Hey guys! Thank you for all the congratulations, well wishes, and for sticking with us while we move! You guys are awesome! Both Matt and I really appreciate it!
On the home front the Time of the Great Packing has begun. And, it began in my studio. My well organized sanctuary now looks like this.
Most of those boxes are filled with books, by the way. Scary, huh? Even worse, there are still more books in need of boxing upstairs. It can't be helped. Matt and I are both bibliophiles. The other half of the studio is still in chaos due to the desk needing to be broken down, some pictures in need of packing, a few electronics to be squirreled away, and the easel wrapped for transporting. But, other than that and a few odds and ends, the studio is ready for travel.
Which means this is my current studio until the move.
The bin holds my pens and pencils, the bag my Copic markers, and various papers are being stored in the trunk. Though now that I think about it, I'll need to rescue an eraser from one of the other supply bins before I can no longer reach them.
Most of this was done today. Yesterday was filled with gathering packing supplies, figuring out a plan of attack, figuring out another plan of attack, purging the little downstairs closet which had much more stuff inside than a closet of that dimension has any right to hold, and prepping the bathroom for a quick paint job - I'll get on that probably Tuesday. Tomorrow I think we're going to box the remaining books upstairs, and then maybe start on the kitchen. Monday I'll tackle the upstairs closet and start washing and packing all the clothing and blanket donations.
Holly, meanwhile, is not fond of all these changes. She can't figure out what us two crazy humans are doing to her house. Though a new Mr. Hedgehog toy seems to have helped a bit.
She loves her Mr. Hedgehog toys. Which reminds me, I need to repair Big Mr. Hedgehog before we pack the sewing supplies. Course, I need to find the sewing supplies first. They're around here somewhere...
