On The Way Out


Taking things down. Packing things up. Discovering things I forgot about. Getting ideas for new projects.

    Hope the move goes smoothly! Not sure which I dislike more... the packing or unpacking. Both seem kinda chaotic no matter how organized you are. Always nice to be moving to more space though. Hav fun!

    Cool. Thanks for sharing. I know you must be overwhelmed.
    Looking forward to seeing some "On the way In" photos and then some "Finally In!" ones. :)

    Yeah, that's a good question. I'm going to lean toward "unpacking" being slightly better, since you're excited (usually) about the new place.
    I'm one of those really bad movers, though, that takes at least a year before every box is finally unpacked. It's just so overwhelming and I'm not good choosing places for things.

    Congrats Ali, and good luck! I have to admit I'm going to miss seeing shots of your current house - I love it! I'm sure the new place will be fantastic as well :) Keep calm and carry on. . .

    Ali,
    Good luck with the move and organization. We are also in the process of moving (from Boulder, Colorado to Portland, Oregon).
    I am almost done going through all of my scrapbook stuff, too. We are downsizing, though, so I had to reduce my stuff by more than half! I found a good friend to give it to so she can start scrapping. At least I know the items will be put to use.
    My mantra has been to tackle an area for decluttering and decide if those items should go with us each night!

    When we moved from the Seattle area to Vancouver, WA two years ago, it took one of our movers four and a half hours to pack my craft room. He was on our moving team when we got to our new house. I thought he would run screaming when he realized who he was unpacking that day! You should have seen the look on his face. Too funny!

    Good Luck with your move Ali and hopefully all goes 'smooth'. Loved all the pics of your current place and changes that you tweeked here and there..so I cannot wait to see what you come up with at your new 'home'
    I do not envy your next month or month(s). We moved from KY to Alaska and it just always seems to take longer than planned...
    Hope Simon is excited.. I know sometimes it is rough with all the 'change'.

    We moved this summer, as chaotic as it was packing, I really enjoyed going through all of my craft supplies and picking out my faves to keep. It is all in storage at the moment, but we will move into our apartment in a week and a half. I love the idea of settling in a getting organized into a new home, although it always takes longer than I think it will. Here's to not getting stressed out in the process and ending the day with a good beer, a glass of wine, or a gin and tonic.
    Enjoy your new space.

    being a military spouse I've moved a lot. The best thing about moving is being able to go through your stuff, purge and make room for new possibilities.
