Testing....1, 2, 3!

Hi there. Just wanted to pop in and see if this dusty blog still worked :)


We are getting all settled in our new Pittsburgh home. It has been a busy two months and we are still busily trying to get some home improvements done and walls painted WHILE still taking lots of breaks to enjoy the summer.


There is one thing I am certain of----I definitely miss my creative time. I am counting the days when I have everything else done on my "must-do" list and then I can get to work setting up my office. Right now it is just a room with a desk and about 50 boxes. I keep the door shut so I am not tempted to run in there before I get everything else settled.


I just wanted to check in and let you all know we are doing well and enjoying summer. I hope you are all having a great summer. I miss my crafty friends but I will be back soon! I have so many fun ideas floating around in my head..........but, until then....thanks for stopping by and for all the sweet comments and emails. Hugs!

Glad to hear you're getting settled in. I'd have a really hard time not going into my craft room - you must have incredible will-power. Enjoy the rest of the summer and looking forward to seeing your latest creations.

I agree it's good to get everything else settled before you do your studio - because when that is in order...you won't want to leave it...LOL! Have fun!!!

Great to hear from you - glad all is well in your new home. Wishing you a speed through your 'must do' list. Take care and have a great summer.

Nicole said...

So glad to hear it, Cammie! I saw a card by you in one of the pubs lately (I think it was Cardmaker), and wondered if it was leftover from a previous submission or if maybe you were making your way back. Look forward to seeing your creations again.

Patti J said...

Hooray! Welcome back darlin'!!!!!

Toni K said...

So glad you're getting closer to getting crafty. I couldn't imagine moving and all that is involved with it.

Nice to know you are getting settled in. Moving is always such a chore, and getting settled in again can take awhile. Good to know you are taking some time to enjoy the summer along the way, although we could use a little less of the heat here in the U.P. of Michigan. When it gets this hot I just want to go down in my basement where it's much cooler and play with my papers and stuff:) Gos's blessings to you and your family and hope to see you online again soon.

Mary Friederichsen said...

We will be waiting for you when you get back! :)
Enjoy the summer and your family!

Blessings and Hugs,

Mary
