Welcome to the hovel
Things in moving-land are going a bit crazy. We’re having all of our stuff shipped via a container system so it’s all got to 2 weeks before we do. (It is actually much easier for us health-wise since we only have one able-bodied-ish person to do the actual lifting and carrying and this way we’re not rushing to load or unload a truck in a single day.) My half of the studio I have shared with my mom off and on since 2009 is slowly getting packed away. In some ways it’s embarrassing, as I am faced with just how much stuff I have managed to accumulate. In other ways it’s exciting as I am remembering cool things I own but haven’t seen in a while.
(This move is also a bit nerve-wracking as we don’t have a house yet. We have several we’re trying to choose between but it will probably be sight-unseen just due to the tight schedule and the fact that my husband starts his new job on Monday so we only have enough time to get things packed and not time to go halfway across the country to house hunt. Luckily we have a fantastic realtor working with us who knows the rental market very well, and we trust her judgment!)
Meanwhile this blog is still neglected. A big shoutout to anyone who has wandered here because of my post on Craft Test Dummies! I hope you will pardon my dust, I promise to be back starting next week. (Without my studio and stash I forsee a lot of boredom coming on!)
If you don’t know much about me, you can wander around this site a bit but probably a much easier way to find out is to listen to episode #92 of the Craftypod, featuring yours truly. I talk about how crafting keeps me going and also why I spend so much more time on Twitter than I do blogging. (In case you didn’t know, you don’t need an ipod to listen to a podcast. You can listen right there on that website by clicking the little grey button with a triangle that looks just like the “Play” button on your CD or DVD player).
Whether you are an old friend or new, I hope to hear from you!
