Renovations, LO's, Grab Bag and freebies!!

We have been in our present house for over 8 years, and for 8 solid years we have been renovating. At the moment we are doing a huge job, renovating our pool and outside entertainment area, and I thought it would be fun to show you some photos as it progresses. These are the first lot I took yesterday as the pool was emptied and the area prepared for paving. The building you see with the thatch roof is called a lapa here, that we have just completed the structure but lots of finishing touches still to be done , it has a little bar, braai (barbecue) and a jacuzzi. Our house surrounds the pool, this is as you walk out of the house, to the right is out indoor entertainment area and bar, and my son's room and bathroom and the spare room, to the front is the kitchen and to the left is the living area and the rest of the bedrooms and bathrooms. That wrought iron gate is being removed and sliding shutters are being put up insteadI had the pleasure of swapping kits with Danielle Corbitt, this is her new kit Snow AngelAnd the LO I did with it- which got LOTD at Digital Candy -YAY!!I have some word art in my shop, part of a collab Grab Bag Digital Candy did for DSD that has now been revealed. I did this with my teenage daughter in mind!
Ok, onto some more Whimsical Winter LO's!It is still 45% off until Friday, I extended the sale for a few more days!
