First, where do I put everything? We were so fortunate and blessed to find a lovely home, which is larger than our previous one. There are some wonderful features...but built in storage is not one of them! I have NO linen closet upstairs where the bedrooms are. Improvising is becoming my past-time.

Notice the carefully cropped photos. What you can't see are all the boxes still to be unpacked, although you can see a hint of the chaos in the second photo. :)
My goal this week is to get my sewing/crafty stuff unpacked, and myself back in the creating business. I have so many ideas bouncing around in my head, Halloween and Christmas are coming...
Yikes. One step at a time.
Thanks to all of you for checking up on me during our move, and for being patient as I got caught up on email and comments.
I'll also have a new Halloween craft to share with a free printable template coming later this week.
Hugs to all of you. Thanks to all of you who've stuck around since I started this little happy spot. Thanks to all the new readers who join in the fun. I appreciate all of your support.
