Army Wife Loses Mind Moving

Seriously, I think that could be a headline.  Since we started packing, everything has been neglected.  Now that we're unpacking, it might be worse.  

Recent Revelations:
1. I still dislike moving.  Not the relocation part, but the packing part.
2. No matter how good you think your movers are, there are always hidden surprises.
3. Downsizing from a 1600 sq. ft. house to a 700 sq. ft. apartment is complete INSANITY. 
4. I need to purge.  Purge a lot.  Craigslist might be getting more attention than e-mail.
5. I can sneak a dog into a hotel room, but I can't make him sleep. ;)

So enough of that.  I am still somewhat in boxes.  Especially my scrapbooking stuff.  That may not see the light of day for another week or so.  I may also need to do another giveaway.  Yes, seriously.

Found this today, which made my day!   Domino Magazine has a new home on - check out the growing list here!  I'm currently reading "How to decorate a (very) small apartment"  Love this apartment.

Its amazing how wall paper can change an entire look.  Unfortunately, wall paper is out of the question for us, but something needs to be done!

Also love the "How to control your clutter" article. Uhhh, clutter? Why, yes, thank you - right here!

I definitely have a ton of books and several trays.  Corralling "stuff" in trays is my specialty. 

I realize, none of this has anything to do with scrapbooking, however, pretty things are always inspirational and having a good space to work in seems to be critical.

Happy Hump Day! xo!

Consensus & A New Winner!

Thanks for the feedback.  I have a beautiful box of scrap supplies waiting to go out to: Tracy!

Please send me your mailing address at no later than Friday (I'm learning).  If I don't hear from you by Friday, I will draw another winner.  

Okay, off to clean up the coffee I JUST spilled all over my desk! :) ha!  Happy Hump Day!

Question & Some Inspiration

So...  one of the winners of the giveaway hasn't acknowledged the win and its been 10 days.  Not sure if she missed it or not, but I'm not sure what to do here.  Do I draw another name or do I wait some more.  Not sure what the appropriate Blog-etiquette is here.  :)  Thoughts?  Anybody?  I'm thinking of drawing another name on Wednesday if I don't hear anything.  Really need some thoughts here. 

Spent the weekend cleaning out the garage.  Sorted several footlockers of Army stuff.  Retained a bunch of stuff, including MRE's ("Meals Ready to Eat"), you know, in case the apocalypse comes.  Just so everyone knows, if the apocalypse comes, I'll be eating chicken fajitas. :)  Gotta love boys and their plans.

Doesn't this look appetizing?

xo!  Happy Monday!
