If you are here from Scrappy-arts-n-thoughts, you are in the right place!!

What is UP!  I am so excited to be writing my first post for my new blog!! Totally awesome.  My blog designer, and new friend,       Karen  Valentine, is amazing!!  Click on her name to see her custom blog design blog.  Believe me, you have to see what  she can do.  But, she also has a personal blog, My Desert Cottage, which you can visit on my left sidebar blog roll.  Her work, and her home are a delight.  So check it out!!  This blog has so many new features for me to use and try and load and there is much to be done on my part.  Karen set it all  up the way I wanted it, and I have to carve out little bits of time each day to fill it in.  The about me is done (for now), and the gallery has like 3 things only, but I'm workin' on it!!  AND, you can grab my new badge on the left of the blog, just copy and paste the code!  How rad is that?????

SO, I am so backward, I don't know where to start!!  We realized late last year that we needed more space, and went on a house hunt.  Not the best time of year, but we thought we were just looking.  We put our house on the market, and began looking for a new one.  Assumed that it would take forever to  sell our house, but no!  Sold in like a week!  So now what the hell am I supposed to do?  Now, in the dead of winter, in the middle of snow, I'm looking for somewhere to live.  Long story short, between packing, changing the kids schools, all the utilities and mail, it has been ridiculous.  Unbelievable.  But, we are here now, in our new house and it is great, except I am living in a madhouse of boxes!  Holy crow, it will take me 10 years to unpack.  But, for now, I will make do!  I think the unpacking is the fun part!!

So, stay tuned!  I'll be back !!
