Craft fair today

Good morning all.The wall dilemma has been solved.Luckily the artex was under 12 years old so no asbestos.It was extremely crumbly, the landlord came straight round when i phoned him and we really saturated the artex with wet soapy water and then it just fell off with a scraper. i have then used a pva solution over it to be on the safe side..My carpet is up now too and we`ve rolled it up and taken it outside ready for the tip.I have my craft fair today 10am till 2pm where i will also be trying to sell some of unwanted stamps, glitter glues etc.
Wish me luck.Apologies if i`ve not been around to visit you but its all go here.The quicker i get done, the quicker i get around to visiting you all again.
When i get home i have my dt cards to do and then i`m going to hopefully get the ceiling and gloss work done, ready for the paper to go up then :D
Missing you all loads already.
Hugs Coops.xxx

Hi Nic,

I am so sorry I've not left any comments recently, I am so far behind I need to give up sleeping I think!

Sounds like you are having so much fun eh? I absolutely hate decorating!! I love it when it's all completed but I just hate all the mess that happens in the process, and nothing ever seems to go smoothly in our house!
We have artex on the ceilings (they were like that when the house was built) so everytime we decorate a room the artex is covered up. But ours is over 20 years old and we are told it contains asbestos, so it's been a case of boarding on top of the artex and then getting in a plasterer to cover over the boards, before we can decorate again.
What a palaver!!

Hope you had a good day at the craft fair!

Big hugs
Elaine xx
