New goodies

Since doing Teresa Collins' class earlier in the month I 've really liked the look of the Bind It All - this is what we used to bind the album we made. Since then I have been working on a few little albums/journals and felt that I needed a Bind It All. So I am selling a lot of my old stash that I've not used for a while as well as other stuff and thought this would be a good way to justify my purchase LOL. I couldn't wait though as I found it for such a good price at Craft Superstore so went and ordered it and it arrived today. I also ordered from Papermaze and got some acylic covers to use with the Bind It All plus an American Crafts Slick writer pen - I got a brown one in my last Studio Calico kit which has been great. That order also arrived today, so great service from both companies :)

Yesterday I went on a school trip to Twycross Zoo with Ethan's school. I help in Ethan's class and had 5 children with me - Ethan and 4 of his friends. It was a lovely day and great trip, everybody including teachers and helpers, had a great time. I was very tired after though which wasn't helped by being ill. If I'm honest I probably shouldn't have gone but there was no way I could let Ethan down - he was so excited about me coming to help and has been desperate for me to help on a trip.
I've still not managed any layouts this week, I've just not felt up to it. Hopefully I can get back scrapping soon but I have a lot of sorting over the next week that might get in the way. I'm going to be having my own scraproom which I'm really excited about. Our front room has not been used much, apart from for drying and sorting washing, since the back room has been decorated etc. When we first starting talking about what we could use the room for I wasn't too keen on it being a scrap room - I just didn't want to take up a whole room in the house! We would rather the room be used though so it will become a scrap room and I'll also have a sofa and TV in there so it can be used as a sitting room too. John is off work next week and we are getting the new sofa then hopefully the desk and storage for it. If there is time too I'm going to re paint some of the room too and change the colour. Hopefully this time next week I'll have some photos to share.

Your new room sounds exciting Lisa. Sounds like you'll be able to turn it into a relaxation room for the family?

The Bind-it-all is awesome. I need to use mine more!
