Mid Week Sketch 41-13

OK, so it's not exactly mid week... even here in la-la land, where I am surrounded by boxes, paper and bubble wrap, disarrayed furniture and a distinct lack of the little things that make a house a home. Moving day in just 3 sleeps, and we are going to lose our internet in the next few hours probably, so that it can be switched over to the new house. So I thought I might give you this week's sketch early, as there is no telling in this marvellous world of technology, just how long it will take them to reconnect us.

The electricity, easy peasy, they do it when you ask them to. But phone, oh no, days... up to ten days! We are only moving within our suburb, not to the middle of nowhere. Um... can you tell I'm impressed, lol?

I can cope with most things - I am a woman of a certain age after all, and have learned during this "interesting" life, that stuff happens and we can live through quite a lot, actually, and remain intact. But please, I need my connection to the world at my fingertips. What great Pins will I miss? What fabulous blog posts? What happenings on my social network?

OK, I'm being dramatic. I have my smart phone... I am not entirely bereft, lol. I just find it interesting that it could take so long for the landline stuff. And really, I don't get to whine about much. Have to have my little rant now and then.

So... to the sketch. I had this idea for squares and it just grew from there. Hope you like it.

Normal communications should be resumed in time for week 42. Until then, think of me and the turmoil/fun of moving house and setting up my fabby new scrap room. :-)

{{And by the way, I don't know why the sketches are going blue at the moment. I'll look into that soon, and change them.}}

Mid Week Sketch 40-13

I don't know what it's like where you are, but it's hot here. I have succumbed to putting the air con on while I work. I prefer fresh air, but it's either air con and work, or fresh air and snooze, LOL.

This week's sketch uses a background die cut shape and a tag to make a pretty page. I know you have both those things lurking in your stash somewhere! Or the means to make them. Pull out what you have and get busy, and you will have a page done in no time.

**Share a page made with a Scrappy Sketch from October for your chance to win a flower pack handmade by me. I have a prize draw on offer, just a random gift really, for one lucky scrapper. All you have to do is leave me a comment under one of the sketches from October and make a page using any one of those sketches to be in with a chance. I look forward to seeing what you do.
