IT'S OURS!!!!

It's finally ours!!!! We got the keys in our hands yesterday and we broke in the new house with a sledgehammer!!!! :) So I will be sanding, painting and cleaning this entire weekend and I can't even sit still thinking about it. I want to get to the paint store right now, but sadly work won't let me go home early just because I want to shop for paint. Do they not understand that I will be completely sidetracked and unfocused until I get my paint?!?!! LMAO

Thank you all SO much for your words of encouragement, this was a serious emotional roller coaster and I'm thrilled that it's finally over. I loved getting your comments and emails telling me to hang in there, look at the big picture and I'm not the only one out there that has gone through this crazy crap! Thanks sistahs, love & hugs to you all.....I'll post pics as the changes are made. Sadly, it's going to take a ton of time because we both work full time so we'll only have the few hours in the evening to work on our projects. First thing to get done....STAMP ROOM!!!!!

Happy Friday everyone!! xoxo

Congrats Jillian...I'm so happy for you! I really can't wait to see what you do with the place. :-) But don't work so hard that you can't stamp..that would be at travesty!

Huggs,

Congratulations! It has been a long haul but so worth it in the end. You HAVE to post a picture of the outside of the house right away. We have to know what you are working on. When will you actually move in?

Oh Jill, I'm so happy for you!!! FINALLY a place you can call home. While the renos are a lot of work can be very time consuming remember to enjoy them - you're creating memories in your new home (did I mention memories you can scrapbook with your stamping stuff?) wink!!
