Pearls and Lace #120 Craft Room Progress

Today's post for Pearls and Lace Thursday is going to be a jumble of different things.
First, a few shots of my new craft room to catch you up on the progress.
All of the large pieces have been moved in and put in their proper places. It's the small stuff now that I'm trying to work on. But it takes time to figure it all out!




Second, my friend Melanie over at French Blue and Peach Pink and I are having a swap, and we've been working on it for over a month now.  With the holidays, we decided to wait until now to get it in the mail, thus, more time to add to the box.  That's one project I've been working on this last month.

Now Melanie is a sweet lady, hard working, and is working on her Florist license.  She has put together some of the most lovely creations I've ever seen.  Oh if only I could smell them!
But she has a little mean streak!!  I mean, who would be so mean as to post pictures on her blog of only a SNEAK PEAK of what's coming to me???  Seriously...I'm just dying over here!  And now I have to wait, because today, the packages go in the mail.  If you hear a huge scream of excitement one day when you're just sitting there, you'll know it was me getting my lovely package of goodies from Melanie.

So Melanie....this pic is for you!!!
Nanny nanny booboo!!
One thing though.  Melanie was shopping and found something SO ADORABLE that she took a picture of it and has it on her blog this week.  You can see the post here.

And third and finally, it's time for Pearls and Lace Thursday!  So sorry about not having some lovely pictures to share with you today.  I will be able to spend lots more time to working on a lovely vignette for you for next week.  I have decided to focus on PEARLS next week.....and I hope it will make up for this week.
Feel free to add your URL code to the link below and join us.  Share your pretties with us, and don't forget to visit some of the participants! 
Hope you all have a blessed week!
Doni

You won't know yourself when it's all finished. OOh so exciting too,to get a mystery parcel in the post. I wonder what it is. x

I am posting to your Linky Party to make you suffer just a little bit more ! hehehhe
Your parcel is in the mail and I have a tracking number to give you so you can see where it is. I wasn't taking any chances after my last parcels took 6 weeks to arrive. I will email you the details xo
