Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

I Supervise so well!

Good afternoon - I'm holding my wrists out, ready to receive 'Bad blogger' reprimands! Lol

I'm sorry I've been so poor at posting, though I have tried to visit and comment in between supervising the menfolk in their bid to transform my boy's bedroom before the carpet fitters arrive on Tuesday - I hate scrabbling at the last minute so insist on it all being done with days to spare.

So for today I thought I'd share a couple of cards I've squeezed in and some before and after-ish shots of the room too. Though I will share more pics when the room is all finished!


A friend asked me to make this one - so I got out the Art Parts, chipboard letters and wooden embellishments, am pleased with how it went considering I didn't quite know how to put it all together. I just played around and stuck with glue when I felt it worked!

A quick and simple card using my Teresa Collin's paper and embellishments, with added buttons and candi.

I've made more cards but the photos were rubbish so I won't share those!

Now for the before shots - 

Bare floor of the landing.

Looking into my boy's room from door, old paint colours.

And looking across his room.

Took these pics after most of furniture removed and obviously after carpet took up. You can see the holes in the wall where the old fitting came out of the plaster!

Now for the lovely new walls, all painted and new curtain pole fitted with curtains!

Much better - softer neutral tones.

Makes his room seem a lot bigger.

I know the pole is meant to fit the window but this was the smallest size they did of the pole we wanted, BUT it does mean Keagan now has somewhere to hang his special football scarf which I bought him while in Paris, it can now be hung up as a feature - well it will be when everything gets unpacked and put back after the carpet has been fitted!

New light shade, you wait till you see the matching floor lamp, very posh, I can't wait to show you his new blind and canvases too, his room is going to look amazing, and all chosen by the boy himself and paid for by moi!

Take care Zo xx

If you're a bad blogger...what does that make me?!?! LOL. I think we can let you off though, you seem to have been very busy organizing!! ;)

The card and the plaque are both just...gorgeous!!
Hope you are both well and looking forward to the weekend. Take care my lovely friend...

Zoe don't worry about the commenting lark we all have to take a break occasionally to get on with life. The bedroom looks great I bet your Son loves it. I have just painted my bathroom white and bought teal colour towels & bathmats they stand out so beautiful don't they. Take care of yourself and DON'T WORRY!
Hugs Teresa xx

Morning sweetie, it is very hard work doing one room as you seem to fill all the other rooms up with the stuff you have taken out, so you end up doing more than one room, I am shattered, yours looks really cool though x

Ha ha, your posting is nowhere near as bad as my visiting. I do try to remember to swing by and check your blog regularly but just lately I have been a bad girl. I just cannot get back into things after my holiday.

There is always so much to see and read on your blog and I will try to do better, sorry.
