Hello all! I apologise for the disruption in my usual service - I'm in Renovation Hell right now.
In the meantime, I've been keeping up with all the Stampin' Up! news - there's already a Backorder Report I'm afraid:
126853: Summer Starfruit Classic Stampin' Ink-Availability not yet determined
133322: Petite Petals Punch-Availability not yet determined
I'm living in my kind Parent in Laws' house with the children while our home is having wooden floorboards sanded and repolished; a new kitchen put in (with new stovetop, range hood, and new ovens), plus new built in entertainment unit and desk area in the open plan family room next to the kitchen. It is very exciting! Also very disruptive, dusty, chaotic.......you know.
I'm hoping to move back home this week. Not sure how much of a kitchen I'll have when I do!
Here are a few renovation "Before" shots:
|I'll be replacing as many cupboards as I can with drawers - so much easier to keep track of things, and less strain on the back. The two big windows mean we can't have any high cupboards.|
|We had a basic electric cooktop, and the range hood was never ducted, so it only served to circulate fat and grease throughout the kitchen. Ew.|
|Step 1: The old kitchen is gone! You can see the footprint of the old kitchen on the floor where it wasn't polished.|
|Here are the new cabinets!|
|New shiny floors!|
|New lights in the kitchen! LED down lights and a bright flouro will make a big difference at night.|
I'll post more photographs as more progress is made. We've already had some delay with Customs and backlogs. Hopefully it will be smooth sailing now (fingers crossed).
I hope my renovation photos aren't too boring - but they are all I have until I move back in at least!
