The packing has started!

A warm hi to all my blog land friends. Just a quick post to let you know that we are back home - this time to pack up all our belongings for the big move. Yes, we have started packing already and the first boxes is sitting pretty all sealed and numbered! As from today it is only a short 3 weeks that we have to pack and make all the necessary arrangements for the move. It sure is going to be a lot of work to pack up everything that was gathered in the 4 years we were living in this house, but we will manage. I am sure you all know that the more space you have, the more things you gather! I also started doing rubber stamping during this past 4 year period and who doesn't know how your craft goodies seem to grow and grow when you start a new craft! I am leaving my craft room till last, as I have the next batch of ABC ATC's to make for our rubber stamp group swap. We will be moving on the 30th of August and we are looking forward to starting a 'new life' in a new place.

Happy crafting!!


  1. Oh, Amanda, I wish I could help you! It will be such hard work but I'm sure it will be great when you get there. I do hope you are going to get a good craft space with the move!!?? Good luck and keep in touch. I'll be thinking of you.
    Love Jo x

  2. Hi Amanda,
    Good that you are keeping your craft room till the last... I can imagine what it must be to move... we move countries every three years. And yes, I can understand what you mean by collecting lots of craft stuff.
    Anyway, wish you all the best with your move.
    Lots of love,


  3. Good luck with the packing Amanda, I am sure you will love being in your new home, when once you are all settled there. Take care, warm wishes

  5. I'm not fond of packing up from one place but LOVE setting up the new place :o)

    Enjoy your move and I understand completely why you'd leave your craft room 'til LAST :o)

  6. Thanks Amanda, for appreciating my cards... I can imagine how busy you must be...
    My mum is visiting us after my dad passed away in April. It is nice to have her. She makes cards too which I am able to sell off.


  7. Wow, came across your blog via Monica's - we move countries every 3 to 4 years, so I know what you mean! keeping the crafty goodies last sound a good idea! with all the stress, you need an outlet!! Happy stamping and safe and happy move too! HUgs always! G
