What You Do When You're Not Crafting...

Well as you may or may not have noticed, I've been pretty much absent from Blogland recently.  The reason is I've had hardly any time to craft as we've been renovating our kitchen.  I thought I'd share a few pictures of the progress so far.  Now, "few" may not be that accurate, lol.
Before... 
My Husband and Son pulling out the cupboards

The Tools


The Temporary Kitchen, in my Craft Room!!

The temporary Washing Up facilities, in my laundry

Kitchen All Gone!

No Kitchen... except the oversized fridge!

New Cupboards... gone for a lot of drawers, and a fridge that doesn't dominate the room! 
Granite tops done.  Display cabinet, waiting for glass doors and shelves


Tall display cabinet, also waiting for (frosted) glass doors
The oven's connected, the hotplate isn't and I still don't have a sink or dishwasher, but the plumber's coming on Monday, so yay for drainage, lol.  The electrician's coming on Thursday for the hotplate and new lights.  It's going to move a bit slower from then on as we are heading into the Summer break here; the building industry in particular pretty much shuts down over Christmas - but as we are in that industry, it means we'll have a bit of time to do prep work for the next stage which is tiling.  We're re tiling the floors in most of the house (except the formal living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms!)- we've got to chisel up 72 metres of ceramic tiles, we've done about 10 metres and the dust was UNBELIEVABLE!
We're tiling my craft room too; we were just going to change the carpet, then when I got down on my hands and knees to see what all the black flecks were I found they were spots of glue, woops! So I decided to tile it instead, which of course means emptying the whole room - 2 Expidits and 3 full height Billys from Ikea - as well as the built ins, I think I'm looking forward to that less than chiselling up tiles, lol.
Anyway that's what's been keeping me busy, I'll post some pics when it's completely finished.  I have made a few cards, I'll be blogging them over the next couple of days, until then I hope YOU at least have some Happy Crafting, Donna
