On The Way Out

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

    Very excited for you...new homes are wonderful. Love your present scrap room cannot wait to see your new one. Is there one their and ready, or have to create one?? Mine is constantly a work in progress. Love decorating and finding the right "thing" for this room and that. Good Luck, and cannot wait to see your new home. UGH but allot of work.

    Good luck with the move Ali! I have to say your moving room looks more organised than my current 'craft room'! Although I have decided I should stop hiding behind disorganisation and start doing again :)

    a fresh start. a new blank canvas for a work space. i love that. somedays i think it would be cool to just take EVERYTHING out of my scrap studio and REDO! purge, rediscover, re-excite myself...of' course thats a lot of work so I dont do it! Cam't wait to see what you do with your new space :-)

    Good luck on your move. I actually love moving. It's a great opportunity to purge and reorganize. I am on house number 3 in 10 years. My husband says we are staying, but I just don't think I've found the right place yet.

    I've moved quite a few times in the last 3 years and each time I find it both exciting and a bit taxing.
    Best wishes on a smooth transition!

    We are packing to move too, so I hear you on all of the above.
    I hope you have a smooth transition, lots of light in your new home, and plenty of packing tape!

    Good luck on your move! I think I still have a few unpacked boxes from our move 6 years ago. No SBing supplies though. :) Love the mini locker set-up.

    Hi Ali,
    Thanks for keeping us updated on the move. I also love the lockers. Good luck on moving in and hope it all goes well. Can't wait to see pictures of the new house and new craft room for you??? What fun.

    Hope your move is going well! I just finished moving from a 3 bed/2 bath apt. to a 2 bed/1 bath apt. I thought we would never finish. Now I have to unpack and find space for all the stuff I didn't get rid of. Purging scrapbook stuff is #1 on the list of things that need to be purged. Thankfully, my LSS is having a garage sale next month so that is great motivation. That, and the fact that I am already tired of all the boxes piled everywhere! :o)

    Good luck with the move! It's so exciting! I hate packing, but I love organizing and finding new homes for my favorite things.
    I love that going through your craft room (generally thought to be a chore) can invite so much inspiration! Can't wait to see the projects which will come out of that inspiration!

    I would love the Discovery kit. I am at a point in my life where many things are changing and I think that I could use the kit to represent that really well.

    Moving sucks. Not the getting a new space part, but the putting everything in boxes and physically moving it. If I never move again, I'll be happy. :) Good luck with all that!!!!

    Moving is hard work - but very cathartic and cleansing. I know - we've moved houses 4 times in 13 years. Good luck with it all and can't wait to see what new projects are birthed in your new nesting place. Thanks for the giveaways - always fun! - pennyscraps
