I'm back! We moved & I was Featured in Studios Magazine

Hi friends! I packed, moved, unpacked, and while this was all happening my article in the Fall 2012 Studios Magazine hit the news stands!!  

Hooray... I am so proud and happy my interview about my craft closet was published. How cool that a year ago I decided to start a little blog and now I wrote an article for an international magazine...
I'm so excited and I thank each and everyone of you for reading, commenting, and encouraging me along this journey! If you are interested this magazine can be found at Barnes & Noble as well as the digital version here. It's full of beautiful photos of creative work spaces. I'm so honored they asked me and my tiny closet to be in it.... And by the way even though I will no longer have a craft closet, I am busy putting together a new space!

We were sad to leave my home town of Phoenix, but I have to say we are settling in great in Fresno! The weather is not as hot and it's definitely more of a small town feel here. The neighbors have all come over to introduce themselves and are really sweet. (That has never happened before.)

We are loving our new space to call home. It has beautiful hardwood floors and something we haven't experienced much of...Grass in the front and back yard!! My kids are very happy!
It also has a great upstairs loft we just made into a play room. I spent 8 hours on Sat unpacking and organizing each and every toy, game, and book we own...Ugh...That was a big job and those toys with a zillion pieces are the worst! But it looks great and stay tuned for a tour of that room.
We arrived just in time for my son to start first grade!
He loves his new school and teacher! I'm so relieved :)
I've been crazy busy unpacking and organizing. I've also realized we have way too much stuff!! Between all the kid stuff and my love of holiday decor we still can't park in the garage :)  I hope we can soon though.
Of course the one thing that was damaged in the move was the one thing I noted to the movers that was fragile...my daughter's tea cup chandelier got all bent. I'm wondering if a lighting specialist can fix it?

This house has a cool  tiny closet under the stairs that I am turning into a reading nook/play house for the kids. They have already claimed it as theirs :)

Well back to cleaning and organizing.....Here we are literally swimming in packing paper!

Have a great week!
