Take the long way home

I suppose it's been long enough, and I should start blog again. I only have a handful of boxes left in the garage, so I'm pretty much put together again. I lost 10 lbs from moving all my crap, and I've purged and purged and now my whole house is organized. And it's only January. I figure all that's left to do is blog and craft. :)
I got a new desk last week at IKEA because the old one was so warped dh and I were afraid to put the computer and printer back on it. I love the new desk, it's smaller than the old one but way more functional. At the moment, I have the feb cocoa daisy kit all over the room, or I would take photos. I'll see how the light is this afternoon, maybe I could gather it up and put it in the hallway for the photos. I'm also waiting on a Clip it up, just the base unit. I got a gift certificate to amazon for Christmas and I decided to get one to store my AC thickers, flair and rub-ons. That way I will have more storage room in my closet on the shelves for paper. I've been doing DT work, stuff for the American crafts blog, but nothing I can share until my birthday. The CD reveal is the night of my birthday, I'm excited for that! I just have a feeling the reveal party is even better with cake. :) Isn't everything better with cake? :) :)
Here are some Cocoa Daisy Feb sneak peeks:


Lots and lots of texture in this one, stitching and sewing, foil and glitter, metal and canvas, etc. Well, we are off to find someplace to get the truck's oil changed. It's supposed to snow this weekend, again. I'm kind of over winter, I have enough snow photos to last me a good long while. :)
I have also purged my scrap room, and I have a huge tote full of patterned paper and embellishments to give away. I will be doing that next post. I'm going to stuff 2 flat rate boxes full and mail them out to 2 lucky winners, and it's good stuff- Cosmo Cricket, American crafts, Jenni bowlin, random current papers left over from Cocoa Daisy kits. I like to give the 5 people who read this blog a heads up. :)
Happy Thursday to you! Until tomorrow (and yes, I actually mean tomorrow!) Should have named the blog Ecco Domani (Italian for "There's tomorrow.")

I am so over with snow too...woke up to it here, and I was ready for sunshine. I seem to need lots of reminders that I am not in charge. :)

Enjoy the new house, and now you will make it is home....and a beautiful one I am sure.

I finished purging my scrapping room too, and it feels great. Now there is room for some of the new Basic Grey.

Welcome back! The sneaks are wonderful! Umm, I'll haul your stuff from place to place if it means I will lose 10 pounds! Sounds like the settling in is going well - fantastic. Curious about how little J is adjusting to new digs?
