Wishcrafting: Progress?

Once again with her astounding Goddess powers Jamie Ridler nails it.  This week at Jamie Ridler studios she asks: What do you wish to make progress on.

This has been something that I have been dwelling on just the last few days.  Both in regard to the Allotment and the House renovations.  I have decided that what I need to do is find the original photos and get them laminated, put them somewhere prominent & remind myself of the amazing progress we have made so far!  It is so easy in the day to day to forget where you started.  I get despondent.  Then I remember the sorry state both 'lombint and house were in five years ago.  And realise that we have made fabulous progress!

Yep, the compacted, sodden clay paddock that our Plot started out as.

Doin' the Dance of Seira Madre for the New Shed
Its important to celebrate the progress as its made!

Its hard to believe that this was a voluntary undertaking and not a publicity shot for an appeal for victims of some hideous disaster.  Check out my yellow kitchen.  Aka a bucket & tap.

And now...


Livin the Dream baby.  Well, almost, but check out those wooden floors.  Mmmmm
 So. In fact, I have made progress.  Well, We have made progress.  It would be somewhat misrepresentative of me to imply it was all my own work!  This house is what I wish to make some more progress in the next few weeks, to move the kids beds around, my creative space is moving downstairs to make way for big girl beds, and getting a proper place for everything.
I am so glad that I looked out these pictures for this post.  Thankyou Jamie it was just what I needed.  You rock!

Speaking of progress, I am loving this progression animation of an A'levels students final exam piece.  I'd love to have a go at doing something like this.

  9. Crikey, I know exactly how you feel! With the bathroom finished I just keep wandering in and sighing deeply before shutting my eyes and feeling my way through a building site of a hallway! x
