Before: Hi all, hope you all had a wonderful week. Well it's been very wet here and my fellow countrymen in Queensland are copping the rain and floods. A terrible tragedy. So many people dead and missing. Please pray for them.
So whilst I was listening to the latest updates of the floods I got myself busy. This is on the opposite side of where I have my super long desk. It's a pull out sleeper couch, my craftstuff has a habit of 'expanding' if you know what I mean. In the corner near the window you can see some of my synthetic grass mats I sell on ebay.Underneath in the red box is some of my stained glass supplies. Hubby has made me a 'corner' in the shed now for my stained glass stuff..Little does he know once I settle into the 'shed' he can forget about me be happy with just a corner.........When it;s up and running I will take some pics for you to see. That will be soooo fun......

After: Well here is the after shot. A little more tidier and you can even see the couch - OMG!  Looks rather nice, huh?

Before: My son did a room tidy ( yes, miracles do happen, this is proof!) and I ended up with one of his chuck outs, which is a broken computer desk. Wasn't quiet sure at first what to do with it but then the light went on upstairs if you know what I mean. Not that I really needed another desk, but seeing this was only a small one, I could leave my cricut out and didn't always have to pack it away, just have to roll over with my chair from the other side. Oh yeah, some of us have a hard life  .....LOL.

After: Oh look, you can see the cricut machine again.Just underneath there is a pull out bit where the keyboard is ment to go, so I store all the cricut mats there. So works well for me. My intention is to use it more, now that its out. That's the theory anyway.I must say I do love it but don't use it as much  as I should. It's only the simple one, the one that takes 6 inch wide mats. I am very blessed to have it.
Thanks for sticky beeking everyone! Please remember to pray for the flood victims. Blessings Hilde

  9. My room gest very messy too when I create!

  10. I couldn't believe those pictures of the floods I saw yesterday, such power, and it came so quickly too, no time to react. Hoping for better news in the next few days but really fearing the worst. Love your "makeover" though, that was quite some clean up!

  11. I really love your before and after shots - must say the tidy way is my way - will be praying for all the people effected by the floods ~ Nicky 45

  12. I am like you when I am in the mood to create my equipment seems to take on a life of its own... and any available space. Love the before and afters.

  13. wow amazing before and afters, but you do know you will never find anything again?

  14. wow what a differnec, love the cushions on the couch, have been listening to the news just hope all those missing are found safe and well.

  15. Watching some of the footage on the floods last night, it must be terrifying. Water in the wrong place can do so much damage, and it carries on for such a long time. There are people from the floods in the UK over the last couple of years who are still not back in their own homes.

  16. can you come and tidy mine up now please :)
    nice to meet you

  17. Wow! You really did a fantastic clean up job! Great Before and After pictures!
