A Postcard a Day - Wednesday 9 Dec 2015 - WOYWW 340

Good Morning! 

It's Wednesday! Today is desk-hopping day! Come and join us at Julia's blog Stamping Ground and show what you have been working on (or not).

My desk this week is in the 'craft-mobile', aka our campervan (RV). We have traveled to the coast to have some maintenance work done on the vehicle. As we need to be there early, we are spending the night on a nearby camp site and I have been doing some crafting last night. Here is a quick photo before i have to clear the table to have breakfast.

It's not just Christmas cards, I also made a birthday card for my cousin (Dec 27th), and I still have two more Christmas birthday cards to do.

I'm very excited as today I will be meeting up with a blog friend who lives and hour and a half from here, Kate Perry (aka Mamapez). She and her husband are coming to us at the garage (bless them), as we have no transport while our vehicle is being serviced. (Photos next week)

Our new house is coming on nicely. It's horrible having to live in a house that is in the process of being built, but we are making the most of it. The bedroom is now usable (although the wardrobes are not finished yet). We have slept there for the last two night and it is wonderful to sleep in a clean area.

Sorry I left a pair of socks on the bed. 

 The unfinished wardrobe area.
And a tiny en-suite toilet, as yet without a door but that's not a priority.
We have now been able to make the studio a little bit more livable:
 On the left is my desk where i would normally sit at my computer and do craft stuff. Notice the Ikea trolley? We had bought two and the second one (in the same colour) is now in the bedroom as it matches my 'colour scheme'.

Now we don't need to sleep on the sofabed anymore, we can use it as a sofa. Whoahey!
That's it from me. Sorry for the boring house photos, but many people have asked me for an update, so there.

Have a great week all,

  13. Hi Lisca, it's lovely to see the pics of how your home is coming along.Yes, Doug does work nights, so he sleeps till about 4pm, then gets up. So I stay downstairs, making it possible to get to the door before delivery people go away.Our postie is great, he understands, but I suppose all the various delivery firms are really busy, so the drivers don't hang around.Have a great week, hugs, Shaz #10 xxx
