The Last Four Months

It's been SO long since I've posted and created...the past four months have been crazy to say the least and the whirl wind continues...here is a quick synoptic of the last few months ~

May 2014 ~ We listed our much beloved home of 22 years and within 36 hours it was sold to a wonderful young family. We know they will love living there and raising their beautiful 3 girls as much as we have loved doing life and raising our children in the country!

June 2014 ~ Packed and Purged our 3600 sq. foot home, what a daunting task, I never realized how much of a hoarder I was, very organized and tidy, but still a hoarder!!! Yikes!!!

July 2014 ~ Packed more as we were coming closer to our exit date, sold most of our furniture...and now the house was really getting empty and beginning to echo ~ what an emotional time this was for me ~ I knew it was time to usher in a new season for Dean & I, but we loved doing life with our family & friends at 414 Leah! We hosted SO many pool parties and always shared what the Lord had blessed us with...July 31, 2014...good-bye home....hello Condo living!!!

Wow...and now, here we are...LOVING our new life style...we call it 'Lock & Leave~Unlock & Live'...and love the new found freedom that we have ~ but...I no longer have a studio, and so now, I need to figure this out and see if I can make it happen in our small quarters.
In two weeks, I will host my first open house and I am SO excited for my friends to come over and stamp with me once again!!!
I made my first card here in the condo yesterday as I need a birthday card and here is what I came up with...and I had so much fun creating!!! This was also a great time of therapy for me...my father has been in the hospital for 8 weeks now (in the midst of our crazy move) and really isn't doing very well and I'm really having a hard time with it all, so creating a new card, or knitting up another hat is therapy for me ~ I followed this fabulous sketch that I found at retro sketch...you have until Friday to play along, why not join in the fun!!!



If you live in Winnipeg or the vicinity and would like to host a party I would love to come and stamp with you and your friends!! Or, come join in and create with me at one of my many clubs or classes! Drop me a line for further info! I'd love to meet you! Enjoy your day!
