them here and start your collection today:   Stampin' Blends

Here's a video with some colouring tips if you are new to colouring with alcohol markers.  

Remember - for every $90 you spend on products during July you will receive a $9 coupon to redeem in August.  Bonus!  After you've placed your online order, be sure to keep your emailed coupon code/s in a safe place ready to use next month.

Renovation Update:

We are still painting painting painting.  First coat on the walls finished, and we're planning to get through the second coat this weekend.  A week til the new flooring goes down.  I can't wait to see what the tiles look like.  In the meantime I'm getting a good workout going up and down the step ladder and holding my arms up while painting the wall divider bits.  Who needs a gym?!


Have a fab weekend and get in touch if I can help with any Stampin' Up! questions.  

Cheers, Sue
