Pack Pack Pack it up!

10 Apr

This girl is packing up!

But don’t worry we’ll still be here posting ;) I just wanted to share the good news with you! We bought a house! We are moving at the end of this month so things you have to look forward to coming May – new home updates, new home projects, home decor projects, shopping trips, budgeting, and probably a ton of ridiculous photo’s of me trying to do more than I can handle ;)

Although you might be a little disappointed because all of this:

Will now be packed up in boxes – which makes doing DIY projects a little hard. So until then I’ll be  keeping you posted with things that I can do while I’m in the middle of boxes ;) I’ll be focusing on organizing, spring cleaning, and time management – because we all know I’ll need all of those things in order to get through this move! Haha!

And because I’m just so darn excited about it – check out the new place:

I am so excited I can hardly contain myself! Here are a few projects Brian and I have already decided on doing when we move in:

~ Painting painting painting!

~ Crown molding

~ Buying some new furniture!!

~ Setting up my new craft room & light room for pictures

~ Staining the cabinets (if Brian lets me)

~ Painting my desk

~ A little yard work

What are you excited about seeing?

I’m also excited about the thrift & consignment stores this place has! I’ll be taking pictures so you can check it out with me but I have a feeling just stepping foot in those stores is going to make my project list triple! Luckily this house is really move in ready. There isn’t much to fix but cosmetic things so what you’ll be seeing are finishing touches to make it our own but knowing how I am – I can easily find projects to do ;)

I think I’m especially going to go project crazy since all of my things are going to be in boxes for the next three weeks! Is it just me or is it impossible to not be crafty for that long!? I don’t know what I’m going to do but I have a feeling my pinterest board is going to fill up quickly!

 

Do you have any packing tips to share with me? I’d love to hear them!

Love Always,

Jennifer

    Best of luck! We moved last year. Prepare to sacrifice clothes shopping for home accessories shoping. It’s all you’ll care about for the next few months! :)

    Label your boxes clearly and in big print. Good luck with the move

      Yes! I am awful at labeling things so I decided to buy color coded stickies!

        I moved about 12 times within 6 years during my teens and very early 20′s. I know how chaotic it can get. I always regretted not clearly labeling. In fact now when I move I put where each box should go so as to not have a stack of boxes in the entry way.

        Oh that’s a good idea too! We are feeling pretty lucky – we have a bunch of extra hands to help us :) I’ll have to put a matching color in each room so they know where it goes!

What do you think? Let us know below!
