The Home Stretch

Prize Winning Tulip“Prize Winning Tulip” – Collage, 5 x 7″ on 8 x 10 acid free paper

Just a fun collage that will be available in my Etsy shop as soon as I get moved. I’ve put a vacation hold on both shops. Looking at this image made me wonder if I’ll be brave enough to try growing some tulips at the new place.

Two more days until the moving van comes. Today I’m packing up things like my iMac, the small printer (the big one was already packed a week or more ago), lots of business files from the filing cabinet, and the fax machine. About midday I had to dig the fax machine out of the bottom of a big box containing office supplies because my husband ended up having to send a fax. Oh well. I guess I’ll leave that box open until the bitter end. This laptop stays with me wherever I go!

We are living out of an ice chest until we leave. My second refrigerator has been spoken for (a real clunker, trust me!) so I’ve turned it off and am drying it out for transport to its new home.

    Wow – the countdown really begins. How exciting. And a bit sad and scary too I guess?

      You got it exactly, Cath!! The scary part is worrying about getting my furry babies situated. The exciting part is having a new clean studio and a home to create. The sad part is leaving my wonderful friends and some of my family here.

    Martha congratulations on your homes!!!
    I have been away, and then caught the flu (!!) which left me in bed for 8 days straight.
    Now that I have recovered I see that big changes have been taking place.
    Have a successful and stress free move, hope your furries love their new huge garden and make time to have a relaxing cup of tea and slice of cake.
    best wishes, Annette

    Oh Martha- just in case I miss you signing off, save travel and enjoy the ride. I look forward to reading more about your new home.
    Hugs to you and the pups (and hubby too). xoxo

    Oh I do LOVE this one! What a fun and happy image. And I am so glad that finally you are moving to your lovely new home. I shall have all fingers crossed that the move will be totally hassle free and you’ll immediately feel right at home. I am on a jury this week and expect to be tied up all day tomorrow and some of Friday so am likely to miss your blogs until it is too late to comment. Will tune in again next week. Very best wishes.

      Sandra, we’re touching down at a hotel in our new town for a few days. More updates soon!
