to unpack or not?

Hello,
here I am in a new house, full of boxes filled with all our belongings.
the move went really well but once we arrived in the new house we found out
that there are some troubles with pipes and a leaking boiler
(the heating in this house is run by -kerosene- oil!)
So "rien a faire" until the plumber and the boiler technician 
come to see if it's actually safe to stay here
or if we have to move to another place.
And guess what? It's ok, I prefer to do something I like rather than to get stressed 
and so I started to make some clouds!
The shop is open but the clouds will be on sale next week.
Here there's a storm right now, this weather is so unpredictable as life is...isn't it?

I'm the winner of the styling straw competition
Thanks Lynne of Tea for Joy

Bravo pour le prix mais aussi pour ton aplomb et ton sens de l'humour ! ;)
J'espère que tu sauras très bientôt quoi faire de ces cartons,
Bises, Séverine.

When in doubt, sew. That is my motto!

Nothing to make? Take-out picnics on the floor, like camping indoors ;^)

I admire your diligence keeping up with your art and making clouds while packing and unpacking and everything else ... a lesson for me!

Time to follow your links... Good luck, and hope all the pipes and "oil" starts working soon! xo

"il tempo e le persone, le prendi come vengono" always tells me my elderly neighbor. ... e pure i traslochi:)!
