When I posted that we'd be moving house, and there might be a little break between blog posts, I could not have anticipated that my hiatus would be quite so long!  A month down the track, we are still battling to have internet connected at our new property.  It is just unbelievable to me, in this day and age, that we can't get internet.  I've experienced feelings of agitation, withdrawal, frustration, and ultimately defeat  ... I've just had to accept that it is all beyond my control.  We're still working on finding a viable solution, so please don't give up on visiting my blog.  I hold out hope that soon all of this will be a distant memory.

I have not created anything for two months, and am missing my "sanity saving" outlet desperately.  It will be at least another month before my new craft room is properly fitted out - boy, this move has been an exercise in patience.

I am pleased to say that I have internet access for a week.  I'll be busy catching up on what's been going on, online!  We are away at our holiday house, and, although it's situated in the country, I had no problem having internet connected - go figure.

I have commandeered the dining room, and set up a temporary crafting space.  I'm hoping to get lots of "play time" this coming week; it's very hot, so I will happily stay indoors, in airconditioned comfort, crafting to my heart's content.  Here's everything set up, ready for me to start creating tomorrow:

 I look forward to being able to share with you some of my creations soon.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone - here's to a great 2016!

Our Just Add Ink challenge this week, courtesy of Tina, is to "Just Add Something Starting With C" to our papercraft project.

I have used corrugated card, Calypso Coral, and my Crazy About You stamp set, to make a bright and cheery "thinking of you" card.

Listed below are the Stampin' Up! products I used to make this card.  If you would like to buy them for yourself, just click on any of the thumbnail images, to be taken direct to my online store.
Make sure you check out the rest of the Just add Ink Design Team samples; you're sure to be inspired to play along with us!
