what i'm up to

about 5'7"....

sorry. old family joke.

for those of you who might wonder what's going on with me, here you go. 

~ yesterday we moved boxes from the rental house into the new house. :) today we're all sore from going up and down stairs. (ok, so *i* didn't do any lifting because i need to watch how much i do, but the kids and husband did a lot.) thank goodness, we have an open basement, so we were able to drive the cars into the backyard and load things in through the door instead of going up and down *those* stairs.

~ no photography lately, but i did try my hand at making paper a few days ago. when i have a chance, i'll post the results. i used dried petals from the fuscia on the back porch, and the sunflower that i posted pics of earlier. let's just say, making paper is just as fun as i'd imagined. :)

~ today we take a trip to Bozeman for things we can't find in Butte. i'm not looking forward to riding in the car for an hour, especially after yesterday's moving, but it has to be done. at least it won't have anything to do with moving -- well, except for the fencing we have to buy to keep the dogs in, and the dog door to let them in the house, and maybe a few things at Michael's for decorating.

~ the official move takes place this Friday. yikes. that's only 5 days from now. i'll start the rest of the packing tomorrow.

~ i've been discovering more art journal blogs. you can see some of them in my blog viewing list.

Glad you're finally moving into the new house! Bet you're ready to settle.
