Starting Over

Well we have arrived in Colorado and the movers finally arrived yesterday. We had originally though they would be here on Wednesday but better late than never. We have been working over 12 hours the past two days to get everything put away. The good news it the house is beginning to really feel like home and we have almost tackled all the boxes. When we have moved in the past the movers have assisted in unpacking, as it is part of the move package. My friend is Moving in Houston
and she told me about a great company she used. If you’re thinking of moving, make sure you use a reliable company! We were told that would be the case this time; however, they did not unbox a single box. So that made it a bit more difficult but we rose to the challenge and have made a huge dent. There are only a few areas that need to be unpacked and one is my craft room. I am hoping to begin tackling it tomorrow when Gavin goes down for his nap. I though I would share my journey with you, showing you the before and after photos. I am also going to show how I organize some of my craft supplies along the way. So lets start with the before pictures.

Before photo 1

Before photo 2As you can probable tell my craft space is smaller and it is not a nice finished room like I had last time. But that is okay as I have a craft space and I have more natural light in this room. I will make the most of it and it gives me the opportunity to reorganize it which is something I love to do. It is taking all of my power not to go down and hit it hard. Unfortunately my body is exhausted and I am moving slow so I will need to take a break and resume tomorrow afternoon. I will post photos of my progress and show how I organize things.

Happy Crafting!


Moving is in Full Swing

I cannot believe we are already to move week.  The movers arrived wasted no time packing everything up.  One of the guys started in my craft room and 29 boxes later I am left with only a shell.  I don’t think he was paying me a complement when he was stating how many boxes there were 🙂 .  All that remains is my printer, phone and furniture 🙁 .    It is so sad to see it in this condition….
My craft room

We will be leaving Spokane this week and head to Colorado.  I am very excited and sad at the same time.  I am really going to miss having my girls come to the house for workshops.   I am still planning to offer workshops for those who are still interested; however, they will be ones you can do at home with detailed directions, cutting guides and photos.  Once I get settled I will start workshops up again for anyone in the Golden/Arvada CO area who is interested.

I will say one good thing that comes from a major move like this, is it gives me the opportunity to reorganize my craft room.  Every time I am able to reorganize my craft room I get inspired and find some hidden treasures 🙂  I will post some photos of my new digs and explain how I organize things.  I will warn you then new room may get more natural light than this one, it is an unfinished basement.  There is a concrete slab and insulation on the walls but I will not get to decorate the walls yet…  Hopefully we will get to finish off the basement in a year or two.

So until we get settled I will not have as many posts as I would like.  I do have some thing I have already completed and will be sharing over the next two weeks. So stay tuned.

Happy Crafting!
