Hello from my NEW craft space!

You may or may not have noticed, but my blog has been pretty quiet the last several months. To give you the short version of what life has been like we sold our house on December 20th, because moving 5 days before Christmas is a FANTASTIC idea. Hopefully you caught my sarcasm there. Unfortunately we hadn't found a new place so we ended up renting a house from some friends that had recently moved and just taken their house off the market to wait for spring to roll around. We lucked out there! We eventually got settled in there, my inlaws moved up from California and in with us and as soon as we got nice and cozy, all the while looking for a new house, our friends got an offer on their house completely out of the blue. Fortunately, the day we were supposed to move out and in to an apartment, we had an accepted offer on a house. We ended up moving in with friends for the two week overlap between houses and FINALLY we were able to move one more time in to a house we hopefully will not be moving out of for many many years. It was a crazy few months, constantly packing and unpacking all the while trying to keep up on other obligations. But it's done. Thank God! And I quite love our new house and all the plans we have for it as well!

So...on to the point of this post. I have a new craft space! You may have seen my previous room. If not, then I'll remind you! I had taken advantage of an alcove and utilized as much wall space as possible.

This time around I wanted something that would be easy to move around as my craft space is not in it's permanent location in the house. So now when I am ready to move it to another room I can do so rather easily and not leave 50 holes in the wall!

While my desktop is not as long as what I had before, I'm finding my space to be extremely functional and everything is still within easy reach. I think one of my favorite things may be my Tonic Guillotine hanging up on the side of one of my bookcases thanks to 3M picture hanging strips.

I do plan on painting the walls, but it's low on my to do list right now. In the meantime I am enjoying the natural light and finding time to create!
