How to make a kitchen steps one through AAAARGH!!!!

Hullooo!!!
Well, because you've been asking, (and I do love to share..LOL)Here is a very brief before and after kitchen post....
So..the kitchen renovation goes like this:
From this:
A makeshift kitchen on a scrapping table..
To this:
Granite benchtops..white 2 -pac doors and yummy red kitchenny bits.
So pretty...everything new.
Lovely Lovely...

and then...
unfortunately,
to this:
In the middle of baking a roast,we heard an almighty smashing noise..and the oven glass on my brand new oven blew up all over the kitchen.The pile on the floor is some of the glass we swept up from all over the kitchen...The oven was a Daniela.
So its not nearly as pretty as it was.But it will be better..I have a new oven on the way...
So now? Its time to move on to the bathroom. ..
Maybe I'll have a little rest first though....
More soon Debxxoo

Knock Knock!!!

Hulllooo!!!
Yes, Its me!!
No, I haven't disappeared..Promise!!
Since the Country Paperarts Retreat finished, I have been madly renovating my kitchen..and let me say..its almost done..I will share pics soon....just waiting on one small addition first...
What have you been up to??? Share!!!
Me??I had a notion I needed a cupcake bearing girl on my wall in the kitchen..so I have a large painting on the go....will share some soon..
but I have also been doing a couple of challenges for the upcoming Camp Mojo..
this is they:
..a teensy little ATC.... using the sketch offered...
..and the red white and blue challenge led to this little postcard sized number...
..this is one of the projects I taught on last months' Tarisota Style School... its an altered jewellery box using my favourite papers in the whole world...Graphic 45...*sigh*
..and some of you may remember the tiny little hand painted portrait pendants i made last year...well..Im over that for now..LOL..but Ive been making some collage jewellery..my beautiful friend Lisa and I are going to have a stall at the Tamworth Town markets before Christmas .....*squeal* so therell be some of my pretties (inspired so much by the two loveliest gypsies I know)there for sale....

and then..theres something I want to show you that Ive been meaning to...
a lovely lady from school, Tanya...asked me if I would be able to help her find some owls for a tattoo she wanted to have...I couldnt find any that i thought fitted what she was after..so, I drew some...and she had them tattooed on her back exactly as I drew them!!!
She will have colour added as time goes on, and shes promised to share pics when she does..but this is it!!
...How cool is that!!!!! They look awesome in skin!!.she wanted them to signify herself and her beautiful 2 babies...cant wait to see them coloured!!!
Thanks for letting me share Tanya!!
Well..off to do something creative...because I can!!
More soon, Love love
