Welcome to Jackie's Craftroom

Welcome to my blog. A place for me to share my love of cardmaking, scrapbooking and bug covers with all my friends. Take a look around and see what I have been creating. I am a member of the Cricut MB, it is almost an addiction ;)
I love designing and making cards, dabble in scrapbooking and make the original reversible covers for all types of crafting gadgets.

My Happy Place = My Craft Room :)

6 months since the floods, how time flies when........

you are living in your garage. Yep we are still living in "CLUB GARAGE" and it is getting to me, maybe it's just that time of the month, who knows.
The only saving grace I have is that I am able to get into my craft room and set it up as that room is finished with as far as the work being done to the house.
It is winter here and although we living in the tropics it is a very cold winter for here and my body is feeling every degree of the cold.
We were told when we moved into the garage on April 13Th that we would be back in the house in 8 -12 weeks. Then two weeks ago we were told we would be in the house in two weeks. We have only seen one worker in the last two weeks and it is really depressing me to come back home after work or going to the shops. I see that no work has been done to the house and all we want is to be back in there. It's like having a pot of gold sitting there just out of reach and not being able to get a hold of it.
With a bit of luck we will be back in the house by September, we were told that we would 100% be in by September, NO WORRIES, but I have my doubts.
Trying to look on the bright side is hard sometimes, especially when it is so darn cold. Jackie :)
