Packing Day & Bonus Days

Thursday, July 7, 2016
Yesterday my dear friend, and fellow Red Hot Stamper, Donne, came over to help me pack up my craft room.  Needless to say I was rather emotional at the start.  This is the first time that I am moving that I didn't WANT to move. My craft room was exactly the way I loved it.  I was so thankful that when I told Donne that I just couldn't think, she stopped right there and we prayed together.  I KNOW that God has a wonderful plan for me and I KNOW that my cousin who bought the condo (she signed all the papers yesterday) will ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT HERE!!
Before we got started I thought I should take some pictures of my beloved craft room.
These 31 totes are filled with my scrapbooks (and there are still a few more).  My sweet daddy painted that owl on the wall for me.
This shelf unit came from a Blockbuster Video store when they went out of business. It is holding my retired stamp sets that I cannot part with (yet).  Dale will be using this unit in his soap making area because they are the perfect depth for his essential oils.
 This is the bookcase that Dale made for me and where I stored my photo albums and so much more.  It will come along to the new house!
 Dale made this cube unit for me as well. You can see how handy it is.  This one will come along too.
This photo shows the tall paper stack rack (for my 12x12 designer papers and card stock) that Dale made - it has wheels on it so I can get to the hidden bookcase (also made by my handy hubby) in the back where I stored things that I didn't get to as often. The workstation that Dale made and is lovingly adorned by Gracie's chalk art work.  I told her that I wanted to keep that picture forever. Everything is a mess - please forgive.  The cabinet under the stairway and the diagonal bin will stay here.  They were designed specifically for that space and the 6 drawer cabinet is bolted firmly to the floor!
Yea! I was so excited when Robin said I can take my Ikea Cabinets with me.  They are a perfect fit for my punches and steel ruled dies (top section) and Ikea does not sell this particular unit anymore.
 This is the view from the bottom of the stairs  - you can see that I have a NICE BIG craft room.
 I leave behind my second kitchen that Dale made for me
 and look at all this storage!  I will definitely miss all this storage. Yes, he made these too!  When we moved in our basement consisted of a studded wall down the center and some crazy orange carpet thrown onto the cement floor.
At the end of the day and all our hard work (thanks Donne!) the cabinets are empty and Dale is taking them all down as I am typing this.  He will need to fill holes and repaint before Robin moves in.
 What a mess! A loving mess!
 Empty shelves means the move will happen soon
The drawers from the Ikea cabinets are filled and stretch wrapped, and ready to move.
We sign the papers in one week from today (Thursday, July 14th).  I am taking this next week to Just Breathe!  I love the song called JUST BREATHE by Johnny Diaz (if you are getting this in your email just click on the title of the post and it will direct you to my blog where you can listen to this song that has come to mean so much to me during this time.
I am taking this next week to do just that, because the chaos will begin soon.
Thank you all so very much for being on this journey with me.
