Mid Week Sketch 41-13

OK, so it's not exactly mid week... even here in la-la land, where I am surrounded by boxes, paper and bubble wrap, disarrayed furniture and a distinct lack of the little things that make a house a home. Moving day in just 3 sleeps, and we are going to lose our internet in the next few hours probably, so that it can be switched over to the new house. So I thought I might give you this week's sketch early, as there is no telling in this marvellous world of technology, just how long it will take them to reconnect us.

The electricity, easy peasy, they do it when you ask them to. But phone, oh no, days... up to ten days! We are only moving within our suburb, not to the middle of nowhere. Um... can you tell I'm impressed, lol?

I can cope with most things - I am a woman of a certain age after all, and have learned during this "interesting" life, that stuff happens and we can live through quite a lot, actually, and remain intact. But please, I need my connection to the world at my fingertips. What great Pins will I miss? What fabulous blog posts? What happenings on my social network?

OK, I'm being dramatic. I have my smart phone... I am not entirely bereft, lol. I just find it interesting that it could take so long for the landline stuff. And really, I don't get to whine about much. Have to have my little rant now and then.

So... to the sketch. I had this idea for squares and it just grew from there. Hope you like it.

Normal communications should be resumed in time for week 42. Until then, think of me and the turmoil/fun of moving house and setting up my fabby new scrap room. :-)

{{And by the way, I don't know why the sketches are going blue at the moment. I'll look into that soon, and change them.}}

love Heather x ..always be a little kinder than necessary..

Another awesome sketch!!

Moving can be hectic... but it's exciting to move into a new home (even with all the craziness)!

And a new craft room too?!?! You will have to show a pic or two... when you're all settled.

Best of luck with your move. :)

dear Heather, your sketches are FANTASTIC!! i thought i would never make a scrapbooking page cause i'm a card maker and i was not interested in decorating photos, but when i saw one of your sketches, i instantly fell in love with it, knew exactly which photos i wanted to use and i think i might start again cause i find your sketches wonderfully inspiring. i love what you say about scraping for fun and not just for competition. so if you're interested, you can see my first scrapbooking page i did thanks to your amazing sketch here:
P.s: i think you should turn off word verification :)

Heather said...
