...and she said pack your stuff.

Yep, that's what she keeps saying. "Pack your jive, we are moving soon." I am so thankful that we will be moving into our new home by October [weather withholding]. I will finally have a craft room instead of a craft corner. She says all my stuff will not fit in the craft room, but I don't understand her logic.  I'm going from a a room. Oh goody goody gum have no clue what's gonna fit. I even purchased a used 7 drawer dresser from the good will for about $40. I'm deciding what color I want my craft room to be. I'm thinking of painting most pieces washed white and a pop of color on some. I will post pictures of the redone furniture soon.

Sadly though with preparing to move, I have to start packing up stuff so we're not waiting to the last minute. I don't like waiting til the last minute. I know how I want my things packed too. We will be enlisting the help of family and friends for the move. I'm looking forward to buying new storage for my craft room. I've seen a few pieces at ikea and as much as I enjoy vintage furniture, I would not like it in my craft room to work on. Maybe for a display area or just her work desk.

I've signed up for one swap over at YPP and once that's done next week, the only thing I think I'll leave out is my art journal and pour my markers/pencils/crayons into plastic bags to use.

Not creating for that long....I'd be sick.

Happy crafting.
