Bye Bye April, Here Comes May

Ahhh! Nothing beats a good crop, complete with friends, good food, laughter, and of course a few completed pages! Last weekend, Alicia (standing next to me) and Sharon ( sitting) joined me at the latest Hilltop Crop in Sarasota. I spent a lot of time talking and saying my good byes, as it is more than likely that this will be my last crop before the move. I do plan on doing my best to see my friends whenever I am down in Florida and that should be very soon. I intend to plan some of my trips to coincide with Hilltop crops and other scrapbooking events in Fl. But first, I need to get Hubby situated in our temporary acommodations and make sure that everything is on track with the new house.

Speaking of the house, here is a picture I took today, shortly after arriving.

Right now I can't figure out if I want time to speed up, or slow down. Usually I would say slow down, but right now I can't wait for the first night that hubby and I get to sleep in our new house. I've noticed a couple of funnies, one is the finish on the bay window. It definitely was not supposed to be covered in the same siding as the second floor area just above it and it looks a little weird to me.

Next is a picture of the almost completed craft room. I am really looking forward to setting things up and inviting friends over to crop. And yes, I'm talking to you my wonderful scrapbook buddies! As you can see there is a door for you guys to come in without having to roll your things through the house and carry them down the stairs and the plans even call for a cement walkway to take you from the front of the house to this back door so that you can roll your totes right in! Of course hubby also gets to roll his boxes up and down to the unfinished storage area!

I have brought a lot of scrapping stuff with me and hope to go both to the scrapbook store in Florence to Archivers to sit and crop and make new friends. With a minimum of luck, the next few weeks will be a nice relaxing interval for me before the final move.

Wow... wish they had this house in VA :) The pop out window doesn't look bad in the pic. I didn't notice it looking weird at all. I'm excited for those OH SBers to meet you.

It looks like you had a lot of fun! Love the pictures of the house. I do see what you mean by the bay window. Love the big spacious craft area!!!

Alicia said...

Yaaaaaaaaaaaay! A craft room in your house! That's by far the coolest thing I have ever heard of in my life. =) The picture of the house is GORGEOUS!!!! Bay window and all. I can't wait to go see it!

That was a good crop, with good friends and good times. And really good brownies. :p

Love it that your new scrapping buddies can just roll their way right into the craft room!

I am always late getting back to you. Glad to know you made it north safely. I had a wonderful time as always scraping with my friends and will miss you terribly. The house is coming along very fast and I hope you get to move in soon. Keep in touch and enjoy
