I know, we’re almost a week into the new year already but I, for one, am still celebrating the fact that we’ve flipped the calendar from 2012 to 2013! Hooray!
2012 was a bit of a crazy ride. Definitely a life-changing year. You can probably tell from my lack of posts that the last few months have been busy. I’m not going to go back and re-cap the year…but the one bit of exciting news from the past few months is that I have just moved into a new house! I’ve been in it now for about 5 weeks and I can finally say that I’m pretty much settled. I still have a couple of rooms to paint and lots of decorating left to do but the boxes have all been emptied and I can actually find the things that I need for day-to-day living (a bigger deal than you’d think!). It’s been about 14 years since I’ve moved into a new house…the longest we had ever lived in one place…but this time is a totally fresh start. This is the first time that I haven’t had to decorate around other people. This time it’s all about the things I want to surround me. And, to be honest…I’m not sure how I ever decorated a house before Pinterest! I’ve always been pretty good at visualizing how things are going to look but wow…with Pinterest it is so much more fun! Don’t you agree?
I thought my scrapbook studio was going to be the first room to get a re-do…but actually I’ve done nothing to it…yet. It is, however, the next room on my list. Needless to say I haven’t been doing much scrapbooking either…but I’m starting to get back into it. Today I thought I’d take a break from painting doors and climbing ladders and put together a couple of books. I’ve just listed them in my etsy shop but of course I wanted to share them with you too…
It felt good to crank out a few new books. I can’t wait till my new studio is done and organized so all my supplies are easily accessible again!
Have a great week!
