All Settled in MO


Greeting from Missouri, fellow stampers & friends!!



We left PA back on Oct. 14th and arrived in Joplin, MO on October 15th. The ride here was fun but long! We stopped every so many hours to walk Fluffy and stretch our legs. We had great weather and seen some neat things on our trip here which I will share later. The first week here we roughed it. We slept on air mattresses & sat in camping chairs. Just this past Saturday the moving truck arrived with our furniture, food, clothes and all my precious stamp stuff! The movers had their truck unpacked by noon and then the fun began for us. Today, I finally got my stamp room finished. Now I have to remind you that we are renting a smaller house here in MO so I had to settle on putting my stamp room in the attached garage which isn't too bad. I got some carpet and put on the floor. Have to get a better light & a good heater for in there because today it was alittle chilly in there! I have pictures down below that I took today. All in all it's not too bad. Our move went pretty smooth and after a week & a half here I still get my moments where I miss HOME! Thank God for Facebook and the telephone is all I can say! :)



So, today I could not wait to go play in my new stamp room! I need a card for a friend for her birthday coming up so I used today's Sketch Challenge #304 from over at Splitcoaststampers. Below is the sketch layout and my card.





I got to use some new Marina Mist cardstock and that awesome Floral Fusion Die from Stampin Up! I know the lighting could be better. I haven't dug out my light box yet for pictures and today is a cloudy day here in Joplin. I really like this and hope you do too!



So below are the pictures of my stamp room. Ya just don't realize how much stuff you have untill you move half way across the country! LOL I'm happy my stuff is here and i'm happy to finally be able to create again! Yehawww!!
