Ikea breaks my heart

A little over the top for a post title, admittedly.

BUT, don't you hate it when you go to Ikea (with 2 small children, and a fair distance away) for a specific item and it is out of stock? We did, however, make up for it with a nice big yellow bag full of impulse purchases, which relieved some of the pain. 

Anyways, onto more crafty things... above is a tiny painting that I did on holidays. I wanted to take my sewing machine, but thought better of it at the last moment, and took my painting stuff instead. 

I'm looking forward to the rest of this week. Chris is off work and I have a lot of projects I have been itching to do for a while. Like sort out all of my crafty stuff that I have been accumulating more rapidly than finding places to put it. Like cleaning out the bathrooms... the bedrooms. A belated spring clean. Overall, just getting things organised for the new year.

My house is in need of a New Year cleaning/organizing as well. Good luck with yours!

That is such a cute painting.

I ADORE that painting!!

Don't your Ikeas have the online guide to what's in stock? That has saved me many a looong drive. Which I need to make again soon...
