What have I concluded?

Don't expect to stamp ANYTHING if you are preparing for a move. For the last month I have sorted, organized, purged, yard saled, cleaned, downsized 4 years of stuff! How do we do that??? You know collect stuff!? On top of that we have been traveling back and forth to the new city we are moving to in addition to taking a trip for my annual homeschool convention. Speaking of homeschooling, I will be officially homeschooling my son after we move :)

I appologize for being absent so long. This happens to be the LONGEST time in the past 3 years of blogging that I have not been able to stamp and the be honest it has also been the hardest time! I have been longing to find some time to stamp. Drooling over new stamps and eagerly awaiting new posts from some of my fav bloggers out there.

We are one week away from pack day. Although we have people coming to back our belongings, I have had to go through my stamp room and pack a lot of the smaller things (in fact I am still in the process of doing so--it has taken me a week already). The moving company was a little intimidated by my "collection" and I knew that if I left the packing to them they would wrap even the smallest item in so much packing paper that I would likely loose it.

We will be moving into our new home on May 16th and will have Internet by May 20th. I imagine I will be up and running again by the beggining of June (with a Jiffy girls post in between) Yes...that is still a long time away but I will have lots of fun things in store for you! I'll even post some pics of my new set up--if you thought I was organized before...wait for it.

Again, that you for your patience. I can hardly wait to "be back".

Hang in there, it will all fall in place. I love reading your blog and can relate to the chaos. I moved to a new home almost 3 years ago and still have boxes waiting to be unpacked. Life can sometimes take over, but your fans will gladly wait while you get settled. Happy moving!

Hugs Yvon.

I know how busy you are!! We are military (US) & move every 3 years. I wish I knew how we collected so much STUFF in such a short amount of time!! Good luck with the move and your homeschooling endeavor (we homeschool too)!! Praying for a smooth transition!

Best wishes for your move Alli! I hope you enjoy every minute of your new home. Can't wait to see what you create after unpacking with all that pent-up creativity! lol just had to add ... I went to type in the word verification box. No I'm not a robot although some days it feels like it. the word...sanity. Hang on tight to it! :)

Take your time - we miss you like crazy but completely understand. It took me 2 full weeks to get my studio packed and we've been in our new home almost 2 years and I've still not got the studio completely unpacked. *sheesh* {the 1st year I didn't even have a studio here and now that i do have one it's way small. Oh well.} What I'm really trying to say is no worries we'll all wait for you because we love you and blessings to you as you pack and then unpack. It's a lot of work and stress - go easy on yourself - you'll get there!!

Hey Alli, just dropped by to see how you're doing! Good to see an update and know that things are moving along. The stamping you've managed to squeeze in recently looks fab but you certainly have a lot more on your plate - hope it all goes smoothly now and you're safely settled before you know it!

Kimberly Crawford said...

Ohh! Its SO good to hear from you! I have been thinking about you and your move, wondering how everything was coming along!! I am glad to hear that it is going well! When we moved, I packed a special, just in case I HAVE to stamp box! :) It never left our truck! :) Hope everything continues to go well and I cannot wait to see all the creativity that will be pouring out of you this summer!! ((((HUGS)))

Hi Alli,

Just checking in on you to see how the move is going. Like Carole said--hang in there! Can't wait to see pix of the new pad, esp the stamping pad!

Hugs,
Amy
