Settling In

Well, that's nearly the end of my second week in the new place and I'm starting to feel quite settled now. There are only a few boxes left to unpack, a couple more trips to Ikea to go on (you can never really have too many trips to Ikea, in my opinion!) and my craft room is becoming the haven of creativity that I hoped it would be. My quickness to settle has been partly due to the nice touches left by the previous occupants, such as this:

It made me feel all smooshy inside when I saw it!

And another nice feeling came from all the lovely New Home cards I received:

In between working on some commissioned cards, the design process for the Christmas characters has been ongoing:

Resulting in these cards which are destined for Folksy:

Percy Penguin

Stanley Snowman

It's actually not too hard to think about Christmas at the moment because there is a bit of a chill in the air; yesterday I had my first mug of Christmas Spice tea and I'm even thinking about where I'm going to hang my decorations!

However, when it comes to making my own Crimble cards, I'm a bit lax. Maybe I need to make that my next priority!

Glad you are settling in - the welcome was a lovely thoughtful touch by the previous folk.

Cute cards.

You'll have to let us see the craft room when you've finished visiting Ikea LOL
