I'm Stylish!!!

2 posts in one day after ZERO posts in 2 months - pretty awesome, don't you think!!! I just realized I got an award for my blog while I have been away! Thank you, Kate! You are wonderful! I need to disclose 8 things about me that you probably don't know! HMMM...that is a tough one but here I go:
1. I DO NOT like moving! This was my 18th move and it doesn't get any easier with experience!!!
2. I love to cook! Baking is one of my passions but spending time in the kitchen is as enjoyable as spending time in my craftroom!
3. I love dogs but I HATE dogs that shed hair all over my house!!! Both of my kids have dogs that shed hair and it drives me crazy when they are here. I spend HOURS cleaning my house when they leave! I guess that is one way to get my house clean!!!
4. I love to spend time in craft stores, fabric stores and cooking stores. I would rather do that than shop for clothing!!! Maybe it has something to do with the fact that my body isn't as easy to fit as it used to be!!! My tall and slender days are gone!!!
5. My favorite color is purple. I even had a purple room when I was young - and LOVED it!
6. I am not a computer geek!!! I can do "MY" basic things on the computer and that is it.
7. I grew up in NC and don't really miss it! I never knew how bad the humidity was there until I left. I don't miss it at all!!!
8. My favorite food is PASTA! I could eat it everyday. I like it served most any way possible!!! I love pasta casseroles and pasta salads. Yum, yum!!! I've even made a pasta dessert!!!

The second part of this award is to pass it on to 8 other blogs. I will have to do that another time since this is really taking a lot of time that I don't have right now! But, thanks again to Kate for her thoughfulness!


Can you believe it!!! It's been over 2 months since I last posted. We moved to Colorado and it has taken much longer for me to unpack than I ever dreamed. I must say that my craft room has been the toughest part. I still have several boxes left but considering there were over 50 boxes...that's not too bad. My craft room is in the attic over a 2 car garage. The walls go up to a point so it makes it hard to put furniture against the walls since you lose so much of it by being tall and bumping your head on the ceiling all the time. There are no closets or any storage space so it has been a HUGE challenge for me. My work is cut out for me for a LONG TIME! My hubby built me several cabinets and a HUGE table for the center of the room with lots of storage beneath so that has been a big help. BUT, I just have too much stuff! I'm SLOWLY getting there. I get frustrated with it very quickly so can't work on it more than a few hours at a time.

SO>>>>here is a card I made before we moved. The stamp is a Unity Stamp. I printed our new address for the inside. It was rather quick and easy. I hope to get back into the swing of things soon so stay tuned!
